FET PROACTIVE project VIRUSCAN awarded by EU – H2020 framework program

FET Proactive projects defy the bounds of innovation

The essence of FET Proactive is to encourage researchers from different disciplines to work together to open promising paths towards radically new technological possibilities. Four specific topics were identified for this call:
• Future technologies for societal change,
• Biotech for better life,
• Disruptive information technologies,
• New technologies for energy and functional materials.
In this call, 12 projects have been selected to face the challenge of making new and exciting breakthrough discoveries in these diverse research fields, creating tomorrow's innovation. Among them, the project coordinated by Javier Tamayo, leader of the Bionanomechanics Lab: VIRUSCAN – Optomechanics for Virology, aims to apply frontier advancements in optomechanics to the biosensing and diagnostic fields and to create a new interdisciplinary research community with the goal to advance optomechanics, nanoelectromechanics, native mass spectrometry and biophysics towards clinical applications.
The project Viruscan , with project ID: 731868 and funded under: H2020-EU.1.2.2. – FET Proactive with €7,148,586.25 gathers several research groups of excellence:
