Prof. Veronique Van Speybroeck from the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture, UGent and head of the Center for Molecular Modeling ( was awarded with the Dr. Karl Wamsler Innovation Award 2023 on November 9, 2023.  This... more
Crumple zones form a critical safety measure to protect passengers during vehicular incidents. In a recent Matter article, researchers at the Center for Molecular Modeling (CMM) translated this safety concept to the atomic level. By designing... more
As next-generation materials for applications in the chemical industry, energy conversion, and more become increasingly complex to meet the stringent requirements, so does their atomic-level structure. This complexity makes it very challenging to... more


Recently, we launched psiflow v2.0.0. Psiflow is a modular and scalable library for developing interatomic potentials. It uses Parsl to interface popular trainable interaction potentials with quantum chemistry software, and is designed to support... more
Sven Rogge has been awarded a Starting Grant 'STRAINSWITCH' by the European Research Council (ERC). With this grant, he is poised to establish his research team at the CMM, with a focus on computational materials modelling. Given enough time,... more
During last summer four of our young researchers successfully defended their PhD. Underneath you find an overview of their research topics. Congratulations Michael, Ruben, Liesbeth and Alexander! Michael Freitas Gustavo New tools for high-... more
