Two European Research Council funding grants secured

Congratulations to Dr Rebecca Milot and Dr Matt Kenzie who have both secured European Research Council Starting Grants, following the first call for proposals under the EU's new R&I programme, Horizon Europe.

Dr Rebecca Milot has been awarded €2,473,363 to investigate one of the most promising new materials for solar energy conversion, metal halide perovskites.

Dr Matt Kenzie's award of €1,490,202 will aim to enhance our understanding of the physics underpinning the matter-antimatter asymmetry of the universe, which is fundamental in explaining how our universe arrived at its present state.

UK’s first 1GHz solid-state NMR spectrometer

Part of a new £20 million investment by EPSRC in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) equipment across UK institutions, the £8M, 1GHz NMR instrument at Warwick will provide new structural and dynamic information in chemistry, materials science and biology. It will add to our already significant NMR capabilities that include the 850MHz high-field solid-state NMR National Research Facility, which has been serving a broad academic and industrial user-base since 2010.

Researchfish submission deadline

FINAL REMINDER: we all, staff and RCUK-funded PhD students (normally in their third year of study), have until Thursday, March 16th, 2017 (inclusive) to complete our “researchfish” submissions. Please make sure that you have indeed “submitted”. Your reward should be an email similar to the one I received below. So, if in doubt whether you have indeed been successful in finding the “submit” button on researchfish, you can also search for “successfully submitted the award” among your received emails (please make sure you search the 2017 one, not last years).
