Mid term review
VolkswagenStiftung grant I/78 340

Room: Phys 4.1.13, University of Regensburg

The Nachwuchsgruppe "Molecular Computing" started on January 2003 within a large grant initiative of the Volkswagen Foundation. As in the lines of the Foundation policy, our research activity has been (very positively!) evaluated in the middle of the granting period.
