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 Lodewijk Woltjer Lecture Award is awarded to academics who have made exceptional contributions to their field.
The grant is for his project ‘Quenching the thirst for privacy: a system-theoretic approach’.
Eleven international awardees have been selected based on excellence in research, distinguished accomplishments in education, and demonstrated leadership in the chemical sciences.
