Active Matter: From Fundamental Science to Technological Applications

Project description

Training network on active matter

Active matter – material systems whose constituent particles consume energy and generate mechanical motion – has become a major subject of research, promising to revolutionise wide-ranging fields from medicine to robotics. Such systems present many facets of non-equilibrium physics and provide tantalising options to perform tasks not easily achievable with other available techniques on the nanoscale. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme, the ActiveMatter project will train a new generation of physicists in this highly interdisciplinary field. Researchers will work with cutting-edge numerical and experimental tools to develop biocompatible active particles, further understand their synergistic behaviour in complex and crowded environments, and engineer self-assembly systems. Detailed studies on active matter will help in harnessing it for nanoscale applications.
