Facilities

FORTH/ICE-HT is located at Rio, a suburb of the city of Patras, which is the largest city of Western Greece and Peloponnese (both convergence regions of Europe). It has its own facility of 6200 m2 on a tract of land having area of ca. 20000 m2. The facility is at a fine site, which overlooks the bays of Corinth and Patras, as well as the new and well-known "Ch. Trikoupis" cable bridge. It is located 2 km NE of the campus of the University of Patras and close to the facility of the Patras Science Park.

The Institute has received regional funds under competitive bidding for the erection of two buildings (a conference facility and new research labs). The first one of those will be complete by summer 2014 and the other by 2016. The new construction will give further boost in activities related to actions in the nanotechnology and energy sectors.

The laboratory and support-service facilities of ICE-HT are of high specifications and excellent capability. Research units such as the integrated high vacuum system (XPS, UPS, AUGER, TDS, EELS, etc.), the micro-RAMAN spectrophotometer, and others, are rare or even unique in Greece. Furthermore, the Institute has acquired recently new equipment, such as, CVD furnaces for graphene production and a new AFM/Raman system. These additions in conjunction with recently acquired equipment for air-pollution make the Institute an important Centre of Excellence for chemical engineering sciences not only in Greece but also in Europe.
