It is a good and believe healthy to show not only the successfully approved projects but also the proposals that were revoked or not funded.
“We are at a pivot point, thanks to computers humanity will change more in the next 10 years than in the previous 300 years”
Could you imagine to conceive materials by design? That fulfill our needs: low cost, easy production, non-polluting and incredibly efficient in their tasks. In near future, algorithms running efficiently in supercomputers will propose which are the materials –composition and structures– to look at. This is the aim of the proposed Ambizione project (2016). Our approach is not the “one more standard materials-high-throughput-design” rather a smart way to conceive, computationally, novel materials relying on well grounded physics.
This project proposal was submitted to SNSF (Switzerland, 2016). For the call Ambizione 2016. Unfortunately this project was not granted.
