Press Release

A Chicago-based consortium including the Computation Institute has been awarded $25 million over five years from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce, to establish a new center of excellence for advanced materials research. The Center for Hierarchical Materials Design (CHiMaD) will focus on developing the next generation of computational tools, databases and experimental techniques to enable the design of novel materials, one of the primary goals of the Obama administration’s Materials Genome Initiative (MGI).
