Electrospinning has attracted increasing interest as a promising technology to fabricate nanostructured materials with manifold applications in different industrial fields.

The Research Group on Electrospinning (RGE) at University of Bologna has an interdisciplinary nature and arises from the common desire of the partners to gather their knowledge to study and further develop this technology platform.

RGE intends to be a network research center dedicated to investigate on electrospinning. RGE proposes itself as an international reference center through:

  • Integrated interdisciplinary research
  • Creation of a relationship with the productive world
  • Spread research outcomes to the economical-productive system and to the society

The RGE projects are developed in continuity with the projects that are currently ongoing within the participant groups. The RGE multidisciplinary approach allows the integration of goals of the groups involved in each single project. 

This is of particular importance for the development of a technology like electrospinning that is characterized by a broad versatility and requires multiple competencies unavailable in a single disciplinary field.

The creation of RGE allowed converging these competencies. Such a convergence brought along innovative ideas, integrated project methodologies, and cultural approach complementarities.

RGE aims also to be a concrete answer to the increasing industry demand for collaborations and technical support in the development of electrospinning technology and its applications.

Electrospinning is nowadays internationally recognized as one of the key nanotechnologies of the future. Electrospinning is currently the most economic, versatile, and efficient technology to fabricate materials made of nano and/or micro fibers aiming at producing highly porous membranes and matrices. Pore dimensions and fiber surface topology can be modulated. In contrast with other conventional textile techniques, electrospinning can be applied to a broad variety of materials: synthetic and natural polymers, inorganic materials, etc.
The process behind this technology is based and ruled by highly complex phenomena that require electrostatic, automation, mechatronic, physics, chemistry, and macromolecular chemistry competences.
