Dr. Manuela Vecchi
Kapteyn Astronomical Institute
has been awarded an ENW-KLEIN-1 grant from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) worth EUR 300,000. The grant is for her project ‘
Cosmic ray antideuterons as a probe for new physics’.
Vecchi focusses on l ight anti-atomic nuclei from space. So far, light anti-atomic nuclei, such as anti-deuterium, have never been detected in cosmic radiation. The detection of these antiparticles is, however, within the reach of the AMS-02 experiment (2011-2024) which involves the collection of data on board the International Space Station. The measurement of flux from anti-atomic nuclei is a particularly promising method for studying antimatter and dark matter accurately.
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, fifteen applications have been awarded by the board of the NWO. More information about this round is available on the
The grant of EUR 750,000 is for his project ‘The role of heterogeneity in controlling the geomechanical behaviour of sandstone reservoirs’.
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’.
