Global trends in population growth and rising economic prosperity will increase the demand for energy, food and water, with more severe impact in fast-growing economies, such as in several African countries. The constraints on water, energy, and food could well hamper economic development, lead to social and geopolitical tensions, and cause lasting environmental damage. DAFNE advocates an integrat ...

Neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease, are a major public health issue given the aging population in Europe and beyond. While curative pharmacological treatment of these diseases is not in sight, cell replacement therapies (CTs) are considered very promising, in particular with the advent of stem-cell reprogramming technologies. However, a fundamental challenge in the medical app ...

Socialising Sensori-Motor Contingencies (socSMCs)

Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Dec 31, 2018,

As robots become more omnipresent in our society, we are facing the challenge of making them more socially competent. However, in order to safely and meaningfully cooperate with humans, robots must be able to interact in ways that humans find intuitive and understandable. Addressing this challenge, we propose a novel approach for understanding and modelling social behaviour and implementing social ...

According to the data from the Statistical Office of the European Union the unemployment rate in the euro area amounted 11.2% in February 2015. A massive problem remaining is the high youth unemployment rate from under 25 years-old persons. Most notably affected with rates over 50% are the crisis-shaken states Greece and Spain, as well as Italy and Portugal with youth unemployment rates over 40% o ...

Knowledge Transfer for Climate Change Adaptation (KNOW2ADAPT)

Start date: Jan 1, 2014, End date: May 1, 2017,

As a result of climate change, the frequency of floods and droughts is expected to increase in many European river basins. Adaptation measures are a top priority of the European Commission and are crucial for protecting populations, economies and ecosystems. This research will contribute to the challenges associated with climate change adaptation by questioning the transferability of relevant wate ...

Concept Invention Theory (COINVENT)

Start date: Oct 1, 2013, End date: Sep 30, 2016,

The capacity of combinational creativity---i.e., when novel ideas are produced through unfamiliar combinations of familiar ideas---is difficult to recreate computationally. In particular, it is a hard task for autonomous computational systems to tackle the combinatorial explosion of potential combinations, and to be capable of recognizing the value of newly created ideas (concepts, theories, solut ...

"The integration of information across different sensory channels is a fundamental problem that we have to solve in every moment of daily life. We will study four key aspects of multisensory processing that are currently unresolved: (1) the role of dynamic binding in multisensory experience; (2) the role of action and sensorimotor contingencies in multisensory processing; (3) the modulation of mul ...

A principal cause of failure in the treatment of cancer is that cancer cells develop resistance to chemo- and radiotherapy, leading to recurrence of the disease or even death. Sphingolipid molecules can modulate the ability of malignant cells to grow and resist anticancer regimens, with some molecules promoting tumorigenesis and others acting as tumor-suppressors. The tumor-suppressor activity of ...

Extending Sensorimotor Contingencies to Cognition (eSMCs)

Start date: Jan 1, 2011, End date: Dec 31, 2014,

Description The majority of current robot architectures is based on a perception-then-action control strategy. This project will adopt a theoretical perspective that turns this classical view upside-down and emphasizes the constitutive role of action for perception. The key concept of our project is based on that of sensorimotor contingencie ...

Light Scattering on Micro Structured Surface Coatings (Riblet Sensor)

Start date: Feb 1, 2012, End date: Jul 31, 2013,

The project aims to develop a preliminary configuration of an optical sensor that is able to detect sub-mum-degradations of microstructured coatings (e. g. riblets) with highest accuracy. The availability of such sensor is mandatory for the establishment of drag-reduction riblet structures on aircraft wings and/or body components. Any type of degradations of the riblet structure are unfavorable fo ...
