In a bid to influence further research into nanoelectrochemistry, Horizon 2020 have funded project SENTINEL which offers a four year Innovative Training Network for students in this field.
The Single-entity Nanoelectrochemistry (SENTINEL) project is a four year Innovative Training Network designed to bring together researchers and organisations from different countries to train the next generation of scientists in the field of single entity electrochemistry.
The SENTINEL project consists of 20 organisations spanning across 13 countries. From these organisations 11 supervisors will be supporting the work of PhD students (Early Stage Researchers, ESRs).
Since the project began in 2018, the main goal of the SENTINEL project is to train scientist to tackle challenges like climate change and diseases using nanoelectrochemistry. The European Union have funding the SENTINEL project under their Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement n° 812398.
Who is working on the SENTINEL project?
Working with project manager Sarah King, a team of researchers and professors will be supervising those who are working under this Innovative Training Network. These supervisors include:
- Dr Paolo Actis, University of Leeds in the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering
- Professor Wolfgang Schuhmann, Ruhr-Universität Bochum
- Professor Kristina Tschulik, Ruhr-University Bochum
- Dr Renaud Cornut, Atomic Energy and Alternative Energies Commission, Institut rayonnement matière de Saclay (IRAMIS)
- Dr Ferry Kienberger, Keysight Technologies
- Dr Frederic Kanoufi, Paris Diderot University
- Professor Mingdong Dong, Aarhus University, Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Centre iNANO
- Professor Patrick Unwin, University of Warwick
- Dr Federico Thei, University of Bologna
- Professor Serge Lemay, University of Twente
- Professor Tomaso Zambelli, ETH Zürich
According to the SENTINEL project: “Europe needs to train a large number of highly qualified researchers in the latest advances in Nanotechnology able to face the issues that are currently challenging nanotechnology based industries and research centres.
“The research and training programme of the SENTINEL Network will empower the next generation of researchers in nanoelectrochemistry with a truly global scientific and technical training and perspective.”
