, will receive EUR 1.5 million for his research project ‘Darwinian evolution of molecules’ in the coming five years. He has been awarded a Vici grant as part of NWO’s Innovational Research Incentives Scheme (‘Vernieuwingsimpuls’). This year there were over 200 applicants for a Vici grant, 128 of whom were invited to further elaborate their proposal. A total of 32 academics, of which 3 at the University of Groningen, have eventually been awarded Vici grants. The Vici grants are intended for ‘excellent, experienced researchers who have successfully developed a new research line and thus established themselves prominently at both national and international levels’, says NWO, the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research.
The IEEE award is handed out to the writers of the best paper of the past two years in the field of Control Systems Technology.
The grant is for her project ‘ Cosmic ray antideuterons as a probe for new physics’.
