* Research activities and aims

The Center of Computational Quantum Chemistry was conceived with a two-fold purpose:
a) to establish a School of Computational Quantum Chemistry in Israel, in order to meet the requirements of modern chemical research in the next century. As such, the Center will aim to lay foundations for quantum chemical "know-how" and "thought-culture", where experimental chemistry and quantum chemistry constantly interact, interplay and enrich each other aiming to solve important chemical problems in a wide variety of areas of contemporary relevance;
b) to promote the collaboration with German Quantum chemists and experimentalists interested in the application of quantum mechanical methods to their research problems.
