Pierangelo Metrangolo appointed as visiting professor to CoE HYBER

CoE HYBER is strengthen by professor Metrangolo and his expertise in self-assembly properties of halocarbons and their interactions with biomolecules.

The Academy of Finland's Centre of Excellence in Molecular Engineering of Biosynthetic Hybrid Materials research 2014-2019 (HYBER) welcomes Pierangelo to join the centre as visiting professor.

 

Metrangolo is full professor at the Department of Chemistry, Materials, and Chemical Engineering “Giulio Natta”, Politecnico di Milano since 2011.

His research interests include crystal engineering, fluorine chemistry, supramolecular, and biomimetic materials. In particular the Nanostructured Fluorinated Materials group focuses on the study of the self-assembly properties of halocarbons and their interactions with biomolecules for applications in the fields of functional materials and nanomedicine.

He is the holder of an European Research Council (ERC-StG2012) grant to carry with the project “FOLDHALO – Folding with Halogen Bonding”, aimed at investigating the relevance of halogen bonding in biological systems. Aalto University, the Department of Applied Physics act as an other benficiary of the FOLDHALO ERC-StG2012 grant.

Constructive interaction a key factor in remote teams seeking solutions to societal problems

When remote teams work to solve challenging and complicated problems, the abilities of individuals to verbalise thoughts and to create verbal contact with the thoughts of others get special emphasis. Teams that participate equally built interface surfaces between each other with the help of contemplative statements and open questions.

Collaboration between Aalto University and ABB leads to pioneering innovations in sustainable development

We are developing world-class technologies together as the shipping sector is shifting to using electronic, autonomous and emission-free solutions. We collaborate closely also in technologies related to digital twins for electric drives and 5G solutions for power grids. The driver behind the development is electrification accelerated by the energy transition.
