Advancing scientific knowledge and technological development of novel, clean and efficient cooling solutions that fully underpin “cold economy” vision.
Develop research and early innovations with a breakthrough potential related to design, fabrication and materials for the AEC value chain enabled by novel algorithms and advanced digitalization. In such a digitalized AEC value chain design, fabrication and materials are symbiotic and mutually dependent and enabling.
Will only fund multi-disciplinary research proposals that include at least nutritional, microbiome and glycan research aspects. The research focus can be on one or more of the Challenge specific objectives. Proposals are expected to investigate the interactions among nutrition, human gut microbiome and glycans beyond the state- of-the-art, to better clarify the role of diet into human health, including for example the interactions of whole plant foods, highly processed food and fermented foods with the human gut microbiome and glycans.
The goal of this Challenge is to investigate and provide scientific evidence of the role of diet in FrHCs and NCDs.
Create opportunities for discovery of new environmentally friendly electronic materials, thus reducing its environmental impact and the need for critical raw materials and hazardous chemicals.
Development of technologies required for in-space energy harvesting and transmission, and of novel propulsion technologies that will use such harvested energy.
