Congratulations to Jiali Shen and Federico Bianchi!

Jiali Shen, one of the former ESRs of the EU MSCA project CLOUD-MOTION, has successfully defended her PhD thesis “Oxidation of Dimethyl Sulfide and Iodine in the Marine Atmosphere, and their Contribution to new Particle Formation.

Associate Prof. Federico Bianchi, one of the former ESRs of the EU MSCA project CLOUD-ITN, acted as the Custos (main supervisor).


From February 13 to February 17, 2023, the CLOUD community met for the CLOUD Data Workshop and the CLOUD-DOC Collaboration Meeting in Bad Zurzach, Switzerland.

Paul Scherer Institute (PSI), one of the CLOUD-DOC partners organised the meeting. Imad El Hadad and Lubna Dada from PSI contributed to the success of the event.


Coordinator of the EU Project CLOUD-DOC Professor Joachim Curtius from Frankfurt University informed the community about the progress in the project.

Pedro Rato, Early Stage Researcher of CLOUD-DOC at CERN, co-organised the meeting. He gave a talk on the DAQ system of the CLOUD project.




The Consortium Agreement of CLOUD DOC has been finalised.


CLOUD-DOC Kick-off meeting took place at CERN as a part of the CLOUD Collaboration Meeting.

During the CLOUD-DOC Kick-off meeting Joachim Curtius, Project Coordinator, University of Frankfurt, initiated to take the formal decision on establishing the Supervisory Board of CLOUD-DOC. The main task of the SB is to co-ordinate CLOUD-DOC’s network-wide training activities. According to the Grant Agreement it consists of the Network Coordinator, representatives from each beneficiary (all senior scientists in charge of the DC supervision), representatives from all partner organizations, members of the External Advisory Committee and two elected DC representatives.
It was agreed to establish the SB as proposed. There were no objections, questions, or suggestions to the proposed SB.
