Welcome to MaxWater

The importance of water across many disciplines of science and engineering cannot be overstated. The goal of the initiative MaxWater is to develop a molecular-level understanding of complex aqueous systems, with the final aim to predict and engineer the behavior and macroscopic properties in these systems. This initiative aims to substantially accelerate the research required to tackle crucial challenges in this important field, by combining techniques and expertise currently scattered across different disciplines.
