Representatives from all the MECHANO-CONTROL partners, which comprise the UPC and Mind the Byte S.L. in Spain, the Universitair Medisch Centrum Utrecht and Noviocell B.V in the Netherlands, Germany’s Leibniz-Institut, and King’s College London, gathered in Barcelona for the day-long meeting, which discussed technical issues related to the technologies and methods to be used, as well as potential dissemination routes. During the meeting, issues related to the management, finance and technicalities of the MECHANO-CONTROL project were presented and discussed as well.
MECHANO-CONTROL is one of only 12 projects selected out of 210 submissions across Europe. Among all the calls of the FET project so far, it is one of only four projects coordinated in Spain. With its grant of €7m over five years, it is over three-fold larger than ERC grants.
