With a support from the Strategic Area Grant provided by the Swedish Government in 2010, Linköping University has established an International Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Advanced Functional Materials (AFM). AFM encompasses 240 researchers organized into interactive collaborating teams. We envision that science focused on the atomic/molecular-scale design of new materials will provide solutions to broadly based societal issues, including jobs, health, energy, environment, and sustainability. Our work is highly competitive. AFM has been evaluated as excellent to outstanding by the Swedish Research Council VR, the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research SSF, and VINNOVA.
