Stochastic Population Biology in a Fluctuating Environment
ID: 268562
Start date: 2011-05-01, End date: 2016-04-30
The aim of this project is to produce a new synthesis integrating ecological and evolutionary processes. This synthetic approach is based on the fundamental premise that the effects of environmental stochasticity are essential for the understanding of biological processes at ...

Start date: 2011-04-01, End date: 2016-03-31
The main research goal of this project is the quest for rigorous mathematical theory explaining the power and failure of heuristics. The incapability of current computational models to explain the success of heuristic algorithms in practical computing is the subject of wide d...

The medieval plagues: ecology, transmission modalities and routes of the infections
ID: 324249
Start date: 2013-06-01, End date: 2018-11-30
The history of late medieval and early modern Europe was deeply affected by epidemics of plague that repeatedly broke out until 1750 AD and caused devastation and death with severe social, political and economic consequences. For decades, historians and scientists have been i...

The Legitimacy of Multi-level Human Rights Judiciary
ID: 269841
Start date: 2011-06-01, End date: 2016-05-31
The proliferation of human rights treaties at regional and global levels may offer moral foundations for international law. However, many worry that this growth of supervisory organs is illegitimate. Consider, for instance • The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) is overb...

Microbial Network Organisation
[PROJECT] MINOS - Microbial Network Organisation
ID: 250254
Start date: 2010-06-01, End date: 2015-05-31
The project faces the problem of handling complexity in the microbial part of the marine pelagic food web. The basic idea is that there is a generic structure created by the interactions between three fundamental life strategies - competition, defense and predation/parasitism...

Plurals, Predicates, and Paradox: Towards a Type-Free Account
ID: 241098
Start date: 2010-01-01, End date: 2013-12-31
This project aims to transform our understanding of the logical paradoxes, their solution and significance for mathematics, philosophy and semantics. It seeks to show that some of the key inferences in the paradoxes should not uncritically be blocked, as is customary, but rat...

Neural circuits for space representation in the mammalian cortex
ID: 232608
Start date: 2009-01-01, End date: 2013-12-31
Neuroscience is one of the fastest-developing areas of science, but it is fair to say that we are still far from understanding how the brain produces subjective experience. For example, simple questions about the origin of thought, imagination, social interaction, or feelings...

Overlooked Unresolved Toxic Organic Pollutants: Resolution, Identification, Measurement and Toxicity:OUTREACH
ID: 228149
Start date: 2009-07-01, End date: 2014-12-31
Organic pollution exceeds an area greater than that of France+Germany. Toxic, persistent, unresolved and unidentified, complex mixtures (UCMs) of organic chemicals are abundant all over the globe. These UCMs, which encompass a number of chemical classes, are outside present E...

Interplay of genetic, nutrient and lifestyle factors on incidence of coronary disease: EPIC-Heart
ID: 268834
Start date: 2011-05-01, End date: 2017-04-30
A major new frontier in biomedicine is to identify interactions of specific components of nature and nurture in determining risk of complex diseases. Coronary heart disease (CHD) - the single leading cause of death in Europe - is jointly determined by genetic and lifestyle fa...
