Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability, leading to great personal suffering to victim and relatives, as well as huge direct and indirect costs to society. Strong ethical, medical, social and health economic reasons therefore exist for improving treatment. The CENTER-TBI project will collect a prospective, contemporary, highly granular, observational dataset of 5400 p ...

Targeted disease prophylaxis in European fish farming (TargetFish)

Start date: Oct 1, 2012, End date: Sep 30, 2017,

European aquaculture production provides direct employment to 65.000 people with a turnover of 3 billion €. However, the lack of authorised veterinary medicinal products and the consequent disease outbreaks in farmed fish species costs the sector 20% of the production value. The most appropriate method for disease control, both on economical and ethical grounds, is disease prevention by vaccinatio ...

Advanced Research Initiatives for Nutrition & Aquaculture (ARRAINA)

Start date: Jan 1, 2012, End date: Dec 31, 2016,

Sustainable development of European fish farming is dependent on the availability, environmental sustainability of feeds relying less and less on capture fisheries derived fishmeal and fish oil. The European aquaculture industry has made a determined shift towards the use of feeds based on alternative ingredients which continue to ensure the health and welfare of fish and the nutritional value of ...

The genetic changes associated with domestication in aquaculture pose an increasing threat to the integrity of native fish gene pools. Consequently, there is a bourgeoning need for the development of molecular tools to assess and monitor the genetic impact of escaped or released farmed fish. In addition, exploration of basic links between genetic differences among farmed and wild fish and differen ...

Food security is a global challenge. Within the overall increased demand for food, and particularly meat production, there is also an urgent need to increase supply of protein from sustainable sources. The principle objective of the international and multidisciplinary PROteINSECT consortium is to facilitate the exploitation of insects as an alternative protein source for animal and human nutrition ...

... ow rational organization in the field and to reinforce the "shield" of Europe against such diseases, as more than 30,000 malaria cases are reported annually among returning European tourists. This generic point-of-care platform can be applied to many diseases (eg, cancer, cardiovascular, Alzheimer) by only changing its bio-components. The strong SME participation indicates the high commercializati ...

"COPEWELL aims to provide a better understanding of the underpinning mechanisms and basic knowledge about the physiology, biology, and behaviour of fishes and to give a deeper understanding of the basic mechanisms involved in coping styles. We will use an innovative hypothesis-driven multidisciplinary approach that aims to explore the links between brain function, behaviour and adaptive plastici ...

Knowledge of the last 1000 years in the West African Sahel comes largely from historical sources, which say that many regions were ruled by vast polities.The aim of my archaeological project is to seize how, in fact, lhe 'empires' of this region structured the landscape, and the movemenl of peoples, ideas, andthings, with a focus on the period AD 1200-1850. Is 'empire' really a useful term? I will ...

"Well-Being, Decision-Making and Unemployment in Europe" (WEDEPLOY)

Start date: Jun 1, 2012, End date: May 31, 2015,

"This project examines the linkage between well-being, decision-making and unemployment using available data. The project will develop econometric models of unemployment that allow for complex interactions between morale, job decisions and unemployment status."

Over the last years, large outbreaks of Crimean Congo Hemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV) in several European countries and neighbouring areas are on the rise. This disease poses a great threat to public health due to its high mortality rate, modes of transmission and geographical distribution. Climate changes and observation of the CCHFV vector in central Europe alarm the European community as we can ...

"Oxidation, Lipids, DNA and Mitochondria" (OLDMITO)

Start date: Oct 1, 2012, End date: Sep 30, 2014,

"The overarching aim of the project is to establish a cause-effect relationship among the mitochondrial processes related to ageing in fish (mitochondrial membrane composition, lipid metabolism, ROS production, antioxidant activities, mitochondrial DNA expression), which will advance our understanding of these mechanisms in ectotherms in order to develop a vertebrate model of ageing. The project w ...

The need for considering societal impacts of EU security research has been acknowledged on many occasions by different actors. The problem though is that in traditional thinking, societal impacts are reduced to side effects of instrumental (technological and legal) security measures. This binary thinking has to be overcome. It should and can be demonstrated that societal dimensions of security res ...

"Rapid changes in climate are predicted to disrupt the conditions which determine the distribution of species, with the most dramatic effects predicted to occur at species range edges. At the population level, such changes induce range shifts, both at altitudinal and latitudinal level. With this study, we will try: i) to determine the capacity for population expansion in altitude and latitude as a ...

Flavobacterium psychrophilum and F. columnare cause high mortalities in salmonid culture as the cause of various surface and systemic infections. Traditionally, Flavobacterium infections have been treated with antibiotics, but this is an emotive issue because of the perceived problems associated with tissue residues and the development and spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Indeed the high s ...

INtegral BIOmathics Support Action (INBIOSA)

Start date: Jan 1, 2011, End date: Dec 31, 2011,

Research roadmaps in computational systems biology, autonomic computing and communications target the enrichment of knowledge and technology transfer between (analytic) life sciences and (synthetic) engineering sciences. However, we claim that it is impossible to make significant progress in this transdisciplinary field without a breakthrough paradigm change towards biologically driven mathematics ...
