The activities of the Centre are multidisciplinary, linking basic and applied research to technology development, and focused on the issues of sustainability, namely in terms of the needs to secure the quality of the environment, together with the management of energy resources and the economic development. To achieve these objectives, the activities of the Centre are directed towards leading-edge developments and to promote the learning ability of graduate engineering students with the following specific goals:
- To improve knowledge in advanced fields of strategic technologies with emphasis on turbulent mixing and combustion processes, which have the potential to optimise the environment and the rational use of energy in industry;
- To develop and use advanced techniques for the analysis, monitoring and control of processes at laboratory and industrial scale, the later including technology and risk assessment.
- To promote the exchange of knowledge in advanced technologies for the optimisation of industrial processes, including the management of technology and innovation, as a way to promote competitive advantages at the corporate level;
In this context, besides the development of basic research in energy and environmental-related processes, the Centre thus undertakes interdisciplinary research involving technology and policy, promoting ways in which industrial development can proceed in a sustainable and socially responsible manner.
- To derive science and technology policies and innovation strategies, namely in terms of environmental protection, rational use of energy and economic growth.
