Angel Rubio receieves European Research Council's Advanced Grant

"Professor of Materials Physics and Director of the NanoBio Spectroscopy Team at the UPV/EHU, Ángel Rubio, has received one of the prestigious Advanced ERC grants for senior researchers awarded by the European Research Council. The project selected seeks the development of new materials which will have energy applications, using nanostructures and biomolecule. “It is a totally basic research project with highly ambitious objectives”, explained Ángel Rubio. In fact, the final goal is to draw up a theoretical framework that would explain the physical phenomena linked to the processes of capturing, storing and transmitting energy in real systems. The project will receive 1.9 million euros and will be undertaken between 2011 and 2015."

Congratulations to the professor! this is indeed great news.

We already talked about the huge needs of the nano-bio group based in San Sebastian, Basque Country. They are a major prestigious simulation group in the Basque Country.
