About Design of Materials with Atomic Precision
What is the aim of the Design of Materials with Atomic Precision call?
This call for proposals invites Japan and Europe-based researchers to develop new designs of material with atomic precision. Materials sciences is a field of fundamental research which encompasses a diverse range of research areas with a wide set of applications relevant to our daily lives, society and industry. Materials deisgned with intrinsic properties specifically tailored to the target application, thanks to the deliberate modification of their structure and composition at an atomic level, will bring a step forward in the field of multi-functional advanced materials design and development for multiple social and industrial applications.
We welcome research proposals taking cross-sectoral approaches, which bring natural and social sciences together. Proposals that involve various non-academic participants, such as practitioners, industry and other individuals and groups of the general public are also encouraged.
What is EIG CONCERT-Japan?
The European Interest Group (EIG) CONCERT-Japan is an international joint initiative to support and enhance science, technology and innovation (STI) cooperation between European countries and Japan. EIG CONCERT-Japan is flexible and inclusive in nature, and can accommodate a range of forms of collaboration, from unanimous concerted efforts to optional participation among its core members and other interested STI institutions.
The primary function of the EIG CONCERT-Japan is to implement multilateral joint funding collaboratively, with the objective of enhancing cooperation and promoting transnational mobility between European countries and Japan in various fields of STI.
