Good news: I was informed by the M-ERA.NET Call Secretariat that our proposal “VOCSENSOR” was selected for funding. The project is about developing gas sensors, therefore, it is 100% related to the objectives of our “Lendület” research group. The research consortium consists of partners from Taiwan, Spain, Finland and Hungary. In accordance with the M.ERA-NET scheme rules, the Hungarian funding will be provided by OTKA. It will take a few months to get all the paperwork sorted out, but at the end, we will be funded by approx. 15 million HUF total for this 3 year project. I’ll keep the blog updated about the contract negotiation status.
