Five European institutions have come together to establish a new research center in Tren?ín, Slovakia, that specializes in cutting-edge functional glass research. The project, Centre for Functional and Surface-Functionalized Glasses (FunGLASS), is based at the University of Tren?ín and lead by Professor Dusan Galusek. Five groups of international repute (from Germany, Italy, and Spain), among them Wondraczek’s Laboratory of Glass Science, are supporting his effort towards creating this new center of excellence. The project is funded through the Twinning-scheme of the European Commission within its Horizon-2020 agenda.
