Projects

This section overviews the running and completed European collaborative research projects in which the members of MBN Research Center participate or participated. These projects have been running through the Goethe University under the coordination and the team leadership of Professor A.V. Solov'yov, now the Scientific Director of MBN Research Center. In all these collaborative projects the scientific knowledge of Professor A.V. Solov'yov and his MBN Research team was very essential. Thus now, the ongoing projects ITN ARGENT and PEARL are running under the auspices of MBN Research Center, where the main activity of the team takes place.

  • Advanced Radiotherapy, Generated by Exploiting Nanoprocesses and Technologies (FP7 ITN ARGENT), 2014-2018

    This collaborative project is supported in the frame of the FP7 European Programme. The main objective of this intersectorial and multidisciplinary Initial Training Networks (ITN) is to create a new generation of researchers and experts able to create the platform on which next-generation cancer therapy will be built. The consortium aims to train a cohort of 13 PhDs (Early Stage Researchers – ESRs) to subsequently act as leaders and ambassadors in the field.

  • Periodically Bent Crystals for Crystalline Undulators (H2020 RISE-PEARL), 2015-2018

    This collaborative project is supported by the European Commission in the frame of the Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) funding scheme in the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions under Horizon 2020. The PEARL project aims at advancing the technologies for manufacturing of high quality periodically bent crystals. Such crystals developed in the course of this project will be utilised for the construction of novel light sources of high-energy (from 100 keV up to GeV range) monochromatic electromagnetic radiation by means of a crystalline undulator.
