Imaging the Event Horizon of Black Holes
[PROJECT] BLACKHOLECAM - Imaging the Event Horizon of Black Holes
ID: 610058
Start date: 2014-10-01, End date: 2020-09-30
Gravity is successfully described by Einstein’s theory of general relativity (GR), governing the structure of our entire universe. Yet it remains the least understood of all forces in nature, resisting unification with quantum physics. One of the most fundamental predictions ...

Rome's Mediterranean Ports
[PROJECT] ROMP - Rome's Mediterranean Ports
ID: 339123
Start date: 2014-02-01, End date: 2019-01-31
Rome was connected to its Mediterranean provinces by commercial routes articulated through networks of ports acting as poly-functional nodes. Ships, people and goods moved along these, drawing the micro-regions of the Mediterranean into closer economic and commercial relation...

Fundamental Aspects of Strings and Gravity
[PROJECT] STRINGS&GRAVITY - Fundamental Aspects of Strings and Gravity
ID: 320045
Start date: 2013-04-01, End date: 2019-03-31
The proposed ERC Advanced Grant “Strings&Gravity” is centered around string theory as a consistent theory of quantum gravity in the context of particle physics and cosmology. We are addressing several ground breaking and highly innovative questions about the structure of spac...

Science and technology development for in situ detection and cjharacterization of subsurface life on the Iberian Pyritic Belt
ID: 250350
Start date: 2010-06-01, End date: 2015-05-31
Terrestrial subsurface geomicrobiology is a matter of growing interest on many level. From a fundamental point of view, it seeks to determine wheter life can be sustained in the absence of radiation. From an astrobiological point of view, it is an interesting model for early ...

Non-Commutative Distributions in Free Probability
ID: 339760
Start date: 2014-02-01, End date: 2019-01-31
"We intend to study new directions in free probability theory with high potential to lead to breakthroughs in our understanding of random matrix models and operator algebras. We will drive forward the study of ""free analysis"" which is intended to provide a whole new mathema...

The other side of optogenetics: multicolored genetically encoded hybrid voltage sensors (GEVOS) for ultrafast membrane potential measurements in cortical microcircuits
ID: 339620
Start date: 2014-02-01, End date: 2019-01-31
Optogenetics are used to activate or silence specific sets of neurons, intracellular signaling pathways, or to examine brain structure at an unprecedented detail. The only optogenetic approach lagging behind all others is the genetically encoded optical monitoring of multi-ne...

Repression and the Escalation of Conflict
ID: 336019
Start date: 2014-02-01, End date: 2019-01-31
The objective of this project is to uncover and explain the escalation and non-escalation of repression and intra-state armed conflict by analyzing how characteristics of the government and its formal and informal security apparatus shape the dynamics of such violence, paying...

Identifying the immune and microbial network controlling the IL-22 – IL-22bp axis to open the doors for targeted therapies
ID: 337251
Start date: 2014-01-01, End date: 2018-12-31
Chronic mucosal inflammation and tissue damage predisposes patients to the development of colorectal cancer. One hypothesis is that the same factors important for wound healing, if left unchecked, also promote tumorigenesis. Tight control by a sensor of tissue damage should i...
