Effects of phosphorus limitations on Life, Earth system and Society
ID: 610028
Start date: 2014-09-01, End date: 2020-08-31
P is an earthbound and finite element and the prospect of constrained access to mineable P resources has already triggered geopolitical disputes. In contrast to P, availabilities of carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) to ecosystems are rapidly increasing in most areas of the globe. T...

Ultracold Quantum Matter
[PROJECT] UQUAM - Ultracold Quantum Matter
ID: 319278
Start date: 2013-07-01, End date: 2019-06-30
Quantum mechanics is the basis of our understanding of the microscopic world. It is also central to the collective behaviour of matter at low temperatures, leading to unique properties that defy our classical intuition. The comprehension of such ‘quantum matter’ and the abili...

Systematic investigation of epistasis in molecular evolution
ID: 335980
Start date: 2014-01-01, End date: 2018-12-31
Why does a mutation have a deleterious effect when it occurs in one species but shows no apparent consequences on the phenotype when it occurs in another species? What are some of possible explanations on the molecular basis of this phenomenon? Are the computational predictio...

Neuromodulation of Oxygen Chemosensory Circuits in Caenorhabditis elegans
ID: 281869
Start date: 2012-01-01, End date: 2017-06-30
An animal’s decision on how to respond to the environment is based not only on the sensory information available, but further depends on internal factors such as stress, sleep / wakefulness, hunger / satiety and experience. Neurotransmitters and neuropeptides in the brain mod...

Life Long Learning for Visual Scene Understanding (L3ViSU)
ID: 308036
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2018-06-30
"My goal in the project is to develop and analyze algorithms that use continuous, open-ended machine learning from visual input data (images and videos) in order to interpret visual scenes on a level comparable to humans. L3ViSU is based on the hypothesis that we can only sig...

Nanofiber Quantum Networks
[PROJECT] NANOQUANT - Nanofiber Quantum Networks
ID: 616920
Start date: 2014-06-01, End date: 2019-05-31
We propose to establish nanofiber-based atom-light interfaces as quantum-enabled fiber-optical components for quantum information processing and communication (QIPC). The key ingredient of this interface is a nanofiber-based optical dipole trap which stores laser-cooled atoms...

Non Equilibrium Dynamics and Relaxation in Many Body Quantum Systems
ID: 320975
Start date: 2013-06-01, End date: 2018-05-31
Relaxation processes in many-body quantum systems arise in many diverse areas of physics ranging from inflation in the early universe to the emergence of classical properties in complex quantum systems. Ultracold atoms provide a unique opportunity for studying non-equilibrium...

Simulation of the Kinetics and Inverse Problem
for the Protein PolymERization
in Amyloid Diseases (Prion, Alzheimer’s)
ID: 306321
Start date: 2012-12-01, End date: 2018-07-31
Amyloid diseases are of increasing concern in our aging society. These diseases all involve the aggregation of misfolded proteins, called amyloid, which are specific for each disease (PrP for Prion, Abeta for Alzheimer's). When misfolded these proteins propagate the abnormal ...

Transformation optics: cloaking, perfect imaging and horizons
ID: 320034
Start date: 2013-03-01, End date: 2018-02-28
Transformation optics grew out of ideas for invisibility cloaking devices and exploits connections between electromagnetism in media and in geometries. Invisibility has turned from fiction into science since 2006, but is far from being practical yet. Advances in the theory of...

Gendered  dimensions in ERC grant selection – gendERC
ID: 610706
Start date: 2014-04-01, End date: 2016-02-29
The project will analyze the ERC practices and processes in the contect of gender mainstreaming especially during submission of proposals and in peer review processes. The main objective of this project is to identify and analyze gender biases related to different stages of t...
