The EIMM is a European association providing organizational, technical and financial support vision in the area of Molecular Magnetism.
The strategic interest of research in Molecular Magnetism was highlighted by the European Commission in 2005 through the awarding of the Network of excellence MAGMANet. With more than 20 nodes, belonging to 10 different countries, its goal was to give rise to a Durable Integrating Structure (DIS). In the aftermath of this Network, its partners created the European Institute of Molecular Magnetism (EIMM) on March 18, 2008. In 2014, EIMM became an international non-profit association under Belgian law.
The Purpose of EIMM is to provide organizational, technical, and financial support to its partners. For this, the Institute will promote and coordinate their participation in activities aimed to help them in several areas such as scientific development, training, research funding, searching of industrial partners, technology transfer and creation of spin-offs, and conception of enabling technologies and solutions along the value chain.
The EIMM vision is that of becoming a center of excellence in Europe for research and training as well as a world-leading reference in the area of Molecular Magnetism.
