RUHR EXPLORES SOLVATION SCIENCE

RUHR EXPLORES SOLVATION SCIENCE

We shape a new scientific discipline, inspire the scientists of tomorrow, and enable future technologies

WHAT is RESOLV?

The Cluster of Excellence RESOLV is an interdisciplinary research project of the Ruhr University Bochum and the TU Dortmund University, as well as four other institutions in the German Ruhr area. Since 2012, about 200 scientists cooperate to clarify how the solvent is involved in the control, mediation and regulation of chemical reactions. Our research is essential to advance technologies that could reuse CO2 for chemicals production, increase the efficiency of energy conversion and storage and develop smart sensors. RESOLV is funded by the German Federal Government and the state of North Rhine-Westphalia with 42 Mio. EUR over the period 2019-2025.

EU funds RESOLV's postdoctoral programme

RESOLV joined forces with the Swiss network NCCR-MUST to secure around 3.5 million euros funding.

A new fellowship programme for postdoctoral researchers is a collaboration between two interdisciplinary research networks: the Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research “Molecular Ultrafast Science and Technology” (NCCR-MUST) and the Bochum-Dortmund Cluster of Excellence “Ruhr Explores Solvation” (RESOLV). The transnational collaboration comprises 50 research groups from the fields of chemistry, physics, materials science, engineering and biology. The European Union supports the fellowship programme with 3.54 million euros under the Horizon 2020 program as a Marie-Sklodowska-Curie Cofund Action.

The programme, which starts in April 2019 and runs until September 2023, is called “Resolving Solvation with Molecular Ultrafast Science and Technology”, FP-RESOMUS in short. Its aim is to answer interdisciplinary questions at the interface of research on solvents and ultrafast processes using both simulation methods and the latest experimental technologies. The members of the programme benefit from the complementary expertise in the respective networks.

Programme in Germany and Switzerland

FP-RESOMUS supports 50 postdoctoral researchers in several locations in Germany and Switzerland. They investigate on a microscopic level how solvents influence various phenomena in nature and technology, and how ultrafast processes take place and can be improved.

The fellowship programme addresses early career researchers who are currently working outside of Germany and Switzerland, or who have recently started working there. FP-RESOMUS gives them the opportunity to gain experience in different locations. They benefit from extensive training opportunities, especially in scientific methods, but also in soft skills like application methodology, project management, languages and writing courses.

About the Cofund programme

With the Marie-Sklodowska-Curie Cofund Actions the European Commission supports both existing and new training and career-development programmes for early career and experienced researchers. This helps the researchers to find their way to scientific independence. Regional, as well as national and international fellowship programmes for postdocs or doctoral researchers are co-funded by this programme.

EU fördert neues interdisziplinäres Postdoktorandenprogramm

RESOLV hat sich mit dem Schweizer Netzwerk NCCR-MUST zusammengeschlossen, um rund 3,5 Millionen Euro Fördermittel zu erhalten.

Ein neues Fellowship-Programm für Postdoktorandinnen und -doktoranden haben der Zürcher Forschungsschwerpunkt „Molecular Ultrafast Science and Technology“ (NFS-MUST) und das Bochum-Dortmunder Exzellenzcluster „Ruhr Explores Solvation“ (RESOLV) ins Leben gerufen. Die Europäische Union fördert es mit 3,54 Millionen Euro im Rahmen des Horizon-2020-Programms als Marie Sklodowska-Curie Cofund Action.

Video: The solvent of life

Water. It’s the most abundant substance on Earth´s surface and in our bodies. But is water a passive spectator in the animated scene of bio-chemical reactions inside our cells? RESOLV scientists investigate the important role that water plays in the most diverse processes, bringing solvation science into the spotlight.

igss summer school

The integrated Graduate School Solvation Science hosts an annual Summer School at the Ruhr University Bochum. The school always takes place during Whitsuntide and is an integral part of the GSS students' training during their doctoral studies. This year's iGSS Summer School took place from the 11th to the 14th of June, 2019.

International speakers, suggested by the students themselves, are invited to give keynote talks on their research in the field of Solvation Science. The Advanced Laboratory Modules give the students an excellent opportunity to learn new and interesting experimental and theoretical techniques within a specific research topic of their own choice.
