We are pleased to send you the first issue of the industrial e-letter put together by the NCCR MARVEL, the Swiss Center on Computational Design and Discovery of Novel Materials, created in May 2014 by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
With EPFL as the leading house, MARVEL is directed by Prof. Nicola Marzari and currently involves 41 principal investigators across 12 Swiss academic institutions.
MARVEL’s research program includes a range of activities in application fields such as energy harvesting and storage, CO2 capture, information & communication, small molecular compounds for pharmaceuticals or chemistry, structural alloys, etc. Our research labs also develop and implement novel theories and algorithms. Moreover, we disseminate the codes, data and workflows of the project through our AiiDA materials' informatics platform.
We are interested in developing broad industrial partnerships focused on the discovery of materials with specific properties or on new methodological approaches, over a medium- to long-term perspective. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information, and please follow us on Twitter (@nccr_marvel) to keep up to date with the latest news.
