Prior to 2010, Sargassum brown algae bloomed only in the tropical North Atlantic, in the Sargasso Sea. Currently, it has been observed on the Brazilian coast, as far as the Mexican coast and throughout the Caribbean Sea. At the same time, in the western Atlantic, it is flourishing on the African coasts, from Sierra Leone to Ghana, creating the Atlantic Sargassum Green Belt (ASGB) with possible continuity between the eastern and western parts. Questions of the influence of climate change on modifications in hydrodynamic conditions in the equatorial zone and possibly on changing wind and precipitation drift patterns and associated rivers inputs are not elucidated in relation to the increase and geographic shift in ASGB.
Multinational and translational research projects on Cerebrovascular Diseases including Small Vessels and Brain Barriers Dysfunction - ERA NET Neuron - 2022
The aim of the call is to fund multinational, collaborative research projects that will address important translational questions in the areas of stroke and other cerebrovascular diseases including small vessels disease (CSVD) and the dysfunction of brain barriers.
The seventh round of Open Research Area (ORA) is based on an agreement between the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR; France), the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG; Germany), the Economic and Social Research Council of UK Research and Innovation (ESRC; the UK), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC; Canada).
This call aims at helping the scientific valorization of remarkable data, observations and measurements that can only be realized within the framework of these infrastructures and long-term programmes labeled nationally or internationally. The ESDIR 2022 call for projects is dedicated to the research campaigns conducted on these two large infrastructures and whose data are already acquired or in the process of guaranteed acquisition by the start of the projects (end 2022).
Designed to improve France’s success rate in European Research Council (ERC) calls, Tremplin-ERC (T-ERC) is a funding instrument set up by ANR as part of its Work Programme 2021. T-ERC is open to all ERC research disciplines (LS, PE, SH).
