Recently MESA+ invited her researchers to submit research ideas in the Strategic Stimulation Call 2016. In this call research initiatives are stimulated that contribute to the MESA+ long term strategy; strengthening the current multidisciplinary application areas ‘Unconventional electronics’, Early diagnostics & sensing’ and ‘Storage and conversion of renewable energy’, or explore possible new areas in research or application. The beneficiaries of the MESA+ strategic stimulations call were announced at the MESA+ Meeting on 26 September in Kinepolis, Enschede.

Professor dr. Jeroen Cornelissen, Scientific Director MESA+: “With the available resources we aim to invest in new scientific innovations and further interdisciplinary collaborations. This will further strengthen the present application areas or create new ones. In that way we ensure a successful continuation of the outstanding research and infrastructure of the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology."
