ERC Advanced Grant for Stefan Schouten

The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded a €2.5 million grant to Professor Stefan Schouten. This prestigious ERC Advanced Grant is for experienced scientists conducting excellent, innovative scientific research. Schouten will focus over the next five years on the development of new methods for climate reconstruction using molecules from algae.


Prof. dr. ir. Stefan Schouten, who is affiliated to the Darwin Center, has been working for years on the application of organic molecules from sediments to reconstruct past climates. With this method the seawater temperature can be derived from the composition of these molecules.
