NANOARCHITECTRONICS

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 31-12-2018


'This FET-open Coordination and Support Action is called “Nanoarchitectronics” (NTX) to denote a new interdisciplinary research area at the crossroad of Electromagnetics and Nanoelectronics. NTX It is a new technology aimed at conceiving, designing and developing reconfigurable, adaptive and cognitive structures, sensorial surfaces and functional “skins” with unique physical properties, an...
CARBOMET
Metrology of Carbohydrates for Enabling European Bioindustries

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 30-12-2020


'CarboMet will foster and drive collaboration, cross-fertilisation and communication among stakeholders to facilitate a uniform approach to the metrology and/or measurement of carbohydrates for exploitation in biopharmaceuticals, diagnosis of disease and precision medicine, food and personal care and sustainable material BioIndustries. This will be achieved through a consolidated approach towards ...
MaQSens
Magnetomechanical Platforms for Quantum Experiments and Quantum Enabled Sensing Technologies

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 31-12-2019


This project seeks to establish a radically new technology platform for experiments in macroscopic quantum physics and for quantum enabled sensing. We exploit magnetic coupling between superconducting quantum circuits and superconducting mechanical resonators – both levitated and suspended – to enter a hitherto inaccessible parameter regime of both unprecedented force sensitivity and full quan...
FEMTOTERABYTE
Spinoptical nanoantenna-assisted magnetic storage at few nanometers on femtosecond timescale

Start Date: 01-03-2017

End Date: 29-02-2020


We will develop the conceptually new paradigm for ultra-dense and ultrafast magnetic storage that will exceed the current technology by two orders of magnitude in storage density (going from terabit/inch2 to tens of terabytes/inch2) and by about four orders of magnitude in operation speed (going from low GHz to THz for read/write). This will be achieved in an all-optical platform that allows deter...
TRANSPIRE
Terahertz RAdio communication using high ANistropy SPIn torque REsonators

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 31-12-2020


'Current and future technological and societal demands require the transfer of vast amounts of data at speeds currently not available due to a lack of technology operating in the terahertz (THz) gap. TRANSPIRE will develop nano-scale THz-oscillators based on a new class of magnetic materials, which will function in this exact range and meet these demands. This will enable new functionalities with...
ArrestAD
3-O-sulfated heparan sulfate translocation in altered membrane biology: A newstrategy for early population screening and halting Alzheimer’s neurodegeneration

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 31-12-2020


ArrestAD proposes a novel and visionary thinking resulting from the demonstration of the central role of a particular heparan sulfate species at the intracellular level in neurons and in circulating cells in the molecular pathology of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). AD is a societal challenge for which there is neither prevention nor possible cure. Research in the field has long been refining classic ...
ByAxon
Towards an active bypass for neural reconnection

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 31-12-2020


'ByAxon is devoted to the development of a new generation of sensors and electrodes based on nanotechnology materials for neural interfacing. We aim to design and build a prototype of an active implant that could work directly at the spinal cord (SC) level. This implant will be primary focused on restoring the transmission of electrical signals in the injured SC, acting as an active local bypass, ...

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 31-03-2021


'We envision a radical redesign of Earth observation platforms for sustained operation at significantly lower altitudes than the current state of the art, using a combination of new aerodynamic materials, aerodynamic control and air-breathing electric propulsion for drag-compensation, for a variety of observation methods with the aim of creating a new platform paradigm.This vision requires foundat...
One-Flow
Catalyst Cascade Reactions in ‘One-Flow’ within a Compartmentalized, Green-Solvent ‘Digital Synthesis Machinery’ – End-to-End Green Process Design for Pharmaceuticals

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 31-12-2020


ONE-FLOW translates ‘vertical hierarchy’ of chemical multistep synthesis with its complex machinery into self-organising ‘horizontal hierarchy’ of a compartmentalized flow reactor system – a biomimetic digital flow cascade machinery with just one reactor passage. To keep horizontal hierarchy manageable, orthogonality among the consecutive reactions needs to be increased. The winning poin...
