Interdisciplinary work with materials for clean energy applications

Advanced Nanomaterials for Clean Energy and Health Applications (ANCEHA) was launched in 2013. We are conducting research on advanced nanomaterials for photovoltaic and water splitting applications, energy storage, tissue engineering applications and on energy policy and management.

ANCEHA research group has collaboration with a number of industrial partners both in Norway, Sri Lanka and India under INCP, UTFORSK and NORPART programs funded by The Norwegian Agency for International Cooperation and Quality Enhancement in Higher Education (Diku) and the Norwegian Foreign Ministry.

We have research partnerships with a variety of institutions in Norway, UK, India, South Korea and Sri Lanka. The research group carries out activities both in Norway and Sri Lanka at schools in order to inspire and encourage school children to work with clean energy technologies.

EOV partner HVL and UiB work jointly in ANCHEA on the focus area of health applications.

Within this applications  the focus in on tissue engineering and bone regeneration. The research group is mainly working on designing and simulation studies of efficient and optimum scaffolds for stem cells. Synthesis of scaffolds are then done using novel materials.

This research is carried out with the renowned ‘Tissue Engineering’ research group at Faculty of Dentistry at University of Bergen.
