Joint Call 1

Small Scale Combustion (2006)

The first pilot joint call for proposals on the topic “Small Scale Combustion” was launched at the beginning of March 2006. Five countries participated with their national programmes in this coordinated activity: Austria, Finland, Germany, Sweden and the UK. In the end 5 proposals were funded for a total budget of 1.6 million euro. Presentations about the results were held at the final seminar in Potsdam, September 10th 2008.
