A breakthrough high resolution, real-time, industrial molecular analyser for advanced process control and energy optimization
Company Name OPTIQGAIN LTD
Funded By 38
Country Israel , Western Asia
Project Value 3 Million
Project Detail

Existing industrial process analysis procedures demand large quantities of energy and expensive resources as a result of ineffective and insensitive equipment. optiQGain after analysing the existing Scattered Raman Specroscopy (SRS) technologies in the fields of academia and research decided to create the SRSensor; a break-through, real-time, lightweight, cost effective, IoT based, on-site system for high resolution commercial molecular level analysis. The SRSensor, comprised of a range of probes and a main CPU unit, utilises a SRS spectrophotometer which produces a high resolution Raman spectrum in 0.1 seconds. The data is then transferred via fiber optic cables to the main CPU for data processing and presentation to the engineer or process manager. The highly accurate molecular analysis results can be adopted in a vast range of process analysis fields to optimise industrial processes, offer high resource efficiency, and huge cost savings resulting from lower maintenance costs and potential avoidance of unexpected engine, turbine, and generator failure. optiQgain will initially target Natural Gas and Biogas processing plants, turbines and gas transporting grid (pipelines), where industry demand and potential savings are substantial since many players in this industry are actively seeking new innovative technologies for sustainable success, as part of the intensively evolving Industrial I.o.T revolution. Within the overall innovation project, optiQgain aims to upgrade subcomponents of the sensor and finalise the industrial design of the SRSensor system for improved accuracy; transfer the production to a secured third party contract manufacture; optimise the process for adoption in Natural Gas and Biogas plants and gas turbines and pipelines; perform a quality demonstration and validation of the SRS technology at different site locations and develop a sound commercialisation and market strategy.

Reactive Transport and Mixing in Heterogeneous Media: Chemical Random Walks under Local Non-equilibrium
Company Name UNIVERSITE DE RENNES I
Funded By 38
Country France , Western Europe
Project Value 184,708
Project Detail

Understanding and modelling reactive transport in porous media is fundamental to predicting field-scale biogeochemical reactions, which play a key role in current environmental issues such as water resources management and carbon dioxide sequestration. A major scientific challenge is to capture the dynamics of coupled solute mixing and reaction processes in the context of multiscale heterogeneity, which characterise most natural porous media. In particular, the impact of pore-scale mixing on large- (Darcy-)scale reactive transport is a critical scientific question. ChemicalWalks addresses this question by coupling for the first time the lamella theory of mixing, developed by the host supervisor, and the chemical CTRW model for reaction kinetics under incomplete mixing, recently developed by the ER. While the lamella theory has successfully quantified mixing processes and fluid-fluid reactions at pore scale, its application to fluid-solid reactions, which are ubiquitous in natural systems, remains to be explored. The key idea of ChemicalWalks is to use the lamella theory to determine how pore-scale concentration distributions control the distribution of fluid-solid reaction rates, and formalize a predictive theory for upscaled reaction kinetics through the chemical CTRW framework (WP1). The complementary expertise of the researcher and the host will ensure a particularly efficient two-way transfer of knowledge to achieve this goal. This will open the door to the development of a hybrid computational method, quantifying the effect of pore-scale mixing on Darcy-scale reactive transport phenomena at a scale relevant to environmental applications (WP2). ChemicalWalks will be firmly rooted on a career development plan and supported by scientific training in state-of-the-art mixing theories and data processing and interpretation techniques, placing the fellow at the forefront of reactive transport modelling.

Project Detail

A rapidly evolving epidemic in Type 2 Diabetes (T2DM) is afflicting all ages, sexes and socioeconomic classes which includes serious comorbidities such as heart diseases. While ischaemic heart disease represents the major cause of death of T2DM patients, heart failure (80% of Heart Failure with preserved Ejection Fraction) is the second most common cardiovascular disease in T2DM patients. The aim of CARDIATEAM is to determine whether T2DM represents a central mechanism contributing to the pathogenesis and progression of a specific cardiomyopathy, called “diabetic cardiomyopathy” (DCM), assessing whether DCM is unique and distinct from the other forms of heart failure. To achieve this aim CARDIATEAM will build up a deeply phenotyped cohort, including an innovative imaging protocol, based on privileged access within the CARDIATEAM to already existing highly pertinent cohorts of diabetes and heart failure patients and control groups. Central biobanking of the cohort samples will allow detailed omics analysis that will feed together with the phenotype and imaging data into the central CARDIATEAM database. The data gathered will enable unsupervised machine-learning for clustering this heterogeneous population on phenotypic differences beyond diabetes. State-of-the-art big-data processing techniques and disease modeling will allow for controlling for common confounders such as BMI, smoking, age and blood pressure and will finally lead to the identification of new imaging and molecular biomarkers as well as understanding the taxonomy of the development and progression of DCM. Tailored preclinical models will be developed to explore the identified pathways revealing new therapeutic targets. The results of CARDIATEAM will be able to impact clinical care with the stratification of patients into risk groups of developing DCM, earlier diagnosis of DCM and an improvement of therapy thanks to better assessment of underlying pathophysiology and identification of new biomarkers.

Giving Beekeeping Guidance by cOmputatiOnal-assisted Decision making
Company Name UNIVERSITEIT GENT
Funded By 38
Country Belgium , Western Europe
Project Value 8 Million
Project Detail

A key to healthy beekeeping is the Health Status Index (HIS) inspired by EFSA’s Healthy-B toolbox which we will make fully operational, with the active collaboration of beekeepers, by facilitating the coordinated and harmonised flow of data from various sources and by testing and validating each component thoroughly. We envisage a step-by-step expansion of participating apiaries, and will eventually cover all EU biogeographic regions. The key to a sustainable beekeeping is a better understanding of its socio-economics, particularly within local value chains, its relationship with bee health and the human-ecosystem equilibrium of the beekeeping sector and to implement these insights into the data processing and decision making. We will fully integrate socio-economic analyses, identify viable business models tailored to different contexts for European beekeeping and determine the carrying capacity of the landscape. In close cooperation with the EU Bee Partnership, an EU-wide bee health and management data platform and affiliated project website will be created to enable sharing of knowledge and learning between scientists and stakeholders within and outside the consortium. We will utilise and further expand the classification of the open source IT-application for digital beekeeping, BEEP, to streamline the flow of data related to beekeeping management, the beehive and its environment (landscape, agricultural practices, weather and climate) from various sources. The dynamic bee health and management data platform will allow us to identify correlative relationships among factors impacting the HSI, assess the risk of emerging pests and predators, and enable beekeepers to develop adaptive management strategies that account for local and EU-wide issues. Reinforcing and establishing, where necessary, new multi-actor networks of collaboration will engender a lasting learning and innovation system to ensure social-ecological resilient and sustainable beekeeping.

Passive seismic scanning of the preparation phase of damaging earthquakes
Company Name UNIVERSITE GRENOBLE ALPES
Funded By 38
Country France , Western Europe
Project Value 3 Million
Project Detail

The recent September 2017, magnitude 7.1, central Mexico earthquake that caused 370 casualties reminds us that earthquakes are among the most dramatic natural disasters worldwide. Causal physical processes are not instantaneous and laboratory and numerical experiments predict that earthquakes should be preceded by a detectable slow preparation phase. Despite considerable efforts, however, robust geophysical precursors have not yet been observed before damaging earthquakes. My FaultScan project will revolutionize our ability to directly observe transient deformation within the core of active faults and provide unprecedented accuracy in the detection of earthquake precursors. My ambition is to develop a new, noise-based, high resolution, seismic monitoring approach. I intend to grasp the opportunity of a recent step change in seismic instrumentation and data processing capabilities to achieve a dream for seismologists: reproduce repeatable, daily, virtual seismic sources that can probe the core of active faults at seismogenic depths using only passive seismic records. I plan to target the San Jacinto Fault (a branch of the San Andreas Fault system) that is currently believed to pose one of the largest seismic risks in California. It is an ideal fault for this project because it is very active, already extensively studied and easily accessible for the pilot field data acquisition work. This project is in collaboration with the Univ. of South. California, the Univ. of Cal. San Diego and specialists in earthquake mechanics and will include earthquake preparation processes and seismic modeling that will guide us for our long-term (3 years), breakthrough, passive seismic experiment and further data analysis and interpretation. I strongly believe that this project has a very high potential for providing fundamental results on the physics of earthquakes and faults and that it will have a major impact on earthquake prediction worldwide in the near future.

Light Induced Bipolar Electrochemical Doping in Perovskite Devices
Company Name FUNDACION IMDEA MATERIALES
Funded By 38
Country Spain , Western Europe
Project Value 160,932
Project Detail

Photonic and electronic devices are developed by manipulating the electronic structure of semiconductors and dielectric materials. Fabrication routes that utilize lithography, ion implantation, and self-assembly are expensive or hard to control. Ion-doped organic semiconducting films hold the potential for easy-to-fabricate single-layered devices via solution-based deposition techniques. Currently, flexible devices are fabricated as a stack of uniform thin films with single or multiple semiconducting layers. Modifying the two-dimensional (2D) electronics structure in each film allows for making complex three dimensional (3D) on-chip photonic and electronic devices. Solid-state bipolar electrochemistry was demonstrated in planar Light-emitting Electrochemical Cells (LECs). A conducting floating bipolar electrode (BPE) is placed between the driving electrodes were redox reactions take place driven by the potential drop at the BPE-extremities. Recently, light was shown to induce the same effect in the mixed (ionic-electronic) conducting films. Here, we propose to utilize this non-contact method to locally induce doping in perovskite nanoparticle photonic devices, aiming for two major finding. On one hand, we will take advantage of this optical technique to study degradation mechanism in perovskite nanoparticle surrounded by ionic electrolytes in order to identify the best electrolyte towards enhancing device performance. On the other hand, we will explore new 2D photonic patterns written in planar and flexible perovskite photonic devices. Methods to fix doping in the formed devices will be established. This includes post-doping polymerization or cross linking, as well as high-temperature glass transition ionic conductor along with photothermal nanoparticles. Success of this project will be of high interest for research and industrial applications in perovskite photonics focused on, for example, lighting, lasers sensing and data processing.

Real-Time GNSS for European Troposphere Delay Model
Company Name UNIVERSITAET STUTTGART
Funded By 38
Country Germany , Western Europe
Project Value 174,806
Project Detail

Remote sensing of the troposphere with Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) provides observations of spatial and temporal resolution higher than any other technique and operates under all weather conditions. The main product of GNSS meteorology, the zenith troposphere delay (ZTD), can be assimilated into numerical weather prediction (NWP) models in order to improve forecasting. The troposphere is also a major error source in GNSS positioning and a limiting factor for Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) observations. Both techniques are commonly used for hazard warning systems, which raise the demand for reliable real-time (RT) ZTD models. Accuracy and timely provision of ZTD estimates is limited by the quality and latency of satellite orbit and clock products. In 2013, the International GNSS Service started to provide RT products for GNSS, thus opening new possibilities for GNSS meteorology. Preliminary results revealed absolute accuracies of RT ZTDs of less than 30 mm, which is better than any other existing ZTD model available in RT. In order to further improve the quality of RT GNSS ZTD models we will make use of emerging GNSS, modify functional and stochastic models for data processing and provide sophisticated RT products i.e. troposphere gradients and slant delays. We will apply novel approaches in order to improve GNSS monitoring and correct InSAR observations, with the goal to better support RT earthquake and landslide warning systems. The aim of this project is to develop a high-quality RT GNSS model of the troposphere on two scales: dense regional (Germany, Poland) and sparse continental (Europe). The host at the University of Stuttgart, has vast experience in the development of next-generation positioning, navigation and timing solutions, and can provide the crucial infrastructure for this project. Secondments at the German Meteorological Service and the Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy will provide additional trainings.

Polychromatic digital optics for structured light
Company Name UNIVERSITE DE BORDEAUX
Funded By 38
Country France , Western Europe
Project Value 196,708
Project Detail

The development of photonics technologies implies ever-increasing agile optical components operating enabling the manipulation of the spatial degrees of freedom of light over broad spectral ranges. To date, spatial light modulators is a class of digital optical devices offering versatile management of light, however, state-of-the-art devices are operating efficiently only at a given wavelength. Here we propose to develop a digitally controlled spatial light modulator combining efficiency with intrinsically broadband behavior spanning the whole visible spectrum. This will be accomplished by integrating the advantage of spin controlled achromatic geometric Berry phase with broadband polarization-dependent circular Bragg reflection from spatially modulated chiral liquid crystals. Despite more than a century-long history of liquid crystals, the first report on the accumulation of Berry phase due to Bragg reflection came only very recently from the research group lead by the host scientist. The proposed two-year project to develop spatial light-modulators based on this basic physical principle. By doing so, we aim at controlling the interaction between the polarization state of light with its spatial degrees of freedoms (i.e., the spin-orbit interaction of light) by exploiting the inherently robust and diverse topological structures that spontaneously appear in anisotropic soft condensed matter systems such as liquid crystals. In particular, we will take advantage of both the self-organization orientational processes occurring in liquid crystals and their extreme sensitivity to external fields. By implementing a recently demonstrated physical concepts into a novel generation of spin-orbit optical devices enabling spatial control of the optical phase over a broad spectral range, this project will offer further possible applications for advanced photonic technologies, for instance in optical data processing, optical imaging and optical manipulation.

Metals Technology in North Aegean Societies
Company Name UNIVERSITE LIBRE DE BRUXELLES
Funded By 38
Country Belgium , Western Europe
Project Value 166,320
Project Detail

The project involves an interdisciplinary study of mining landscapes in northern Greece and archaeological material found therein by employing modern analytical techniques (GIS, archaeometry) in order t? provide quantifiable data on the social, symbolic and economic significance of metal production in the ancient world. The project’s objective is to address three crucial research questions corresponding to different technological breakthroughs: a) the emergence and early development of copper and silver technology within the Late Neolithic/Bronze Age cultural framework (5th-2nd mill. BC), b) the introduction of iron metallurgy associated with increased connectivity between sites of the North Aegean and Anatolia around 1200-700 BC, c) the intensification of mining and extraction of gold and silver during the Archaic and Classical period (700-323 BC), triggered by the establishment of Greek colonies on the Thracian coastline. Its methodology employs interdisciplinary research tools such as archaeological finds recording, field survey, GIS data processing, sampling and archaeometric analysis of finds as well as experimental production of metals using ancient examples. The distinctive feature of this project that will expand research beyond the current state of knowledge will be re-socializing the study of metal production and subsequently to develop new multidisciplinary approaches which will have direct scientific impact on the study of ancient Greek metallurgy and society. Dissemination of the project results will be achieved through publication of scientific articles and a monograph, presentations in international conferences, organisation of a scientific workshop with invited speakers and seminars for students. Workshops for the general public featuring simulation experiments, lectures delivered at science outreach events and a dedicated website will be crucial aspects for communicating the project results more widely.
