ERC Supports Nordita Quantum Materials Research

Nordita Professor Alexander Balatsky is a leader in the fast growing field of Quantum Materials research. Together with three collaborators in Switzerland he was awarded an ERC Synergy Grant for the project "Hidden, Entangled and Resonating Orders" (HERO), which officially starts on 1 May 2019.

The grant is for EUR 13.9 million for six years, of which Prof. Balatsky receives EUR 2.5 million. This is the first time this prestigious European grant is awarded to a project with Swedish participants.
