The main objective of the Action is to increase the knowledge and understanding of molecular electronic, photonic, magnetic and spintronic behaviour and to design new active chemical systems and processes that could find use in molecular devices. The collaborative research will be centered around the following three general areas:
    1. Design and synthesis of molecular building blocks and their organisation into molecular systems with new photonic, electronic, magnetic and spintronic behaviour.

    2. Search for and investigations of photonic, electronic, magnetic and spintronic properties and processes ranging from a singlemolecule level to understanding of environmental effects, molecular cooperativity and build-up of organised molecular nano- and micro-size systems. Physical, mechanistic, time- and space- dependent studies will proceed from a fundamental level to property-evaluation for possible device applications.

    3. Methodology development: quantum-chemical methods to simulate environmental effects and dynamical processes, time and space- resolved methods, laser control in condensed phase, property-evaluation procedures.
