CLImate relevant processing of Mineral Dust by volatile Organic compounds – CLIMDO
The CLImate relevant processing of Mineral Dust by volatile Organic compounds (CLIMDO) project tackles this under-explored science question by proposing the first comprehensive process-driven project addressing the reactivity of complex and realistic mineral dust/organic systems to better understand how dust and VOCs influence the global climate system.
PollutAnts and gReenhouse Gases emissiOns moNitoring from spAce at high ResolUTion – ARGONAUT
The industrialization and urbanization of the society has led to the degradation of air quality (AQ) resulting in more than 7 million premature deaths per year and the advent of Climate Change (CC). The society faces major environmental challenges with the need to develop coordinated environmental policies at the level of territories as well as nations to limit the impact of pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions on AQ and CC.
Single Nanopore for Analysis of Early Stages of ß-Amyloid Aggregation Leading to Alzheimer’s disease – NANOoligo
Developing tools for amyloid fibrils analysis at early stage able to discriminate the different population of oligomers and protofibrils and to evaluate the impact of promoters or inhibitors through amyloid shape analysis is particularly important to understand the external factor on Alzheimer disease. Our project aims at proposing a new analytical method based on nanopore technology to study the Aß42 amyloid fibril growth.
Political Participation of Asian Migrants and their Descendants in France – PolAsie
The PolAsie project plans to investigate the specificity of French Asians’ political participation through different domains (voting practices, participation in political campaigns, trajectories of Asian elected representatives, political mobilisations and collective action at local level, etc). It also aims at analysing these political practices by evaluating the processes of political socialisation before migration, after migration and within the diasporic groups.
Cohomology of locally symmetric spaces – COLOSS
Cohomology of locally symmetric spaces
Extremal Regression with Applications to Econometrics, Environment and Finance – ExtremReg
First, the investigation of mathematical properties under frontier models is often a lot harder than under the standard regression models. Second, while the extreme value properties of quantiles are well developed, much less is known about their expectile and extremile analogues. Third, the problem of estimating conditional extremes and risk measures in high dimensions has been much less discussed in the literature. Our project tries to solve <br />these issues in different directions.
Quantitative Analysis of Metastable Processes – QuAMProcs
In physics, metastability refers to some system evolving at different time scales from an initial position towards equilibrium. Such phenomena are now observed in many domains of sciences: biology (molecular dynamics), chemistry, economics, climate modelization, material science, etc. Recent progress in the analysis of these phenomena rose numerous challenging questions from both theoretical and computational point of view that we aim to adress during this project.
Metastability for nonlinear processes – METANOLIN
The project deals with questions linked to metastability for nonlinear stochastic processes: the so-called self-stabilizing diffusion (which is a McKean-Vlasov diffusion in which the law of the process intervenes in the drift through convolution), the self-interacting diffusio, (where the occupation measure intervenes in the drift) and Keller-Segel type diffusions (with space-time interaction).
Moduli spaces of Differentials: Flat surfaces and interactions – MoDiff
This project studies new problems of dynamics and geometry on moduli spaces of differentials (also viewed as flat surfaces), by exploring their interactions with combinatorics, enumerative geometry, complex geometry and hyperbolic geometry.
Proof of concept for the functionalization of lignins by applying laccase-dehydrogenase enzymatic treatments in biobased materials applications – FuncLIPRO
The FuncLIPRo project has been developed as a proof of concept in the context of industrial renewal and more specifically to improve the efficiency of industrial processes. It aims to deepen our understanding of lignin degrading enzymes (LDE) and in particular fungal laccases and dehydrogenases, and the mechanism of enzymatic deconstruction and modification of lignin.
