Ulf-G. Meißner Awarded an ERC Advanced Grant
Jülich, 22 April 2021 – What happens when strange quarks are inserted into atomic nuclei? What “habitable” universes are theoretically possible? Prof. Ulf-G. Meißner from the Institute for Advanced Simulation – Theory of the Strong Interactions (IAS-4) aims to find the answers to these and other questions through research. Prof. Meißner, who also conducts research at the Helmholtz Institute for Radiation and Nuclear Physics (HISKP) at the University of Bonn, has received a coveted Advanced Grant from the European Research Council (ERC) to carry out the project. The project will be provided with roughly € 2.3 million in funding.
