Expertise in Project Management

Thanks to an extensive track record in terms of collaborative research projects (more than 60 projects in total), Funditec has a strong experience in project management. Funditec projects unit covers the financial and administrative management of large and complex research projects financed under various framework programmes such as Horizon 2020, ENPI, FP7, IEE, Erasmus+, and INTERREG.

The unit takes care of the preparation, presentation, review and negotiation of proposals including the grant agreement preparation, management and project reporting and justification, might it be as a partner or as a coordinator. 

Main Projects

Next Evolution in Materials and Models for Ocean energy Financial Framework: Horizon 2020 Overall Budget: 4’981’007,50 € Period: 01/04/2019 – 30/09/2022 Fields: Low-cost, low-carbon energy supply Website: Objectives: NEMMO will design, model and test downscaled prototypes of larger, lighter and more durable composite blades for >2MW floating tidal turbines to reduce LCoE of tidal energy to €0.15/kWh, meeting 2025 SET-Plan targets and making it competitive to competing fossil fuel sources. Novel blade designs with […]
Friction Optimization of seals through advanced laser surface texturing of moulds Financial Framework: Horizon 2020 Overall Budget: 5’133’871 € Period: 01/11/2017 – 30/04/2021 Fields: Technologies for Factories of the Future Website: Objectives: Polymeric seals are essential components in almost every industrial and mechanical process enabling the effective containment and movement of liquids and gases under extremes of environment. Friction is intrinsically related to seal performance. High friction accelerates wear of the seal leading to […]
Nano-confined photonic system for detection of breast cancer spread to the lymph nodes Financial Framework: Horizon 2020 Overall Budget: 3’998’646,25 € Period: 01/11/2016 – 31/10/2019 Fields: Detection of breast cancer Website: Objectives: The Vision of HypoSens is to develop a widely accepted, non-invasive and crucial prognostic tool for breast cancer progression in early stages to help clinicians and specially oncologists to decide about prompt therapy approaches to patients and improve quality of life and […]
Demonstration project to prove the techno-economic feasibility of using algae to treat saline wastewater from the food industry. Financial Framework: Horizon 2020 Overall Budget: 9’904’938,14 € Period: 01/06/2016 – 31/05/2019 Fields: Enabling the transition towards a green economy and society through eco-innovation Website: Objectives: The aim of the project is to implement and demonstrate at large scale the long-term technological and economic feasibility of an innovative, sustainable and efficient solution for the treatment of […]
