UT scientists Christian Nijhuis, Floris Zwanenburg and Mark Huijben have received the Vici grant from the Dutch Research Council (NWO) this year. The grants, worth 1.5 million euros, were awarded to 34 researchers in total.
Christian Nijhuis, UT professor at Hybrid Materials for Opto-Electronics, developed a novel technology inspired by the human brain. Nijhuis and his team designed a system which is able to process and transfer information in a highly energy-efficient way. The technology might prove invaluable for use in self-driving cars and other applications.
