Novel materials for urgent energy, environmental and societal challenges
With the aim of advancing computational materials science to facilitate systematic studies and predictions of novel materials, the Novel Materials Discovery (NOMAD) Centre of Excellence (CoE) is working to address urgent energy, environmental and societal challenges. The list includes catalytic water splitting (hydrogen production) and the transformation of waste heat into useful electricity (search for efficient thermoelectric materials). The EU-funded NOMAD CoE project will develop a new level of materials modelling, enabled by upcoming exascale computing and extreme-scale data hardware. Results will be tested in two use cases. Among its many actions, NOMAD CoE will strive to train the next generation of students.
