SEE-ERA.NET funds scientific cooperation for 161 research teams

23.07.2007
Through the first Southeast European Era-Net (SEE-ERA.NET) "Pilot Joint Call for Research Proposals" 161 research teams from all participating countries in 32 selected projects will receive funding for cross-national research and networking.

The projects involve three thematic areas:

- Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology; sub area: Sustainable production and management of biological resources from land, forest and aquatic environments

- Information and Communication Technologies; sub area: Applications Research

- Environment; sub area: Environmental Technologies

This call is funded by national contributions from the 14 participating countries: Austria, Albania, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, and Slovenia.

321 eligible project proposals involving 1437 research teams were submitted until the deadline for the call on March 31, 2007, including 739 teams from the Western Balkan countries. This clearly shows the need but also the potential for more scientific cooperation with the Western Balkan countries.

For more details and statistics of the call please take a look at: http://www.see-era.net/pjc/index.html).

These encouraging results are one reason for the development of a new research-funding programme - the Regional Programme for Cooperation with South-East Europe - ReP-SEE. This programme will provide several calls for proposals with increased budget for funding scientific cooperation in the EU and the Western Balkan countries.

Please check the SEE-ERA.NET website regularly for more information and updates: www.see-era.net

SEE-ERA.NET is supported by the European Commission under the 6th Framework Programme.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
