CECM Teaming for Excellence

Duration: 1.09.2017 r. - 31.08.2018 r.
Aim: The project will develop a Business Case to establish in Poland Europe's first Centre for simulation-driven healthcare Decision Support. The Centre's mission comprises development of new computation-based solutions for diagnostics and therapy in daily healthcare to improve personalised patient treatment, enhanced growth of SMEs which deal with technologies and services for novel personalised diagnostics and treatment strategies, as well as strong advancement of algorithms, models and technologies involved in personalised medicine.
The project aims to develop a Business Plan establishing the Centre and enabling it to achieve measurable success through introduction of a number of solutions based on computational models to clinical trials, development of a number of new market-ready products and services based on innovations, authoring highly cited scientific papers, obtaining patents and securing grants.
The Plan will be based on the Polish Specialisation Strategy and will be elaborated by two Polish partners: ACC Cyfronet AGH (experts in simulation and computing infrastructures for science) and Klaster LifeScience Kraków (top cluster of industry, academia and hospitals in the life sciences domain), in collaboration with the University of Sheffield and Insigneo Institute (experts in translation of in silico modelling and simulations to clinics), Forschungszentrum Jülich (experts in innovative HPC and data techniques for science and industry) and Fraunhofer ISI (experts in systemic multi-domain solutions and innovation in medicine).

AARC2

Duration: 1.05.2017 r. - 30.04.2019 r.
Aim: The goal of AARC2 is to design an AAI (authentication and authorisation infrastructure) framework to develop interoperable AAI, to enable researchers to access the whole research and infrastructure service portfolio with one login. AARC2's objectives involve: 1) enabling federated access in research communities participating in AARC2, 2) assisting research communities to map their requirements to concrete service offerings, 3) supporting research (e-)infrastructures to implement the integrated architecture and policies frameworks developed by AARC project, 4) offering different training to adopt AARC/AARC2 results, 5) enhancing the integrated architecture.

EOSCpilot

Duration: 1.01.2017 r. - 31.12.2018 r.
Aim: The project will support the first phase of the EOSC (European Open Science Cloud) project by developing the foundation of the Open Science Cloud for Research, which will enable to easily combine multiple types of resources. In addition, a number of experimental pilot projects will be carried out to demonstrate future solutions. Within the project, a deep analysis of the problem of open science management on the Europen scale will be carried out, with a proposal of a new target model.

EPOS IP

Duration: 1.10.2015 r. - 30.09.2019 r.
Aim: EPOS is integrating the diverse, but advanced European Research Infrastructures for solid Earth Science, and will build on new e-science opportunities to monitor and understand the dynamic and complex solid-Earth System. The EPOS Implementation Phase project (EPOS IP) builds on the achievements of the successful EPOS preparatory phase project (EPOS PP); it is dedicated to realize the key elements of the EPOS implementation phase: the legal and governance framework, the financial framework for all its components, and a successful transition from the preparatory phase to the operational phase, being synergetic and coherent with the establishment of the EPOS-ERIC.

EurValve

Duration: 1.02.2016 r. - 31.01.2019 r.
Aim: Valvular Heart Disease currently affects 2.5% of the population, but is overwhelmingly a disease of the elderly and consequently on the rise. It is dominated by two conditions, Aortic Stenosis and Mitral Regurgitation, both of which are associated with significant morbidity and mortality, yet which pose a truly demanding challenge for treatment optimisation. By combining multiple complex modelling components developed in recent EC-funded research projects, a comprehensive, clinically-compliant decision-support system will be developed to meet this challenge, by quantifying individualised disease severity and patient impairment, predicting disease progression, ranking the effectiveness of alternative candidate procedures, and optimising the patient-specific intervention plan. This algorithmically-driven process will dramatically improve outcomes and consistency across Europe in this fast-growing patient group, maximising individual, societal and economic outcomes.
