Welcome to the ESF Research Networking Programme
The Functionality of Iron Minerals in Environmental Processes (FIMIN)
Duration: May 2009 - May 2013
Iron minerals play a dominant role in a wide range of environmental processes, such as regulation of element cycles, contaminant degradation, and biotechnological applications. Our ability to understand these processes has grown significantly in the last years due to the development of powerful instrumental and analytical tools both in geochemistry and microbiology.
However, application of this knowledge across disciplines is still at the beginning. In this Research Networking Programme we therefore aim at making these techniques available to a larger number of young scientists from various disciplines based at European research institutes through travel grants and a range of training possibilities.
