... operties of the semi-volatile components to model this behaviour reliably. Such processes will be quantified through both controlled laboratory studies and carefully designed field measurements. Numerical models on both a street canyon and a neighbourhood (5x5 km) scale will be developed to simulate the key processes, such that spatial patterns and size distributions will be predicted, and compa ...

Sustainable Nanocomposites for Photocatalysis (SusNano)

Start date: Oct 1, 2013, End date: Mar 31, 2018,

Sustainable generation of energy is arguably the biggest challenge facing society. Investment into energy research is considerable (e.g. ~€2.5billion in EU FP7), with one key goal being the capture of solar energy. Production of electricity from sunlight (photovoltaics) is perhaps the most well-known option, but is restricted to less than 0.1% of the current market due to cost and problems with lo ...

The work we propose focuses on the rigorous mathematical development of kinetic theory and the applications of its techniques to the study of models of population dynamics and cell fragmentation and growth in biology, to the dynamics of coagulation and fragmentation processes in physics, and to more recently developed models in the field of collective behavior. The aim is then twofold: to advance ...

Law and Language at the ECJ (LLECJ)

Start date: Feb 1, 2013, End date: Nov 30, 2017,

This project will examine the production of the multilingual jurisprudence of the Court of Justice of the European Union (ECJ), aiming to elaborate a new understanding of the development of EU 'constitutional law'. The development of a rule of law within the EU is due in a large part to the judicial pronouncements of the ECJ. To date there has been no study which has taken account of the fact th ...

Spinal Implant Design (SID)

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

"The spine consists of a series of bony vertebrae that are separated by intervertebral discs. The disc consists of the outer annulus fibrosus and the inner nucleus pulposus. The structure of the spine enables the body to twist and bend to adopt a wide range of postures. For diseased or damaged discs a surgical operation can be used to insert a spinal implant, that will attempt to replace the natur ...

"The Standard Model (SM) of particle physics is the most successful physical theory to date. Its main phenomenology has been confirmed, and it has withstood quantitative test of unprecedented precision in various facilities for 30 years now. Its only piece lacking direct experimental observation is the mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking, providing with mass the weak gauge bosons and it is ...

Whole-body Compliant Dynamical Contacts in Cognitive Humanoids (CoDyCo)

Start date: Mar 1, 2013, End date: Feb 28, 2017,

Description The aim of CoDyCo is to improve the current control and cognitive understanding about robust, goal-directed whole-body motion interaction with multiple contacts. CoDyCo will go beyond traditional approaches: proposing methodologies for performing coordinated interaction tasks with complex systems; combining planning and complianc ...

MNEmerge Project aims to address the issues raised in this call together with a consortium that consists of top European universities, international organisations and multinational enterprises. We wish to provide a comprehensive framework, case study methodology and policy analysis of the activities of MNE and organisations operating in- and outside of EU. We are mostly interested on activities th ...

An ideal intervention in a chronic inflammatory disease such as Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) would be a preventive one. In order to develop preventive strategies and therapies two key developments need to occur: (1) Biomarkers need to be identified that can be used to predict an individual’s risk of developing RA. (2) Modifiable disease mechanisms need to be identified and characterized in the early ...

Cross cultural research has revealed differences in the expression and experience of emotions related to individualistic/collectivist (IC) cultural values. The in- versus out-group context and the level of self-relevance of a situation affect these IC differences. Williams syndrome (WS) is a genetic disorder associated with abnormalities in emotional responding. Individuals with WS show heighted e ...

"The main research goal of SEACOAT is to improve understanding of biointerfacial processes involved in the colonisation of surfaces by marine fouling organisms. Our vision is that this enhanced understanding will inform the future development of new, environmentally-benign materials and coatings for the practical control of marine biofouling. Our principal objective is to discover which nano- and ...
