Impacts of Environmental Conditions on Seed Quality (EcoSeed)

Start date: 01 Jan 2013, End date: 31 Dec 2016,

"Seed quality is of paramount importance to agriculture, food security and the conservation of wild species. Considerable economic losses result from sub-optimal seed performance, undermining food security and livelihoods. Seed quality is strongly influenced by the environmental stresses experienced by the mother plant. Climate change will further exacerbate economic losses and decrease the predic ...

Smart Power ICs are extensively used in automotive embedded systems due to their unique capabilities to merge low power and high voltage devices on the same chip, at competitive cost. In such devices, induced electrical coupling noise due to switching of the power stages, when integrating such high voltage (HV) devices with low voltage (LV) functions, is a big issue. During switching, parasitic vo ...

Ocean Strategic Services beyond 2015 (OSS2015)

Start date: 01 Nov 2011, End date: 31 Oct 2014,

"The first level of GMES applications in the marine area is mostly represented by the ""upstream"" services of the MCS (e.g. MyOcean). Unfortunately, the current MyOcean offering of products and services for biogeochemistry has limitations that prevent a full uptake by the potential users. The present project proposes to address these issues through a range of R&D activities designed to offer a se ...
