Professor Mehmet BAYINDIR, the deputy director of UNAM and faculty member of Physics Department, has been awarded ERC Starting (Consolidator section) Grant which was created to encourage “pioneering frontier research in any field of science, engineering and scholarship.” The ERC grant of € 1.5 million is for five years. Dr. Bayindir’s proposal focuses on the development of a novel fabrication technique (top-to-bottom iterative size reduction) in nanotechnology.

ERC Consolidator Grant funding will help mid-career researchers consolidate their own teams and carry out innovative projects across all scientific disciplines.
