In December, NWO CW granted a Technology Area (TA) to the project lead by Prof. Detlef Lohse (University of Twente). With Bert Weckhuysen as co-applicant, Utrecht University is involved in this project to unravel the mystery of solar steam nanobubbles.
With this project, a budget of over M€ 1, is available for their research to steam nanobubbles. Besides the universities of Twente and Utrecht, also TNO, Albemarle and BASF are closely involved in the programme. These companies finance 33% of the programme fund.
TA grants are specifically for alliances of two or more knowledge centres in cooperation with two or more companies, who finance 33% of the grant.
