Magnetoelectric materials: why now and why in Europe?

What makes ME materials so special is their ability to simultaneously respond to external electric and magnetic stimuli

Research methodology and approach

BeMAGIC is organized in 8 interdisciplinary Work Packages

Intersectorial approach and synergies

BeMAGIC gathers a world-class balanced combination of fundamental and applied multi-disciplinary scientists/engineers across Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, Engineering, or Biotechnology
