We can spend some money during the fall (and until end of March 2017) to start the DISA@LNU research projects already now. The goal is to tie together the consortiums in the respective projects. We can cover costs for preparing collaborations, e.g., for visits at companies, kick-off workshops etc. If you would like to use this jump-start money and get help to build a stronger consortium for your project of DISA@LNU please contact Diana for the details.
Especially, if you could organize a kick-off meeting/workshop in your project before Christmas, we would help you spreading the words about it and (if applicable) invite further interested companies and public organizations. Think rather of getting extra support for something you anyway plan to do (as part of your project or your regular research work) than planning for something new from scratch.
