MSCA-ITN Grant to NordCO2 researchers

A collaboration between Nordic CO2 researchers in NordCO2 and other leading experts in Europe has been granted by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) in Horizon 2020. The collaboration, an Innovative Training Network (ITN), will train future scientists in the art of using carbon dioxide for synthesizing essential molecules in a sustainable manner.

Congratulations to Kathrin H. Hopmann (UiT, coordinator of the new ITN), Ainara Nova (UiO), Belén Martín-Matute (SU), Troels Skrydstrup (AU), Annette Bayer (UiT) and Kim Daasbjerg (AU).

The new network, aptly named CO2PERATE, will have three industrial partners: Evonik, AstraZeneca and Haldor Topsøe, and will collaborate with outstanding European research groups in the field: Ruben Martin (ICIQ), Cristina Nevado (UZH), and Matthias Beller (LIKAT)

15 new PhD positions will be announced in the research groups soon, stay in touch!
