Lay Summary (English)

Lead
Lay summary
This is a collaborative project between the Chemistry Departments of the Universities of Belgrade, Serbia (Prof. Snezana Zaric), the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (Prof. Liudmil Antonov) in Sofia, Bulgaria, and the University of Fribourg, Switzerland (Prof. Katharina Fromm). Together, we will organize teaching and research workshops on all three sites with a focus on supramolecular chemistry. This will involve the teaching personnel of the departments as well as invited speakers and is open to students and PhD students of all three universities. The project will allow for both, students and teaching personnel to travel to the three different sites, fostering interactions and synergies in terms of research and teaching.

Abstract

Molecular chemistry has, over many years, developed a wide range of very powerful procedures for constructing ever more sophisticated molecules from atoms linked by covalent bonds. Beyond molecular chemistry lies supramolecular chemistry which aims at setting up highly complex chemical systems from components interacting via noncovalent intermolecular forces.Supramolecular chemistry may be defined as 'chemistry beyond the molecule,' bearing on the organized entities of higher complexity that result from the association of two or more chemical species held together by intermolecular forces.By the appropriate manipulation of noncovalent interactions, supramolecular chemistry became the chemistry of molecular information, involving the storage of information at the molecular level, in the structural features, and its retrieval, transfer, processing at the supramolecular level, through molecular recognition processes operating via specific interactional algorithms. A further step consisted of the design of systems undergoing self-organization, i.e., systems capable of spontaneously generating well-defined supramolecular architectures by self-assembly from their components under the control of the molecular information stored in the covalent framework of the components and read out at the supramolecular level through specific interactions. Self-organization processes thus represent the operation of programmed chemical systems leading to the specific generation of well-defined entities.The design of such molecular information-controlled, "programmed," and functional self-organizing systems provides an original approach to nanoscience and nanotechnology, offering a powerful alternative/complement to nanofabrication and to nanomanipulation. All this makes supramolecular chemistry a truly multidisciplinary research subject with great potential for the future technology development. And logically brings need for suitable teaching.In the current Institutional Partnership we unite the efforts of Department of Chemistry (University of Fribourg), Faculty of Chemistry (University of Belgrade) and Institute of Organic Chemistry (Bulgarian Academy of Sciences) in creating of suitable educational background for teaching in supramolecular chemistry in the Balkan area. This geographic area, for long time a synonym of violence and poverty, is now in process of transition, success of which crucially depends on the availability of well-educated and motivated young people. With SupraChem@Balkans.eu we plan to create a solid background in the modern teaching in supramolecular chemistry and to implement the high Swiss educational and research standards. This will be achieved by number of activities:- Teaching activities, which aim to develop new curricula for teaching in supramolecular chemistry and to provide conditions for concentrated advanced training by organizing Summer schools;- Training initiatives, which are directed to increase the capacity of the staff of the partner institutions to do research and education in supramolecular chemistry through personnel exchange and organizing workshops;- Reorganization of the research and renewal of the infrastructure in order to strengthen the training and research capacity of the participating Balkan institutions.Number of important outcomes is expected in respect of the institutional capacity building, but the most substantial benefits are expected for the young people (students and young researchers). This IP provides a unique opportunity to build up an educational profile and research career. We will provide basic (Summer schools) and advanced (Workshops and exchange scheme) teaching by using the complementary expertise (solid state - solution - gas phase; theory - experimental studies) of the partner groups. Through the exchange schemes the trainees will have the opportunity to work in different scientific and cultural environment and to establish new contacts and friendships. Variety of additional skills like management abilities (acquired in the organization of the events), writing proposals, presenting results, etc. will be gained by the young people to support their future education and career.
