About CiSMAT

CiSMAT (Carinthia Institute for Smart MATerials) is a newly founded center, dedicated to the research and development of innovative solutions based on Smart Materials, for the industry and society of the future. It is part of the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences (CUAS), and is supported by the KWF (Kärntner Wirtschaftsförderungs Fonds).

CiSMAT conducts research in the fields of:

  • Integrated piezoelectric sensors
  • Acoustic metamaterials
  • Phase-changing materials

CiSMAT works closely with a network of local and international companies, which it also supports in their transformation efforts towards a more efficient, more secure and greener industry.

CiSMAT - Research Fields

CiSMAT for Entrepreneurs

 

Beyond our specific areas of research, we wish to use our varied and complementary skills to help our students, colleagues, partners and start-up founders to test the technical feasibility of new concepts and possible innovative solutions to challenging problems. This work is carried out in particular within the framework of « Innochecks » projects, and Master theses. Technical feasibility studies can also be strongly supported by the KWF (see “Start F&E” Program).

Here, we also collaborate with the WING Department (Industrial Engineering and Management) at CUAS.

Education@CiSMAT

We offer advanced trainings in the fields of Smart Materials & 3D printing.

Our 1st CiSMAT Certificate Course on Smart Materials & 3D Printing has been completed in June 2021.

The next course “Smart Materials for a Greener Economy” will begin in March 2022. For more information and registration please click here

We also offer free webinars on Smart Materials & 3D Printing. Please click here, for more information about the next Webinar.
