Projects and testimonies
OpenCare is an online community driven project that addresses social dimensions of public healthcare issues. OpenCare is part of the Horizon2020 CAPSSI program (Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation).
Coordinated by the University of Bordeaux’s Computer Research Laboratory (LaBRI). It is a two year (2016/2017), 1.5M€ initiative.
European Joint Doctorate FunMat Coordinated by Thierry Toupance (ISM). A project which further underlines the University of Bordeaux's reputation in the field of functional materials.
The EJD (European Joint Doctorate) FunMat, coordinated by the doctoral school of chemical science, is one of the 4 ITNs chosen and financed in 2014 for the University of Bordeaux. The goal of this European consortium is to set up a joint PhD programme in the functional materials field.
The RESMOSYS ETN (“Research on multi-stimuli responsive molecular systems and materials”) is among the four ITN (Innovative Training Network) promoted by the University of Bordeaux within Horizon 2020. A European network of ten academics and industrial partners coordinated by the University of Cambridge who are working together in the field of nanotechnologies and their applications are multiple and concern electronics as well as medicine.
This program was launched in January 2015 and will take place over a period of four years. It will allow new molecular systems and smart materialsto be created.
The University of Bordeaux is participating in this project with the laboratory of Chemistry and Membranes & Nano-sized objects Biology (CBMN). Ivan Huc, researcher in supramolecular chemistry, supports the project at a local level.
ERC Starting - SEGWAY is a project led by Stéphanie Debette, Professor of epidemiology and neurology at the University of Bordeaux and INSERM UMR897, and adjunct associate professor in the department of neurology was distinguished by the ERC for her: « Study on Environmental and GenomeWide predictors of early structural brain Alterations in Young students » SEGWAY project.
The SEGWAY project aims to explore the heritability and genetic determinants of structural brain phenotypes in young adults in their early twenties participating in the i-Share study, the largest ongoing student cohort; Identifying common biological mechanisms underlying both early and late-life structural brain changes would provide important information on the mechanisms and timecourse of brain aging throughout a lifetime and could be of major importance for characterizing high risk populations most likely to benefit from early interventions.
Duration: 5 years starting from December 2015. Funding: 1.5M€
