MARVEL Toolbox


Publications count only if they have the proper acknowledgment. When NCCR personnel is involved, you need to add an explicit acknowledgement to MARVEL:

This research was supported by the NCCR MARVEL, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation.

You may also add to your regular address:

National Centre for Computational Design and Discovery of Novel Materials MARVEL, Institution, City, Switzerland.


The MARVEL logo has always to be used together with the SNSF logo and the text element saying "The National Centres of Competence in Research (NCCR) are a research instrument of the Swiss National Science Foundation". For an example, see below at the bottom of this webpage.

If you need the SNSF logo, you can find it here or contact us.


If you need any other communication material (different logo, letterhead, general presentation, ...) feel free to contact us.

Open access publications and data

The SNSF, like other major funding agencies, requires grantees to make the results of SNSF-funded projects available in an open access publication or database and expects research data to be freely accessible to everyone – to scientists as well as to the general public – provided there are no legal, ethical, copyright or other issues.

SNSF project number

When filling proposals for the SNSF, if you need to mention links to SNSF research and wish to refer to any project/sub-project within the NCCR MARVEL phase II (years 5 to 8), the project number is 51NF40-182892.
