Obtaining Grant from ERC (Consolidator Grant 2016)

European Research Council    Alfonso Saiz-Lopez, Research Scientist at CSIC and Head of the Department of Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate in this Institute, has obtained an ERC Consolidator Grant 2016 funded with 2 M euros by the European Research Council for the 5-year project “Climate dimension of natural halogens in the Earth system: Past, present, future (CLIMAHAL)”.

    Through an extremely competitive selection process, the ERC Consolidator Grants will fund about 310 projects (24 in Spain) out of 2300 applications. The CLIMAHAL project will use a multidisciplinary approach including spectroscopic and kinetic methods, and theoretical modelling to determine for the first time how natural halogen molecules affect the climate of our planet in past, present and future scenarios.

    The ERC Consolidator Grants open every year to support research of consolidated and exceptional scientists of any nationality and age. The ERC selects pioneering and high risk projects with ground-breaking ideas within their fields of research.
