Virus particles Large biomolecules in a small space spontaneously form symmetrical patterns. Researchers from FOM institute AMOLF discovered this together with colleagues from Oxford and Jülich when they confined rod-shaped virus particles in doughnut-shaped micro-chambers. What started as a chance discovery has opened up a whole new area in the physics of ultrasmall liquid crystal cells with potential applications in new displays. The results of the research will be published on 29 June 2016 in Nature Communications. Read more
Logo NWO On 1 January 2017, NWO will adopt a new organisation structure. Current funding instruments will remain unchanged until a decision about any change is taken. NWO and FOM will announce this change at least six months in advance. 2017 will be a transition year and the new funding instruments will become effective no later than 1 January 2018. Read more
Logo NWO With effect from 1 October 2016 Herry Nijhuis (1959) will be the director of Technology Foundation STW. He succeeds Cor de Boer, who has temporarily held this position since the departure of Eppo Bruins at the end of last year. On 1 January 2017 the activities of Technology Foundation STW will be transferred to the Applied Engineering Sciences domain of the new NWO. Nijhuis will then become the director of this domain.
