4. ARISTOTELIO PANEPISTIMIO THESSALONIKIS

Description and main tasks

Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh) is the largest University in Greece. It consists of 45 Departments covering all scientific & technological disciplines with a total staff of around 9.000 people. The AUTh Research Committee provides administrative & financial support to EU and national funded R&D projects, technology transfer and royalty arrangements. The MUSICODE activities will be performed by the Nanotechnology Lab LTFN (www.ltfn.gr), which is established in the Physics Department of AUTh. LTFN is internationally acknowledged as a pioneer in Organic Electronics (OPVs, OLEDs, OTFTs, biosensors, etc), Plasmonics, Nanomedicine & Nanobiotechnology, Thin Film Technology & Nanoengineering, Real-time/In-line Optical Technology and Nanometrology, real-time/in-line precision Metrology, Computational & Modelling at nano to microscale, Automation and Digital Manufacturing.
