last modified Nov 21, 2016 12:06 PM

Prof. Roberto Maiolino has been awarded an Advanced Grant from the European Research Council (ERC), one of the most competitive categories of grants in Europe.

The grant, entitled ‘QUENCH’, is aimed at investigating the mechanisms responsible for quenching star formation in galaxies and transforming them from star forming systems to passive, quiescent systems, which is one of the key questions of modern astrophysics.

Such research will be pursued by exploiting various multi wavelength observing facilities.

The grant is awarded under the 'excellent science' pillar of Horizon 2020, the EU's research and innovation programme.

See the ERC press release for further information.
