Phase III

Phase III is continuing the efforts on materials discovery and on method development with core investigators, ramping up activities on disruptive technologies (machine learning, first and foremost, while proposing a project on integrating quantum and classical computing), and phasing in a post-2026 sustainable model. All of this is aimed at the overarching goal of rethinking and deploying a model for computational materials science and for the innovation pipeline in materials design and discovery embedded in the Swiss (and broader) scientific and technological landscape. Long-term sustainability is ensured through a number of key efforts. 

In phase III, MARVEL's mission takes form across the following six core activities:
