The goal of Catsense is to design novel high performance catalysts and biosensors based on gas-phase metal clusters. Catsense is an FP7-ITN-Marie Curie European training project for young researchers in nanotechnology. It started on January 1st, 2014.
Catsense is formally part of the 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 interdisciplinary young researchers in nanotechnology and to contribute to the reduction of the fragmentation of the nanotechnology sector in Europe.
Catsense aims to accelerate the pace of discovery of novel high performance nanomaterials. The Catsense project is based on a strong collaboration between the public and the private sector.
