ReaDy-NMR

Abril Carolina Castro Aguilera

Relativistic and Dynamic effects in Computational NMR Spectroscopy of transition-metal complexes

Project duration: 2019-2021

Grant agreement ID: 794563

Call ID: H2020-MSCA-IF-2017

MAGSPEC

Sangita Sen

Spectra of Molecules in Strong Magnetic Fields

Project duration: 2018-2021

Grant agreement ID: 745336

Call ID: H2020-MSCA-IF-2016

This project seeks to develop the methodology to compute excitation energies and potential energy surfaces in the presence of strong uniform and non-uniform magnetic fields, included non-perturbatively, at varying levels of theoretical complexity and study the distortion of these spectra across a range of magnetic field strengths.

CASCADE-X

Elisa Borfecchia

CO2 to light olefins conversion by cascade reactions over bifunctional nanocatalysts: an ‘all X-ray’ approach

Project duration: 2018-2020 (ended Dec 2018, accepted a permament position in Italy)

Grant agreement ID: 793423

Call ID: H2020-MSCA-IF-2017

This project proposes an ultimate approach to directly convert CO2 to light olefins, which will  improve our understanding of key fundamental issues in both hydrogenation and methanol-to-olefins chemistry.

SPITFIRE

Sofia Ferreira

SPatial variability and Implications of the Timing of FIsh Responses to the Environment

Project duration: 2018-2020

Grant agreement ID: 794301

Call ID: H2020-MSCA-IF-2017

By comparing predator-prey relationships, this project will help answer the major question in fish ecology and management – what determines fish recruitment? – and thus lead to better management of marine resources.

MycoIndoor

Pedro Maria Martin-Sanchez

Deciphering the mycobiome of indoor environments by high-throughput sequencing

Project duration: 2018-2020

Grant agreement ID: 741332

Call ID: H2020-MSCA-IF-2016

This project will improve our basic understanding about the indoor mycobiome, which will help to control fungal outbreaks as well as their adverse effects on building materials and occupants. 

EVOSPARROW

Mark Ravinet

The evolutionary origins and consequences of human-commensalism in Passer sparrows

Project duration: 2018-2020 (ended Nov 2019, accepted a permanent position in UK)

Grant agreement ID: 748299

Call ID: H2020-MSCA-IF-2016

In this project, I will develop an evolutionary framework to study how and when did the dependency on the human niche arose in commensal species, particularly passer sparrows.

FLYWING

Masahito Tsuboi

Linking micro- and macroevolution: macroevolutionary quantitative genetics of Drosophila wing morhology

Project duration: 2017-2019 (ended Dec 2017, accepted a Swedish Research Council Grant)

Grant agreement ID: 747338

Call ID: H2020-MSCA-IF-2016

The project will apply novel quantitative genetic theories and statistical methods to analyses of exceptionally high quality data to make a major step forward to solve the paradox of stasis.

BAC-STAR

Kenneth Schneider

Bacterial Adhesion Control through Surface TArgeted Regulation

Project duration: 2017-2019

Grant agreement ID: 704903

Call ID: H2020-MSCA-IF-2015

This project aims to conduct fundamental investigations of bacterial adhesion and create the knowledge base to advance surface engineering approaches.

Project duration: 2016-2018

Grant agreement ID: 704491

Call ID: H2020-MSCA-IF-2015

This project aims at formulating a new hybrid particle-field approach including explicit treatment of electrostatic interactions for computational modelling of complex biological environments. 

Mycena

Christoffer Bugge Harder

Unraveling the ecology of a widespread fungal group by genomic, isotopic and physiological analyses

Project duration: 2015-2017

Grant agreement ID: 658849

Call ID: H2020-MSCA-IF-2014

This proposal aims to shed light on the life strategy of Mycena (or bonnet mushrooms), a widespread group of macrofungi and with important functions in forests and other terrestrial ecosystems.
