|Team Research Fellowships|
After each GSAS Session, the Global Research Team with the most promising Global Research Project is awarded a Team Research Fellowship to implement their project at a GSAS host institution.
Members of the winning team are hired by a GSAS host institution for a year or more, depending on the requirements of their projects. Fellowships are team-based.
The winning team from the Taiwan Solar Cell Session (below) has members from Japan, South Africa,Taiwan, the Philippines and the United States. Their Winning Research Project – “A More Efficient Architecture for the Sensitization of TiO2 for dye-sensitized Solar Cells” - was selected for implementation at the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) Taiwan.
Scholars from the Sydney Solar Cell Session (shown below with their mentors) implemented their research at Northwestern University. This team includes members from Australia, Taiwan, and the United States.
The winning project(s) from the 2011 Session on Graphene Fundamentals and Applications will be hosted by CEA laboratories on the GIANT Innovation Campus in Grenoble, France. Learn more.
How will your GSAS experience benefit your future research?:
The experience has shown me a very efficient way of coming up with new ideas and developing them into actual project proposals.
How has GSAS helped you develop a global perspective?:
"I got a very broad perspective from some of the lectures. It’s easy to learn the science, I think, but harder to have a broad picture before you get started. That’s what the lecture series gave me."
What I appreciated most:
"What I appreciated here most was this very intense atmosphere which you normally do not have at a workshop. There was this intense atmosphere between the ones giving the lectures but also then between the young researchers on the teams. In the end, I was astonished by the really high quality of scientific background they achieved in such a short time."
