Metallacrowns-based innovative materials and supramolecular devices
This IRSES project has the objective to design innovative functional magnetic or fluorescent materials and probes based on metallacrown complexes.

The project involves six research groups from five countries (Italy, Poland, France, Ukraine and USA) with complementary expertises and the common aim to develop new metallacrown complexes with novel magnetic, photophysical and structural properties be used as tools in bio- or nanotechnological devices.

Our aim is to set up a common platform to promote and strengthen their joint activities through the support of the secondments of their researchers. Through this network, we will carry out collaborative research, and we will train young researchers at the early stage of their career.

This IRSES eventually aims to establish and support multilateral transfer of knowledge and expertise among the involved EU and Extra-EU research teams. On one hand this will stimulate the aggregation of scientists into an EU to worldwide network on the research on functional materials and molecular devices, increasing in turn the competitiveness of ERA and its attractiveness to foreign researchers. On the other hand, this network will promote the set up of new future research projects and new long-term collaborations between the partners.
