The major concern of the Hector Fellow Academy is to encourage interdisciplinary research. The Academy supports joint scientific projects between several Hector Fellows through research funding in various ways. Current research projects of that kind are „High performance micro-electrodes for retinal implants“, „Epigenetic Effects of Parental Stress in Offspring“, „Fundamentals of Gold Catalysis“ and „Mechanical Metamaterials“. In the interdisciplinary projects, the Hector Fellows are supported by young scientists.
In this project new micro electrodes for retinal implants are being developed.
Stress & Epigenetics
In this project epigenetic modifications of gene expression by environmental stressors are investigated.
Fundamentals of Gold Catalysis
In this project the characteristics of innovative gold catalysts are explored.
In this project the characteristics of new metamaterials are investigated.
