JARA-Professor Paolo Carloni was honored with the Hans and Marlies Zimmer International Scholar Award at a symposium in Cincinnati, USA, in April 2022. Carloni received the award for his contributions in computational chemistry and biophysics.
Two JARA scientists can celebrate the award of an ERC Advanced Grant. The research work of Prof. Martin Grohe (JARA-CSD) and Prof. Heinz Pitsch (JARA-CSD and JARA-ENERGY) will be funded by the European Research Council - ERC for short - with the grants. Both professors will now be funded by the ERC for five years each with about 2.5 million for their research and the necessary equipment.
Professor Matthias Wessling, a member of the JARA ENERGY and SOFT sections, has been admitted to the Leopoldina National Academy of Sciences. Wessling - holder of the Chair of Chemical Engineering, Prorector for Research and Structure at RWTH and member of the Scientific Directorate of the DWI Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials - is now the 13th RWTH member of the Leopoldina, founded in 1652.
The workshop on "Socially Responsible Research" on May 12/13, 2022 is part of the LeNa Shape research project and is aimed at interested students, PhD students and post-docs. LeNa Shape conducts research on the concept of excellence within the scientific community as well as on the motivation that encourages researchers to reflect upon their projects in a socially responsible way. The workshop focuses on the latter.
JARA partner RWTH Aachen University was able to achieve top rankings in the fields of mechanical engineering, materials science, and mineral and mining engineering in the current QS Ranking by Subjects. The University of Aachen also ranks among the top three German universities in architecture, civil engineering, chemistry, chemical engineering, computer science and electrical engineering.
