FinnCERES steering group decided to fund two Novel Openings for 2019-2020, announced at the Sparkling with FinnCERES event on September 20th, 2019:
1. Simulation-assisted scattering analysis of moisture-induced swelling in wood microfibril bundles (SASAMIS)
2. Lignocellulosic Architectures in Electrochemistry: Towards FAST and Selective Response (LA-FAST).
Novel Openings aim to lay the foundations for future biomaterials solutions and concepts. The selected projects are expected to stimulate the vitality and growth of FinnCERES beyond the currently known horizons.
The project leaders were interviewed after receiving the funding:
SASAMIS, project leaders: Paavo Penttilä, Aalto and Antti Paajanen, VTT
