Avant-garde Materials Simulation

Avant-garde Materials Simulation

Founded in Paris by Dr. Marcus Neumann in 2002 Avant-garde Materials Simulation SARL (AMS) is privately owned and was created thanks funding and strong support from a major pharmaceutical company. The company’s main goal is the development of software for crystal structure prediction (GRACE initiative).

In 2007 AMS opened a subsidiary, Avant-garde Materials Simulation Deutschland GmbH, in Freiburg, Germany, where all contract research is carried out.

Thinking outside the box

Our software development priorities are chosen in close collaboration with our partners. The strong focus on the oingoing improvement of our methods is meant to help our customers make decision about API in their daily work. In this perspective we have to go where no one else has gone before.

Ethics and Sustainability

To reduce the company´s CO2 emissions, AMS makes strong efforts by applying following measures:
