Lublin Info Centre
CeBMaT – new project by Lublin University of Technology
This state-of-the-art centre will be the only scientific facility in the region performing research in energy, environmental engineering, material engineering and the engineering of opto- and mechatronic systems which are necessary to control technological processes. The university is seeking to acquire 13 specialist research stations equipped with nationally unique devices, including a CT scanner and a transmission electron microscope. Additionally, as part of the project the Centre will be equipped with a scanning electron microscope, a liquid chromatography system coupled to mass spectrometry and a simulator of thermomechanical processing.
The equipment will be used to develop materials characterized by strictly defined structure parameters and properties, for instance implants, composites, laminates or sorbents. At the centre, scientists will also carry out research on energy generation, functional materials, recycling of waste and analysis of their cycle using advanced computer systems and deep learning algorithms. The equipment will be used not only by the university staff, but will also serve the purposes of businesses that are interested in performing specific tests and research.
The total value of the investment amounts to almost PLN 43 million, and it will be completed within the next 3 years. Over PLN 36 million is co-financing from the Smart Growth Operational Programme 2014-2020, while the remainder comes from the university’s own funds.
The machinery and equipment purchased under the project will be located in the Centre for Innovation and Advanced Technologies of the Lublin University of Technology.
