The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions are an initiative within the EU Horizon 2020 programme designed to increase mobility among researchers. Feng Gao, senior lecturer in the Division of Biomolecular and Organic Electronics has received funding for two fellowships, enabling him to appoint postdocs in two projects. The first investigates efficient organic solar cells, the second stable blue light-emitting diodes in perovskites. Each grant is worth just over EUR 200,000 for 2 years.

Daniel Aili, associate professor in the Division of Molecular Physics, has received funding for one postdoc fellowship. He received just under EUR 200,000 for 2 years, to be used in a project to develop a new type of biosensor for biological pharmaceuticals, based on nanoparticles.

Researchers overestimate their own honesty

The average researcher thinks they are better than their colleagues at following good research practice. They also think that their own research field is better than other fields. This is shown in a new study at Linköping University.

Physical fitness in adolescence linked to less atherosclerosis later

Men who were physically fit when they were young had a lower risk of atherosclerosis almost 40 years later. These findings suggest that atherosclerosis is one of the mechanisms behind the link between physical fitness and cardiovascular disease.
