VUB-TechTransfer's EU-team will soon
extent its offering by incorporating a dedicated support on EU-tenders.
EU-tendering calls will be followed up weekly and announced to you through the
Techtransfer newsletter. If you are interested in a tender, inform the EU
TechTransfer team and we provide support in the preparation of the proposal,
the administrative part and the submission.
The mCBEEs Innovative Training
Network is a joint project between academia and industry with a primary goal to
train young researchers in the field of corrosion and corrosion protection of
micro- and nanodevices. The network focuses on the study of corrosion
mechanisms beyond microscale of components in miniaturized systems in different
environments using localized techniques, and the development of multifunctional
protective coatings to increase the long-term durability of such components. Three
main strategic fields where corrosion could seriously compromise the
performance of micro- or nanodevices have been identified: biotechnology;
electronics and energy technology. One of the PhDs enrolled in the project will
be trained at VUB.
performance in obtaining EU funding is excellent. Since 2015, a growth rate of
about one million euro per year is achieved and the target for 2018 is reached. Here you can find the data:
