Welcome to MEMO - Mechanics with Molecules!

The European FET OPEN project MEMO (Mechanics with Molecules), started in October 2017, has the goal to construct and test single molecule machines on a surface one at a time, controlling3D_printed_mechanical_calculator the rotation and the work delivered by a single molecule-motor directly at the atomic scale. MEMO will create the first miniaturization roadmap for mechanical machinery.


The MEMO project is coordinated by Francesca Moresco at the TU Dresden (Center for Advancing Electronics) and brings together six partners at the forefront of European research for the development of molecule-machines and nanofabrication: the Technische Universität Dresden (TU-Dresden) in Germany, the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in France, the Agencia Estatal Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas (CSIC) in Spain, the University of Graz in Austria, the Université de Liège in Belgium, and the University of Manchester in UK.


MEMO project receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 766864. The project is expected to run vom October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2021.
