The COVID pandemic can be seen as an experiment done with the entirety of humankind (as almost everybody has been or will get infected with SARS-CoV-2). It will therefore have the best coverage over the widest variation possible and is therefore ideally suited to study the effects of infections with SARS-CoV-2 on large quantities of heterogeneous individuals. In our project,...

Interstitial Lung Diseases (ILDs) are a heterogeneous group of >100 different rare diseases, which share the fate of progressive scarring and, ultimately, death. Two anti-fibrotic drugs have demonstrated to slow-down fibrotic progression and steroids/immunosuppressants are commonly used for inflammatory-driven ILDs. However, patient's response to therapeutic options is...

EUropean Federation for CAncer IMages (EUCAIM) joins 79 partners to deploy a pan-European digital federated infrastructure of FAIR cancer-related de-identified images from Real-World. The infrastructure is designed to preserve the data sovereignty of providers and provide a platform, including an Atlas of Cancer Images, for the development and benchmarking of AI tools towards...

The vision of CREXDATA is to develop a generic platform for real-time critical situation management including flexible action planning and agile decision-making on streaming data of extreme scale and complexity. CREXDATA develops the algorithmic apparatus, software architecturesand tools for federated predictive analytics and forecasting under uncertainty. The envisioned...

The Genomic Data Infrastructure (GDI) project brings together national agencies, research organisations, and technology providers in 22 countries to provide a cross-border federated network of national genome collections, associated with other relevant data, for advancing data-driven biomedical research and personalised medicine solutions to benefit citizens of...

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...

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...

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...

The sustainability of plastic materials implies attaining a renewable origin and recyclable nature. Unfortunately, both conditions are far from being fulfilled by the current industry. In the polyester sector, PET [poly(ethylene- terephthalate)], one of the most common plastics, has a petrochemical origin. Happily, PEF [poly(ethylene-furandicarboxylate)] is emerging as a...

The goals of this inter-disciplinary project are to:

1) gain understanding of the mechanisms causing chemoresistance in high-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) patients,

2) deliver tools that enable effective and cost-efficient personalised treatment options for HGSOC patients, and

3) commercialise...
