Climate, climate variability and change strongly impact Europe. Drought severely affects agriculture; precipitation extremes are associated with flooding, severe damage to properties and lives; temperature extremes can increase mortality; the seasonality and availability of snow affects water resources and winter tourism and wind speed or sunshine hours affect the production...

Atmospheric particulate matter reduces visibility, adversely affects human health and impacts Earth's climate. Recent laboratory research has identified NH3 as a potentially important reactive species in the formation and aging of SOA, a significant but not-well-quantified class of aerosol particles. The goal of this project is to answer the questions: How does NH3 affect...

Wildfires have a great impact on the environment and can pose a threat to property and human lives and health. The occurrence of fire in natural vegetation is dependent on human activities and climate variability. In tropical areas such as the Amazon basin and Indonesia, wildfires are greatly affected by inter-annual fluctuations in tropical Sea Surface Temperatures...

Sand and dust storms (SDS) are an important threat to life, health, property, environment and economy in many countries, and play a significant role in different aspects of weather, climate and atmospheric chemistry. There is an increasing need for SDS accurate information and predictions to support early warning systems, and preparedness and mitigation plans. In alignment...

INB, the Spanish National Bioinformatics Institute, is a network founded in 2003 by Genoma España with the objective of promoting the development of bioinformatics in Spain. The network is formed by 10 nodes located at 9 different institutions and its central node coordinates the interactions of the INB nodes within the network and beyond. Currently, the INB is part of...

Rare Diseases, Biobanks, Clinical BioinformaticsDespite examples of excellent practice, rare disease (RD) research is still mainly fragmented by data and disease types. Individual efforts have little interoperability and almost no systematic connection between detailed clinical and genetic information, biomaterial availability or research/trial datasets. By developing robust...

The Research Infrastructure (RI) ACTRIS Aerosols, Clouds and Trace Gases project - was a pan-European RI that consolidated activities amongst European partners for observations of aerosols, clouds, and trace gases and provided an understanding of related atmospheric processes to provide RI services to wide user groups.

ACTRIS was composed of 8...

This Centre of Excellence will advance the role of computationally based modelling and simulation within biomedicine. Three related user communities lie at the heart of the CoE: academic, industrial and clinical researchers who all wish to build, develop and extend such capabilities in line with the increasing power of high performance computers. Three distinct exemplar...

Sector Engagement for C3S, Translating European User Requirements) aims to provide the direct engagement, identifying the gaps that must be filled by C3S in the future and providing both an implementation plan for the evolution of the service(s), and an articulation for the addition research needed, to meet users' requirements. SECTEUR will focus on the following sectors:...
