Institute of Chemical Engineering Sciences

The Institute of Chemical Engineering Sciences (ICE-HT) was established in 1984, as an Independent Academic Institute (initially under the name Institute of Chemical engineering and High Temperature Chemical Processes). In 1987 ICE-HT became one of the founding Institutes of FORTH (Foundation for Research and Technology, Hellas).

FORTH comprises eight Research Institutes (5 in Heraklion, 1 in Rethymnon, 1 in Chania, and 1 in Patras) and has been classified in all previous research assessments as "the first Research Centre in the whole of Greece". FORTH reports directly to the General Secretariat for Research and Technology (GSRT) of the Hellenic Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs. The eight Research Institutes of FORTH cooperate creatively as an integrated network for RTD.

During its operation ICE-HT has been developed into a world-leading centre for the advancement of high quality scientific knowledge in the fields of chemical engineering sciences. Currently, ICE-HT runs ca 46 RTD projects in cooperation with numerous industrial enterprises, universities and research institutes from Greece, as well as from other EU-member countries, USA, Japan, etc. These projects are funded by national and EU competitive R&D programs, and also directly by industrial enterprises.

Characterization & Testing

The Facilities include a wide range of available equipment for materials characterization and testing such as: state-of-the-art AFM, TERS Raman, Accelerated Ageing Chamber, and more.

Facilities: Fabrication

Equipment for fabrication processes are available such as state-of-the-art CVD, semi-industrial Autoclave, and more.
