The SILCC project (SImulating the life Cyle of molecular Clouds) is a very successful collaboration of various European astrophysical institutes lead by Prof. Dr. Stefanie Walch-Gassner. It's aim is the successful modelling of the entire life cycle of molecular clouds from the formation from the diffuse ISM to the dispersal by stellar feedback.

The underlying simulations make use of the FLASH code to whose developement we contribute.

The SILCC project has resulted in a great number of publications and its data are publicly accessible online. Further details on the project can be found on the official SILCC webpage.
