Protein misfolding in neurodegeneration
Age-related disorders are on the rise with increasing life expectancy. Understanding the pathology and the underlying mechanisms of these conditions is crucial for finding effective therapies.
A network for neural engineering training
The combined strengths, teamwork and infrastructures of a multidisciplinary training network in neural engineering are fostering a level of innovation impossible in isolation. The effort will establish a global leadership position for the EU in an emerging industrial field.
Advancing knowledge of human and early development
Cutting-edge research in early social development can lead to a better understanding of human development overall. An EU initiative has gathered academia and industry to explore how infants interact with their environment.
How fish are connected in the Mediterranean
Marine protected areas (MPAs) are a valuable tool for conserving marine biodiversity and resources whose benefits can be increased by their integration into a network. The correct design of these networks is crucial to their success and connecting fish populations through larv...
Understanding coastal water flows
Successful sustainable development of Europe's coastal regions depends on the proper management of ecological resources, which will help protect against the impacts of human activities and climate change. This requires a detailed understanding of the horizontal transport and m...
Switching radio halos on
Giant radio halos are one of the most spectacular and less understood non-thermal emissions from galaxy clusters. Their origin is believed to be relativistic electrons accelerated during mergers between clusters, a scenario examined by EU-funded astronomers.
