CISSE is a multi-site Doctoral Network aimed at enabling finest quality research training and transfer of knowledge in an interdisciplinary, inter-sectoral, and revolutionary research field.
The CISSE consortium members carry out research at the forefront of a number of interlinked theoretical and experimental disciplines involving: molecular design, synthetic chemistry, organic materials, nanoscience, electrochemistry, chirality, surface chemistry, industrial scale up, development of analytical methods and instrumentation.
CISSE offers a training programme in which theoreticians, spectroscopists, synthetic chemists, physicists, & industrialists will work on the complex and unsolved questions related to chirality and spin. CISSE gathers an interdisciplinary network of experts, from 6 universities and 2 industrial organisations, who will deliver a high-level doctoral education to 10 DCs. 6 associated partners (4 academics, 1 non-profit cultural organization and 1 private company) will complete their scientific and managerial training.
CISSE will educate DCs as professional scientists, but also as innovators and future leaders. The intensive training programme that takes advantage of secondments (2 per candidate) offers DCs the unique opportunity to carry research at the forefront of science.
