International and intersectoral mobility to develop advanced scintillating fibres and Cerenkov fibres for new hadron and jet calorimeters for future colliders

(2015 – 2019)

Currently, new concepts are being considered for hadron and jet calorimetry in high energy physics experiments, in order to improve the energy resolution of these detectors by a factor of at least two. This is a prerequisite for future studies at the high luminosity, large hadron collider as well as at future electron and proton colliders. Amongst the few concepts being proposed, scintillating and Čerenkov fibres are considered very promising candidates.

The INTELUM project will be a 4 year project funding international, industry-academia exchanges to develop micro-pulling-down crystal growth and other new types of fibre technology. This new fibre production technology has the potential to enable fast, low-cost, manufacture of heavy crystal scintillating fibres.

In order to prove the new fibre technology concept, two key technical issues will be addressed during the project:

• demonstrate feasibility of producing between 20-200km of fibres with consistent quality and well defined production costs,
• demonstrate sufficient radiation hardness of the fibres that the degradation of their optical properties is below 10% at 1 MGy level.

This ambitious project will be undertaken by a truly international consortium of sixteen institutes and companies, many closely linked to the Crystal Clear Collaboration. The project will also lead to important impacts in other domains such as functional medical imaging and homeland security.

Metallocomplexes of macrocyclic compounds for photonic devices

(2015 – 2018)

The key objective of the METCOPH multidisciplinary project is to intensify and consolidate cooperation between several research groups from member states and third countries on topics within the field of fundamental interdisciplinary science. The project combines the basic ideas of organic chemistry, solid state physics, photochemistry and spectroscopy of metallocomplexes of macrocyclic compounds (MMC) for applications in quantum information processing, sensing, switching and amplification.

The project aims at focusing mutual efforts of five research groups with extended and complementary competence in their respective research fields and at gathering multidisciplinary and complementary expertise in chemical engineering and investigation of spectroscopy and photochemistry of MMCs for future design of photonic devices (e.g. organic light emitting devices – OLEDs, light emitting electrochemical cells – LECs, sensors, light emitting transistors) based on above mentioned compounds. The physical and chemical mechanisms of manipulation of optical response for these novel compounds will be revealed and analyzed with involving diverse spectroscopic approaches including steady-state and transient absorption, site-selective high-resolution luminescence, Raman scattering, atomic force microscopy and single-objects detection methods at different temperatures ranging from 1.2 K to ambient temperature.

The expected results involve fabrication and chemical/photophysical characterisation of MMCs based on various core metals and incorporating various functional organic ligands. One of the key technologies will rely on driving optical transistor with CW and pulsed lasers and will make use of simultaneous excitation of singlet and triplet states of the metallocomplexes of macrocyclic compounds. The new information gained for these newly synthesized MMC systems will have impact on the engineering of novel functional MMCs for application in nanotechnology and photonic devices.

TUneable Multiferroics based on oxygen OCtahedral Structures

(2015 – 2018)

The main objective of the project is development of new lead-free multiferroic materials for prospective application in forms of films and/or arranged layers in which the cross-coupling (magnetic-dipolar-elastic) can be tuned by both internal and external factors. This objective is to be achieved through preparation, investigation, and optimization of two kinds of Bi-containing oxygen-octahedral (BCOO) systems with paramagnetic ions involved: metastable perovskites and layered double hydroxides (LDHs).

The characteristic feature of such materials is a possibility of supplementary control parameters in addition to temperature and external electric/magnetic field. Polarization in such metastable perovskites is easily switched by application of external pressure (or stress in the case of films). Electric and magnetic characteristics of BCOO LDHs are tuned through appropriate anion exchanges. It makes these characteristics dependent on environment conditions: humidity, pH, and presence of specific anion species. The BCOO materials of both mentioned groups are of interest as new and unusual multiferroics. No LDH materials have been considered as potential multiferroics so far, while the metastable BCOO materials proposed in this project have not been obtained before. Besides, a tuneability and high sensibility of their properties to external impacts make them promising for applications in sensors.

Exploration and development of such materials require consolidation of specialists of complementary expertise in Physics, Chemistry, and Materials Science, with access to and skills in using specific and unique equipment and facilities. Therefore, formation of an interdisciplinary network of teams with different scientific culture and ensuring the effective knowledge & expertise transfer is important objective of the project. Advance in development of the BCOO multiferroics has potential market opportunities for R&D SME involved in this project.

Development of Smart Nano and Microcapsulated Sensing Coatings for improving of Material Durability/

(2015 -2019)

The scientific concept of the project is built on the fact that the injection of spin-polarized electrons from magnetic materials through nanosize interlayers with various conduction types causes a radical change of the charge transport and magnetic properties of the system as a whole. The use of thin interlayers between magnetic films makes it possible to form tunnel barriers for the control of the spin polarization degree of conduction electrons. Central to the project is the application of the ferrimagnetic double perovskite Sr2FeMoO6 with a very high spin polarization degree.

Using dielectric interlayers with a pre-determined thickness, one can control (suppress or amplify) the spin-polarized currents. The use of a porous silicon substrate makes it possible to preserve the charge carrier spins over rather long distances (up to a few micrometers). In the case of superconducting interlayers, the electron tunneling is provided by the presence of multiple Josephson tunnel junctions.

On the base of the above-stated information, Sr2FeMoO6-dielectric (or -superconductor) multilayered films and porous structures based on the “porous Si-Sr2FeMoO6” system will be created. Investigations of their microstructure, phase and elemental composition will be carried out. A special attention will be given to the studies of the interfaces between layers. Electrical, galvanomagnetic and magnetic properties of the structures in a broad range of temperatures and magnetic fields will be investigated as a function of the size parameters (interlayer thickness, diameter and surface density of pores).

It is planned to develop device prototypes functioning on the base of the spin polarization. Elaboration of technological and design schemes for the production of device prototypes with various degrees of spin polarization and types of tunnel junctions will be carried out.

MULTI-functional metallic SURFaces via active Layered Double Hydroxide treatments

(2015 -2019)

The main objective of the proposal is development of active multi-functional surfaces with high level of self-healing ability on the basis of Layered Double Hydroxide (LDH) structures formed on different industrially relevant metallic substrates. The main idea of the project is based on “smart” triggered release on demand for functional organic or inorganic anionic compounds intercalated into intergallery spaces of LDHs. The active functionality is achieved via controllable substrate-governed growth of LDH architectures on Al, Mg and Zn based alloys. The functional anions such as corrosion inhibitors, biocides, drugs, or hydrophobic agents are introduced into the intergallery spaces during the growth of LDH or upon a post-treatment stage. The release of the functional agents occurs only on demand when the respective functionality is triggered by the relevant external stimuli such as presence of anions or local pH change.

The proposal focuses on two main applications, namely aeronautical and automotive. The active LDH treatments can bring significant benefits when applied in these situations. The respective relevant substrates are chosen as the main objects of interest: Mg alloys for both applications; Al alloys for both transportation industries as well; galvanized steel as a main material for automobiles. Moreover, the suggested surface treatments, especially the one with active self-healing ability, are also considered for light-weight multi-material structures which are prone to fast galvanically-induced corrosion. The increase of the fault tolerance and reliability of hybrid designs is aimed in this case. The suggested surface treatments can offer possibility for fast implementation of the process at industrial level.

The main expected impacts are related to the improvement of the life cycle of the light-weight structures utilized in transport industries via optimization of the maintenance schedules and increasing the fault tolerance.

Collective Excitations in Advanced Nanostructures

(2015 – 2019)

This project aims to develop, fabricate, theoretically and experimentally study carbon based nano-circuits which are able to generate, detect and process broadband electromagnetic (EM) signals. The carbon nanoscale EM sources can be based, in particular, on Cherenkov radiation emerging when electrons move inside carbon nanotubes (CNTs) or between spatially separated graphene sheets. The frequency of the Cherenkov radiation depends on the CNT radius and chirality or on the distance between graphene sheets.  The performance of carbon EM nano-emitters is determined by the electron momentum relaxation time, which can be determined by measuring the generated THz and microwave fields. The frequency of the emitted EM radiation can be tuned by acoustic waves that provide distributed feedback for the EM wave. As well, the effects originating from strong coupling between material excitations in carbon-based structures and confined optical modes of microcavities will be investigated. The formation of polariton modes and their collective properties will be analyzed theoretically. Another set of problems to be considered in the proposed research is associated with the quantum mechanics and quantum optics of carbon-based nanostructures. We will look at excitonic and plasmonic collective effects in CNTs (especially narrow-band quasi-metallic ones, where excitonic effects are largely overlooked) and in few-layer planar Weyl materials such as graphene, silicene and germanene. We will also study collective photonics phenomena stemming from the quantum nature of light and look at sophisticated arrangements of carbon-based and other nanostructures in arrays or placing them in microcavities, thus utilizing the significant expertise of some of the participating groups in quantum optics aiming eventually at a design and feasibility study of novel advance-nanostructure-based optoelectronic devices including microwave, terahertz and light generators, detectors and frequency modulators.

People for tHe eurOpean bioENergy Mix


The development and adoption of renewable and sustainable forms of energy has become a major priority for Europe and is an important theme in H2020. Research into new, energy-related technologies to reduce Europe’s reliance on non-renewable fossil fuels is a critical need, and requires more newly qualified people in areas such as renewable-energy infrastructure management, new energy materials and methods, as well as smart buildings and transport. Bio-energy is particularly relevant to the Work Programme, because it is at the crossroads of several key European policies – from the Strategic Energy Technology Plan Roadmap on Education and Training (SET-Plan) to the European Bio-economy Strategy for European Food Safety and Nutrition Policy. So far, technological development has concentrated on using crops and wood for fuel, energy and industrial products. These conventional bio-resources are, however, limited, and the use of nonconventional, currently unused or under-utilised bio-resources provides the best possibility for the growth of the bioeconomy. However, European development in this priority field is failing to keep pace with demand due to a lack of qualified personnel, a lack of cohesion and integration among stakeholders, and poorly developed links between professional training and the real needs of industry. Based on seven work packages the Phoenix RISE project will address these issues by exploiting the complementary expertise of its partners and creating synergies between them through the targeted secondments of staff to advance research and innovation knowledge in bio-energy research. Phoenix is an international, interdisciplinary, cross-sectorial project, bringing together a total of 16 partners: 14 from the EU (5 companies and 9 academic organisations) and two Third-Country academic partners to enhance its collective research excellence and create new, post-graduate-level research training in key disciplines that support the provision of bio-energy.

Advanced Humidity to Electricity Converter


The HUNTER project will develop revolutionary power devices that convert humidity into electrical charge (hygroelectricity), thereby contributing to the European technology and creativity through joint R&D and R&I multisectorial and international cooperation activities supported by knowledge sharing. The devices will harvest electricity from atmospheric humidity and supply a current, such as solar cells capture sunlight and generate electrical power. The successful realization of the project is assured by implementing a coordinated network of knowledge sharing in materials science, physics and chemistry; by solidifying the state-of-the-art understanding in nanoelectronics and by applying bottom-up nanoengineering approaches via an international and inter-sector collaboration of highly qualified researchers from Portugal, France, Finland, Ukraine, Belarus and USA. Both technological (nanoelectronic device fabrication) and fundamental (charge transport mechanisms) issues will be assessed by this multidisciplinary consortium.
The successful realization of this project will lead to scientifically substantiated principles for the development of a new generation of functional materials and, consequently, to the creation of advanced nanoelectronic devices.

Within the HUNTER project, the consortium will implement research/innovation activities by means of functional secondments and organizing training courses, workshops and summer schools aimed at sharing knowledge, acquiring new skills and developing the careers of the consortium members. Sharing the culture of research and innovation, the HUNTER project will allow applying recent advancements in nanotechnology and materials science to the realization of the creative idea of Nikola Tesla (1932) of “capturing electricity from the air”. This vision will be performed in practice by innovative “humidity-to-electricity” devices, which will enhance the range of known renewable energy sources by a new atmospheric humidity source.

The EU and Eastern Partnership Countries: An Inside-Out Analysis and Strategic Assessment


Ten years after its inception, the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) has fallen short of accomplishing its mission. The war in Ukraine and the rising tensions with Russia have made a re-assessment of the ENP both more urgent and more challenging. EU-STRAT will address two questions: First, why has the EU fallen short of creating peace, prosperity and stability in its Eastern neighbourhood? Second, what can be done to strengthen the EU’s transformative power in supporting political and economic change in the six Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries?
Adopting an inside-out perspective on the challenges of transformation the EaP countries and the EU face, EU-STRAT will
• develop a conceptual framework for the varieties of social orders in EaP countries to explain the propensity of domestic actors to engage in change;
• investigate how bilateral, regional and global interdependencies shape the scope of action and the preferences of domestic actors in the EaP countries;
• de-centre the EU by studying the role of selected member states and other external actors active in the region;
• evaluate the effectiveness of the Association Agreements and alternative EU instruments, including scientific cooperation, in supporting change in the EaP countries;
• analyse normative discourses used by the EU and Russia to enhance their influence over the shared neighbourhood.
• formulate policy recommendations to strengthen the EU’s capacity to support change in the EaP countries by advancing different scenarios for developmental pathways.

EU-STRAT features an eleven-partner consortium including six universities, three think-tanks, one civil society organization and one consultancy. This consortium will achieve the research and policy relevant objectives of the project by bringing together various disciplinary perspectives and methodologies and strengthening links with academics and policy makers across six EU member states, Switzerland and three of the EaP countries.

All Solid-State Super-Twinning Photon Microscope


The goal of the project is to develop the technology foundation for an advanced optical microscope imaging at a resolution beyond the Rayleigh limit, which is set by the photon wavelength. The proposed microscope technique is based on super-twinning photon states (N-partite entangled states) with the de Broglie wavelength equal to a fraction of the photon wavelength. Such microscopy technique will comprise building blocks for object illumination, capturing of scattered twinning photons and data processing. Based on advanced group-III nitride and III-V alloy epitaxial growths and wafer processing techniques we will build the first solid-state emitter of highly entangled photon states, utilizing the cooperative effect of Dicke superradiance (super-fluorescence) emission. Single-photon avalanche detector arrays with data pre-processing capabilities sufficient for capturing high-order field correlation functions of scattered twinning photons will be developed. A dedicated data processing algorithm for extracting the image of an illuminated object from the statistics of scattered twinning photons will complement the hardware. The project goal is to demonstrate imaging at 42 nm spatial resolution using 5-partite entangled photons at 420 nm wavelength. This quantum imaging technology will open the way for compact, portable, super-resolution microscope techniques, with no moving parts and no requirements to the optical properties of the sample.

Multi-Energy High Resolution Modular Scan System for Internal and External Concealed Commodities


MESMERISE will develop and test a High-resolution non-intrusive scanner up to TRL 5 able to automatically detect and identify both internal and external concealed commodities being entirely independent of human operator interpretation and training and based on two complementary technologies: ultra-low-dose Multispectral Xray transmission and Infrasonic interrogation.
A novel x-ray detector, in addition to a higher imaging resolution, captures 256 channels of spectroscopic information, allowing a step change in material identification. Crucially, this level of resolution has the potential to enhance the detection of narcotics and explosives concealed in the body -a highly complex problem with currently available equipment.
A second subsystem for detecting externally concealed items based on a novel, intrinsically safe, technology (infrasound near-field acoustic holography) is entirely new to security screening. Low-fq MEM Micro-technology shall also be exploited to provide an automated version of non-contact pat-down.

Both sub-systems will be able to work independently, or together to provide complementary information and improve the detection of externally concealed objects. Automated algorithms for both subsystems and, through data fusion techniques, for the combined system will identify chemical substances, recognise pattern and detect anomalies with100g threshold in any part of the body, including prosthetic elements or plasters.
A big manufacturer of body scanners, SMEs, Univs, R&D centres, end-users and a diverse and high quality external advisory board, with a broad international contribution and connection to US counterparts provides a straightforward exploitation route.
Acceptance by society will be promoted by communication activities highlighting its non-contact nature, non divest condition and the absence of the requirement for operators to view explicit images through automated detection making MESMERISE intrinsically respectful of dignity and privacy.

BG-05-2016 — ERA-NET Cofund on marine technologies

Maritime and Marine Technologies for a New ERA


The overall goal of the proposed Cofund is to strengthen the European Research Area (ERA) in maritime and marine technologies and Blue Growth. The realisation of a European research and innovation agenda needs a broad and systematic cooperation in all areas of waterborne transport, offshore activity, marine resources, maritime security, biotechnologies, desalination, offshore oil & gas, fisheries, aquaculture etc. covering all relevant maritime and marine sectors and regions for a sustainable development of the maritime sector. Research and innovation activities in these fields cannot be tackled either at national levels alone, or solely by a single sector. Coordinated actions are required for the maritime industry to strengthen Europe’s position in this important and complex economic field in a global market. The proposing consortium will organise and co-fund, together with the EU, a joint call for trans-national research projects on different thematic areas of Blue Growth. Furthermore, additional joint activities that go beyond this co-funded call are planned, in order to contribute to the national priorities as well as to the Strategic Research Agenda of JPI Oceans and WATERBORNE. With the cooperation of ERA-NET MARTEC and JPI Oceans, a broader variety of topics with a larger amount of funding will be available for the trans-national projects. Moreover, the focus of development in MarTERA is given to technologies (instead of sectors) due to their potentially large impact to a wide range of application fields.
The proposal responds to the topic ERA-NET Cofund on marine technologies of the work programme 2016-2017 of the societal challenge 2 (Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research and the bio-economy) under Horizon 2020. Thereby it also contributes to the overall EU objective of building the ERA through enhanced cooperation and coordination of national research programmes.

GV-12-2016 — ERA-NET Co-fund on electromobility

ERA-NET Cofund Electric Mobility Europe


In collaboration with the European Commission and the European Green Vehicles Initiative Association, European countries and regions will set-up an ERA-NET Cofund to further promote electric mobility in Europe. Electric Mobility Europe builds on the experiences, networks and results of Electromobility+ and is designed to take transnational e-mobility research and policy exchange to the next level.

With a two-track approach, the initiative will link research and policy practice in support of electric mobility at the European level.

The first of two pillars of Electric Mobility Europe will fund innovation projects focussing on the application and demonstration of e-mobility with the objective of advancing the mainstreaming of the electrification of mobility in Europe. The initiative will bring together about 30 million EUR for supporting applied innovation projects, including up to 10 million EUR of co-funding provided by the European Commission under Horizon 2020.
In 2016, the initiative will issue a call for project proposals addressing the key areas of electric mobility:
1. System integration (transport, (sub)urban areas)
2. Integration of urban freight and city logistics in the e-mobility
3. Smart Mobility concepts and ICT applications
4. Public transport
5. Consumer behaviour and societal trends

In addition to funding innovation and demonstration projects, the ERA-NET Cofund Electric Mobility Europe will establish a second pillar of activity. The network will provide a platform for cooperation and exchange of information and experiences among participating countries and regions. In this context, know-how will be shared on setting conducive conditions for the development of electric mobility in Europe (e.g. on charging infrastructure). The network will support this by facilitating suitable means of cooperation such as workshops or seminars in order to exchange or coordinate required actions, in attunement with the European Green Vehicle Initiative Association.

H2020-EU.1.4. — EXCELLENT SCIENCE — Research Infrastructures

GEANT-CABLE-2015 — Europe Brazil Cable 1

Building Europe Link with Latin America (2016-2019)

The BELLA-S1 proposal aims to provide for the long-term interconnectivity needs of the European and Latin American research and education networks, and answers the call for transatlantic connectivity to Latin America in the H2020 Work Programme 2014-15. The objective will be to strengthen connectivity to Latin America ensuring very high capacity, cost benefits and the shortest possible route, whilst stimulating diversity over the transatlantic segment. The objective will be met in two phases: phase one will procure an indefeasible right of use for a portion of the spectrum of a direct submarine telecommunications cable between Europe and Latin America; phase two will deploy one or more wavelengths, as required, on the spectrum procured to interconnect the GÉANT and RedCLARA networks, and provide for the intercontinental connectivity needs of the European and Latin American research and education communities.

Effects of confinement on inhomogeneous systems


The objective of the project is determination of universal features and specific properties of various systems spontaneously ordering into spatially inhomogeneous structures (mobile ions in solids, ionic liquid mixtures, soft-matter and biological systems), with special focus on effects of confinement. There is striking similarity between properties of the above systems despite different interactions and length scales of inhomogeneities. The fundamental relation between structural inhomogeneities and mechanical and thermodynamic properties is not fully understood because the exchange of knowledge between the solid-state, liquid-matter, soft-matter and biophysical communities is limited. Theoretical and simulation approaches developed by 3 EU MS + 1 AC + 2 TC groups are closely connected or complementary. We use mean-field, liquid-matter, DFT, integral equations, field and collective-variables theories, molecular simulation approaches, and experimental methods of electrochemistry. We will share our experience in constructing/modifying, solving and verifying experimentally models for different complex systems. The new results and theoretical approaches will help in future studies of various inhomogeneous systems. The first work package concerns systems spontaneously forming ordered patterns, from thin films on solid surfaces through particles on interfaces to biological membranes and arid ecosystems. The pattern formation can be exploited in innovative technology. In the second work package we will investigate ionic liquids/ionic-liquid mixtures, especially near charged surfaces and in porous media, and mobile ions in intercalation compounds. Mobile ions and ionic liquids in porous electrodes are potentially important in innovative electrochemistry. EU/TC knowledge transfer will be by joint theoretical, simulation and experimental studies. Open workshops will be organized. Long term visits of young researchers and joint supervision of PhD students are planned.
