BioExcel established a strategic partnership with Scuola Normale Superiore (SNS), Pisa.

The Scuola Normale Superiore is an Italian public institute for higher education and research that in its two centuries of life has earned itself a special place, both in Italy and abroad, a place characterised by merit, talent and scientific rigour. A highly qualifying feature of the Normale way is the strong link between teaching and research that is a characteristic of both the undergraduate and the graduate programmes of the Scuola, in line with the highest international standards.

The Scuola Normale Superiore has very active groups in the field of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry linked with several international networks and societies (such as the Italian Biophysics Society, the European Society for Photobiology and the Italian Institute for Nuclear Physics and the Human Brain Project).

BioExcel is engaging in joint research work with SNS researchers on further development of multiscale modeling techniques. Our organizations are also organizing thematic meetings and dedicated schools in the area of biomolecular modeling using hybrid multiscale methods.
