Partners have been engaged into various collaborations funded and co-funded by European Commission. You may find more information below about the projects that have been carried out by the consortium.
A multi-disciplinary consortium of eight partner institutions from six countries – France, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden and the United Kingdom are joining their effortsto improve care for people with young onset dementia (YOD) by supporting their carers. The project will create an educational, web-based, interactive e-learning programme which is tailored to the needs of this particular group of people.

ASTARTE is organized to foster tsunami resilience in Europe through innovative reserach on scientific problems critical to enhance forecast skills in terms of sources, propogation and impact. ASTARTE will develop critical scientific and technical elements required for a significant enhancement of the Tsunami Warning System (TWS) in the NEAM region in terms of monitoring, early warning and forecast, governance and resilience. Overall, this will lead to the goal of the European/NEAM Horizon 2020 strategy: to foster tsunami resilient communities. For further information you may visit project web site: http://www.astarte-project.eu/.
The project will develop the first homogeneous region-wide long-term Probabilistic earthquake-induced Tsunami Hazard Assessment (PTHA) for the coastlines of the North East Atlantic, the Mediterranean, and connected seas, and trigger a common tsunami-risk management strategy in the region.For further information you may visit http://www.tsumaps-neam.eu/about-tsumaps-neam/.
The project will produce the guidelines to design, manage and monitor network of Marine Protected Areas, and an enriched wind atlas for both the Mediterranean and the Black Seas, creating a permanent network of excellent researchers (e.g. with summer schools) that will work together also in the future, making their expertise available to their countries and to the European Union.
