A 1.5 million euro ERC grant has been awarded to Dr. Alberto Guardone, one of the members of the KCORC. The grant is devoted to the field of non-ideal compressible fluid dynamics (NICFD), of which knowledge can contribute significantly to the development of more efficient turbines in ORC systems. A more detailed description of the project can be found here. We congratulate Dr. Alberto Guardone with this achievement and hope the project can help us develop better ORCs!
