The overall goal of this proposal is a systematic study of C*-algebras related to coarse structures of metric spaces and discrete groups. The background theme is the interplay between analysis and coarse geometry. It addresses questions relating to exactness of discrete groups and spaces, Roe algebras and the Baum--Connes conjectures.The interplay between coarse and analytic properties is exemplif ...

Supernovae: Physics and Cosmology in the Next Decade (SPCND)

Start date: 01 Jun 2014, End date: 31 May 2019,

"Exploding stars, or supernovae, impact upon many diverse areas of astrophysics, from galaxy formation, to stellar evolution, to cosmology and studies of dark energy. I am playing a leading role in new, wide-field, high-cadence optical surveys that are revolutionising the study of supernovae, searching vast volumes of space, locating hundreds of events to study their demographics in detail, and un ...

"Modern society, including Europe, faces a variety of global issues, such as global environmental (including climate) changes, global economic and financial crises as well as global energy and sustainable development. Many of these global challenges facing humanity are geo-spatial in nature, with big spatio-temporal data from location-based events or services that are complexly connected and inter ...

Conduct Disorder (CD) and Oppositional Defiant Disorder with symptoms of Conduct Disorder (which is included among the abbreviation “CD” throughout the proposal) has a highly negative impact for the affected individual as well as for families and society. Although the number of females exhibiting serious aggressive behaviours is growing, the majority of studies on aetiology and treatment of CD hav ...

Communication About SocioScientific Issues (CASSIS) (CASSIS)

Start date: 01 Feb 2014, End date: 31 Jan 2018,

"CASSIS (Communication About SocioScientific Issues) is a collaborative research project between four universities in France, England (2) and New Zealand. The overall aim of the proposed staff exchange programme is to improve communication about socioscientific issues (SSIs) between people with opposing views, to help them to develop a collaborative reflection and to improve their reasoning integr ...

The overall aim of the EC call is building up a scientifically literate society, which enables its citizens to participate in the research and innovation process as part of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). This calls for democratic citizenship education, in which two educational approaches, often presented independently in schools, are integrated, viz. Inquiry-Based Science Education (IB ...

The scientific aim of enVIRO is to develop novel low-cost paper-based microfluidic systems for the detection of waterborne pathogens. Norovirus and E. coli will be the exemplar targets as they are the primary agents of global gastrointestinal infections caused by contaminated drinking and bathing water. Three-dimensional microfluidic paper analytical devices (µPADs) will be implemented with isothe ...

Label Free Particle Sorting (LAPASO)

Start date: 01 Oct 2013, End date: 30 Sep 2017,

"LAPASO will provide a unique training opportunity for 15 fellows in a highly interdisciplinary and intersectorial environment with the overarching scientific objective of advancing diagnostics in a wide range of critical medical conditions using advanced microfluidics and nanobiotechnology integration.Microfluidic particle fractionation based on the inherent properties of e.g. cells, microorganis ...

The problem:The design of collective adaptive systems (CAS) must be supported by a powerful well-founded framework for modelling and analysis. CAS consist of a large number of heterogeneous entities with decentralised control and varying degrees of complex autonomous behaviour. These entities may be competing for shared resources even when collaborating to reach common goals. The pervasive but tra ...

The role of Data Centres (DCs) is vital for the Future Internet. However, DC infrastructures are already stressed by data volumes and service provisioning and consumption trends. Emerging demands cannot be addressed by today's DCs and call for a massive redesign or even transformation of DC architectures.COSIGN proposes a new DC architecture empowered by advanced optical technologies and will demo ...

Information processing in classical 'von Neumann' architectures is less efficient compared to biological counterparts when dealing with ill-posed problems and noisy data. The reason is that the biological brain is configured differently and the key is its evolving structure, where connectivity elements between individual neurons, the synapses, undergo 'birth' and 'death' as well as strengthening ...

The gauge/gravity duality conjecture asserts an equivalence between theories of gravity on a curved space and ordinary quantum field theories defined on the boundary of such spaces. This duality has become a powerful tool to study strongly interacting systems by use of a conjectured dual weakly coupled string/gravitational theory, allowing new computations that go beyond the standard perturbative ...

With this proposal the fellow intends to explore the AdS/Ricci-flat correspondence in order to understand and develop holography in Ricci-flat and asymptotically flat spacetimes. This correspondence is a `generalized dimensional reduction' that maps families of asymptotically anti-de Sitter (AdS) spacetimes (i.e. with a negative cosmological constant) to families of Ricci-flat spacetimes, solution ...

The evolution of galaxies and their central supermassive black holes are intimately related. As such, it is of great interest to understand the active growth phase of these black holes and their influence on the surrounding host galaxies. I propose a project to study the outer, dusty region of mass accretion onto supermassive black holes with the objective to address the following open questions:* ...

Within a few years the idea of open data has spread throughout Europe and produced extensive changes especially in thinking about governmental data and how it can be used for public and private purposes. This has also led to a fractured landscape of open data resources, making it challenging to gain an overview. Even on a national level there is an unconstrained growth of regional open data reposi ...
