EUSMI aims to enhance the European competitiveness in soft-matter research and innovation through the integration and the extension of the scope of existing specialized infrastructures. A full suite of coherent key infrastructures and the corresponding expertise from 15 top-level institutions are combined within EUSMI, accessible to a broad community of researchers operating at different levels of the value chain, including SMEs and applied research.

The infrastructures cover the full chain of functional soft-matter material research, ranging from advanced material characterization by a full suite of specialized experimental installations, including large-scale facilities, chemical synthesis of a full set of soft-matter materials, up-scaling of laboratory synthesis, to modeling by high-performance supercomputing. The existing infrastructure will be continuously improved and advanced by Joint Research Activity (JRA).

An ambitious networking program ensures efficient dissemination and communication, supporting continued education of established researchers and training of emerging scientists. EUSMI drives academic research and innovation in soft nanotechnology. It provides a multidisciplinary set of essential research capabilities and expertise to guide users. It also develops the next generation of techniques and instruments to synthesize, characterize, and numerically simulate novel soft matter materials. It contributes to the creation of a broad knowledge basis.

EUSMI provides the community of European soft-matter researchers with an open-access infrastructure as a platform to support and extend their research, covering characterization, synthesis, and modeling.
