Nine additional projects supplement the research
The new projects were approved by the Research Council on 1 July 2020 and specifically fill remaining research gaps that remained after the first call for proposals in modules 1 and 2.
The Research Council followed the recommendation of the steering committee of NRP 77, composed of international experts. The 28 projects submitted after the second call for proposals were peer-reviewed by external experts and assessed by the steering committee. At the end of this process, 9 projects were recommended to the Research Council for approval, the programme thus comprises a total of 46 research projects.
A first programme-specific meeting will take place on 21 and 22 September 2020, marking the start of the research phase.
