Professor Emanuele Orgiu, who recently came to the INRS Centre Énergie Matériaux Télécommunications, is part of the new cohort of young researchers admitted to the Young Academy of Europe. He was recognized by his peers for his scientific excellence and accomplishments.
Among his many accomplishments, Professor Orgiu coordinated the extensive and multidisciplinary European project Bottom-Up Blueprinting Graphene Based Electronics (UPGRADE) from 2013 to 2016. This project, worth 1.3 M€ ~1.8 M$, brought together groups from France, Germany, Italy, and Belgium to study a new bottom-up approach to generate graphene nanoribbons that, unlike pristine graphene, display unique semiconducting properties with potential uses in information and communication technologies.
Professor Orgiu's scientific excellence was also acknowledged by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), which named him Emerging Investigator twice in recent years for his research on charge transport in semiconducting molecules and assemblies.
The Young Academy of Europe
The Young Academy of Europe brings together young European scientists and researchers that want to be part of a network that discusses science and scientific policies in the European Union to advance science for future generations. The academy's next annual meeting will be held in Budapest September 4-6, 2017.
