Current projects

VIMmP

VIMMP will establish an open-source, user-friendly, powerful web-based marketplace linking beneficiaries from different manufacturing industry sectors with relevant materials modelling activities and resources. To enable a seamless and fully integrated environment, VIMMP is built on solid taxonomy and metadata foundations, including those centred on materials models, software tools, communities, translation expertise and training materials.

Past projects

Biosolarcells

BioSolar Cells is a five-year research project whereby academic institutions and industry cooperate to find new methods to convert solar energy into fuel; produce biomass with a high yield; and to improve photosynthesis in plants, algae and artificial systems. The BioSolar budget of € 42 million was raised through public and private funding.

NanoNextNL

NanoNextNL is a consortium of more than one hundred companies, universities, knowledge institutes and medical centres. It intends to foster research into micro and nanotechnology. NanoNextNL has a budget of approximately 250 million euros.

Bio-mimetic

Bio-Mimetic aimed to set up a pre-industrial, bio-polymerization process, to develop marketable, bio-inspired products. The project intends to produce a new class of polymers by using natural, renewable compounds. First and foremost, the project aims to make use of green enzymatic processes.

Prace

Culgi, together with the National Technical University of Athens (Greece), University of Trieste (Italy), and the Institute on Membrane Technology (Italy), have been granted 1.5 Million standarized core hours in the PRACE DECI-10 call (2014). The resulting thermodynamic database containing 11000 molecules is freely downloadable from our website.

SELFMEM (NMP3-SL-2009-228652)

The aim of SELFMEM was to develop innovation in the field of nanoporous membranes. This will be achieved by taking advantage of the self-assembly properties of block copolymers leading to highly porous membranes with adjustable, regular-sized pores of tailored functionalities. Both polymeric and inorganic (silicon) membranes will be developed.

NANOMODEL (FP7-NMP-2007-SMALL-1, No 211778)

The goal of NANOMODEL was to develop, implement and validate multi-scale methods to compute the mechanical, thermochemical and flow behav-iour of nano-filled polymeric materials – based on the chemistry of selected model systems.

MULTIMATDESIGN (NMP3-CT-2005-013644)

MULTIMATDESIGN aimed at an improved understanding and the knowledge-based design of multi-functional polymeric materials. The said materials combine controlled permeability to selected small molecules with various other properties needed to ensure processability, durability and multible end-uses.
