The Dutch Research Agenda (NWA) has granted EUR 1.8 million to the consortium coordinated by
Prof. Matthias Heinemann
of the Groningen Biomolecular Sciences and Biotechnology Institute (
). The interdisciplinary consortium of chemists, biologists and physicists will investigate what limits the growth of cells.
This knowledge is important for tackling numerous societal challenges. Dutch citizens will get involved through novel strategies for communicating fundamental science, co‐developed by artists, media designers and scientists.
The 1.8 million has been awarded in the second round of the NWO's National Science Agenda (NWA) program: Research on Routes by Consortia (NWA-ORC). Within a NWA-ORC consortium, a team works on interdisciplinary research. The entire knowledge chain, both public and private parties, works closely together. Several other consortia involving researchers of the University of Groningen and the Faculty of Science and Engineering, have been granted an NWA-ORC.
The grant is for her project ‘ Cosmic ray antideuterons as a probe for new physics’.
When is sugar in fact healthy? Sugar has a bad reputation – and that's a shame, as sugar isn't always bad. Chemist Marthe Walvoort explains more in a video lecture for the Universiteit van Nederland.
Extreme weather events are projected to change due to climate change, the risk to societies are therefore also changing. In a new study , Dr. Karin van der Wiel (KNMI) and Prof. Richard Bintanja (KNMI, Univ. Groningen) demonstrate that the...
