Organisation or Individual Expertise:
Glantreo is a dynamic materials science R&D company based in Ireland. Glantreo’s vision is to have Glantreo technology in every laboratory in the world. We will accomplish this via licensing technologies and/or productizing technologies. These technologies will be either developed in house or ‘licensed in’ from academic institutions. Glantreo synthesizes both porous and non porous nanomaterial for application in chemical purification and separations. Glantreo manufacturer’s nanomaterial on a medium to high volume scale (up to kg lot sizes) in GMP and non GMP environments Glantreo has profound knowledge and experience in the area of nanoparticle manufacturing and characterization. Glantreo procedures monodisperse inorganic oxide materials for the chemical separation and purification space. Glantreo has significant expertise in the commercialization of academic research. In the past 3 years Glantreo has licensed multiple technologies from academic institution and commercialized and productized the resulting materials.

Involvement in EU-funded research projects

Glantreo has actively participated in innovative research projects at a national and international level. At a national level Glantreo has been an active participant in four Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) strategic research clusters namely BioNanoInteract (PI Prof Ken Dawson, UCD), Solar Energy Cluster (PI Don MacIIroy, UCD), Irish Separations Science Cluster (PI Apryll Stalcup, DCU) and Solid State Pharmacetical Cluster (PI Kieran Hodnett, UL). We would like to think that our research partners hold us in high regard and this is borne out by the regular requests we receive to join different consortiums. At an international level the following are examples of projects and proposals that Glantreo have participated in: NanoInteract (STREP FP7) PI Prof. Ken Dawson (UCD, Dublin) Development of a platform and toolkit for understanding interactions between nanoparticles and the living world BIOTRACER_IP (Integrated Project FP6) PI Prof Martin Wagner (Univ. of Vet. Med., Vienna)
