In collaboration with EPFL

Welcome on board

The goal of the NCCR MARVEL is to radically transform and accelerate invention and discovery in science and technology, and especially to transform and accelerate the design and discovery of novel materials in order to achieve improved properties and performance, or to witness the emergence of original physical properties. We will achieve this goal by exploiting the predictive accuracy that quantum-mechanical simulations have now reached for realistic, complex systems, the treasure trove of ever-increasing computational power ideally suited to intrinsically parallel problems, and the powerful synergies arising with the computer science of heterogeneous data management, data mining, and machine learning.

  • Ig Nobel Award Tour Show 2018

    March 27 2018 at EPFL, Forum Rolex

    Come and enjoy, laugh and think at the Ig Nobel Award Tour Show 2018 on Tuesday March 27 at EPFL, to learn about homosexual necrophilia in the mallard duck, to discover how using a didgeridoo can treat obstructive sleep apnoea and snoring, and to find out when  some people would be physically capable of running across the surface of a pond.

  • MARVEL site visit 2018

    from 10 to April 11 2018 at EPFL
