ERC Starting Grant for Prof. Dr. Annette Andrieu-Brunsen: 3D-FNP Writing
Prof Dr. Annette Andrieu-Brunsen, chemical scientist at the TU Darmstadt, asked me to support her in designing her presentation for the application to the ERC Starting Grant 2018. Together with her I designed and redesigned numerous infographics in 3d and 2d and also designed the entire layout of the presentation.
The project »3D-FNP Writing« aims to create smart membranes being nanoporous and thereby being able to filter metallic nanoparticles and their salts. For example, these particles can be found in antimicrobial coated clothes. By washing them these particles are accumulating more and more in the environment.
For developing these smart nanopores, the research group combines two technologies: 3d-printing of nanoporous membranes as well as high resolution microscope technologies. By that it is possible to create technical nanopores being as highly selective as their natural equivalents (e.g. ion channels in neurons).
1.5 Mio Euros in funding
The presentation convinced the ERC jury in Brussels! Annette Andrieu-Brunsen gets 1.5 Mio Euros in funding for her research project. Thereby, together with her constantly growing team, she can push forward the development of smart membranes during the next years.
