Myron, if the opportunity arises that a grant from Europe may occur, please read the fine print about intellectual property. I read the European grant pdfs and could not find anything specifically.
PS: I agree about people who want to take over, I also find them overbearing.

Exactly my thoughts, if Karel can demonstrate RFR, or show that he is making serious efforts to do so (as he certainly is), he and Charles University would be ideally placed for a big grant from Europe. It all depends on whether the standard referees can bring themsleves to be fair judges of an ECE proposal. In fact I am swinging my work away from space energy now into more interesting basic physics such as RFR because the irritating neuroticism of the inventors gives me the creeps. I have given space energy as much credibility as I can. RFR is actually my main interest – it has such obvious advanatges, and I am trained as a spectroscopist in the far infra red. RFR is also easily understood with the standard model, so it may be worth wording a grant application that way. This would be for post doctoral funds and equipment, overheads, consumables etc.
I think I can apply for one of these grants as an individual, as in the SERC Advanced Fellowship. I have a record number of Fellowships won in open competition so I am well used to the procedure. I have won the following post doctoral Fellowships in tough open competition: SRC, NRCC (Canada), ICI European, JRF Wolfson College Oxford; Ramsay Memorial, SERC Advanced Fellowship, two Univ of Wales Fellowships, Pilcher Senior, IBM UK Fellowship, two Leverhulme Trust Fellowships, von Humboldt Fellowship, plus seven honorary, making 19 in all. This was all for work less important than ECE. So logically there should be a good chance. I am quite used to making applications.
Several people have tried to take over AIAS in one way or another but since it is voluntary and very hard work they soon give up or I just end up blocking them electronically. Some are very overbearing with qualifications hard to find with a microscope, or very overbearing academics with no ideas.
