Project Lunched

We are pleased to announced that Project High sensitive thermal imaging for biomedical and microelectronic application (HSTI) financed within the framework of the FIRST TEAM Programme (Project No 0249) was launched on June, 1st, 2017.



The First TEAM Programme, is a part of the Grant Project of the Foundation for Polish Science (under the name HOMING/POWROTY), financed from the funds of the European Regional Development Fund as part of the Smart Growth Operational Programme 2014-2020  (SG OP), Priority Axis IV: Increasing the scientific research potential, Measure 4.4: Increasing the human potential in the R&D sector.


"The aim of the FIRST TEAM programme is to improve the human potential of the R&D sector, support first research teams supervised by PhDs at the early stage of their careers (regardless of their nationality), and encourage the return of outstanding scientists of Polish origin to Poland or the return of persons who have had a break in their research careers to the R&D sector. Support under the programme will be provided to teams conducting research at research units or companies in Poland, working in the most innovative areas and having a scientific partner, i.e. local or foreign research partner."
