Horizon2020: Unimore stands out on the national scene for funded projects in the field of electronic components and systems

The results of the analysis conducted by ART-ER on EU Open Data Portal data of March 2022 have been released. Almost 30 million euro have been allocated to Unimore under Horizon2020, i.e. a funding programme created by the European Commission to support and promote research.

The University of Modena and Reggio Emilia stands out on the national scene for funded projects in the field of electronic components and systems, according to the ECSEL JU measure of Horizon2020, a funding programme created by the European Commission, the executive body of the European Union, to support and promote research in the European Research Area (ERA).

The data of this important result obtained by the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia have been released by ART-ER, the new consortium company for innovation and the attractiveness of the territory born from the merger of ASTER and ERVET, following an analysis conducted on March 2022 data from the EU Open Data Portal which have been translated into an easy-to-use interactive tool with all the details on the financed projects and entities, and made accessible on the portal https://emiliaromagnainnodata.art-er.it.

As a whole, Unimore has submitted 94 projects, with funding granted for a total of almost 30 million euro, which means an average of over 300,000 euro per project. This is a very positive result for the university, which ranks twentieth nationally for total funding.

Analysing the situation in detail, as mentioned, Unimore obtains the best result in Italy in relation to the ECSEL JU measure concerning electronic components and systems, a cornerstone of the EU industrial strategy for international leadership in the field of electronics. In this context, in fact, 16 projects have been financed for a total contribution of 2.6 million euro.

“I am very proud of this result - says Prof. Paolo Pavan - which involves me both as Research Delegate and as a researcher. It is a result that makes evident the fruit of the choices made by all colleagues in the electronics area over the years. Participation in European research networks, also through the Interuniversity Consortium for Nanoelectronics (IUNET), has confirmed us as a reliable partner for important projects carried out together with large companies in the sector. The results of the research funded by these projects have contributed to progress in the field of electronic components and systems, but also to a large number of scientific publications in prestigious journals together with colleagues from other research centres and universities."

Since 2014, European contributions for research and innovation projects carried out by the Emilia-Romagna universities have accounted for almost 213 million euro. This is 12% of the 1.8 billion euro of overall contributions disbursed to national universities under the Horizon 2020 European research and innovation program and approximately 4% of the total amount allocated to companies, research organisations and national public entities.

At the end of Horizon 2020, support for scientific excellence, collaborative research and all forms of innovation will be ensured by the new Horizon Europe programme. With a larger budget than the recently concluded programme (95.5 billion euro), Horizon Europe will continue its mission of identifying great goals and helping to solve some of the greatest challenges of our time.
