Galaxy formation through the eyes of globular clusters (CLUSTERS)

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

"Globular clusters (GCs) are among the first baryonic structures to form at a redshift of 10 and they witnessed the earliest phases of galaxy formation. Despite their ubiquity and importance for our understanding of the stellar initial mass function, star formation and chemical evolution in the early Universe, their origin is shrouded in mystery. They could have formed in gas rich discs, similarl ...

Productivity, Non-Tariff Measures and Openness (PRONTO)

Start date: Feb 1, 2014, End date: Jan 31, 2018,

The latter half of the 20th century saw a successful international effort to reduce tariffs. These achievements, however, were undone by the subsequent proliferation of non-tariff measures (NTMs) to limit international trade and investment. These measures take a variety of forms and include safety regulations, environmental standards, and corporate tax incentives, all of which influence both trade ...
