Redox-active Metal-Organic Frameworks as Electrode Materials for Lithium-Ion Batteries (RedoxMOFs)

Fundação para a Ciência e a TecnologiaCoordinator
One of the main concerns of modern society is reducing its dependence on fossil fuels. Due to their low cost and low environmental impact, electrical energy storage devices are among the most promising alternatives to conventional fossil fuels, as the electricity generated from renewable sources may be efficiently stored. In particular, lithium-...

Sustainable Surface Treatments of Complex Shape Components for Transsectorial Industrial Innovation (SURE2COAT)

European ComissionPartner
Light alloys, like Al, have shown to be good options for replacing steel in many sectors due to higher thermal conductivity and weight reduction they allow, which has become crucial e.g. for e-mobility. However, without protection, recycled Al is prone to corrosion under operation in harsh environments (e.g. heat exchangers in heat storage units...

Towards the use of IgY antibodies as alternative therapeutics (PureIgY)

European ComissionCoordinator
Immunoglobulins (or antibodies) are molecules produced by our white blood cells; the immunoglobins recognise 'invaders' and aid in their destruction. Humans make five different classes, one of which is similar in function to IgY, an unusual antibody made by chickens. The circulating IgY accumulates in the yolk of chicken eggs. This is convenient...

Unlocking the scientific excellence and innovation capacity of the University of Aveiro in supramolecular multicomponent biomaterials for enabling advanced biomaterials for healthcare (SUPRALIFE)

European ComissionCoordinator
The SUPRALIFE project is a Twinning project funded by the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme which is coordinated by the COMPASS Research Group at CICECO, at the University of Aveiro (UAVR, Portugal). The consortium also brings together the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e, The Netherland...

Unveiling CO2 chemisorption mechanisms in solid adsorbents via surface-enhanced ex(in)-situ NMR (NMR4CO2)

European ComissionCoordinator
Reaching a record high of 32.5 gigatonnes in 2017, global CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion continue to increase. Adsorption is considered a viable technology to reduce CO2 emissions. Because of its lower regeneration cost, amine-modified porous silica (AMPS) is the most promising CO2-adsorbent material for replacing the decades-old liqu...

Valorization of solid residues from the processing of chestnuts: extraction of biopolymers and preparation of biodegradable films (ChestFilm)

Other NationalPartner
O projeto tem por objetivo valorizar os resíduos gerados no processamento de castanha pela indústria agroalimentar para produção de filmes biodegradáveis, através do fracionamento diferencial dos resíduos e da caracterização dos compostos isolados (amido, celulose, compostos fenólicos e lipofílicos).

Yeast cell factory for mRNA bioproduction (Yscript)

European ComissionPartner
Ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules are gaining momentum for the treatment of various conditions including in the generation of antiviral vaccines. However, RNA production relies on costly in vitro transcription methods. The EU-funded Yscript project proposes an alternative method for production of messenger RNA (mRNA) molecules, using yea...
