Felix Hamza-Lup Receives Erasmus+ Grant
Professor Felix Hamza-Lup (Computer Science) has been awarded and is coordinating an Erasmus+ grant for international research collaborations with Transylvania University of Brasov, Romania. Erasmus+ is a European Union funded program for international exchange collaborations for faculty and students between higher education institutions. The grant is renewable every year for a five-year period based on the results of the research collaborations. Interested faculty and students from the College of Engineering and Computing are invited to seek participation in the project. The current area of research is Sensor Networks, Renewable Energy and 3D Simulation, however additional research areas may be proposed for collaboration.
“It is an honor for Georgia Southern to have been selected for an Erasmus Plus Grant. Increasing international collaboration opportunities through student and faculty exchanges ensures that our students graduate as active and aware participants in the global economy and society. Thanks to Dr. Felix Hamza-Lup’s worldwide vision and exceptional international experience gained through his past Fulbright fellowships, Georgia Southern will be identified as a university open to important global initiatives,” notes Georgia Southern Director of International Programs and Services Dorothée Mertz-Weigel, Ph.D.
