Start of PIER Seed Projects
Researching together – scientists from DESY, the Universität Hamburg (UHH), and the University Medical Center Eppendorf (UKE) have joined forces to work together in seven PIER research fields: Infection and Structural Biology, Nanoscience, Photon Science, Particle and Astroparticle Physics, and Accelerator Research. Their projects were selected in this year's round of calls for PIER Seed Projects. DESY, the UHH and the UKE will provide nearly 280 000 € over the next two years through the PIER Ideas Fund. With the annually announced Seed Projects, PIER supports joint research projects of DESY and UHH/UKE researchers. In addition, PIER also awards funding for workshops and short visits by international researchers.
