We are happy to announce that the Selection Panel has chosen Prof. Dr Andrzej Szytula as the best candidate for the ERA Chair holder position. As an outstanding and internationally recognized scientist in the field of magnetism, he was selected to be the Scientific Coordinator of the MagBioVin project with the main goal to help the MagBioVin team to accomplish excellence and capacity to compete with EU teams for European grants on an equal footing. He will supervise and coordinate the following project activities:
The “Kick-off” and the first Steering committee meeting is scheduled for April 27th/28th in Vinca Institute, Belgrade. The Steering committee (SC) consists of eminent scientists from EU, selected on the basis of their scientific reputation and earlier collaboration with the members of the project team. The members of Steering Committee are head representatives of peer scientific institutions: Dr. Gerardo Goya (Nanoscience Institute of Aragon, Spain), Prof. Lotfi Bessais (ICMPE-CMTR, CNRS), Prof. Z. Jaglicic (Institute of Mathemiatics, Physics and Mechanics, Slovenia), Dr. Emil Bozin (Brookhaven National Laboratory), Dr Marian Mihalik (Institute of Experimental Physics, Slovakia). They will have advisory role in: a) reinforcement of human resources, b) establishing the new international connections, c) knowledge and technology transfer. The large experience of our strategic partners role is particularly important in the beginning of project realization, in order to help the integration of MagBioVin team in European Research Area.
Eleven universities and technical institutes in less developed regions in Europe are to receive up to €2.4 million each in EU funding to boost their research capacity though the appointment of the first ever “ERA Chairs”, Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, European Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science, announced on Monday. The initiative aims to bridge Europe’s innovation divide by attracting top academics to organisations so that they can compete with centres of excellence elsewhere in the European Research Area (ERA).
