IMMOCAP project (759603) received funding from the European Research Council, established by the European Commission, within the Starting Grant 2017 scheme.




Dear Visitor,
Thank you for visiting the website of our IMMOCAP project.

We are currently working on the new version of the website and we will be back soon with new features and news from our project.

We will also announce open positions that will be available in the project from Autumn 2020!

Meanwhile, we encourage you to read one of our papers. European Commission with their great efforts ‘released’ the science and we are happy to inform that all of them are published in Open Access mode.

Should you have any questions, concerns or you need a PDF file of the paper, please contact


We hope to see you again soon!
