Lodz University of Technology is successfully applying for funds under the European Commission's international research programmes. In the new budget perspective for 2021-2027, 44 applications have been submitted so far, of which 10 projects have been awarded funding and 8 more are awaiting evaluation.


Contracts have already been signed for the co-financing of four projects under the Horizon Europe Programme. In the case of another two, agreements will be concluded soon. Importantly, two projects under Horizon Europe and one under the LIFE programme are coordinated by Lodz University of Technology. The success rate of applications from the TUL is 27.8%, which is significantly higher than the average of applicants across the EU of 10.53%.

Rector, Prof. Krzysztof Jóźwik, and the Vice-Rector for Science, Prof. Łukasz Albrecht, met (3.11) with the coordinators of new international research projects implemented at Lodz University of Technology. They presented them with commemorative diplomas, emphasising that involvement in international research projects offers a number of benefits and opportunities for cooperation, as well as participation in the creation of an economy based on knowledge and innovation.

Within the Horizon Europe programme, these are the following projects:

  • SUSTainable industrial DESIGN of TEXtile structures for composites (SustDesignTex) coordinated by Assoc. Prof. Marcin Barburski, from the Institute of Architecture of Textiles, for a project carried out at the Faculty of Material Technologies and Textile Design.
  • BIOmass Valorisation via Superheated Steam Torrefaction, Pyrolisis, Gasification Amplified by Multidisciplinary Researchers TRAINING for Multiple Energy and Products' Added VALUEs coordinated by Eng. Szymon Szufa, Ph.D., from the Department of Safety Engineering at the Faculty of Process and Environmental Engineering (WIPOŚ).
  • Digitally-enabled FLEXible Industries for reliable energy grids under high penetration of Variable Renewable Energy Sources (VRES) (FLEXIndustries) coordinated by Assoc. Prof. Grzegorz Liśkiewicz, from the Institute of Turbomachinery, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (WM).
  • Photonics on Germanium - New Industrial Consortium coordinated by Prof. Tomasz Czyszanowski from the Institute of Physics at the Faculty of Technical Physics, Information Technology and Applied Mathematics
  • The titles of two projects coordinated by Prof. Krzysztof Jóźwik from the Institute of Turbomachinery and Dr Aleksandra Ziemiańska-Stolarska (WIPOŚ) cannot be made public at the moment due to the process of concluding an agreement with the European Commission.
  • In the programme LIFE: Complex Awareness Raising and behaviour Change for Mercury-Free City Environment coordinated by Prof. Volodymyr Mosorov from the Institute of Applied Computer Science at the Faculty of Electrical, Electronic, Computer and Control Engineering.
