NOAH - GA 765297

Project Coordinator: Prof. Pau Ballester, ICIQ

Network of Functional Molecular Containers with Controlled Switchable Abilities


From 01/01/2018 to


The general scientific aims of the NOAH scientific research program are the development, characterisation (structural, thermodynamic and kinetic) and transfer to applications of different types of molecular containers (i.e. covalent, dynamic covalent, hydrogen bond or metal coordination-based containers). To do this, NOAH will recruit 10 ESRs (including two industrial doctorates) each with a 36-month contract who will have the possibility to defend a PhD thesis at the end of their individual projects. Each PhD student will be hosted in a beneficiary institution and will receive additional training by undergoing relevant secondments at the industrial and other academic partners’ facilities.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement 765297
