Le logo de l'EPFL     NCCR MARVEL

The NCCR MARVEL is a centre on Computational Design and Discovery of Novel Materials created by the Swiss National Science Foundation in May 2014.

MARVEL targets the accelerated design and discovery of novel materials, via a materials’ informatics platform of database-driven high-throughput quantum simulations, powered by

  • advanced electronic-structure capabilities, for predictive accuracy
  • innovative sampling methods to explore configuration/composition space
  • application of big-data concepts to computational materials science

The search is focused on materials for energy harvesting, storage, and conversion, materials for information-and-communication technologies, and organic crystals/pharmaceuticals.

Codes, data and workflows of the project are disseminated through the Materials Cloud platform and the Quantum Mobile virtual machine, both powered by the materials' informatics framework AiiDA.

MARVEL is directed by Nicola Marzari and EPFL acts as the leading house, but the NCCR involves 33 principal investigators across 11 Swiss Institutions
