FWLS 2022 finale ended with an exciting result, as the Jury decided to select two winners! Monika Janikova of Comenius University Bratislava and Bo Peng of the University of Cambridge persuaded the Jury with their breakthrough ideas. In their research, Bo Peng tries to break the wall of quantum computation by exploring the potential use of atomic vibrations (phonons), while Monika Janikova attempts to break the wall of using erythrocytes in fighting infection. This year’s FWLS was held in a hybrid format and hosted, besides the young Slovak innovators, an international group of finalists whose countries did not organise their national Labs. That’s also why two tickets to Berlin were awarded. We wish our winners all the best in the international Emerging Talents (FWLS) finale!
