The COST Action CA20129 "Multiscale Irradiation and Chemistry Driven Processes and Related Technologies" (MultIChem) aims to establish a broad international interdisciplinary, intersectoral cooperation to advance the fundamental understanding of the multiscale irradiation-driven processes and related technologies, paving the path towards major scientific and technological breakthroughs, and socio-economic impacts. By means of pioneering computational methods and modern experimental techniques, the Action will exploit irradiation-driven chemistry in selected applications and related technologies such as methods of controlled nanofabrication, nanocatalysis, development of novel types of radiosensitising nanoparticles, and radiotherapies.
- The main aim and objective of the Action is:
- to radically advance, through state-of-the-art theoretical, multiscale computational modelling and experimental studies, the fundamental understanding of irradiation-driven chemistry processes involving complex molecular systems (biomolecular systems, deposited metal nanostructures, metal-based nanoparticles, and composite materials) exposed to radiation, and
- to enable implementation of this knowledge in biomedicine, nanofabrication, and energy conversion technologies.
