Catsense, whose goal is to design novel high performance catalysts and biosensors based on gas-phase metal clusters is a new FP7-ITN-Marie Curie European training project for young researchers in nanotechnology that has started 1st January 2014.

Catsense is formally part of Marie-Curie Initial Training Network that has received funding from the European Union under the grant agreement number 607417.


Catsense's innovative concept is to consider metal clusters science as a new emerging supra-disciplinary field bridging (electro) catalysis (directly applicable to fuel cell technology) and biosensing technologies. Its goals are to train contribute to the reduction of the fragmentation of the nanotechnology sector in Europe and to accelerate the pace of discovery of novel high performance nanomaterials.
