TUL ranks 1st in the voivodeship, 8th in Poland among all scientific and research institutions and 1st among technical universities – according to the latest statistics on the use of financial resources, from the largest programme in the history of the European Union supporting research and innovation - Horizon Europe.

This is the reason why the National Contact Point has invited representatives of Lodz University of Technology to share good practices. We will be "on the other side of knowledge" this time, that is not to ask, but to suggest how to prepare good quality proposals, which can lead to success and obtain European funding for projects to develop science and strengthen the competitiveness of the European research space," Prof. Albrecht explains proudly.

Projects coordinated by TUL are:

  • The project with the acronym SustDesignTex, which received almost EUR 1.5 million (including approx. EUR 460,000 for TUL) for activities related to sustainable industrial design of textile structures for composites. They will be implemented jointly with universities from Sweden, Germany, Spain and a Polish enterprise. The coordinator of the project is Dr Marcin Barburski, TUL Prof. from the Institute of Textiles Architecture.
  • A pro-ecological project, entitled LIFE MERCURY-FREE. In this case, the funds allocated from the Horizon Europe programme amount to almost EUR 1.4 million (including about EUR 340,000 for TUL). The consortium implementing the project includes, apart from TUL, AGH University of Science and Technology from Cracow and universities from Ukraine, Portugal, Greece, the Netherlands and Italy. The coordinator of the project is Prof. Volodymir Mosorov from the Institute of Applied Computer Science.
  • The latest project coordinated by TUL is BioTrainValue. The value of the project is over EUR 1.25 million (including EUR 184 thousand for TUL). The project partners are academic and industrial institutions from Slovenia, Greece, Germany, Austria, the United Kingdom and Ireland. The aim of the project is the development and experimental testing of new technologies related to the processing of biomass into innovative bio-based products for energy and agriculture. The coordinator of the project is Dr Szymon Szufa from the Department of Occupational Safety Engineering.

In the ranking, on the website of the National Contact Point for EU Research Programmes, the leading institutions that have received the largest funding from Horizon Europe are: University of Warsaw, National Centre for Research and Development, Jagiellonian University, Fundingbox Accelerator sp. z o.o., Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Institute of High Pressures of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Lodz University of Technology, University of Gdańsk, Silesian University of Technology.
