Competence Center

Research Areas

The scientific results of Comet K2 research projects, together with the expertise of both LCM and our clients provide the means for marketable products and for tomorrow’s solutions. LCM’s intensive cooperation with international universities and research partners serves as a basis for a sustainable internationalization strategy.

National and international founded projects

The LCM team has comprehensive experience in tendering for EU projects and other international project plans. Some of the results of these projects have since been successfully brought onto the market. We have submitted project proposals for the following national programmes and structural funds:

ETP: European Technology Platforms: Initiative to support international networking. Funding: Horizon 2020 – Rules for Participation (100/70%) | JTIs: JTI – Joint Technology Initiatives: public-private partnership to support transnational research collaboration in selected technological fields | cPPPs: contractual Public Private Partnerships | EIPs: European Innovation Partnerships | ERANET: European Research Area | EIT (KICs): European Innovation and Technology Institute – Knowledge and Innovation Communities | HORIZON2020 | FET: Future and Emerging Technologies | Art. 185-Initiativen
