5th Joint Call: Announcement of Selected Projects

, by EIG CONCERT-Japan

It is our great pleasure to reveal the 5 selected projects of the EIG CONCERT-Japan 5th Joint Call for projects in the field of Functional Porous Materials.

10 funding organisations from 9 countries participated in the 5th call in 2018: JST (Japan), AEI – MINECO (Spain), BMBF (Germany), BNSF (Bulgaria), CAS and MEYS (Czech Republic), CNRS (France), MITA (Lithuania), NCBR (Poland), TUBITAK (Turkey).

43 proposals were successfully submitted, more than double the amount last year, a proof of the programme’s dynamism and of the call’s relevance for European and Japanese researchers.

Following the assessment and recommendation by an expert panel, the participating funding organizations selected the 5 projects for funding:
