New EU FET Open Project: MEMO Kick-off Meeting on November 2-3, 2017
Published on in NEWS
The EU FET Open project “Mechanics with Molecules” (MEMO) officially started with a two days kick off meeting at the TU Dresden. The project is coordinated by Francesca Moresco, cfaed group leader of the Single Molecule Machines Group.
The aim of the project is to construct and test single molecule-machines on a surface and one at a time, controlling the rotation and the work delivered by a single molecule-motor directly at the atomic scale. MEMO will create a roadmap for fabricating a planar mechanical calculator from the macroscopic to the atomic scale.
MEMO brings together six partners with outstanding scientific records, at the forefront of European research for the development of molecule-machines and nanofabrication for the atomic scale: TU Dresden in Germany, CNRS in France, CSIC in Spain, the University of Graz in Austria, the Université de Liège in Belgium, and the University of Manchester in UK.
