FER won five projects in the Croatian Science Foundation “Research Projects” framework, which was published in May 2016, out of twenty-one project proposals from the field of technical sciences.
The “Research Projects” programme was developed with the aim of supporting research groups which deal with internationally and/or nationally relevant issues, and whose leaders are recognized for their scientific achievements and mentoring skills.
In the “Program for Encouraging Research and Development Activities in the Field of Climate Change” framework, which was published in April 2016, FER won one project, out of 10 approved projects.
The aim of this programme is to support research and development activities in the area of mitigation and adaptation to climate change. By encouraging Croatian research community to actively participate in solving nationally relevant problems related to climate change and related measures, with special emphasis on energetic sustainability and mutual cooperation of different sectors, an extra emphasis is placed on the development of a sustainable society.
Total value of these six new FER projects is 5,288,570.00 HRK.
