The Programme

The aim of this research programme is to create supramolecular systems and materials that feature the three fundamental principles of life and that are able to autonomously operate out of equilibrium. The programme is organized around three projects (P1, P2 and P3) that focus on self-assembly, self-sustainability and self-replication, respectively, and one project that is aimed at making the step to out-of-equilibrium materials and devices (P4).

P1 – Self-assembly
P2 – Self-sustainability
P3 – Self-replication
P4 – Out-of-equilibrium Materials
