Veni grant for Lorenzo Albertazzi

Five talented young researchers from TU/e (Eindhoven University of Technology) will receive Veni grants worth up to 250,000 euros this year. This was announced by the NWO (Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research). Lorenzo Albertazzi of BMT and ICMS is one of the awardees. His proposal is aiming at the design of smart materials to realize nano-robots functioning inside a human body.

NWO awards Veni grants each year to promising young researchers who gained their PhDs no more than three years ago. They are free to use the cash awards - each worth up to 250,000 euros - on research subjects of their own choice. This year NWO is awarding Veni grants for a total of 38 million euros to 152 researchers.
