Vancomycin is the critically important antibiotic to treat neonatal Late Onset Sepsis (LOS) due to Gram positive bacteria in neonates, including Coagulase Negative Staphylococci (CoNS) and Staphylococcus aureus. These organisms also create biofilms which are extremely resistant to antibiotics. The increased incidence of LOS due to bacteria such as CoNS and MRSA in NICUs has led to a marked increas ...

Quality Assurance for Essential Climate Variables (QA4ECV)

Start date: Sep 27, 2013, End date: Jan 1, 2018,

Policy makers are increasingly relying on Earth Observation (EO) data to make decisions on mitigating and adapting to climate change. These decisions need to be 'evidence-based' and this requires complete confidence in EO-derived products. Although EO data is plentiful, it is rare to have reliable, traceable and understandable quality information. The situation is often further confused because va ...

Complex wetting phenomena (COWET)

Start date: Jan 1, 2014, End date: Dec 31, 2017,

Static and dynamic wetting of solid surfaces by liquids is a focus of numerous theoretical, computational and experimental investigations. Most of the research and training activities are focused on the wetting of simple solids by one-component liquids. However, a wide variety of industrial processes mostly include wetting/spreading of complex multiphase liquids over heterogeneous, structured or ( ...

Regional climate-air quality interactions (REQUA)

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

"Air quality is strongly dependent on weather and is therefore sensitive to climate variability and climate change. On the other hand, air pollution affects the atmospheric composition which in turn affects the earth's radiative budget and the earth's climate. Hence the climate and the air quality are intimately interactive parts of the earth's system and the feedbacks between them can act to ampl ...

"Topological Solitons, from Field Theory to Cosmos" (TS)

Start date: Oct 1, 2013, End date: Sep 30, 2017,

"Nonlinear field theories, which possess soliton solutions as part of their energy spectrum, are of great interest in mathematical physics. A soliton is a finite-energy solution of a nonlinear partial differential equation, which is stabilized by a conserved charge associated with the field theory. The analysis of solitons necessitates a large expanse of mathematical techniques, often merging anal ...

Low Emissions Core-Engine Technologies (LEMCOTEC)

Start date: Oct 1, 2011, End date: Jun 30, 2017,

The main objective of the LEMCOTEC project will be the improvement of core-engine thermal efficiency by increasing the overall pressure ratio (OPR) to up to 70 leading to a further reduction of CO2. Since NOx increases with OPR, combustion technologies have to be further developed, at the same time, to at least compensate for this effect. The project will attain and exceed the ACARE targets for 20 ...
