CATSENSE - Design of novel high performance catalysts and biosensors based on deposited mass-selected clusters assisted by computational theoretical screening

European Community (EU FP7 Marie Curie ITN) (from 2014-01-01 to 2018-01-31)

Grant closed
The goal of Catsense is to design novel high performance catalysts and biosensors based on gas-phase metal clusters. Catsense is an FP7 - Marie-Curie Initial Training Network for young researchers in nanotechnology. It started on January 1st, 2014 (grant agreement number 607417). Catsense's innovative concept is to consider metal clusters science as a new emerging supradisciplinary field bridging (electro) catalysis (directly applicable to fuel cell technology) and biosensing technologies. Catsense aims to accelerate the pace of discovery of novel high performance nanomaterials. The Catsense project is based on a strong collaboration between the public and the private sector.
