European infrastructure for spectroscopy, scattering and imaging of soft matter

The main objective of EUSMI is to provide an interdisciplinary infrastructure for soft matter research to support about 300 advanced projects in four years. Our strategy is to put the needs of the individual soft matter scientist at the centre of our activities by providing cutting edge, specialized infrastructures that are not available within single institutions or even at the R&D centres of multinationals.

Further, EUSMI aims to provide users with the necessary support in characterizing and investigating of physical properties of new materials on all relevant length and time scales, synthesizing novel soft matter materials, and up-scaling of laboratory synthesis routes. In addition, access will be given to supercomputers in order to gain understanding of these very complex functional materials, thus opening routes for rational design.
