the 2nd of April, the MUSIQ project officially kicked-off with the
first face-to-face meeting with the whole consortium. All MUSIQ Beneficiaries
had the chance to meet at the coordinating Cardiff University, School of
Biosciences. The project Coordinator, Prof Paola Borri gave everyone a warm
welcome and started the meeting by introducing and updating all participants on
the objectives of the four year project. The meeting offered an engaging
platform to discuss the research that will take place as well as the recruiting
strategy for the 15
atmosphere was full of energy and the 11 represented partners from 8 countries
are excited to dive into the project. We will look forward to the collaborations
and results that are going to follow within the next 48 months.
The MUSIQ project officially started on 1. April and will run for
the next four years under the coordination of Prof. Paola Borri from the
University of Cardiff in the United Kingdom.
MUSIQ has received 3.9 million euro funding from the Horizon 2020
Framework Programme of the European Union. The following scientific
objectives highlight the research training goals of this project:
- Investigate nonlinear optical phenomena originating from the intrinsic response of natural biomolecules.
- Combine nonlinear imaging with ultrafast two-dimensional spectroscopy
- Achieve single molecule detection and super-resolution in coherent nonlinear imaging.
MUSIQ is designed as an integrated research and training network
where we will recruit 15 early stage researchers (ESRs) to work towards
the central ambitious goal of developing the ‘quantum microscopes of
To enhance the career perspective of the ESRs by training them in a
broad range of cutting-edge scientific, technical and transferable
skills, through a unique combination of projects, secondments, and
tailored courses provided by world-leading academic institutions,
high-tech companies and professional partners, across different European
