Start Date: 01-10-2016

End Date: 31-03-2019


'Virtual Multimodal Museum (ViMM) proposes a major, high-impact CSA across the field of Virtual Museums (VM), within the overall context of European policy and practice on Virtual Cultural Heritage (VCH). A highly expert seven (7) partner consortium will leverage the support of a unique and powerful Advisory Group, consisting of many of the Europe and the world’s leading public and private sec...
WYRED
netWorked Youth Research for Empowerment in the Digital society

Start Date: 01-11-2016

End Date: 31-10-2019


'The emergence of the young as a distinct social group, and their slowly increasing empowerment through the availability of digital technology, has brought with it an understanding that they have a key role to play in the digital society, as drivers of new behaviours and understandings. However, their active participation in society is not reflected sufficiently in policy and decision-making, espe...
EUUSEHEALTHWORK
Mapping Skills and Competencies; Providing Access to Knowledge, Tools and Platforms; and Strengthening, Disseminating and Exploiting Success Outcomes for a Skilled Transatlantic eHealth Workforce

Start Date: 01-09-2016

End Date: 28-02-2018


The EU-US eHealth Workforce Development Consortium has an overall goal of mapping, quantifying and projecting the need, supply and demand for workforce skills and competences, utilising these results to further develop IT skills and training programmes for the healthcare workforce. This work is a continuation and further development of the EU-US collaboration under the EU-US MoU eHealth Roadmap, l...
MECHANO-CONTROL
Mechanical control of biological function

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 31-12-2021


Mechanical forces transmitted through specific molecular bonds drive biological function, and their understanding and control hold an uncharted potential in oncology, regenerative medicine and biomaterial design. However, this potential has not been realised, because it requires developing and integrating disparate technologies to measure and manipulate mechanical and adhesive properties from the ...
MAGENTA
MAGnetic nanoparticle based liquid ENergy materials for Thermoelectric device Applications

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 31-12-2021


MAGENTA proposes a brand new technological path in thermoelectric materials research for waste-heat recovery applications. The originality of the project is based on the newly discovered thermal-to-electric energy conversion capacity of ionic-liquids and ferrofluids; i.e., colloidal dispersions of magnetic nanoparticles in ionic liquids (IL-FFs). It is an inter-disciplinary and cross-sector R&D pr...
BrainCom
High-density cortical implants for cognitive neuroscience and rehabilitation of speech using brain-computer interfaces

Start Date: 01-12-2017

End Date: 30-11-2021


The goal of BrainCom is to develop a new generation of neuroprosthetic devices for large-scale and high density recording and stimulation of the human cortex, suitable to explore and repair high-level cognitive functions. Since one of the most invalidating neurospychological conditions is arguably the impossibility to communicate with others, BrainCom primarily focuses on the restoration of speech...

Opinion Dynamics and Cultural Conflict in European Spaces

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 31-12-2021


'Social media and the digitization of news and discussion fora are having far-reaching effects on the way individuals and communities communicate, organize, and express themselves. Can the information circulating on these platforms be tapped to better understand and analyze the enormous problems facing our contemporary society? Could this help us to better monitor the growing number of social cris...
Neurofibres
Biofunctionalised Electroconducting Microfibres for the Treatment of Spinal Cord Injury

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 31-12-2021


'Bio-electronic microsystems hold promise for repairing the damaged central nervous system (CNS). However, this potential has not been developed because their implantation inflicts additional neural injury, and ensuing inflammation and fibrosis compromise device functionality. In Neurofibres we want to achieve a breakthrough in “Neuroregenerative Bio-electronics”, developing dual-function devi...
A-LEAF
An Artificial Leaf: a photo-electro-catalytic cell from earth-abundant materials for sustainable solar production of CO2-based chemicals and fuels

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 31-12-2021


'A novel concept for a photo-electro-catalytic (PEC) cell able to directly convert water and CO2 into fuels and chemicals (CO2 reduction) and oxygen (water oxidation) using exclusively solar energy will be designed, built, validated, and optimized. The cell will be constructed from cheap multifunction photo-electrodes able to transform sun irradiation into an electrochemical potential difference (...
HOT
Hybrid Optomechanical Technologies

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 31-12-2021


The hybrid optomechanical technologies (HOT) consortium will lay the foundation for a new generation of devices, which connect, or indeed contain, several platforms at the nanoscale in a single “hybrid” system. As hybrid interfaces they will allow to harness the unique advantages of each subsystem within a nano-scale footprint, while as integrated hybrid devices they will enable entirely novel...
