The radical transformation of transport systems so they provide sustainable, clean, safe and integrated mobility is a major policy goal at nationaland European level. A major part of this effort aims to provide enhanced mobility experience to all users and improve the efficiency and safety of the transport network. Furthermore, the transport sector has a significant...

The prevalence of inflammatory upper airways diseases is estimated around 20% of the worldwide population. These pathologies damagethe life quality of approximate 1000 millions of people suffering that problem implies a huge economical cost.

Today existing treatments do not offer enough efficacy to successfully fight these diseases. It should be...

Cancer's complex nature requires integrating advanced research data across national boundaries to enable progress. Indeed, the Horizon Europe mission board for cancer has identified access to data, knowledge and digital services - accessible across the European Research Area through federated infrastructures - as a key enabling condition for...

Biomaterials in healthcare span almost all medical fields, ranging from recognised materials to high-innovative innovative and multifunctional biomaterials. One of the main challenges is to provide accessible and well-structured data on biomaterials for all relevant practitioners and user groups. BIOMATDB+ aims to create an advanced database for biomaterials providing...

As our planet heats up due to climate change, outbreaks of zoonotic diseases – diseases that spread from animals to humans – are increasing and expanding to new parts of the world, in particular Europe. Warmer temperatures, more variable rainfall, and the loss of biodiversity influence the survival and spread of zoonotic pathogens, and the reproduction and geographic location of...

Extreme climatic events, environmental degradation and socio-economic inequalities exacerbate the risk of infectious disease epidemics. We lack the evidence-base to understand and predict the impacts of extreme events and landscape changes on disease risk, leaving communities in climate change hotspots vulnerable to increasing health threats. This is in part due to a lack of...

The comparative genomics group (www.cgenomics.org ) is jointly affiliated to the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre (BSC) and the Biomedical Research Institute (IRB).

The main research interest of our group is to understand the complex relationships between genome sequences and phenotypes and how these two features evolve within and across species. We...

The Health Language Technology group of BSC generates AI and deep-learning based natural language processing resources, including components, annotated data/protocols as well as defining evaluation scenarios to assess and monitor quality of implementations by the global research community through high impact open data benchmark shared tasks (BioCreative/IberLEF/CLEF). The...

Available single cell reference biological data of tissues from pediatric healthy individuals within collaborative projects as the Human Cell Atlas are scarce. This type of data is fundamental to determine how tissues develop throughout early stages of life and are projected to adulthood. Thus, it is necessary to generate pediatric specific data from diverse tissues that can...

Pollution is one of the most significant environmental problems in modern cities, leading to disturbing odour episodes and low-air quality conditions that can be detrimental to public health. Its impact is increasing given the continuous city growth (79 % of the population worldwide live in urban areas) and the climate change effects. Nowadays, half the cities in high-income...
