Project Management Jülich

As one of the biggest project management organisations in Germany, Project Management Jülich – PtJ is a competent partner for science, industry and politics. The main task of PtJ is the scientific and administrative management of national funding programmes on behalf of the German federal government and state governments.
Project Management Jülich has more than 30 years of sound experience in government funding for research and innovation. It supports the ministries in the design of new funding priorities within the framework of the funding programmes and the coordination and preparation of the corresponding calls for proposals. Project Management Jülich provides advice for those looking for financial contribution on national and European funding programmes.
With six National Contact Points dealing with the most important topics targeted by European research funding, it is closely integrated in the implementation of EU Research Framework Programmes.
The National Contact Point for Materials informs and advises applicants about funding opportunities for materials themes and cross-cutting Key Enabling Technologies (CrossKETs) in the EU’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
By participating in a number of ERA-NET projects, Project Management Jülich also plays a role in expanding the European Research Area.

Eric Le Bourhis


Eric Le Bourhis is professor at Poitiers University (Futuroscope, France) in the department of materials' physics. He initially taught at a secondary school in Lima (Peru) between 1989 and 1991. Upon returning to France, he gained his PhD at Paris VII University in 1994. Then he joined Evry University for one year as an assistant professor and subsequently the Saint Gobain R&D team at Aubervilliers for 4 years as an engineer. During this industrial period, he applied contact mechanics to glass surfaces and coatings developed for glazing, and was also involved in industrial production tasks. He joined Poitiers University in 1998, where he has pursued an activity to promote sol-gel hybrid coatings in close collaboration with glass industrial manufacturers, while his other research activities focus on the mechanical properties of thin-films and nanostructures. He has published 150 papers in international journals, 3 patents and 1 book (Glass Mechanics and Technology, 2nd Ed., Wiley VCH, 2014).
He has been involved in the organisation of different small-scale mechanics workshops (JMC9 2004, SF2M 2004, Matériaux 2010 & 2014), 2 MRS (Boston 2007 & 2009) and 1 EUROMAT (Montpellier 2011) symposia. He is also member of the board of SF2M and FEMS EC.
