Reassessing Ageing from a Population Perspective
ID: 323947
Start date: 2013-04-01, End date: 2019-03-31
Life expectancies in the EU have increased significantly over the past decades and are expected to continue increasing. Age-specific health statuses have also generally been improving. In contrast to these profound changes, the concepts that demographers have used to analyze ...

Plasmonics-based Energy Harvesting for Catalysis
ID: 280064
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Many critical photochemical and photophysical processes, from photosynthesis in plants, to photocatalytic reactions, and to generation of electricity in solar cells, depend on an efficient light-matter interaction. In order to increase, for example, the efficiency of photocat...

Arithmetic and physics of Higgs moduli spaces
ID: 320593
Start date: 2013-04-01, End date: 2018-08-31
The proposal studies problems concerning the geometry and topology of moduli spaces of Higgs bundles on a Riemann surface motivated by parallel considerations in number theory and mathematical physics. In this way the proposal bridges various duality theories in string theory...

Cryogenic Traps for Entanglement Research with Ions
ID: 227959
Start date: 2008-12-01, End date: 2013-11-30
Quantum computers offer a fundamentally new way of information processing. Within the scope of this proposal, quantum information processing with an ion trap quantum computer will be investigated. With the new combination of cryogenic technology and ion traps for quantum comp...

RNA directed DNA elimination in Tetrahymena
ID: 204986
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-12-31
Tetrahymena eliminates micronuclear-limited sequences from the developing macronucleus during sexual reproduction (DNA elimination). It is believed that the DNA to be eliminated is identified by their homology with ~28 nt small RNAs (scnRNAs) which are made by a RNAi-related ...

Microbial Ecology of the DEep Atlantic pelagic realm
ID: 268595
Start date: 2011-07-01, End date: 2016-06-30
The project aims at elucidating a major enigma in microbial ecology, i.e., the metabolic activity of prokaryotic communities in the deep sea under in situ pressure conditions, rather than under surface pressure conditions, as commonly done. Analysis of the global data set of ...

Quantitative Reactive Modeling
[PROJECT] QUAREM - Quantitative Reactive Modeling
ID: 267989
Start date: 2011-05-01, End date: 2016-04-30
The project aims to build and evaluate a theory of quantitative fitness measures for reactive models. Such a theory must strive to obtain quantitative generalizations of the paradigms that have been success stories in qualitative reactive modeling, such as compositionality, p...

Origins of the Vernacular Mode. Regional Identities and European Networks in Late Medieval Europe
ID: 263672
Start date: 2011-04-01, End date: 2017-03-31
Based on comparative studies and contextualisations of European vernacular religious literatures, this project aims at new insights about the dynamics of regional ( vernacular ) identity formation in the 14th and 15th centuries. The investigation will focus on intellectual el...

Active and low loss nano photonics (ActiveNP)
ID: 257158
Start date: 2010-10-01, End date: 2015-09-30
This project aims at designing novel hybrid nanophotonic devices comprising metallic nanostructures and active elements such as dye molecules or colloidal quantum dots. Three core objectives, each going far beyond the state of the art, shall be tackled: (i) Metamaterials cont...

Multiscale poro-micromechanics of bone materials, with links to biology and medicine
ID: 257023
Start date: 2010-11-01, End date: 2015-10-31
"Modern computational engineering science allows for reliable design of the most breathtaking high-rise buildings, but it has hardly entered the fracture risk assessment of biological structures like bones. Is it only an engineering scientist's dream to decipher mathematicall...
