Three joint SCI/CHEM Thematic Research Programmes launched
Each programme to receive funding over three years.
The Aalto Science Institute (AScI) coordinated in Summer 2017 a call for joint SCI/CHEM thematic research programmes, with a goal to enhance research collaboration between the two Schools and support the long-term renewal of their research agendas. A total of 12 proposals were received, and in November the following programmes were selected for funding by the SCI and CHEM Deans:
- 3D User Interfaces in Materials Modelling Research and Education (3DMM, coord. Perttu Hämäläinen & Jaakko Lehtinen / SCI, Antti Karttunen / CHEM)
- Future structural materials for extreme conditions: High-Entropy Alloys (TRP-HEA, coord. Filip Tuomisto / SCI, Mari Lundström / CHEM)
- Nanochromic (coord. Matti Kaivola / SCI, Mady Elbahri / CHEM)
Each funding is for the period of 01 Jan 2018 – 31 Dec 2020. The programmes will be reporting to the AScI Steering Group, and AScI will be assisting in their practical coordination. The programmes will be organising a joint kickoff event on Monday 04 Dec 2017, 2:00–3:00 p.m., Top Lounge U523 at Otakaari 1; RSVP by 24 Nov 2017 to email@example.com for catering purposes.
