Eleni Stavrinidou, senior lecturer and principal investigator at Electronic Plants at Linköping University’s Laboratory of Organic Electronics and WWSC member is awarded ERC Starting Grant of approximately EUR 1.5 million.
The Wallenberg Scholar program focuses on Sweden’s leading senior researchers and gives the researchers long.term funding to carry out world-class research. WWSC member Christian Müller, professor at Chalmers, is one of the 2022 Wallenberg Scholars.
The first physical WWSC workshop since the pandemic was held in November. One of the highlights was the session where the students presented their work. The jury had a tough time deciding the winners of best pitch- and poster presentation!
The continuation of WWSC receives 380 million SEK from Knut Alice Wallenberg’s Foundation. The increased funding leads to that the research program “New materials from trees for a sustainable future” is expanded to make possible a more sustainable future.
A research team at Linköping University, led by Eleni Stavrinidou, have made plants store energy in their root system. The results open up new possibilities for novel types of functional materials and biocomposites.
The Gunnar Sundblad Foundation’s research fund wants to promote the development, renewal and competitiveness of the fiber-based industry. Now the application for the foundation’s Competence award and Young Researcher’s award is open.
Research groups of Roland Kádár and Tiina Nypelö at WWSC at Chalmers have elucidate cellulose nanocrystal alignment in flow. The published research article is now featured on the covers of both the journal ACS Nano and Journal of Rheology.
Wallenberg Wood Science Center at Chalmers is recruiting two assistant professors. Deadline to apply is September 15.
Wallenberg Wood Science Center is a research center with a focus on new materials from trees. The mission is to create knowledge and build competence that can form the basis for an innovative future value creation from forest raw material.
The base is a donation from Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.
