Abstract:
The research groups of Photovoltaic and Optoelectronic Devices (DFO); Functional Materials (MM); Clinical and Experimental Neuroscience-CIBERNED (NiCE) and Inorganic Chemistry at the Universitat Jaume I de Castellón (Spain) have opened a multidisciplinary and cooperative line of research that will enable to gather skills in physics, chemistry and biomedicine to study the field of nanomaterials and nanotechnologies.

Four groups at the UJI set up a multidisciplinary cooperative research consortium to advance in medicine, energy and catalysis

Valencia, Spain | Posted on May 1st, 2013

The most prominent scientific research supports interdisciplinary collaboration among different fields due to its advantages to address new areas of research "in which innovative ideas and high-impact discoveries generally arise", explains Juan Bisquert, professor of Applied Physics at the UJI.

Among the advantages of this scientific model based on the exchange of knowledge from a multidisciplinary perspective there are "the complementary use of skills, knowledge and resources in unconventional ways to help address new objectives of research", as indicated by the doctors María Trinidad Herrero, professor of Anatomy and Embryology, and Beatriz Julián, lecturer of Inorganic Chemistry, "particularly at a time when we are forced to exploit original resources, due to the greater competition that exists for usual funds, which are becoming smaller."

In the end, it is a scientific model that combines efforts to leverage the quality of research outcomes. "We intend to conduct cutting-edge research with a strong international presence, as well as the practical application of the results of our investigations. Excellence in research requires commitment and specific actions", ensures Eduardo Peris, professor of Inorganic Chemistry.

Cooperation between researchers from these groups, who have an excellent rating according to internationally accepted markers, has begun with a programme of seminars and workshops to provide the basis of common research goals. Specific research projects in the field of early disease detection and fuel production with sunlight have also been established and will be launched soon.

Quality and not quantity is the challenge of this cooperative multidisciplinary science that promotes international high-impact research and has among its priorities a strong knowledge transfer to become practical applications that improve citizens' lives and give support to an economic system based on the understanding and effectiveness of production systems.
