National interest in the network

(*funded network)

The following groups are key players in the development of materials physics in Finland and have expressed strong interest in a materials physics network. The funding for networking for the groups listed below will be ensured locally. We expect close coordination and common effort in the organization of scientific events, as described in the operational plan.

    • Laboratory of Applied Mathematics: Prof. Matti Alatalo, Prof. Erkki Lähderanta, Katariina Pussi
  • Oulu University
    • Department of Physics: Prof. Juha Vaara, Prof. Marko Huttula, Prof. Erkki Thuneberg
  • *Tampere University of Technology
    • Department of Physics: Prof. Esa Räsänen, Prof. Tapio Rantala, Dr. Jaakko Akola, Dr. Jouko Nieminen
    • Optoelectronics Research Centre: Prof. Mika Valden, Prof. Mircea Guina
  • Turku University
    • Department of Physics and Astronomy: Prof. Petriina Paturi, Prof. Kurt Gloos, Prof. Kalevi Kokko, Prof. Edwin Kukk, Dr. Jarno Salonen, Dr. Pekka Laukkanen, Dr. Sergey Vasiliev, Prof. Kalle-Antti Suominen
  • *Åbo Akademi University
    • Doctoral Network in Materials Science: Prof. Ronald Österbacka, Prof. Markus Lindberg

With over 50 active professors and/or group leaders interested in the network, a conservative estimate for the number of students involved is over 150. Combined with those from within Aalto-SCI, this results in almost 200 students involved in research relevant to the CMMP network’s target areas.
