Multiphysics Hub @ Empa

Empa's Multiphysics Hub aims to support computational modelers by facilitating software access at an institutional level and by fostering interaction between researchers.

To this end, we make multiphysics software (COMSOL, ANSYS, ...) accessible for each employee or academic guest at Empa. At the same time we organize events, such as technical workshops and Topical Days.
