In a thoughtful attempt of the European Commission to combat the dismal Berlin fall weather November 28th brought the news that Kramer’s ERC Consolidator grant proposal —  SOLWET: Electron Transfer Across Solid/Liquid Interfaces: Elucidating Elementary Processes from Femtoseconds to Seconds — was “retained for funding”. The generous support this includes will allow the dramatic expansion of our activities studying ultrafast (photo)electrochemistry. Stay tuned for more about what project encompasses and photos from a suitable celebratory activity (as soon as we decide what that might actually be 🙂 ).
