European Project MEMO

MEMO: Mechanics with molecule(s)
October 2017 to September 2021
European Project H2020 FET OPEN
Grant Agreement : 766864

MEMO will construct and test true single molecule-machinery controlling the rotation and the work delivered by a molecule, one at a time. MEMO will bring together different science and technology disciplines to determine the motive power necessary to rotate the rotor of a single molecule-motor, to transmit its rotation to another molecule and to reach step by step mesoscale solid state gears for also constructing a mechanical calculator (Pascaline) at the atomic scale.


MEMO is coordinated by TU-Dresden and is regrouping the Technische Universität Dresden (TU-Dresden) in Germany, the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in France with the CEMES and the C2N, the Agencia estatal consejo superior de investigaciones cientificas (CSIC) in Spain, the University of Graz in Austria, the Université de Liège in Belgium and the University of Manchester in UK.
