Raquel Viveiros, researcher at the LAQV-REQUIMTE network, which Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia (FCT NOVA) integrates, was rewarded with a grant from the program YERUN Research Mobility Awards.
With this grant the researcher will join The National Centre for Sensor Research from Dublin City University, in Ireland, where she will continue her research with Molecular Imprinted Polymers (MIPs), recurring to environmental friendly technologies, having in mind different applications in the environmental area and the pharmaceutical industry.
Regarding the importance of this scholarship, the researcher referred that “working on a research project with faculty from other universities from the YERUN network promotes a multidisciplinary research transversal to all universities in this network, enhancing the research opportunities and the researchers’ training at an early stage of their careers”.
The YERUN Research Mobility Awards are granted to researchers and faculty from universities of the YERUN network (Young European Research Universities Network) and aim to support research work in a different country from the one where the researchers are based. These grants were given for the first time, distinguishing 26 research works from a total of 142 applications.
