Dr Alexander Streltsov from the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Informatics to head a project financed by the FIRST TEAM programme
The Foundation for Polish Science has announced the winners of the fifth competition as part of the FIRST TEAM programme. The Foundation has awarded thirteen young researchers with grants to the value of over 26 million PLN to create their first research teams.
Through the FIRST TEAM programme the Foundation provides support to young PhDs in establishing scientific independence by awarding them around 2 million PLN each to implement team projects and undertake the most interesting scientific challenges. The grants are financed from the Smart Growth Operational Programme funds.
The fifth competition in the FIRST TEAM programme received 131 applications, of which reviewers and experts recommended thirteen for funding to an amount in excess of 26 million PLN. The funds received from the Foundation for Polish Science will allow the selected leaders to create their own research teams and to finance at least 29 workplaces for researchers employed in the projects as well as 35 scholarships for doctoral and undergraduate students involved in the implementation of research work. 28 foreign and 12 domestic research partners have been invited to cooperate on the research.
Among the winners is Dr Alexander Streltsov from the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Informatics, whose project entitled “Quantum Coherence and Entanglement for Quantum Technology” will receive funding to the amount of 2,008,260 PLN.
