Calls for proposals: SONATA 13, SONATA BIS 7, MAESTRO 9 and HARMONIA 9

On 14th June, the National Science Centre announced its new calls: SONATA 13, SONATA BIS 7, MAESTRO 9 and HARMONIA 9.

SONATA is funding scheme, welcoming applications from holders of a doctorate degree awarded within 2 to 7 years of applying. The call’s objective is to support innovative research using state-of-the-art equipment and original methodologies.

SONATA BIS is a call announced to establish new research teams by researchers who have been awarded a doctorate within 5 to 12 years before the year of grant application.

MAESTRO is the most prestigious of NCN’s calls, seeking participation from advanced researchers willing to carry out ground-breaking projects, surpassing the current boundaries of knowledge.

HARMONIA is a call for research projects carried out as international collaboration, non-co-financed from international resources. Apart from projects carried out in direct collaboration with a partner from abroad, the funding may be also given to research conducted under international programmes for bi- or multilateral collaboration, and also to Polish research teams using large-scale international research infrastructure.

First experiment at HIL with metallic beam.

On the 29th of April, 2017 the first experiment at HIL with metallic beam was successfully completed.

The experiment HIL066 “Transfer cross sections at near-barrier energies for the 24Mg + 90,92Zr systems” was proposed by Agnieszka Trzcińska form HIL and Władysław Trzaska from the University of Jyväskylä, Finland.

The measurements were performed at ICARE scattering chamber. Identification of back scattered ions and reaction products were done employing the Time of Flight technique and energy loss vs energy (ΔE vs E) measurement of registered ions.

 The experiment was conducted in a collaboration with physicists from 6 countries: Finland, Italy, Germany, Romania, Russia and China with the Transnational Access (TNA) support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement n°654002 .
