We are pleased to send you the fourth 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. With EPFL as the leading house, MARVEL currently involves 35 principal investigators across 12 Swiss academic institutions.
Our NCCR is now entering phase II with a new structure featuring six Design & Discovery projects as well as two Incubator projects centered on specific materials. All the details can be found in the news that follows.
From September, Materials Cloud has been open to everyone outside MARVEL to upload quality, curated data. It's an official partner of Nature Scientific Data, and it fulfills all the criteria that the SNSF or the EU require for data management plans. It is actually considered a model that is far ahead of the curve : http://materialscloud.org .
In phase II, 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.
