Polish-German research project at the AGH UST

AGH UST scientists, together with partners from Germany, will carry out two research projects within the framework of the OPUS 22 + LAP/Weave competition organised by the National Science Centre.

Dr (Eng.) Michael Friebe, Associate Professor at the AGH UST from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Automatics, Computer Science, and Biomedical Engineering, and Gabriele Krombach from Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen will focus on vibroacoustic sensorics for medical device guidance. The project received funding in the amount of PLN 1,430,877.

Synergistic application of electronic structure engineering and microstructure engineering for the development of cobalt-free high-voltage cathodes for Na-ion batteries is, in turn, the title of a project whose leaders are Professor Janina Molenda from the Faculty of Energy and Fuels and Ehrenfried Zschech from Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg. For this project, they will receive PLN 1,379,210.

Within the OPUS 22 + LAP/Weave, researchers could apply for money to fund projects implemented without the participation of foreign partners, but also for bi- and trilateral projects in LAP cooperation, projects with the participation of other international partners, as well as projects that require the use of large research equipment. The competition was intended for all scientists, regardless of their career stage. The LAP procedure is a new standard in application evaluation, applied in European institutions that provide funding for research projects. It has been introduced to make it easier for international research teams to apply for research funds for joint projects and to improve the process of application evaluation by research-funding institutions.
