Young Academy of Europe welcomed two Polish members

For the first time since its formation in 2012, two Polish scientists were elected to the Young Academy of Europe (YAE).

Dr Filip Granek graduated with honors Electrical Engineering at Wroclaw University of Technology in 2004. Between 2004-2011 he worked for over 8 years abroad, first at the Energy Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) in Petten, the Netherlands and later at Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE) in Freiburg, Germany. He completed his PhD thesis at the University of Freiburg in the field of the advanced silicon solar cell concepts in 2009. Between 2009 and 2011 he was the head of the research group at Fraunhofer ISE focusing on the novel laser processes for the manufacturing of the silicon solar cells. Since late 2011 he is leading the Printed Electronics Laboratory at Wroclaw Research Centre EIT+. He is author and inventor with over 50 scientific publications and 10 international patents or patent applications. His scientific interest include the novel solar cell concepts and the technology and characterization of the printed electronics devices.

Dr Artur Bednarkiewicz obtained his M. Eng. degree in physics and biomedical engineering in 1998 at the Wrocław University of Technology, and his Ph.D. and habilitation in physics in the Institute of Low Temperature and Structure Research (INTiBS) of the Polish Academy of Sciences in 2003 and 2013, respectively. After the postdoctoral fellowship in the European Commission Joint Research Centre, Italy (2005-2009) he initiated the NAOMIS group in Wroclaw Research Centre EIT+. The group focuses on the applications of luminescence nanoparticles to bioimaging and biodetection (Nanoparticle Assisted Molecular Imaging and Sensing).
