AdVanced Aerodynamic Tools for lArge Rotors (AVATAR)

Start date: Nov 1, 2013, End date: Oct 31, 2017,

The motivation for the AVATAR project lies in the fact that upscaling wind turbine designs towards 10-20 MW requires radical innovations to make this feasible. Many of these innovationshave a strong aerodynamic component and can be considered as unconventional from an aerodynamic point of view. As such the analysis of the resulting rotor designs falls outside the validated range of applicability o ...

Ultrasonic Planetary Core Drill (UPCD)

Start date: Dec 12, 2013, End date: Jan 1, 2017,

The Ultrasonic Planetary Core Drill project seeks to build a space-compatible tool that can extract samples of rock from up to 30 cm beneath the surface and then containerise them for caching or return to Earth. This tool will be developed by a consortium led by the University of Glasgow (UK) and supported by Space Systems Finland (Finland), LIDAX (Spain) and Magna Parva (UK). The University of Gl ...

TargetIng novel MEchanisms of Resolution in inflammation (TIMER)

Start date: Jan 1, 2012, End date: Dec 31, 2015,

Resolution of inflammation is a key determinant of pathology, and an active process which involves diverse pathways and molecules. The general objective of the TIMER Consortium is to identify and validate new molecules involved in the resolution of inflammation as a basis for the development of innovative therapeutic strategies in chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The project will invo ...

Social Signal Processing Network (SSPNet)

Start date: Feb 1, 2009, End date: Jan 31, 2014,

The ability to understand and manage social signals of a person we are communicating with is the core of social intelligence. Social intelligence is a facet of human intelligence that has been argued to be indispensable and perhaps the most important for success in life.Although each one of us understands the importance of social signals in everyday life situations, and in spite of recent advances ...
