Programmes ERC  

Principal Investigators with a European Research Council grant that is running or ended less than 12 months before 1 January of the call year are eligible to participate in an ERC Proof of Concept Grant. The ERC Proof of Concept Grants aim at facilitating exploration of the commercial and social innovation potential of ERC funded research and are therefore available only to PIs whose proposals draw substantially on their ERC funded research. The results of the 2022 Proof of Concept 2 call (3rd cut-off 29 September 2022) were published. In total 90 ERC grant holders received a Proof of Concept grant including three researchers based at a Flemish host institution:

  • Peter Dedecker, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, “TriScanner - Next-gen fluorescence imaging for research and theranostics” which builds on research funded by the 2016 Starting grant “NanoCellActivity
  • Sarah-Maria Fendt, Vlaams Instituut voor Biotechnologie, “MetaIron - Targeting Mfrn2 to Inhibit Metastatic Cancers” which builds on research funded by the 2017 Consolidator grant “MetaRegulation
  • Wim De Malsche, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, “VORTEX SENSOR - Vortex microflow inducer that enables detection of ultra-low concentrations of species in sensors” which builds on research funded by the 2015 Starting grant “EVODIS

STARGATE - Sustainable Aviation

The Stargate project obtained funding under the special Green Deal call of Horizon 2020, more in particular under the topic of “green ports and airports”.  It received the maximum score of the evaluators and was selected out of more than 40 projects. Stargate’s purpose is to prove that sustainable aviation is possible and happening. It focuses on the further decarbonization of the aviation industry, the improvement of local environmental quality and the stimulation of the modal split. Together with a consortium of 21 European partners with a diverse and rich expertise (airports, community partners, knowledge institutions, consultants, local governments, …), Brussels Airports takes the lead as lighthouse airport to develop and implement innovative solutions. Results that prove successful can be deployed at the fellow airports (Toulouse, Budapest, Athens). Over the course of the coming five years, the consortium will exchange knowledge to investigate and realize more than 30 concrete projects.
