RheoMan: a five-year, ERC-funded (Advanced Grant), project to model the rheology of the Earth's mantle

Mar 29, 2017 Europe General

On this 29th of March 2017, it may be worth to remember that Europe is this unique initiative where people, turning away from centuries of battles, decided to work together to establish peace and stability on our continent.



In our field, science, Europe has established the ERC which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month. Over 10 years, 7000 grantees have been awarded by the ERC and given outstanding possibilities to achieve their projects.


Thanks to this European programme, 13 researchers from 7 nationalities have worked together in the RheoMan project to establish a new field in computational mineral physics.
