During the last years, there has been great theoretical-experimental effort in order tounderstand the role of quantum effects in energy transfer through coupled systems. This project is dedicated to this problem and its main goal is to set a theoretical treatment of quantum transport under many different physical scenarios. In particular, vibrational couplings in systems of biological interest, energy transfer efficiency as a function of Markovianity and the role of dimensionality in the space state of spin reservoirs will be studied. The analysis will cover problems in biophysics, nanotechnology and quantum informations and this testifies the interdisciplinary approach of the project. The results may bring new elements to the understanding of the frontier between classical and quantum physics since the studies are aimed at the manipulations and understanding of quantum effects in systems of great structural complexity.
