Multi-scale approaches for best resource management practices of Sahelian landscapes in the Great Green Wall for the Sahara and the Sahel Initiative context – FUTURE-SAHEL
The Sahel is one of the most vulnerable regions on Earth. To respond to its increasing ecological and human vulnerability, the adoption of the Great Green Wall (GGW) in 2007 was a step in the right direction. Future Sahel is extremely timely in that it aims to produce ground-breaking interdisciplinary, multiscale knowledge to inform natural resource management decisions along the GGW. Knowledge sharing and transfer are facilitated by the inclusion of Senegalese GGW agency as a project partner.

Microscale spatiotemporal investigation of multi-species electroactive biofilms using optical microfluidic platform – MICROBE
Electroactive microbial biofilms are electrochemical biocatalysts capable of extracting the chemical energy contained in a wide range of organic substrates (effluents, biowaste, biomass, etc.) in the form of a flow of electrons (electric current). However, in the case of electroactive biofilms, the «multispecies« character gives biofilms a complexity that no one is currently able to master.
A new generation of robots inspired by the swimming of aquatic snakes has recently emerged in academic contexts. Thanks to their exceptional manoeuvrability, they could intervene urgently in complex situations. However, despite this potential, their surface stability is too precarious. The SSSNAEQ project aims to remove the scientific barriers to surface instability by taking inspiration from snakes,

ABSOLUte asymmetric synthesis by means of CATalysts supported on extremely chirally-amplified supramolecular scaffolds – AbsoluCat
A general approach towards absolute asymmetric syntheses achieved by rational design. All industrial processes rely on chiral precursors to produce new chiral compounds and this paradigm is a severe limitation of asymmetric synthesis. Absolute asymmetric synthesis, i.e. the preparation of enantiopure compounds without the help of any chiral species, is still very limited. A general approach towards absolute asymmetric syntheses would thus constitute an important breakthrough.
