Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), France


The Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) is the largest governmental research organisation in France and the largest fundamental science agency in Europe. The Institut Charles Sadron (ICS) is a « Unité Propre de Recherche » (UPR22) of the CNRS. It is affiliated with the Université de Strasbourg (UDS). ICS is a multi-disciplinary research laboratory devoted to basic research in the fields of “Macromolecules and Soft Matter” with applications in Materials Science.


CNRS/UDS (ICS and the materials science center) have all required resources and instruments for performing state of the art research for this proposal. The ICS has major central facilities for polymer research. Synthesis of new polymeric materials, the physical chemistry of interfaces, micromechanics, surface forces, carbon nanotubes or polymer theory and simulation are relevant core competences of the ICS. Prof. Decher is the founder of the LbL-technology that permits to fabricate multimaterial films with nanoscale precision on substrates of various size and shape. This technique allows to integrated in such films synthetic polyelectrolytes, proteins, colloids and nanoparticles, fibers, inorganic clusters and small organic molecules, thus offering a larger choice of components than any rival coating technology.

LbLBRANE receives funding from the European Comission within the 7th Framework Programme under Grant Agreement no. 281047
