Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant for Robert Biele



The scientist Dr. Robert Biele has received the prestigious Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions research grant to explore thermoelectricity at the nanoscale together with Prof. Gianaurelio Cuniberti at the Chair of Materials Science and Nanotechnology. Dr Biele did his PhD in the Nano-Bio-Spectroscopy Group at the University of the Basque Country in Spain and his research focuses on different fields of theoretical physics, ranging from quantum transport over non- equilibrium thermodynamics to the first-principle modelling of the optical and electrical properties of novel 2D materials. In his project, QTherm-2D, he aims at exploring quantum thermoelectricity for realistic nanodevices beyond the state-of-the-art in order to advance current thermoelectric technologies. The young scientist is among 109 applicants across Germany who has been chosen for the research grant. The European Commission has received more than 9,000 applications from all over the world. Out of those, 1,348 project were selected for funding. Their topics cover a wide range of the natural sciences and the humanities. The EU Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, Tibor Navracsics, said: "We are today recognizing the potential of 1,348 excellent, internationally mobile researchers who faced intense international competition to be awarded with a fellowship. The projects they will work on will help tackle some of the biggest challenges our societies face."
