SEK 10 million for physics researchers

Igor Abrikosov, professor of Theoretical Physics at LiU, is one of eight researchers to receive a grant as part of the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research “Successful Research Leaders” programme. This equates to SEK 10 million over the next five years.

His project “Quantum theory for atomistic materials design” aims at developing new simulation tools that can be used to develop new materials with strategic potential.

The project covers both skills development and skills transference. It deals with such things as predicting new materials and phenomena, and creating user-friendly software for simulation and visualisation.

The programme, run by Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research, is a continuance of “Future Research Leaders”. The idea is to give groups of researchers the opportunity to develop further, thus promoting innovative research at Swedish institutions of higher education. The grant recipients will be given SEK 10 million each over a five-year period starting in January 2012:
