Twinning to boost the scientific and innovation capacity of the Universiteti i Tiranes to develop sustainable nanosensors for water pollution detection

Project

SUSNANO's overall aim is to boost the scientific excellence and innovation capacity in sustainable nanosensors for water pollution detection of Universiteti i Tiranes (UT) and its high-quality Twinning partners: Fundació Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia, Univerzita Palackého v Olomouci and Intelligentsia Consultants Sàrl. 

SUSNANO's overall aim is to boost the scientific excellence and innovation capacity in sustainable nanosensors for water pollution detection of Universiteti i Tiranes (UT) and its high-quality Twinning partners: Fundació Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia, Univerzita Palackého v Olomouci and Intelligentsia Consultants Sàrl. 

To achieve this aim, SUSNANO will implement a research and innovation strategy over 3 years based upon 5 objectives implemented via 5 corresponding WPs: 
Objective 1: Conduct exploratory research on sustainable nanosensors to detect water pollution in Albania The goal is to develop innovative sustainable nanosensors to detect heavy metals, pesticides and antiobiotics. The validated sensors will be used in field tests to provide an environmental assessment of rivers and lakes in Albania. 
Objective 2: Transfer knowledge between experienced researchers (ERs) of UT and the Twinning partners The goal is to organise short term staff exchanges, trainings and seminars for UT’s ER’s and the Twinning partners’ ERs to complement the preparatory research undertaken in Objective 1. 
Objective 3: Enhance career prospects of early-stage researchers (ESRs) of UT and the Twinning partners The goal is to enhance the career prospects of UT’s ESRs and the Twinning partners’ ESRs by organising short- and medium-term exchanges, training workshops/seminars, summer schools & joint PhD programme. 
Objective 4: Improve UT’s management and administrative capacity for European R&D programmes The goal is to improve the skills of UT’s Directorate of Scientific Research, Projects and Foreign Relations in proposal preparation, project management and innovation management for European R&D funding programmes. 
Objective 5: Raise the research profile of UT and the Twinning partners The goal is to raise the research profile and scientific reputation of UT and the Twinning partners through a comprehensive range of dissemination, exploitation, communication & outreach activities.
