We are pleased to send you the fifth issue of the Industrial Newsletter of NCCR MARVEL, the Swiss Center on Computational Design and Discovery of Novel Materials, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
Good news! The SNSF has awarded 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 evaluation, new funding for Materials Cloud and some of our excellent research.
In phase 2, we will foster the development of 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.
