The NWO has awarded dr. Marcos Guimarães of the Zernike Insitute for Advanced Materials (Faculty of Science and Engineering) a START-UP Grant for his project 'Controlling spins through symmetry in two dimensions'. The researchers will engineer and manipulate the symmetries of two-dimensional materials to control their magnetic and spintronic properties. These properties will then be measured using a combination of electrical and optical techniques.
The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has awarded nearly three million euros to seven recently appointed researchers in physics and chemistry through the START-UP programme. Other researchers who were awarded a grant are from the Delft University of Technology, Eindhoven University of Technology, University of Twente, Radboud University Nijmegen and Utrecht University.
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.
Last week, Ben Feringa and Anouk Lubbe presented the first copy of their book Alledaagse Moleculen (Everyday Molecules) to minister Robbert Dijkgraaf. The richly illustrated book offers an accessible overview of 180 substances in our daily lives....
