The University of Szeged, in south-eastern Hungary, has announced the launch of a four-year research and development project supported by a HUF 1.2 billion grant from the Innovation and Technology Ministry. The project involves nine groups from the university’s physics and chemistry institutes. They aim to plan new composite structures made of precious metals and other nanohybrid materials that could be used to develop catalytic convertors or advance sensor technology. They also want to further develop an earlier solution that could recycle oxygen in space.
