Polish-Czech research projects to be realized under the Weave-UNISONO competition


Thanks to the cooperation between the National Science Centre (NCN) and the Czech agency Czech Science Foundation (GAČR), six teams from Poland will soon be able to start research work. They have received almost PLN 7 million for cooperation with Czech partners. Four projects will be implemented in the group of science and technology, two in the area of life sciences.

In the group of science and technology, the highest amount, PLN 1.6 million, was allocated for the project ‘New anti-Stokes luminescent markers and multicolour FRET for single-strand DNA sequencing’, implemented by Prof. Artur Bednarkiewicz from the Institute of Low Temperatures and Structural Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences, together with Prof. Hans Gorris from the Masaryk University in Brno. 

In the area of life sciences, funding of over PLN 1.3 million was awarded to Dr Małgorzata Stanek from the Institute of Botany of the Polish Academy of Sciences for a project on the impact of alien and native woody plants on vegetation and soil. On the Czech side, the project will be led by Dr Jan Pergl from the Institute of Botany of the Czech Academy of Sciences, while the project partner on the Polish side will be the University of Silesia in Katowice.
