Chemistry, Materials and Interfaces

Chemistry of Material and InterfacesAbout us

The idea of CMI initiative emerged after observing the French-Singaporean research landscape in terms of institutional collaborations: Singapore is hosting 4 CNRS UMI, and despite the existence of fruitful collaborations in the area of Chemistry, Material and Interfcaes, this topic was not developed in any of the joint French-Singaporean UMIs.

CMI aims at coordinating and articulating the French-Singaporean research activity in the area of chemistry, materials and interfaces (from basic modeling and surface characterization to bio-inspired and bio-analytical applications)
