ERC Proof of Concept Grant for Tim Langen
Congratulations to IQST Early Career Researcher Tim Langen from the University of Stuttgart, who has been awarded a prestigious Proof of Concept (PoC) grant by the European Research Council (ERC) for his research project MiniAtomQ.
For Langen, the PoC grant will enable the exploration of miniaturized devices for single-atom quantum technologies. The scientific and technological basis for this work is laid in Langen’s ERC Starting project NEWMAT, in which he and his team work establish a new experimental platform to study the properties of supersolids.
Langen is one 90 grantees of the final ERC PoC funding round of 2022. Only holders of ERC main grants (Starting, Consolidator, Advanced or Synergy) are eligible to compete for PoC grants, which provide a lump sum of 150.000 Euro to help researchers to bridge the gap between the discoveries stemming from their frontier research and the practical application of the findings.More information
