Gewinn Jungunternehmerpreis 2019

Among several hundred applicants, the two TU-Spinoffs Cubicure GmbH and UpNano GmbH ranked place 2 and place 6, respectively,  in the national competition Gewinn Jungunternehmer 2019. Both companies are licensees of intellectual property generated by our group.

Houska Prize 2019: 2nd and 3rd place

On 10. May 2019 the Houska Preis, Austria's most prestigious prize for excellence in applied research, was awarded at the Stahlwelt in Linz. Proposals were nominated for two categories (university research and research in small and medium enterprises), with three winners in each category.

The AMT group of TU Wien was successful in both categories: Prof. Ovsianikov and his team reached the third prize (20.000 Euro)  in the category university research, and Cubicure GmbH (a spin-off from Prof. Stampfl's group) was awarded the second price (60.000 Euro) in the SME category.

ERC Consolidator Grant Aleksandr Ovsianikov

In Nov. 2017, Aleksandr Ovsianikov from TU Wien has been awarded his second ERC grant. He is developing methods for artificially creating biological tissue. Using a 3D printer, based on multiphoton polymerization, minute structures can be created containing tissue components that are each made up of many cells.

3D-printing and Additive Manufacturing Technologies (AMT)

We are a team of mechanical engineers, materials scientists and chemists, headed by Prof. Liska, Prof. Ovsianikov and Prof. Stampfl. Our goal is to do research in the field of lithography-based Additive Manufacturing Technologies (3D-printing). Although our focus is on materials, we aim at covering the complete process chain from initiators over thermosetting polymers to system design and development and thermomechanical characterization of the obtained parts and materials.

More details about our work on multiphoton lithography can be found in a recently published book.

Education and Research

Our group is actively working in numerous research projects ranging from fundamental science to applied and industrial researc. In the last years we coordinated and partcipated in three H2020 projects, three ERC projects and two Christian Doppler laboratories. Furthermore, we were partner in many national (FFG, FWF, Wiener Wirtschaftsagentur) project, as well as international industrial projects.

In addition to our research, we are involved in the education of chemists, mechanical engineers and materials scientists. Classes with close relation to AMT include
