Please find below our latest newsletter, with news and events linked to the MARVEL community.
Most importantly, the big news this month is that SNSF has awarded MARVEL full funding plus the highest possible bonus for its third and final phase, which will run from May 2022 until April 2026. As a result of being in the top tier of SNSF's ranking of NCCRs, MARVEL will therefore receive a bonus of 1.53 MCHF in addition to its regular budget of 10.8 MCHF.
We introduce Anirudh Raju Natarajan who is a newly appointed EPFL professor who will participate in the next phase of MARVEL.
Research continues to produce exciting results, and this month you can read about the identification of new paraelectric phase prototypes for use in computational engineering of functional materials.
Note too the extensive event program involving prominent experts in the fields covered by MARVEL. In the next few months, MARVEL will be hosting Distinguished Lectures by Profs. Garnet Chan and Alán Aspuru-Guzik, and a CECAM-MARVEL Mary Ann Mansigh conversation featuring Erich Wimmer.
