Laboratory of Supramolecular Chemistry for Adaptive Delivery Systems
ERA Chair initiative
Horizon 2020 WIDESPREAD 2-2014: ERA Chairs
Project no  667387

The strategic objective of the SupraChem Lab Project is to unlock and foster excellent research in PPIMC IntelCentre by setting up a strong research group in the field of hybrid materials for adaptive self-organized supramolecular structures.
It is an already stated political demand to support the public or private R&I performers in the convergence regions in exploiting their potential to fully contribute to the development of their country/region and to the overall European research effort. Romania joined this policy through the Sectorial Operational Programmes and the National Research Programmes that stipulate measures to increase the R&I capacity of the country, to stimulate the cooperation between RTD institutions and enterprises, and to increase the access of enterprises to research and innovation. However the participation of Romania in the European Research Area is still low due especial to the lack of experience in research management and marketing.
The funding, coming from the EU's research and innovation funding programme, Horizon 2020, has offered the opportunity for excellence institutions from the European converging regions to attract top academics so that they can compete with centres of excellence elsewhere in the European Research Area (ERA). The selected institutions have to award ERA Chairs to outstanding academics who have the capacity to raise standards and attract more high level staff as well as money from other sources, such as EU research funding or regional funds. The SupraChem Lab Proposal project will implement a structural change within in “Petru Poni” Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry - IntelCentre, Iasi, Romania by setting up a competitive research group in the field of supramolecular chemistry.
