The RASPA software is a general purpose classical simulation package especially suited to study adsorption and diffusion in nanoporous systems. The iRASPA package is an advanced visualization package. We regularly organize workshops and school to teach students advanced, state-of-the-art molecular simulation techniques through practical use (in addition to theory).
