Under the direction of theoretical chemist Teresa Head-Gordon and laser spectroscopist Richard Saykally, several groups at UC Berkeley have established the local research consortium California explores Solvation (CALSOLV). Since 2014, Berkeley scientists address the intricate details of solvation in close collaboration with the researchers in Germany. The RESOLV/CALSOLV partnership thrives on topics such as X-ray spectroscopy of liquids and solutions, enzyme catalysis, and ab initio calculations of solvated structures and chemical reactions. The RuhrCal collaboration has started to produce

integrated Graduate School Solvation Science The integrated Graduate School Solvation Science (iGSS, Dean: Prof. Dr. Stefan M. Kast) builds upon the success of the Graduate School Solvation Science, which was born out of the Cluster of Excellence RESOLV at the beginning of 2013. The iGSS is an education and training program for graduate students within RESOLV that supports the early research careers of solvation scientists. Doctoral degrees are granted by the appropriate faculty, which include the departments of chemistry and biochemistry, chemistry and chemical biology, physics, and
