Proposal Workshop November 2018: eseia's next challenges


On 13th November 2018, eseia held the Proposal Workshop together with the General Assembly Meeting in Brussels and presented four proposals for EU funding project calls.

Last Tuesday 13th November, four proposals were discussed at the Proposal Workshop held during eseia’s General Assembly in Brussels. First, eseia Project Manager Miguel Rey Mazón described a Marie-Sklodowska Curie Action for Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (MSCA-RISE), tentatively named Smart Urban Mobility Systems Innovation Exchange (SUMSIE) that will focus on urban mobility and will follow closely the 2017 submission that received very good marks—however, not funded at that time). eseia will lead the consortium and coordinate the preparation of the proposal.

Katarzyna Siuzdak from IMP PAN made a short presentation on the call Strengthening EU materials technologies for non-automotive battery storage (Research and Innovation Action, LC-BAT-2-2019) which is a good opportunity to engage in an interesting research topic in material science. She proposes to explore new composite materials that contain carbon structures and transition metal oxide nanomaterials (e.g. Fe2O3, Mn2O3, CuO, Co3O4) to complement on-going research in lithium-ion electrodes. An institution interested in leading this proposal is sought!

Tina Žužek from the Jožef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana wants her institution to lead a proposal in the topic of smart materials for the call Smart materials, systems and structures for energy harvesting (Research and Innovation Action, LC-NMBP-32-2019). Their proposal will target developing new materials capable of harvesting energy at lower environmental costs (e.g. fewer emissions and waste).

Lastly, Katarzyna Siuzdak took again the stage to discuss an approach for the call Research and innovation for photocatalytic synthesis (Research and Innovation Action, CE-NMBP-25-2019), which would be led by IMP PAN, to use one-dimensional nanostructures (such as wires, rods, belts or tubes) made of ordered metal-oxide nanotubes and 1D-wires to study the relation between nanoarchitecture and photoactivity.

eseia members and interested organisations are encouraged to contact us to discuss participation in any of these proposals.
