ERC Starting Grant for ECAP professor Anna Nelles
Anna Nelles, who is both a professor at ECAP and a scientist at DESY, has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant worth 1.5 Mio EUR for 5 years. With the Radio Neutrino Observatory in Greenland (RNO-G) she is building a network of radio antennas to eavesdrop on extremely energetic neutrinos from space. ECAP has been constructing hardware for RNO-G since its first antenna in 2020. The ERC grant will fund several PhD students and post-docs to work on RNO-G to enable precision calibration and (hopefully) the discovery of EeV neutrinos.
