Dr. ir. Jan van Dijk (TU/e, CCER) has received a grant with a value of 212.500 Euro for his proposal in a recent project call by the Netherlands eScience Center, entitled: “Passing XSAMS”.

This grant results in a close collaboration between Dr. van Dijk and the eScience Center, the Dutch national center of excellence for the development and application of research software.

The start of the collaboration was celebrated during an inspiring brainstorming event on February 12th at the Netherlands eScience Center in Amsterdam. During this day, several new collaborators of the eScience Center pitched their projects. Subsequently, the challenges and opportunities of the new collaborations were discussed in smaller groups together with eScience Research Engineers from the eScience Center.

The aim of the collaboration is to study non-equilibrium plasma sources as devices for the transformation of carbon dioxide into methane and other value-added chemicals, by means of research software for numerical simulations that has a broader applicability and value for academic researchers – possibly in different disciplines.

About CCER

The Center for Computational Energy Research  aims to explore pathways to future energy systems. This is done via computational simulations that complement experimental energy research. The center was founded in 2017 as the result of a joint initiative between the Department of Applied Physics of the Eindhoven University of Technology and NWO Institute DIFFER.
