QUantitative paleoEnvironments from SpeleoThems (QUEST)

Start date: Jan 1, 2016, End date: Dec 31, 2019,

Speleothems (cave deposits, e.g. stalagmites) represent unique terrestrial archives that allow for accurately dated, high-resolution (often annual), continuous and long (many millennia) climate reconstructions. Such records are vital for understanding how climate varies and how our environments respond on seasonal to millennial timescales. However, current speleothem studies can only make qualitat ...

The share of renewable energy is growing rapidly driven by the objective to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The amount of electric power which can be supplied to the grid depends on the time of the day and weather conditions. A conventional fleet of thermal power plants is required to compensate for these fluctuations before large scale energy storage technologies will be mature and economically ...

Kinetics for Drug Discovery (K4DD) (K4DD)

Start date: Nov 1, 2012, End date: Oct 31, 2017,

There is mounting evidence that the often ignored kinetic aspects of the interaction between a drug and its target are highly relevant for clinical success. This ignorance may be one of the reasons for the high attrition rates in drug discovery, as it has been analyzed that many recently marketed drugs had indeed improved kinetic profiles. This hindsight knowledge needs to be converted into data-d ...
