The Centre of Excellence “Advanced materials and high-technology devices for energy recuperation systems” focuses on the development of functional materials for environmentally friendly and sustainable energy technologies, sensorics and nanoelectronics. The research teams of the centre of excellence collaborate to develop the full spectrum of energy sources, storage and conversion devices; design and synthesise the necessary materials and components and study their physical, chemical and technological properties, as well as design and test laboratory and small-scale prototypes. The general goal is to develop basic and applied knowledge on materials and devices for innovative society and to educate specialists in innovative energy and materials technologies.

Viimastel aastatel on inseneriteadus tunginud jõuliselt bioloogiasse, võimaldades luua täiesti uudsete omadustega süsteeme. Selliste tehnoloogiate abil toodetakse nii maitseaineid, kütuseid kui ka ravimeid. Biotehnoloogiaid kombineeritakse tulemuslikult ka keemiaga. Näiteks võib bioloogiliselt toodetud eellasmolekuli keemiliselt modifitseerides teha ravimi. Samuti on võimalik keemiliselt sünteesida elusrakke spetsiifiliselt mõjutavaid kemikaale.

Tippkeskus toob kokku uurimisrühmad, millel on pädevus erinevate bioloogiliste süsteemide modifitseerimisel ja kemikaalide loomisel. Rakendusviisidena nähakse uudsete lahenduste loomist jätkusuutliku biomajanduse tarbeks, rakuliste biosensorite loomist ja uudsete bioaktiivsete ühendite väljatöötamist.
