Applicants are invited to promote the interactions between UK and German based terahertz research communities. DFG have allocated up to 10 places for UK based terahertz researchers to attend a workshop taking place in Wuppertal, Germany (near Düsseldorf).
This workshop will include projects funded in 2021 under DFG’s priority programme ‘INTEREST’.
Read more about the INTEREST programme (dfg.de).
You do not need to have a pre-existing relationship with researchers based in Germany. However, your research interests should align or have relevance to the priorities of DFG’s INTEREST programme. Priority areas are outlined below.
This area relates to novel physical phenomena, technologies, and devices enabling integrated terahertz systems. This includes:
- heterointegration of III-V with BiCMOS
- integration of novel materials or material systems (such as graphene and spintronics)
- novel scalable integrated terahertz arrays.
This area relates to novel multi-functional integrated systems. This includes:
- novel terahertz system partitions and integrated radio transceivers
- integrated broadband laser-induced terahertz generation in silicon technologies
- complete electronic and photonic integration of terahertz measurement systems on a chip level.
This area relates to novel terahertz science and applications based on integrated terahertz systems. This includes integrated terahertz systems for:
- biomedical applications
- space applications
EPSRC reserves the right to not fill all spaces if suitable research interest and eligible individuals do not apply.
The workshop is due to take place on 10 to 11 October 2022.
The workshop will be two days long and involve the following:
- scientific keynote session with international guest speakers
- strategic and networking session with overview talks given by funding authorities (DFG and EPSRC representatives) and talks given by speakers of larger terahertz networks in Germany and UK
- individual project presentations from INTEREST and EPSRC projects.
If you are interested in delivering a keynote talk, please indicate this in your submission. All attendees are expected to display a poster.
The full economic cost available is up to £1,000. EPSRC will fund 100% of travel and subsistence costs only for attendance to the workshop. We will fund up to 10 researchers.
Normal EPSRC rules for travel and subsistence apply.
EPSRC will make arrangements for accommodation in Wuppertal for all funded participants.
You will be expected to arrange your own travel to and from the workshop. Upon completion of the workshop, you will be able to submit these costs to EPSRC for reimbursement.
Funds available will be subject to the accommodation costs. Further details will be shared with successful candidates.
Public funds should be deployed with due consideration to value for money and environmental impact across all activities. All travel claims should evidence value for money as the primary consideration.
Members of the EPSRC information and communication technologies theme will be in attendance.
