Northwestern Receives European Research Council Synergy Grant in Quantum Science

October 31, 2022

Northwestern University is among twenty-nine groups backed by European Research Council (ERC) Synergy Grants to tackle complex research questions. Recipients were announced Tuesday, October 25, 2022.

A six-year grant for nine-million euro was awarded to a team of four Principal Investigators including Michael R. Wasielewski; Clare Hamilton Hall Professor of Chemistry; Executive Director, Institute for Sustainability and Energy at Northwestern (ISEN); and Director, Center for Molecular Quantum Transduction (CMQT) – a US-DOE Energy Frontier Research Center. Their funded proposal is “Chirality and spin selectivity in electron transfer processes: from quantum detection to quantum enabled technologies,” with an acronym of CASTLE. Additional PIs represent the University of Florence, Free University of Berlin, and University of Parma.
