Double strike Jorge Gascon
Jorge Gascon from TU Delft has been awarded two prestigious grants to realize his research ideas on two different topics. The Dutch science foundation NWO awarded a VIDI grant for developing low temperature methane oxidation to methanol, while the ERC starting grant was awarded by European Research Counsel to develop mixed matrix membranes based on metal organic frameworks. Both organizations evaluated the proposals as excellent, challenging and a high risk-high reward character. This will provide Jorge with the means to further develop his scientific ambitions.
