Our aim: broaden the horizions of young scientists

The COMPASS project was active from March 2016 to February 2020 and united key players in Europe and the US with the aim to advance the field of colloidal nanocrystal (NC) synthesis and assembly and their exploitation in photonics, sensing, energy conversion and medicine. Young scientists were formed by "training by research" in long term stays at host labs and by lecture series held in the network that cover specific research topics, technology transfer and management/communication skills, leading to an interdisciplinary and international formation. The exchange consolidated existing initial links between some of the lead scientists in COMPASS and establish a long-lasting network that has strong impact on science and education with significant repercussions in industry.
