Material genetics will be pursued by the AMULET project

The scientific team of prof. Jana Kalbáčová Vejpravová from the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University as a co-investigator succeeded in Project by Programme Johannes Amos Comenius of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports. The Jana’s team will participate in research on Advanced Multiscale Materials for Key Enabling Technologies under the leadership of the Jaroslav Heyrovský Institute of Physical Chemistry of the CAS. Specifically, it was the Excellent Research Call aimed at supporting research with the potential for excellent results applicable in practice.

The development of advanced materials with the required parameters and their integration into functional structures while maintaining their maximum utility value is the common denominator of modern materials research. Current directions in materials science draw inspiration from nature, where beyond naturally occurring elements and compounds, nature enables so-called material genetics, i.e. the targeted folding and „cross-breeding“ of material components in 3D space.
