The National Centres of Competence in Research (NCCRs) are financed through grants awarded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) but also by other funding sources including the home institution (EPFL in the case of the NCCR Marvel). The goal of the NCCR MARVEL, Materials' revolution: Computational Design and Discovery of Novel Materials, is to transform and accelerate the design and discovery of novel materials in order to achieve improved properties and performance, or to witness the emergence of original physical properties.
