PEER Funding M Squared Lasers – Fraunhofer Centre for Applied Photonics


Successful: €3.5m awarded
PEER funding was used to provide specialist consultant support for proposal development. In this case the consortium opted to pay the success fee, which we understand to be several times greater than the PEER contribution. The proposal was submitted to the ICT26 call under H2020-ICT-2014-1. 
CHEQUERS will investigate technology that will enable the detection of explosives from a greater distance, providing a safer environment for the individual. The application for the technology is to detect explosives and chemical warfare agents for the security sector and even potentially catastrophic leaks in the oil and gas industry. The project is up and running and has stimulated the employment of a new person in M Squared, as well as generating new ideas and potentially a spin-off proposal.
