Project Value 195,455
Project Detail

Large scale antenna array (LSAA) has been introduced into 5G cellular networks to address the capacity crunch indoors. LSAAs will increase the physical dimension of the base station (BS), generating negative consequences on weight, wind load and visual impact. A potential solution of deploying LSAA indoors is to embed it into building structures, e.g., concrete walls. However, how the concrete impacts the wireless performance of concrete embedded antenna array (CEAA) has not been well studied. In this project, we will investigate how the electromagnetic (EM) properties of concrete will impact the wireless performance of CEAAs, and how to design and optimise the building properties of concrete to achieve both desirable mechanical and wireless performance. First, we will define metrics so that the wireless performance of CEAA can be measured. EM properties of concrete and the inhomogeneity of EM properties will be taken into account. Then, we will establish the relationship between the ratio and layout of admixtures and the EM properties of concrete. Three simplified concrete model, i.e., multilayer, lattice and 3D Poisson point process (PPP) models, will be proposed and verified through simulations and measurements. Finally, we will design concrete with desirable EM properties by changing the ratio and layout of admixtures under the constraint of mechanical performance to obtain an optimal wireless performance. After the completion of this project, we will be able tell how to optimize wireless performance of concrete under the constraint of its mechanical performance for typical building structures.

Project Detail

Water-related stress is the number one limiting factor for plant productivity and human well-being. One-third of the current world population faces water shortages and by 2025, two-thirds are expected to experience water stress conditions, i.e 1.8 billion people will be subjected to absolute water scarcity. The C4 photosynthetic pathway boosts plant productivity by ~50% but also increases water use efficiency. C4 photosynthesis is a remarkable trait that is thought to have evolved in response to environmental factors including increased aridity and seasonality. All C4 plants concentrate CO2 in leaves, increasing productivity by ~50%, but also maintaining lower stomatal conductance than C3 species. For example, under heat stress induced by a temperature rise from 20°C to 30°C, C3 plants double water loss via transpiration whilst C4 plants are able to decrease the diffusive efflux of water vapour by 50%, and are therefore considered as water-efficient users. A fuller understanding of C4 photosynthesis would facilitate water efficient and productive crops to be engineered in the future. In this programme the researcher will become familiar with state-of-the-art, genome-wide approaches that are used and operational in the host laboratory to better understand the genetic basis of C4 photosynthesis. Specifically regions of the rice and sorghum genomes that are bound by transcription factors as leaves develop will be determined. These data will be interrogated to test the hypothesis that genes of the C4 pathway evolved to become induced by light in C4 leaves. Secondly, transcription factor footprints associated with genes expressed in M or BS cells of sorghum will be identified. These footprints (DNA sequences) will test the hypothesis that multiple genes preferentially expressed in M or BS cells are regulated by the same cis-elements.

As per the Auto Fuel Quality Vision Policy 2025 and communication by MoP&NG on 22nd May’15, it has been directed to implement BS-VI grade fuel in the entire country w.e.f. 1st April 2020. For sustaining the operations of Mathura Refinery, the existing facilities must be upgraded to generate BS-VI grade fuels from 2020 onwards. The proposed project is for the Quality Improvement Project (QIP) from BS-IV to BS-VI grade at the same crude processing capacity of?MMTPA to reduce sulphur content to 10 ppm without increasing the production capacities in the existing refinery. However, there will be only minor modification of few processes in the existing refinery.

Project Value 165,599
Project Detail

The LHCb experiment at CERN was created in order to investigate decays of beauty and charm mesons produced in the proton collisions of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Through measurements of the observables in such decays, for example amplitudes and phases in the angular distributions of decay products, the effects of New Physics can be discovered. Disproving the Standard Model (SM) predictions through so-called flavour observables is an exciting approach to discover the answers to the questions the SM cannot solve, such as the source of the matter-antimatter differences necessary for our existence. The large backgrounds present in proton-proton collisions mean that large quantities of data must be processed, for example if all events were kept from the nominal LHCb luminosity, this would equate to ~50PB of raw data. The TNT project will enhance the physics abilities of the LHCb experiment, and will also dictate the future direction of Big Data analytics in High Energy Physics. The first two goals of this TNT project involve two new analyses of b?s transitions decaying to neutral particles, namely Bd?K*(?KSp0)µµ and Bs???, that provide complementary experimental inputs to New Physics searches. The study of these transitions will expand the physics case for the LHCb experiment and will involve the creation of new collaboration tools for the optimisation of all analyses with a single neutral particle. The third and final goal of the TNT project aims to optimise the LHCb data processing model through the extensive use of real-time analysis. Building on the success in 2015 and 2016 of the Turbo stream, allowing physics analyses to be performed with the LHCb trigger event reconstruction, the extension of this principle to flexibly save any required part of the event will transform the data processing model, permit all LHCb analyses to be performed in real time.

COmpetitive Methods to protect local Public Administration from Cyber security Threats
Company Name ENGINEERING - INGEGNERIA INFORMATICA SPA
Funded By European union
Country Italy , Western Europe
Project Value 4 Million
Project Detail

Cyber threats are the most significant and growing risk for public administrations (PA). However, technological, organisational and structural issues hamper the ability, especially for local PAs (LPAs) to improve their cyber security level. Budget constraints and evolving legal, ethical, societal and privacy regulations render the situation even more complex. COMPACT’s goal is to empower local LPAs to become the main actors of their cyber-resilience improvement process. COMPACT’s objectives are to 1) increase awareness, skills and protection; 2) foster information exchange between European LPAs; 3) link LPAs to major EU initiatives, including the newly created cyber-security private-public partnership. COMPACT innovates at technological level and at process level – an important dimension in engaging LPA employees in the improvement of cyber-resilience. At technological level, COMPACT innovates in real time security monitoring, security awareness training, information sharing, cyber-security gamification, risk assessment, and threat intelligence. At process level, COMPACT adapts the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle for LPAs to do iterative removal of security bottlenecks and achieve compliance to EN ISO/IEC 27001 and BS ISO/IEC 27005. COMPACT delivers an integrated platform with 4 types of tools/services – 1) risk assessment, 2) education, 3) monitoring, and 4) knowledge sharing – characterized by a high degree of usability by non IT experts and automation. It protects LPAs’ investments by interoperating with market solutions from major vendors. It eases deployment and adoption by being both cloud-enabled (i.e. it addresses cloud specific issues) and cloud-ready (i.e. it can be deployed – if users wish– on the cloud). COMPACT validates its results through 5 challenging use cases provided by 5 users in 4 European countries. 90% of COMPACT solutions will achieve TRL7 and the residual part TRL6.

Project Detail

The objective of the Climate Smart Agriculture Project for Kenya is to increase agricultural productivity and build resilience to climate change risks in the targeted smallholder farming and pastoral communities in Kenya, and in the event of an Eligible Crisis or Emergency, to provide immediate and effective response. There are five components to the project, the first component being upscaling climate smart agricultural practices. This component will finance interventions that promote and facilitate the adoption of TIMPs to achieve the CSA triple-wins of increased productivity, enhanced resilience (adaptation), and reduced GHG emissions (mitigation) per unit of output (as co-benefits). The second component is the strengthening climate-smart agricultural research and seed systems. This component will support the development, validation, and adoption of context specific CSA TIMPS to target beneficiaries under components one and three and also develop sustainable seed production and distribution systems. The third component is the supporting agro-weather, market, climate, and advisory services. This component will finance the development of agro-weather forecasting and marketing information system and their dissemination tools through three subcomponents: improving agrometeorological forecasting and monitoring; using big data to develop a climate-smart, agro weather and market information system and advisories; and building institutional and technical capacity for agro-meteorological observation and forecasting, agricultural statistics collection and analyses, and market advisory services. The fourth component is the project coordination and management. This component will finance activities related to national and county-level project coordination and management, including developing annual work plans and budgets (AWP&Bs), fiduciary aspects (financial management and pr
