“The Scientific Advisory Board continues to be highly impressed and inspired by the results obtained in MARVEL. (...) With the presence of a critical mass of world-leading researchers in the Centre, it is exceptionally well positioned to advance computational materials science and to discover technologically transformative materials.”
--Professor Giulia Galli of the University of Chicago, Chair of MARVEL’s Scientific Advisory Board.
This is just some of the praise coming our way as the SNSF awards us full funding of 18 million Swiss francs for our second phase, running until April 2022. This new tranche will let us build on the work done in Phase 1, leveraging our great community to pursue six ambitious Design-and-Discovery projects, two Incubator projects and the structural efforts of our “Open Science” and “HPC and Future Architectures” platforms. In the newsletter below, you can read more about the SNSF’s evaluation, new funding for Materials Cloud, prizes awarded to MARVEL members and some of our excellent research. We wish you a great start to the new year and continued success in all your projects.
