Dr Maciej Starostka from the Gdańsk University of Technology together with German researchers will carry out a research project funded under Weave-UNISONO. The Polish research team will be awarded nearly PLN 455,000.

Morse theoretical methods in Analysis, Dynamics, and Geometry” is the title of the awarded project which will be headed by Dr Maciej Starostka (PI), mathematician at the Gdańsk University of Technology. The German research team will be managed by Jun. Prof. Dr Luca Asselle from Ruhr-Universität Bochum.

The Morse theoretical method is a mathematical theory that describes decompositions of differential manifolds into simple pieces, used to study differential equations admitting a variational formulation. Researchers involved in the project will build on the theory, e.g. developing a Morse homology theory for an abstract class of functionals on Banach manifolds as well as for specific classes of functionals. The project will continue the study that has already been funded under the BEETHOVEN project “Morse theoretical methods in Hamiltonian dynamics”.

The project was evaluated by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) in its capacity of the lead agency under Weave-UNISONO. The National Science Centre approved the results of the evaluation and decided to fund the Polish research team.

Weave-UNISONO ranking lists


The Weave-UNISONO call is the result of multilateral cooperation between research-funding agencies associated in Science Europe and aims at simplifying the submission and selection procedures for research proposals that bring together researchers from two or three different European countries in any discipline of science.

The selection process is based on the Lead Agency Procedure (LAP), under which only one partner institution is responsible for merit-based review and the others simply accept the result.

Under Weave, partner research teams apply in parallel to the lead agency and their relevant domestic institutions. Their joint proposal must include coherent research programmes and clearly spell out the added value of international cooperation.

The Weave-UNISONO call accepts proposals on a rolling basis. Polish teams wishing to partner up with colleagues from Austria, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Switzerland, Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium-Flanders are encouraged to carefully read the call text and submit their funding proposals.
