Finansiering via Advanced Grant från ERC

Finansiering från Europeiska forskningsrådet (ERC) beviljas framstående forskare för banbrytande arbete inom vetenskapen. Framstående forskning är det enda kriteriet på basis av vilket ERC beviljar spetsforskningsstipendier. ERC Advanced Grant är riktad till till redan etablerade forskare av världsklass med betydande forskningsinsatser under de senaste 10 åren.
Professori Kari Astala

Kari Astala

Project: Developing new mathematical methods for currently unsolvable problems led (QUAMAP)
Duration: 2019–2024

Professor Astala describes his work as 'developing mathematics and tools for analysing different mathematical models, particularly those arising in statistical physics and materials sciences. Diverse phenomena in properties of materials, fluid mechanics, medical scanning and even invisibility cloaking will be susceptible to the methods of analysis developed in this project.'

Olli Ikkala

Olli Ikkala

Project: Field driven materials for functions, dissipation, and mimicking Pavlovian adaptation
Duration: 2017–2022

Olli Ikkala’s project is focused on new kinds of multifunctional materials.  Ikkala’s broader research framework is connected to biomimetics, which studies how and why nature constructs systems and materials that have unique properties.

Peter Liljeroth

Peter Liljeroth

Project: Artificial Designer Materials
Duration: 2018–2023

Professor Peter Liljeroth explores and fabricates new, artificial designer materials that do not exist in nature nor have yet been realised in the laboratory. The motivation for studying these materials are their electrical properties, and that they can be manipulated and tuned atom by atom with scanning tunneling microscopy or molecular self-assembly.

Jukka Pekola

Project: Superconducting quantum heat engines and refrigerators
Duration: 2017–2022

Jukka Pekola received a €2.4 million ERC Advanced Grant for developing quantum heat engines and refrigerators and for research on quantum thermodynamics. Professor Pekola has studied thermal fluctuations and energy transfer in superconducting nanostructures for the past two decades. In this research, Pekola and his team aim to construct quantum heat engines and refrigerators and try to find out whether their efficiency and cooling power can be improved in a controlled way with the help of quantum phenomena. At the same time, they will obtain information about thermodynamic phenomena in real-life quantum systems.

Prof. Orlando Rojas

Orlando Rojas

Project: Bioproducts Engineered from Lignocelluloses: from plants and upcycling to next generation materials
Duration: 2018–2023

Professor Orlando Rojas will builds the next generation supra-colloidal systems, capable of performing emergent functions by utilizing trans-disciplinary scientific approaches for deconstruction and re-assembly. Ultimately, his goal is to design and develop the materials of the future based on micro and nanoparticles from cellulose and lignin resourced from plants and lignocellulosic waste.

Grigory Volovik

Grigory Volovik

Project: From Topological Matter to Relativistic Quantum Vacuum
Duration: 2016–2021

In his research Volovik studies both theoretical and experimental efforts in the investigation of connections between the topological quantum matter and RQV. The research’s aim is to enhance understanding of topological condensed-matter systems especially in the ultra-low-temperature regime, and to apply this experience to solution of problems in SM & cosmology.
