Tyndall lands more funding

Wednesday, 4th September, 2019 5:00pm

A research facility on Leeside has secured another €8 million in funding, it revealed at its annual report launch yesterday.

The Tyndall National Institute announced on Wednesday that it successfully secured the EU funding as part of the Horizon 2020 programme. The institute was one of the biggest individual Irish beneficiaries of this significant round of 2019 funding, despite stiff competition from other European bodies.

Tyndall’s Head of EU Programmes, Dr Giorgos Fagas said: “Our continued success in Horizon 2020 demonstrates the quality of our research and the value it brings to the Irish and European ecosystems, in particular in our core areas of micro-nano electronics, photonics and energy.”

Since the launch of Horizon 2020, Tyndall is in the top ten beneficiaries across Europe in the area of information and communication technologies.

Tyndall will lead four of the 15 international multi-partner projects which it won in 2019, including a major photonics pilot line for medical technologies, a Marie-Sklowdoska-Curie career development programme for 27 fellows, two energy projects and another in cryogenic electronics for quantum technologies.
