FOM awards 3.3 million euros to innovative Projectruimte research projects
The Executive Board of the FOM Foundation decided to award nine proposals in the FOM-Projectruimte. In this funding decision is accounted for the FOM preferential treatment for new permanent academic staff and tenure-trackers and for gender diversity within the physics community. The Projectruimte makes it possible to realise small-scale projects of fundamental research with an innovative character and a demonstrable scientific, industrial or societal urgency.

Project proposals awarded
The following research proposals have been awarded funding.
 
  • Single-particle emitters for superconducting nanostructures 
    Prof.dr. Carlo Beenakker (LEI)
  • Indirect-to-direct bandgap conversion in surface engineered Si and Ge nanostructures 
    Dr. Katerina Dohnalová (UvA)
  • Responsive materials through reversible crosslinking 
    Dr. Wouter Ellenbroek (TU/e)
  • Strongly-correlated bosonic and fermionic ultracold atomic gases with long-range interactions: a new theoretical approach
    Dr. Paola Gori-Giorgi (VU)
  • Tuning into the photosynthetic membrane with atomistic precision 
    Dr. Anjali Pandit (LEI)
  • Solving the direct photon puzzle in heavy-ion reactions with direct photon interferometry Prof.dr. Thomas Peitzmann (UU/Nikhef)
  • Investigating cellular aging by quantum sensing
    Dr. Romana Schirhagl (RUG)
  • Top Spin 
    Dr. Marcel Vreeswijk (UvA/Nikhef) and Prof.Dr. Eric Laenen (UvA/Nikhef)
  • Toward bottom-up construction of an 'Aggregate-OLED' 
    Dr. Daniel Wegner (RU)

Projectruimte
The Projectruimte is one of the grant instruments that FOM has to fund physics research. Researchers can submit proposals for the FOM-Projectruimte on a continuous basis. FOM considers the proposals in batches of 15 to 25 in the order they are received. In 2015, FOM had a budget of about 10 million euros for the Projectruimte, of which 3 million euros has been made available within the framework of the Sector Plan Physics and Chemistry.
