Since July 2011, I am developing my own research line in the direction of artificial photosynthesis with “Towards Bisolar Cells” Grant (983.000 €) Grant idea about artificial photosynthesis is invented, developed by myself. I have initiated a network for the grant (Prof. Gardeniers from University of Twente, Prof. Joost Reek and Prof. Brouwer from University of Amsterdam). I wrote the Twente University part of the grant. 1/3 of the money will be received by the University of Twente.
