New paper out!
The European Centre for Nanostructured Polymers (ECNP) conference 2023 has just concluded! Here are MaST group’s contributions!
We had the great honour of hosting Prof Christian Kukla from the Montanuniversität Leoben for a terrific seminar titled “Indirect 3D printing of metals and ceramics“
Visit us and our Shape memory deployable structures at our stand at Gazometro, Rome!

Material Science and Technology group
Material Science and Technology research group is part of the Department of Enterprise Engineering of the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”.
Lead by professor Francesca Nanni, the group works on the research and the technology transfer in material science. Our research topics encompass polymers, composites, ceramics, metals and cementitious materials, with special focus on multifuctionality, additive manufacturing and sustainability.
Our work focuses not only on basic research, but is also and particularly aimed to the technology transfer, in view of a strong connection with the engineering applications needed by our many industrial partners.
We have facilities for material testing and characterization, thermoplastic polymers processing and molding, rubber compounding and vulcanization, ceramic and metal sintering, corrosion testing, and thick coating manufacturing.
