Welcome to NANO-GLASS

NANO-GLASS is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (MSCA-ITN-2020) focused on research in glass materials and their nano-structuring. This project is aimed at developing disruptive nano-structuring design and methods for advanced innovative glass screens for a better display of information as well as new optical fibres for information security. NANO-GLASS will include the training of four Early Stage Researchers, who will address the challenges of developing a wide range of glass-based products.
