2 New Projects Have Been Accepted Within the Framework of EU's Research and Innovation Programme Horizon Europe

2 new projects titled “Breakthrough in micro-bolometer imaging” and “Long Life Power Platforms for Internet of Things”, in which Assoc. Prof.  Müjdat Soytürk and VeNIT Lab team participated as partners in Key Digital Technologies (KDT) Joint Venture calls, were qualified to be supported by the European Commission.

Turkey’s organizations  are involved in 11 of the 27 projects supported in the 2021 and 2022 calls of the Key Digital Technologies Joint Venture (KDT JU) in the Institutionalized Partnership type established under the Horizon Europe Program.

Within the scope of the "HORIZON-KDT-JU-2022-2-RIA-Topic-1" call, Marmara University is  the country coordinator, while Arçelik Inc. Comp., BigTRI Bilişim Inc. Comp.  and Yonga Teknoloji Microelectronics Research and Development Trade. Ltd. Comp.  are  project partners. There are 46 organizations in the LoLiPoP IoT (Long Life Power Platforms for Internet of Things) acronym project consortium. The project aims to develop innovative Long-Life Power Platforms to empower wireless sensor network (WSN) modules in IoT applications

The project with the acronym BRIGHTER (Breakthrough in micro-bolometer imaging) achieved a great success by being funded at the top of the list with the highest score among the projects submitted in all subjects of the 2021 call. There are 16 organizations in the project consortium. With this project, it is aimed to develop 2 new classes of micro-bolometer solutions to reduce the performance gap with their cooled counterparts: 1. Fast thermal micro-bolometer imaging solutions with a time constant in the range of 2.5 to 5 ms, that is, 2 to 4 times faster than today's micro-bolometer technologies. 2. Multi-spectral micro-bolometer solutions that provide access to 2 different wavelengths in the range of 7 to 12 μm at least at pixel level.

We congratulate our  academician Assoc. Prof. Müjdat Soytürk and the VeNIT Lab team and wish them continued success.
