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.
