A significant number of a projects won by the IPB’s researches

29. September 2023.

Researchers from the Institute of Physics Belgrade will participate in 11 projects within the Prizma program of the Science Fund of the Republic of Serbia*. According to the results and success analysis announced by the Fund on Thursday, September 28, the Institute is at the top ten of the 176 institutions participating in this public call based on the number of projects selected for funding.

The Prizma program is a new, ambitious program of the Science Fund, which supports basic and applied research projects for which there are no predetermined topics and for which a total budget of 25 million euros is allocated. The projects were classified into six areas, i.e. six subprograms, and the call was open until October 2022, after which the long selection process began.

There is a cooperation of several institutions in the projects in which researchers of the Institute participate. The best result achieved by the Institute was in the field of natural sciences and mathematics, with a total of 32 to-be-funded projects. Along with those projects, one project from the field of artificial intelligence and one from the field of biomedical sciences, will be realized at the Institute.

It is particulary interesting that the Institute of Physics is the project lead partner in the three projects in which the its researchers participate. In other projects, the partner institutions are the project leads.

The three projects with the Institute as the lead partner are Topology-derived methods for the analysis of collective trust dynamics, with Dr. Marija Mitrović Dankulov as PI, Polaron Mobility in Model Systems and Real Materials, with by Dr. Nenad Vukmirović as PI, and 2D Material-based Tiled Network Films for Heritage Protection, with Dr. Tijana Tomašević-Ilić as PI.
