ENAC fosters interdisciplinary research

Since 2020, 3 calls for ENAC Interdisciplinary Cluster grants have been launched. We would like to thank everyone who sumbitted a proposal, i.e. 23 proposals, 35 different labs and 53 Principal Investigators. All 14 successful proposals, involving 23 different labs across the 3 ENAC Institutes (IIE, IIC, IA), can be found on our website.

A new internal call for proposals to further boost interdisciplinary research, was launched on 12 Sept. 2022 under the name "ENAC Flagsip projects", with a deadline for pre-proposal submission on 11.10.2022 (17:00 CET)! All information and Applicant Toolkit for this call can be found on this webpage.
