Marta López Daris is an ecologist from Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain and a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellow at the Instituto de Productos Naturales y Agrobiología (CSIC) where she is concluding a postdoctoral position. She has already undertaken research on rethinking Darwin's Theory of Evolution in the contemporary context. Her scientific approach is to study hunting as a force driving evolution. She spent two years in the US and one year in Spain comparing the evolution of predator and prey between the Bahamas and the Canary Islands. As a scientist, the Individual Fellow Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions grant is helping her to improve her scientific skills and initiate strong collaborations with scientists in other parts of the world.
Katarzyna Kalita is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow with research focused on the identification of genes involved in epilepsy. The MSCA allows her to cover research costs, have an employment contract and work close to her family and friends. In addition to offering generous fellowships, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions give researchers the possibility to gain experience abroad and in the private sector, and to complete their training with competences or disciplines useful for their careers.
The goal of the Human Brain Project is to build a completely new information computing technology infrastructure for neuroscience and for brain-related research in medicine and computing, catalysing a global collaborative effort to understand the human brain and its diseases and ultimately to emulate its computational capabilities.
Chalmers University of Technology SE) has been honored to coordinate one of the EU's biggest ever EU science project – Graphene Flagship – and time has come to take the super-material out from the research labs and into everyone's lives.
In this video Jie Sun, Assistant Professor at the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience, shows how he manufactures scalable and high-performing solid Graphene samples – the raw material for the over 100 research groups within the Graphene Flagship.
