He is the series editor of the Advanced Materials book series published by Scrivener Publishing and co-published with John Wiley & Sons; Series Editor of the Advanced Nanomaterials Series, published by Elsevier in collaboration with VBRI Press and a founder member & chair of Advanced Materials Congress and Graphene Forum, USA, Europe and Asia; Smart Materials and Surfaces; International Conference on Material Science and Technology and Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology. Prof. Tiwari serves as scientific evaluator, member of experts in several panels and committee to various governmental and non-governmental agencies; member of PhD committee, and have been invited for 50+ plenary, keynote and invited lectures in the international conferences.
IAM is dedicated to accomplishing a sophisticated level in different technologies that are helpful solving global problems through dedicated endeavours focusing on competitive and friendly technologies. These areas are creating interesting results that are increasing our knowledge to the existing research in areas of energy, water technology, advanced materials & engineering, healthcare technology and sustainable developments maintaining core and shared facilities, vocational training, technological entrepreneurship and fostering collegial exchanges of international expertise.
The Institute of Advanced Materials focuses on developing new functional materials and has collaborators in Sweden and abroad. IAM follows a consortium approach for development of its technologies and for providing the total science and engineering package to its collaborators.
The research objectives include to keep the orientation of the most focus aspects of environmental friendly nanomaterials and nanotechnology for example, stimuli-responsive nano-systems engineering to industries and end users, particularly those involved in the material and biocatalysis sectors for solving real practical environmental problems connecting the development of innovative analytical methods, as support tool to the interpretation of processes. Further, our research targets particularly challenges posed to modern society by key emerging medical issues so-called trace and/or new emergent super-thin medical diagnostic tools. These objectives are also including the development, testing and validation of advanced methodologies and biomedical indicators related to research needs arising from recent and envisaged medical devices such as digital healthcare and mHospitals.
