Past Research Projects

Since start of our research and development ativities in 2006, the total acquired funding as of August 2022 is €48 Million  of which Professor Teizer’s share is over €9 Million  (numbers are not adjusted for inflation). This puts our research and development work in a healthy and continuous mode of operation that benefits our existing and future research and teaching employees and all our sponsors and collaborators.

A selection of successfully-completed past projects are listed below:
