The efficient storage of hydrogen is the bottleneck in the development of fuel-cell powered vehicles. Currently, technical targets for hydrogen storage capacity have not been met by any existing technology. The European Union has set research needs for hydrogen storage in very high priority in view of the expected benefits of fuel cells in facing the global warming problem. Experimental studies ha ...

Genomics biomarkers of environmental health (EnviroGenomarkers)

Start date: Mar 1, 2009, End date: Feb 28, 2013,

... mples collected prior to disease diagnosis, exposure and followup health information. Biomarkers will be compared in 600 breast cancer cases, 300 NHL cases and equal numbers of matched controls, to evaluate their risk predictivity. Biomarkers of chronic diseases which establish themselves in early childhood but persist into adult life will be evaluated using a mother-child cohort. Biosamples colle ...

... ot necessary tell us what individual microorganisms can do and if they play any role in ecosystem functioning. The analysis of messenger-RNA has been suggested as an alternative approach for the retrieval of useful information about cell’s major activities, but mRNA molecules degrade very rapidly and their analysis is usually problematic. In the last few years, there has been increasing interest i ...

The synthesis of nanostructured mesoporous polyoxometalates with high internal surface area and ordered or/and hierarchical pore structure remains an open challenge. This proposal aims to the development of such nanostructures. On one hand mesoporous materials with well-defined pore structure and high internal surface area are of great scientific and technological interest because of the possibili ...

... apes. Cages break down in storms, wear and tear of the netting causes holes, and operational accidents lead to spills of fish. Sea-cage equipment is marketed and used across Europe, thus knowledge relevant to the culture of numerous species in diverse environments is required to produce robust equipment and implement risk adverse operations. The Prevent Escape project will conduct and integrate bi ...

Strongly Coupled Gauge Theories at Finite Density (FD HOLOG)

Start date: Nov 1, 2009, End date: Oct 31, 2011,

... ical lattice studies. However, the theories at finite density is currently not accessible even by lattice simulations due to technical problems. Therefore, the properties of QCD at observationally relevant density are largely unknown. The holographic techniques allow us to investigate into such regimes of the gauge theories and the consequences have extensive impact from nuclear physics to condens ...

Start date: Sep 1, 2008, End date: Aug 31, 2011,

... sport models which connect all the most important spatial and temporal scales will be developed and used to quantify how the observed air pollution arises. The models and emission inventories will be evaluated, errors identified and improved on the urban, regional and global spatial scales. Climate change may cause changes in air pollution in and around hotspots, and hotspot pollution can change p ...

A proposal for the concise synthesis of a family of cytotoxic natural products obtained from Polythia Crassa is contained herein. The short and highly effcient synthesis accesses all the structurally diverse family members from two simple common precursors. The synthesis makes use of novel tandem reaction sequences to access these molecules. The molecules and their syntheses are amenable to the in ...

ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH RISKS IN EUROPEAN BIRTH COHORTS (ENRIECO)

Start date: Mar 1, 2009, End date: Feb 28, 2011,

"The overall aim of ENRIECO is to advance our knowledge on specific environment and health causal relationships in pregnancy and birth cohorts by providing support to exploitation of the wealth of data generated by past or ongoing studies funded by the EC and national programmes. Specific objectives are to make inventories of birth cohorts, assure quality and interoperability of exposure, health ...
