Recerca

UB researchers Inés Domingo, from the Faculty of Geography and History, and Pietro Tierno from the Faculty of Physics, have been honoured with two Consolidator Grants from the European Research Council (ERC) within the frame of the 2018 call. The new edition of the ERC aids, which are part of the European Commission program Horizon 2020, will give a fund of 573 million euros to a series of 291 scientific projects –out of a total of 2,389 submitted proposals- from twenty-one European countries. 

This call was designed to support researchers who want to establish research groups and consolidate their professional career in Europe. The awardees have to have experience proving their scientific talent and to present a five-year excellence research project.

Discovering the Levantine rock art

Inés Domingo, ICREA research lecturer at the Department of History and Archaeology of the UB, received this ERC grant for the project Breaking barriers between Science and Heritage approaches to Levantine Rock Art through Archaeology, Heritage Science and IT (LArcHer). Member of the Prehistoric Studies and Research Seminar (SERP-UB), Domingo worked on the renewal of research of the Levantine rock art –highlighting the multidisciplinary focus- and contributed to the finding and the study of the site in la Volta Espessa (2013) and la Ferranda (2016) in Vilafranca (Castelló), two prehistoric sites that are important for the knowledge of the Levantine rock art, declared UNESCO world heritage. In particular, these are archaeological references that show around ten paintings, which are 7,000 years old, depicting well-conserved human and animal figures –bulls, wild boars, deer, etc.- in red and black.  

Progress in colloid experimental physics


Pietro Tierno, tenure track 2 lecturer at the Department of Condensed Matter Physics and member of the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (IN2UB) and the Research Institute of Complex Systems of the UB (UBICS), leads the project Engineering FrustratiOn in aRtificial Colloidal icES degeneracy, exotic lattices and 3D states (ENFORCE). Expert on the field of colloid experimental physics, Pietro Tierno has made high impact contributions in different fields such as the study of colloid dynamics, microfluidics, magnetism, phase transitions and active matter. Tierno had been awarded an ERC Starting Grant in 2013, and it allowed him to create a pioneer research group in the field of manipulation of microscopic matter (Magnetic Soft Matter Group). In these lines, Pietro Tierno will continue promoting research on fundamental issues related to the development of geometrical frustration in physical systems using colloid particles.
