Center for the synthesis, processing, and characterization of materials for use in extreme conditions “Cextreme Lab” within the Institute of Nuclear Sciences, Belgrade University was founded in 2015. Soon after its founding, the center is accredited in September 2015 by the Committee for Accreditation of Scientific Research Institutions and it is the only officially accredited Center of excellence of the largest institute in the country.
The Center is engaged in research that requires an interdisciplinary approach; ie. basic and applied research in the border area of basic sciences (chemistry, physics, biology) and engineering. Therefore, the research groups from different fields have joined, ie. Laboratory made to work on the same task and efficiently solved problems, with the aim of increasing the necessary human resources and research infrastructure, and the capacity to perform specific and current research activities, as well as connect with other scientific-research institutions and centers in the country and abroad. The laboratory within the Center is formed not only for fundamental research but also for specific development and applied research.
