RWTH Professor Sandra Korte-Kerzel Awarded With Starting Grant

The European Research Council supports researchers with funding in the form of Starting Grants.

These are considered one of the most prestigious funding instruments in Europe, since they allow research projects to be financed with up to 1.5 million euros. Applicants must demonstrate that they have already produced outstanding supervised work. Now the application "Fundamental Building Blocks - Understanding plasticity in complex crystals based on their simplest, intergrown units" by RWTH professor Sandra Korte-Kerzel has been approved. She has held the Chair of Materials Physics since 2013 and is head of the Institute for Physical Metallurgy and Materials Physics. Korte-Kerzel studied physics and mechanical engineering at RWTH Aachen University and received her doctorate from the University of Cambridge. From 2011 to 2013 she was Junior Professor of Micromechanics of Materials at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.
