The structure of the Nanoscience and Functional Nanomaterials programme offered at the University of Bristol :

  • featuring two short training projects and one extended research project 
  • provides multiple opportunities for direct contact with leading academics and industry partners across a wide range of research areas. 

You will choose your extended research project after exploring BCFN's research network through your short projects and the teaching programme. Recent project titles have included ‘Tunable Fluorescent Carbon Dots for Digital Display Technologies', ‘Nanoscale Bi/Sb Chalcohalides for Solar Energy Conversion’ and ‘Silk-Bone: a New Spin on Bone-tissue Engineering’.
