Final Report Summary - BRIDGES (Bridging Non-Equilibrium Problems: From the Fourier Law to Gene Expression)
There is, seemingly, a big gap between the language of mathematics, and the questions in humanities and biology. The aim of this ERC project was to work towards a possible connection between these two realms. Within the limits of time, this project has contributed to progress...

Final Report Summary - MERESPO (Mechanically Responsive Polymers)
Polymers which change their properties “on command”, that is upon exposure to a pre-defined stimulus in a selective manner, are of considerable academic interest and attractive for countless technologically relevant applications. Many examples of chemically, thermally...

Final Report Summary - FLOODCHANGE (Deciphering River Flood Change)
The main objectives of this project were to understand how changes in land use and climate translate into changes in river floods, what are the factors controlling this relationship and what are the uncertainties involved. We compiled a flood data base of more than 5000 river...

Final Report Summary - WAVETOMO (Imaging earth's internal structure using full waveform tomography)
Seismic tomography of the earth's mantle traditionally relies on measurements of travel times of a small number of seismic waves, those that are well separated from others in seismic records. This limits the sharpness of the resulting images, since the distribution of natural...

Final Report Summary - PHASENANOCRACKER (The Metallurgical Nutcracker: Probing at the Nanoscale the Structure and Properties of Hard Second Phases in Alloys and Composites)
Many metallic materials (cast iron, tool steel and aluminium casting alloys are examples) combine a ductile matrix of a metal such as aluminium or iron, with a significant volume fraction of hard "second" phases, which are often non-metallic carbides, oxides or silicon. These...
