NWO Vidi grant for Ilja Voets

Ilja Voets has received a Vidi grant of NWO (Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research), with a value of 800,000 euros. In the research project, Ilja Voets plans to make light sensitive molecular switches and incorporate them into colloidal materials aiming to control the mechanical and optical properties of composite supramolecular materials by light.

Ilja Voets, who works at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry and ICMS, received in the recent past an ERC Starting Grant (worth 1,7 million euros) and NWO Rubicon and Veni grants for her research on self-organizing soft materials.
