Three new research grants from Horizon 2020 to LiU

Scientists Feng Gao and Daniel Aili, both at the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology, have been awarded research grants from the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions. The amount involved is approximately EUR 600,000 for 2 years.

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.
