About centre


Main aim for establishing NCC is to enhance complex model of efficient cooperation of RO departments and development capacities of businesses for growth of technological competence in the area of smart components and technologies.

Results of R&D will bring new and innovated production of smart components and systems which can be utilized in several technical areas. These are especially industrial plants in machinery and processing industries, logistics and power industry. NCC will be a partner for new concepts of machinery and system design. At the same time, NCC will cover several potential applications for non-industrial fields (medicine diagnostics, implants, etc.).
