The inclusion of nuclear motion, including quantum effects like zero-point-energy and tunneling in high-dimensional anharmonic systems, represents a considerable challenge in atomistic simulations. I will discuss methodology based on the combination of electronic structure theory and the path integral formalism that is fully applicable to systems where a high number of anharmonic degrees of freedom are relevant. As paradigmatic examples, I will discuss effects of nuclear motion on the charge transfer at hybrid material interfaces, intramolecular hydrogen transfer dynamics, and the impact of electronic friction on tunnelling reactions in metallic environments.
