Committed to new technologies, the CTCR has a Department of Nanotechnology with a research team made up of specialists in nanotechnology and new materials. Nanotechnology is a science conducted at the nanoscale (1 nm = 10-9 m). Working on such a small scale enables the design of materials with improved properties, making it possible to reduce costs and simplify the production process. Nanotechnology applied to the footwear industry is contributing towards renewing this business sector, innovating not only the design and ergonomics, but also by creating new materials with better qualities and thus meeting the growing needs of the consumers. The application of nanotechnology in the footwear sector can be very varied, ranging from an improvement of the materials that constitute a shoe, to special personalized designs.

The Nanotechnology and New Materials Department of the CTCR offers following services:
