European Prevention of Alzheimer’s Dementia Consortium (EPAD)

Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Dec 31, 2019,

Background:The secondary prevention of Alzheimer’s dementia (AD) is achievable if we can identify individuals at risk of disease progression defined by biomarker evidence of AD pathology and no or only minimal clinical symptoms and engage them in a standing adaptive clinical trial, of the highest quality, testing multiple interventions. To achieve this, EPAD will also provide the analytical infras ...

Reinforced Vegetation Numerical Evaluation of Slopes (REVENUES)

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

Vegetation acts as a reinforcement for slopes due to the penetration of roots into the ground. Roots penetration is a time dependent phenomenon that is strongly connected to the hydrogeological condition of the slope and that interacts with soil properties. Roots reinforcement of soil is well documented and numerous formulae exist in literature. The reinforcement action is provided by roots penetr ...

Development of a novel method for rodent control (PIEDPIPERDA)

Start date: Dec 1, 2014, End date: May 31, 2016,

The Piedpiper project (funded under the FP7-SME2011scheme) started in December 2011 with its aim being to transform the Pest Control industry. To date it has developed (ahead of schedule) a new transdermal toxin and a new Pest Control Device using an aerosol to deliver the toxin.With the EU ban on warfarins due to take effect in 2014 we believe that this project is not just viable but essential to ...

Multiscale Modelling of Landslides and Debris Flows (MUMOLADE)

Start date: Jan 1, 2012, End date: Dec 31, 2015,

"Landslides and debris flows are serious geo-hazards common to countries with mountainous terrains. The high speed and the enormity of debris mass make debris flows one of the most dangerous natural hazards. Debris flows are often triggered by landslides partially or completely mobilizing into debris flows. Globally, landslides cause billions of dollars in damage and thousands of deaths and injuri ...

"European oceans will be subject to massive development of marine infrastructure in the near future. The most obvious is the energy facilities e.g. offshore wind farms, exploitation of wave energy, expansion of electricity connections, and also further development and implementation of marine aquaculture. This will also lead to an increased need for marine infrastructure to support installation an ...

EERA Design Tools for Offshore Wind Farm Cluster (EERA-DTOC)

Start date: Jan 1, 2012, End date: Jun 30, 2015,

The European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) together with some high-impact industry partners addresses the call proposing an integrated and validated design tool combining the state-of-the-art wake, yield and electrical models available in the consortium, as a plug-in architecture with possibility for third party models. To decrease uncertainties around wind farm wake predictions, a small measur ...

Climate change - Learning from the past climate (Past4Future)

Start date: Jan 1, 2010, End date: Dec 31, 2014,

Past4Future will combine multidisciplinary paleoclimate records from ice cores, marine cores, speleothems, pollen and other records, concentrating on a global distribution of the records, to reconstruct climate change and variability during the present interglacial (the Holocene) and the last interglacial (known as the Eemian in northwestern Europe and as marine isotope stage 5e in the marine sedi ...

Future Deep Sea Wind Turbine Technologies (DeepWind)

Start date: Oct 1, 2010, End date: Sep 30, 2014,

The hypothesis of this project is that a new wind turbine concept developed specifically for offshore application has potentials for better cost efficiency than existing offshore technology. Based on this hypothesis the objectives are: i)to explore the technologies needed for development of a new and simple floating offshore concept with a vertical axis rotor and a floating and rotating foundation ...

Towards Zero Waste in Industrial Networks (ZeroWIN)

Start date: May 1, 2009, End date: Apr 30, 2014,

The first work package will define a common vision on zero-waste entrepreneurship within the first 6 months. The mythos Individual Producer Responsibility will be investigated if it can become the all-healing-solution in electronics industry as well as how this concept can be applied to other industrial sectors. WP2 concentrates on new technological developments, WP3 on waste prevention methodolog ...

"As pointed out in the White paper for European transport the aim of the European rail operators is to increase the market share of goods traffic from 8 % in 2001 to 15 % in 2020. The nightly time slots will play an important in this. Railway vibration annoyance and sleep disturbance in residential areas is a potential show stopper for this increase.Therefore the aim of Cargovibes is to develop a ...

Piedpiper (PIEDPIPER)

Start date: Dec 1, 2011, End date: Nov 30, 2013,

Rodents have always been a risk to mankind. Rats and mice carry over 70 diseases that can be transmitted to humans, they also cause economic damage to crops, buildings and infrastructure that runs into billions of Euro’s per year. The rat population of the world is expanding rapidly and our current control systems are just not effective. All of the current electro mechanical devices have a carbon ...

"The overarching aim of the PARDEM project is to provide high quality training to a group of young researchers to work within and to further develop the multidisciplinary field of DEM computational simulation of granular processes. Granular materials are estimated to constitute over 75% of all raw material feedstock to industry. They also present many challenges for innovation and fundamental scie ...

"Low input farming occurs under non-SPF (specific pathogen free) conditions. The European ban on in-feed antibiotics exposes the piglets to a higher microbial environmental pressure. The postnatal priming of piglets with a diverse microbiota may affect the development of the piglet’s host-defense and gut functionality. By reversal, the piglets developing host-defense may affect the development of ...

Human life and the entire ecosystem of South East Asia depend upon the monsoon climate and its predictability. More than 40% of the earth's population lives in this region. Droughts and floods associated with the variability of rainfall frequently cause serious damage to ecosystems in these regions and, more importantly, injury and loss of human life. The headwater areas of seven major rivers in S ...

"Developing countries are reluctant to make any binding commitment as their per capita emissions are low and climate abatement measures conflict with their main priorities on socio-economic development. The question is if there is a way to simultaneously provide sufficient energy (which is also the main source of GHG emissions), to support poverty alleviation and economic growth and achieve suffic ...

HYBRID INFORMATION PROCESSING (HIP)

Start date: Nov 1, 2008, End date: Apr 30, 2012,

Scaling quantum information processors beyond the present small-scale devices is challenging as communication between parts of the processor, single site addressability and scaling are dificult to reconcile. HIP addresses these issues with the experimental realization of elementary hybrid atom-photon devices, and the theoretical development of schemes for their integration on platforms capable of ...
