Earlier this year, the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) awarded a grant to Prof. Scott Trager for WEAVE. This is a multi-object spectograph which will be used in conjunction with the 4.2-m William Herschel Telescope. WEAVE can simultaneously unravel the light from a thousand stars and galaxies and measure their speed. Such information provides information about the creation of the Milky Way and better insight into dark material and dark energy in the universe.
The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
M1 grants have an amount of around EUR 360,000 and are intended for realizing curiosity-driven, fundamental research of high quality and / or scientific urgency.
Eleven partners from three countries (The Netherlands, Spain, and Cyprus) and the European Science Engagement Association have developed teaching modules on biodiversity, water management, and bird migration.
Their project has the title ‘ Sustainable Mobility through STEM Education’ (SMILE).
