Peter was awarded a Veni Lauerate from The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO):
Synthetic materials in life-like motion.
Dr. ir. P.A. (Peter) Korevaar (m), RU – Institute for Molecules and Materials
The assembly of molecular building blocks into dynamic materials that grow, move and self-regulate is one of the most fascinating processes in living matter. The researchers will develop new strategies to apply the underlying principles in artificial, “smart” materials that display controlled motions and exert forces at the micro-scale.
