The University of Novi Sad, UNS, was founded in 1960 as an autonomous institution for education, science and arts. Nowadays UNS is the second largest state university in Serbia, with more than 47.000 students on bachelor, master and PhD level, comprising 14 faculties and 2 research institutes, located in the four major cities of the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina (Novi Sad, Subotica, Zrenjanin and Sombor). The main University Campus in Novi Sad, covering an area of 259,807m² approaching the river Danube bank, provides the University of Novi Sad with a unique and beautiful setting with all the additional facilities for student life (student center, sport and medical center, dormitories, apartments for young scientists). Having invested considerable efforts in enhancement of quality of teaching and research, UNS is recognized as a modern, internationally and research-oriented university on the map of universities in Europe.
Faculty of Technology, founded in 1959 as a higher education and research institution, is located in the main University Campus in Novi Sad. Nowadays TF UNS is covering broad spectra of study programs, having more than 1500 students on bachelor (240 ECTS), master (60 ECTS) and PhD level (180 ECTS) in the following mayor fields:
- Food Engineering:
- Chemical Engineering
- Pharmaceutical Engineering
- Material Engineering.
More than 120 teaching staff and 70 young researchers are engaged in educational activities and research projects. Having the experience and recognizable results in corresponding research areas and long-term cooperation with the industry, TF is actively participating in both national and European projects (FP7, EUREKA, Tempus, IPA Cross border Cooperation, WUS, Bilateral Cooperation), with the cooperation agreements signed with a number of higher education and research institutions worldwide. TFUNS, on contract basis, collaborates and offers engineering and other services to industry, including process project/design, transfer of technology, consulting/information, studies and expertise, quality control, technological support and services, scale-up, start-up, supervision and others.
TFUNS is the Project Coordinator, the TFUNS Project Team covering the broad spectra of tasks, starting from project management and RTD coordination, to laboratory synthesis of photocatalytic precursor coatings, active suspension preparation, investigation of their photocatalytic and antimicrobial activity, as well as investigation of application techniques for these suspensions onto selected mineral substrates. TFUNS will be responsible for the overall monitoring and control of the Consortium ensuring the efficiency of activities, accomplishment of Work Packages with the specified time frame and quality of the outcomes. Four laboratories of TFUNS will actively participate in the research: Laboratory of Material Science, Laboratory of Physical Chemistry and Catalysis, Laboratory Analytical Chemistry, Laboratory of microbiology, as well as complementary laboratories at the University of Novi Sad, providing the research infrastructure for textural, thermal, surface, microstructural, chemical, physical, microbiological analysis of the original and new materials developed in the project, as well as photocatalytic testing of value-added new materials and in situ testing of their performances.
