Proposal -  Composite Materials under Dynamic Extreme Loading (CoDEx), 7th framework programme. The coordinator of the programme is Cranfield University, UK.

Cost proposal - Dynamic Testing for Materials and Structures Research. The research network covers totally 21 universities and research organizations. The coordinator of the proposal is the University of Applied Sciences of Southern Switzerland. The proposal did not pass the evaluation round, but will be modified and re-submitted in 2010.
