EUCLID Project

Having completed nearly 3 years research and its final year on the horizon the H2020 project EUCLID has been looking at more sustainable pest management methods in order to reduce the negative effects of pesticides on human health and the environment. Its main goal is developing sustainable production approaches used in European and Chinese agriculture…

UB-RASDisease

The UB-RASDisease project is being carried out at The Flanders Institute for Biotechnology (VIB). Having been awarded an ERC consolidator grant, lasting approximately 5 years, it will look to find ways to defeat RAS-driven disease. By creating genetically modified mouse models and CRISPR-engineered human cell models they can assess the functional impact of the alterations…

GENOMIA Project

The University of Antwerp has been awarded a 5 year ERC consolidator grant to further look into TAAD (Thoracic aortic aneurysm dissection). The GENOMIA project will use next generation sequencing technologies to establish additional genetic TAAD causes and observe that in many syndromic and non-syndromic families there is both significant non-penetrance and inter- and intra-familial…

BROWSEC Project

With web applications being constantly under attack from malicious programs the BROWSEC project, co-ordinated at The Technical University of Vienna with an ERC consolidator grant, aims to develop a holistic approach to client-side web security. It intends to prevent dangerous information flows by treating the internet browser as a “Blackbox” and monitoring and intercepting inputs…

PHOENEEX Project

PHOENEEX Project

The PHOENEEX project will address the ever increasing demand for compact energy systems for portable devices. Looking at mobile energy sources for such things as mobile phones, the PHOENEEX project will have a hypothesis that the combination of novel precursor materials, new methods for 3D polymer microfabrication and optimised pyrolysis processes will allow for fabrication…

INTERACTION Project

INTERACTION Project

The INTERACTION project, co-ordinated from The University of Copenhagen, will produce a conceptual model for the out-of-equilibrium system of interacting clouds. Using cutting-edge large-eddy simulations it will determine the interactions in the cloud system and will go beyond the traditional forcing-and-feedback descriptions which portray severe shortcomings. With a 5 year ERC consolidator grant it will…

MAGMA Project

MAGMA Project

The MAGMA project will be conducted at The University of Mainz in Germany with an ERC consolidator grant over the next 5 years. The project will develop and employ a new generation of 3D computer models to simulate magma flow, with a full magmatic system in arcs simulated whilst taking realistic rock rheologies and evolving…

PneumoCaTChER Project

PneumoCaTChER Project

The University of Lausanne has been awarded an ERC consolidator grant worth nearly 2 million Euros to co-ordinate the PneumoCaTChER project over the next 5 years. They aim to reveal the molecular mechanisms underlying cell-to-cell variability and its importance in virulence and antibiotic resistance having already set up and developed a novel single cell imaging…

COMANFLO Project

COMANFLO Project

The COMANFLO project will be co-ordinated from ETH Zurich with an ERC consolidator grant worth approximately 1.9 million Euros Running for 5 years it will aim to prove global existence of statistical solutions in several space dimensions by using numerical methods to compute statistical quantities of interest and relate them to existing theories for unstable…

ChronosAntibiotics Project

ChronosAntibiotics Project

The ChronosAntibiotics Project aims to re-sensitise resistant bacteria to antibiotics. It is an example of an ERC consolidator grant awarded to and co-ordinated by The New University of Lisbon over a 5 year period. With antibiotic resistant bacteria set to kill around 300 million people over the next 35 years an alternative strategy to find…

GENPARENT Project

GENPARENT Project

The GENPARENT project will be co-ordinated by Stockholm University with a 5 year consolidator grant from the ERC. It will follow same and mixed sex couples with children to further understand and compare how parental leave and paid for work is divided and what consequences this has on careers. What in the past was known…

NUCLEARWATERS Project

NUCLEARWATERS Project

The NUCLEARWATERS project is an ERC funded project which will be co-ordinated at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. The history of nuclear energy has always been about nuclear physics and radiochemistry, the NUCLEARWATERS project is going to adopt a new approach by instead analysing the history of water. It will investigate historical water-manipulating technologies and…

DarkComb Project

DarkComb Project

The DarkComb project follows a new direction of research into reliable microresonator combs is being conducted at Chalmers university of Technology through an ERC consolidator grant. The DarkComb project aims to substantially increase the capacity in light wave communication systems through the merger of space division multiplexing (SDM) and microresonator frequency combs to make significant…

BAHAMAS Project

BAHAMAS Project

Liverpool John Moores University has been awarded a 5 year ERC consolidator grant to carry out the research project BAHAMAS. It will question, in the first instance, whether the standard model of cosmology and the prediction tensions derived from it require new physics for large-scale structure (LSS) measurements. A modified theory of gravity or time-varying…

Asterochronometry Project

Asterochronometry Project

The University of Birmingham is co-ordinating the ERC funded Asterochronometry project over the next 5 years and is looking to accurately date the ages of tens of thousands of stars in the galaxy. By developing novel star-dating methods the project will carefully appraise the systematic uncertainties on age derived from a limited understanding of stellar…
