Combatting Bacterial Resistance in Europe (COMBACTE-NET)

Start date: Jan 1, 2013, End date: Dec 31, 2019,

The emergence of Antibiotic-resistant bacteria (ARB) is a global problem, having recently been elevated to the top three threats identified by the World Health Organisation (WHO), and subject of numerous national and international government activities, including the Trans-Atlantic Task Force on Antimicrobial Resistance established by the US and EU presidencies. The estimated costs of ARB are aro ...

More than 14 million Europeans suffer from heart failure (HF), of which more than 50 % have HF with preserved left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (EF) (HFPEF, “diastolic heart failure”). HFPEF is the only cardiovascular disease with increasing prevalence and incidence, affecting 10-20% of the elderly and contributing substantially to hospitalizations of elderly HF patients. Currently, no medic ...

Vascular Endothelial interactionS and SpEciaLization (Vessel)

Start date: Jan 1, 2013, End date: Dec 31, 2016,

The vascular network plays essential roles in animal biology. Local disruption or impaired function of the vascular network is known to cause various pathological conditions, such as ischemic heart disease and stroke. The angiogenic growth of blood vessels is critically required during development, growth and regeneration, but it can also promote the growth of cancer cells and contribute to diabet ...

"Recently, research in astrophysics has yielded amazing new insight in the origin, evolution and structure of the Universe, and fundamental processes governing this highly dynamical system. Most of this progress was achieved thanks to the availability of extremely sensitive detectors. Common features for such detectors are extremely low noise and very small background, and the main solutions for a ...

Reducing the Vulnerability of Space Systems (ReVuS)

Start date: Mar 1, 2011, End date: Dec 31, 2013,

It is accepted that space debris will increase in the nextdecades despite any considerable effort made to limit their generation.Debris of more than 10cm can be avoided by the satellites and also thevery small particles of less than 0.1cm are taken into account in thecurrent designs. The debris from 0.1 to 10cm is however not predictable,not taken into account today and could severely damage a spa ...
