Projects and Collaborations

The group actively participates in projects covering both fundamental and applied aspects of chemical measuring sciences. Currently, there are the following ongoing projects and collaboration networks:

Simultaneous Multiparameter Readout for Nanoparticle Sensors

Joint project on the design of an integrated multiparameter measurement for nanoparticle detection funded on the Austrian side by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). This is a collaborative project with the group of Professor Patrick Wagner, Laboratory of Soft Matter and Biophysics, KU Leuven

AquaNOSE: Fabrication of multi analyte nanosensors for biological targets

Project funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG). It aims at designing fully integrated, printable sensor systems that are inherently mass-producible. The group at UNIVIE collaborates with three companies. The lead partner is Profactor GmbH.

Aktivitäten im Rahmen von Asea Uninet

Seit 2009 kooperiert die Gruppe erfolgreich mit inzwischen einer Reihe von Universitäten in Südostasien. Die wichtigsten Partner sind Kasetsart University, Chulalongkorn University, Srinkharinwirot University, Mahidol University and Kong Mongut’s University of Technology in Bangkok, Thailand, sowie Ubon Ratchatani University, Khon Kaen University und Prince of Songkla University (Hat Yai). Ein Alumnus der Gruppe forscht inzwischen an der Univ University of Medicine & Pharmacy, Ho Chi Minh Stadt.

Closed projects

EU-FP7-SEC-312330 „ISIS“ (2014-2016) Within this project, the group designed novel MIPs for implementing pathogen detection in security-related monitoring systems.

EU-FP7-NMP-280550 “INSTANT” (2012-2015)  This project saw the first steps in developing molecularly imprinted polymers that selectively bind engineered nanoparticles.

EU-FP7-NMP-263382 “PHOTOSENS” (2011-2014) Within this project, UNIVIE developed strategies to implement MIP into printable photonic sensors targeting toxic compounds in air and in liquids.

TEMPUS JPCR 158918 “CANDI” (2010-2013) EU-funded education project for implementing E-learning tools in a curriculum developed during a previous TEMPUS project (COCUZ). The EACEA declared this project best-practice model for TEMPUS IV in Uzbekistan.

TEMPUS JEP  “COCUZ - Computational Science with Chemistry Applications for University Training in Uzbekistan” (2005-2009).
