Soft-Matter Nanotechnology to Create Artificial Life Forms


Owe Orwar, Professor of Physical Chemistry at Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden), has received a SEK 25 million research grant from the European Research Council (ERC) for a nanoscience programme entitled “Soft-Matter Nanotechnology to Create Artificial Life Forms”. It deals with the complex control of soft materials on a nanoscale – a combination of chemistry, physics and biology which will lead to new technologies based on cell-imitating functions.
