ENW-KLEIN grant for Prof. Pchenitchnikov and Dr. Jansen

18 September 2020

Prof. Maxim Pchenitchnikov and Dr. Thomas Jansen of the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials ( ZIAM ) have been awarded an ENW-KLEIN grant worth EUR 700,000. The grant is for their project ‘Self-assembly pathways of an artificial light-harvesting complex’. The aim of the project is to study how thousands and thousands of molecules organize themselves into highly-ordered functional structures without external guidance. The key to elucidating self-assembly intermediate stages and their kinetics is to confront the spectroscopic data with those predicted by theoretical calculations.

The ENW-KLEIN grant offers researchers the opportunity to establish scientific innovations that can form the basis for the research themes of the future. In this round, sixteen applications have been awarded by the board of NWO.
