CeNTI - Centro Nanotecnologia Materiais Técnicos, Funcionais e Inteligentes

CeNTI – Centre for Nanotechnology and Smart Materials is an institute for new technologies, founded in 2006 by CITEVE, University of Minho, University of Porto, University of Aveiro and CTIC.

CeNTI services take a multi-disciplinary approach and include the participation of experienced technologists and researchers (physicists, chemists, electronics/ chemical/materials engineers). CeNTI is a distinct European research and development centre, equipped with cutting-edge technologies, and conducting world-class research and development.

CeNTI provides, in a business to business approach, applied R&D, engineering and scaling-up production of innovative smart materials and devices, with special focus in electronics (organic electronics and embedded systems), polymers (fibres and coatings), functional materials (nanomaterials and processes) and products numerical optimization (buildings and materials).


CeNTI is an active member of two European Associations: Organic Electronics Association (OE-A) and Energy Efficient Building (E2B).
