H2020 PEGASUS kick-off meeting

The kick-off meeting of PEGASUS was held in Lisbon on November 6. The meeting, highlighted the project goals and the roles and responsibilities of the different partners, defining the best strategy to implement the work program.

PEGASUS is a FET-Open European project funded by the H2020 program of EU. The project's ambitious purpose is to translate the unique properties of plasmas into extraordinary material characteristics, using a multitude of specific plasma mechanisms to control energy and matter at nanoscale level. 

PEGASUS ultimate goal is to create a highly-efficient catalyst-free novel plasma method, along with a proof-of-concept device, for the large-scale direct synthesis of functionalized N-graphene.

PEGASUS is a consortium led by Instituto Superior Técnico (Portugal), in partnership with the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (France), the Institut Jozef Stefan (Slovenia), the Kiel University (Germany), the Sofia University (Bulgaria) and Charge2C-Newcap Lda (Portugal).

At IST, the project is developed in the Plasma Engineering Laboratory of Instituto de Plasmas e Fusão Nuclear (campus Alameda), under the coordination of Dr Elena Tatarova.
