In collaboration with the University of Bern

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.
