Svetlana Mintova has been awarded the ERC Advanced Grant 2021 for her project ZEOLIght: “Dual Challenges in the discovery and sustainability of nanozeolites: controlling defect sites and structural flexibility”. This project is funded with 2.5 million euros over 5 years.
It is the first time that a researcher wins this grant in Normandy.
The ERC Advanced Grants reward researchers in all fields, at the stage of their career where they are already research leaders, with a recognized track record.
The ZEOLIghT project aims at mastering defects and flexibility of nanozeolites by understanding the fundamental mechanisms involved in their growth kinetics. Indeed, defects are the key to transform inert materials into active ones. Understanding these defects will open the way to the discovery of a wide variety of new nanozeolites with original properties not yet known. The new zeolites thus synthesized will contribute to the fight against climate change by providing solutions to the energy transition and the reduction of CO2 emissions.
