CHIST-ERA Call 2012 Announcement (26.11.2012)

The CHIST-ERA initiative is looking for highly innovative and multidisciplinary collaborative projects in information and communication sciences and technologies. Thus CHIST-ERA is open to new ideas and original solutions, involving interdisciplinary skills. In addition, the transformative research done in CHIST-ERA shall explore new topics with potential for significant scientific and technical impacts. In the Call 2012, two separate topics are addressed, namely:

Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI)  

Context- and Content-Adaptative Communication Networks (C3N)

The official Call Announcement is available below as attachment.

For this call a one-step submission procedure is employed. Applicants are invited to compile a single full proposal according to the templates available below and submit via the Electronic Submission System (ESS): the applicants will upload the Proposal Form in the ESS and will enter all the administrative and financial data directly in the ESS (the financial template provided here as attachment is only given to the applicants to help them preparing the proposal). The ESS will be opened in early December.

For projects selected for funding each partner of the consortium will be funded separately by the respective National Funding Organisation. Therefore all national regulations apply. Eligibility regulations (or links to them) for each National Funding Organisation are given in the appendix of the Call Announcement. Additionally, each PrincipaI Investigator(*), not just the coordinator, has to contact the respective National Contact Point(*) sufficiently prior to submission regarding eligibility issues.

Inorganic arsenic in animal feed: JRC study results in CEN standard (12.11.2012)

A collaborative study (IMEP-32) organised by the JRC jointly with the Technical University of Denmark has paved the way for a new European standard method (EN 16278:2012) for the determination of inorganic arsenic in animal feed. 19 laboratories took part in the exercise, which proved the analytical method was fit for purpose. Arsenic is an ubiquitous element, introduced to the environment from natural sources such as volcanic activity and weathering of minerals or anthropogenic sources such as ore smelting, burning of coal, pesticide use and the use of growth promoters. A large variety of different naturally arsenic species exist, especially in the marine environment, where more than 50 different species have been identified. The toxicity of the species varies very much, with inorganic arsenic being the most toxic species.

How can science contribute to financial stability? (12.11.2012)

Financial stability is a sine qua non to maximise the benefits of the internal market and generate growth and jobs. To restore confidence among depositors and investors, targeted reforms are necessary to create more transparent and better governed financial institutions. In this context, the JRC has organised today a high level roundtable where high-ranking financial experts, representatives of the science community, academics, heads of industry associations and policy makers discuss the important role that science can play for financial and economic issues. The aim is to help evaluate the main sources of risk and vulnerability in financial stability and pave the way for clear-sighted debate and targeted, evidence-based structural reforms.

JRC produces first certified reference material to monitor leukaemia (12.11.2012)

The JRC has developed a new reference material to support the monitoring of chronic myelogenous leukaemia (CML), a cancer of the white blood cells. In the EU, about 9600 new patients per year are diagnosed, and CML accounts for 70% of all childhood leukaemia cases. Currently this form of leukaemia cannot be cured, but it can be kept under control with specific enzyme inhibitors. Regular monitoring of the patient is needed to ensure optimal treatment. This is done by measuring the number of specific genetic fragments (BCR-ABL1 transcripts). Until now, it has been difficult to compare results from different laboratories, as no common material for the calibration of the monitoring equipment was available.
