FriPro Grant to PI Kathrin

The CHOCO group was selected to receive a FriPro Individual Research Grant in the 2019 call of the Research Council of Norway. The project has the title “CATCH ME IF YOU CAN: Selective CO2 conversion via chiral CO2 trapping” and is set to be funded with 12 Million NOK. CHOCO PI Kathrin is project leader on the project and PI Annette is part of the project team.

Annual out-of-town meeting

Annual out-of-town meeting

The CHOCO group is annually going out of town for a two day group meeting with focus on team building and career development. This year we went fishing, followed by a session on grant writing. Indeed, both were challenging! We caught only 1 fish, which was shared at our international dinner, where each group member brought a dish. The group members then learned about funding schemes, reviewer comments and had to judge 5 real grant applications. The excellent comments showed that these students will make great grant writers!

Welcome Ainara!

Welcome Ainara

The CHOCO team welcomes Dr. Ainara Nova (UiO) as an Assoc. Prof-II (20% position) in the CHOCO group. Ainara will work together with us on computational catalysis and give courses, for example about microkinetic modelling. She will also increase the number of female PIs in computational chemistry at the department by 100%. 🙂
