Deciphering the role of poroelasticity in tumor dynamics using multiscale acoustic probing – PoroTume
with a behaviour resembling that of poroelastic materials. As such tumours are comparable to sponges soaked
Adaptive materials have additional sensing or actuating properties compared to conventional materials. Composites [...] Composites are key materials for many fields (transport, aeronautics, renewable energies, ...). Their [...] structural and multifunctional properties, these materials have properties tailored to specific technical
Decision support for detection and collection of biological traces for genetic and criminal identification purposes – BioTrack
Touch DNA Traces left at the crime scene by offenders when touching an object, are widely collected to be analyzed for judiciary purposes. However, DNA profiles with a good quality are obtained for only about 30% of these samples. The main explanation for this huge loss of information is an insufficient amount of DNA recovered for the analysis.

Decoding the mechanotransduction: spatial and temporal coordination of the mechanical and biochemical signals – DeMeTr
Cells and tissues are able to sense and respond to their physical environment through an ensemble of complex processes named mechanotransduction. The system is highly dynamic and the signal transduction occurs in both directions: from the mechanics to the biochemistry and vice versa from the biochemistry to the mechanics. The coordination in space and time of the mechanical and biochemical signals is not yet clear and rarely addressed.
Decontamination measures to restore facilities and the environment after a natural or deliberate re-lease of pathogenic microorganisms – DEFERM
decontamination requirements, like different materials in sensitive rooms to be recovered, as well as
in embedded systems. We will deal with both the material (GPU, energy consumption…) and software (how to
Deep understanding study of ageing mechanisms of Li-ion batteries associated to renewable energies – VISION
relevant for the NMC material, which is a poor electronic conductive material and hence is very sensitive [...] frame of this project. Li-ion cells using materials Li(Ni1-x-y,Mnx,Coy)O2 (NMC) for the positive electrode [...] reduction compared to LiNi1-x-yCoxAlyO2 (NCA) material used today. Task 1 of this project consists
Defect engineering in 2D materials: atomic scale properties and interaction with molecules – DEFINE2D
ional (2D) materials are unavoidable. To clarify the impact of such defects on materials properties and [...] selected 2D materials and embody viable defect engineering strategies to create verifiable new materials properties [...] properties. Our materials systems will include transition metal dichalcogenides (TMD), graphene, and black
Definition of a strategy to characterize historical ground motion based on ArChaeology, inventory of RecOnstruction, Seismology and Structural engineering – ACROSS
ACROSS stands for «ArChaeology, inventory of RecOnstruction, Seismology and Structural engineering«.<br /><br />The project goal is to demonstrate that archaeological characterization of post-seismic repairs on buildings can be successfully used to infer key ground motion and earthquake source characteristics of historical earthquakes.
