Operationalising the Responsible Research and Innovation approach, DESIRA will enrol agriculture, forestry and rural stakeholders in co-developing scenarios and policies in Living Labs established in 20 European Regions, and a Rural Digitization Forum gathering 250 stakeholders from all Europe. A Virtual Research Environment tailored to the purposes of the project will connect all participants and allow to increase substantially the interaction within the network. DESIRA will provide a Taxonomy and Inventory of Digital Game changers which will be implemented into an online Visualization Tool, a Set of Socio-Economic Impact Indicators aligned to the Sustainability Development Goals implemented into an online Socio-Economic Impact Tool, a Pan-European Assessment of digitization in European rural regions, a Needs, Expectations and Impact appraisal report, a Comparative Scenario Report based on scenario development activities of Living Labs and the Rural Digitization Forum, a Policy analysis and Roadmap, an Ethical Code to be adopted by researchers and innovators and recommended by policy bodies, five Use Cases that will report a further analysis - co-created by Living Labs with the support of ICT specialists - of the most promising solutions identified by Living Labs, Showcase Technologies - including a Virtual Farm Platform - that will cr&eacute;ate a selection of proof of concepts suggested by Use Cases. A detailed, multi-media dissemination, engagement and communication strategy will accompany the project from the beginning, looking at research as a multifunctional (research, engagement and communication) process and at the same time involving communication specialists in the development of adequate messages and in the choice of the most effective media. 14 de diciembre de 2020 localhostNone Innovative Bio-interventions and Risk Modelling Approaches for Ensuring Microbial Safety and Quality of Mediterranean Artisanal Fermented Foods localhostNone <img style="float: left;padding-right: 10px;padding-bottom:10px;" src="localhost/static/photologue/photos/cache/ArtiSaneFood_detail.png" alt="ArtiSaneFood" title="ArtiSaneFood" />The overall objective of this project is to develop efficient intervention strategies, enhanced process control criteria, monitoring sampling schemes, and an easy-to-use food safety decision-support IT tool for artisanal food producers, aiming to the reduction and control of foodborne pathogens such as Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella spp., Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) and Staphylococcus aureus in selected traditional food products produced in Mediterranean regions of Portugal, Spain, Italy, France, Greece, Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria. The artisanal foods are 15 fermented foods of meat or dairy origin with unique technological and sensory characteristics, chosen for research because they may be potential vehicles for the transmission of foodborne diseases due to inadequate or antiquated manufacturing practices or final products' microbial instability. These artisanal foods may pose health risks to consumers as they are often produced with variable, mostly non-standardised productive processes, undergo short fermentation and, in some cases, are directly consumed without any cooking. &nbsp; 14 de diciembre de 2020 localhostNone An interlinked digital platform for Food Integrity and Traceability of relevant MEDIterranean supply chains localhostNone <img style="float: left;padding-right: 10px;padding-bottom:10px;" src="localhost/static/photologue/photos/cache/MEDIFIT_detail.png" alt="medifit" title="medifit" />Food fraud, including the more defined subcategory of economically motivated adulteration, is a public-health food risk that is growing in awareness, concern, and danger1. Each food fraud incident has the potential to threaten consumers' well-being but also undermine confidence in the EU food market. The impact may be higher for the Mediterranean traditional food products considering that they are generally recognized for their high nutritional and sensory value. Due to increasing number of food fraud incidents, there is an inherent need for the development and implementation of analytical platforms enabling detection and quantitation of adulterations. A comprehensive shared, trusted repository of analytical information about the Mediterranean foods is still lacking. The creation of a platform providing access to reference data would foster the necessary harmonization of the analytical methods and would create the foundation for trans-national authenticity and traceability systems. The overarching objective of MEDIFIT is to enable traceability, authenticity control of traditional Mediterranean foods integrating innovative analytical methods and digital technologies. To accomplish that, the consortium will link Decision Support Systems (DSSs) to a cloud-based Distributed Data and Service Integration BackBone (DDSIBB) providing access to decentralized food integrity information repositories. MEDIFIT will implement this IT-standards-driven solution for food integrity scenarios in two Mediterranean food chains: honey and cheese products by adopting a multi-actor approach from farm to fork. A key aspect of MEDIFIT will be to disseminate this platform to end-users, and organizing training courses for companies and stakeholders. &nbsp; 14 de diciembre de 2020 localhostNone Enhancing Mediterranean Fresh Produce Shelf-life using Sustainable Preservative Technologies and communicating knowledge on dynamic shelf-life using Food Cloud Services and Predictive Modelling localhostNone <img style="float: left;padding-right: 10px;padding-bottom:10px;" src="localhost/static/photologue/photos/cache/biofreshcloud_detail.png" alt="biofreshcloud" title="biofreshcloud" />The proposal aims to develop an integrated, innovative, and eco-friendly approach to assess optimal shelf-life and minimize food losses of strawberries and tomatoes produced in the Mediterranean region, by combining food bio-preservation technologies, food modelling, and Food Cloud tools. The technological solutions will be imbued by a sustainable and circular view, making use and valorising Mediterranean agri-food resources to develop natural preservative, that will be applied so as to extend food shelf-life and provide safer and fresher products to consumers. The limitation in resources of Mediterranean food enterprises, typically small or medium size, will be overcome through the application of Information Technologies (IT) and Predictive modelling based on Food Cloud Computing enabling food traceability and control at distance in automatic manner. The scientific results will be shared to a large group of producers and retailers via participant networks. The project is active in qualitative research and also aims at bringing an assessment of the quantitative performance as a basis for the future commercial exploitation of the innovation results. In the last quarter, the technologies will be performed under simulated and real food environments including all project partners and third parties interested in the project. &nbsp; 14 de diciembre de 2020 localhostNone Analytics for computation and visualization of liver resections localhostNone <img style="float: left;padding-right: 10px;padding-bottom:10px;" src="localhost/static/photologue/photos/cache/ALIVE_detail.png" alt="alive" title="alive" />Planning liver surgical resections is an extremely complex task. In this process, surgeons decide the trajectory separating the healthy part of the liver from the part that will be resected. Although liver resection has been practiced for decades, among surgerons, there is still no consensus on what a good resection is. An underlying problem contributing to this lack of consensus is the fact that there are no formal methods to specify and communicate resection plsns-clinicians often use subjective descriptions (written or oral) or hand-drawings. In ALive, we believe that liver surgical practice needs computer-assisted tools allowing the surgeons to specify resection plans in a flexible way, thus accommodating different surgery planning techniques and cultures. We also believe that providing a way to represent resections in a formal way can contribute to a better evaluation and communication of resection plans. ALive is a research project funded by the IKTPluss program from The Research Council of Norway. 14 de diciembre de 2020 localhostNone Self-healing, Multifunctional, Advanced Repair Technologies IN Cementitious Systems localhostNone <img style="float: left;padding-right: 10px;padding-bottom:10px;" src="localhost/static/photologue/photos/cache/SMARTINCS_detail.png" alt="smartincs" title="smartincs" />SMARTINCS is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action started in December 2019 dealing with the implementation of new life-cycle thinking and durability-based approaches to the concept and design of concrete structures. Concepts such as self-healing concrete, repair mortars and grouts appear as key enabling technologies. In SMARTINCS, 15-entrepreneurial early-stage researchers will be trained in the development of innovative, multifunctional self-healing strategies for new concrete structures, and in the implementation of advanced repair technologies for repairing existing concrete infrastructures. In the Project, research institutes, pioneers in smart cementitious materials, works together with leading companies along the SMARTINCS value chain, and with certification and pre-standardization agencies. The collaborative efforts of all partners have two main focuses: &bull; Develop sustainable and durable concrete solutions for new and existing structures. &bull; Scientifically substantiate the durability, sustainability and robustness of the developed self-healing cementitious materials. The planned activities within the ETN divided in a structure with 3 - work package structure. Training is given to the early stage researchers by their individual PhD projects which all fit within the scientific work packages 1-4, dealing with improved self-healing concrete (WP1), advanced local (self-)repair (WP2), durability, service life and sustainability (WP3) and technology transfer and entrepreneurship (WP4). 14 de diciembre de 2020 localhostNone Mountain Valorization through Interconnectedness and Green Growth localhostNone <img style="float: left;padding-right: 10px;padding-bottom:10px;" src="localhost/static/photologue/photos/cache/MOVING_detail.png" alt="moving" title="moving" />Mountain covers 36% of Europe area and play an essential role in the provision of public and private goods. Despite their relevance in both ecological and socioeconomic terms, we lack updated and comparable knowledge of the impacts of climate change, demographic trends and socioeconomic drivers in these areas; as well as the necessary policy-mix to address them. Advanced knowledge on the vulnerability of land use and production systems and related value chains; and on the long-term trends and dynamics affecting European mountains is necessary to design the next generation of policies. The overall objective of MOVING is to build capacities and co-develop - in a bottom-up participatory process with value chain actors, stakeholders and policy-makers- relevant policy frameworks across Europe for the establishment of new or upgraded/upscaled Value Chains that contribute to resilience and sustainability of mountain areas. &nbsp; 14 de diciembre de 2020 localhostNone Mobilization of Olive GenRes through pre-breeding activities to face the future challenges and development of an intelligent interface to ensure a friendly information availability for end users localhostNone <img style="float: left;padding-right: 10px;padding-bottom:10px;" src="localhost/static/photologue/photos/cache/GEN4OLIVE_detail.png" alt="gen4olive" title="gen4olive" />The GEN4OLIVE project is coordinated by the Cordoba University, and involves 16 interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary partners from 7 different countries: Spain, Morocco, France, Germany, Italy, Greece and Turkey. This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101000427. As its acronym shows, GEN4OLIVE aims to leverage olive Genetic Resources (GenRes) by bringing them to a higher level closer to breeders and markets. The overall goal of GEN4OLIVE is to accelerate the mobilization of olive GenRes and to foster pre-breeding activities by (1) developing a smart and user-friendly interface that will implement Artificial Intelligence utilities; and (2) enhancing breeders and growers' participation through the implementation of two open calls for supporting pre-breeding activities and breeding plans. GEN4OLIVE will develop collective pre-breeding activities aiming to in-depth characterize more than 500 worldwide varieties and 1000 wild and ancient genotypes around 5 topics: climate change, pests and diseases, production and quality, and modern planting systems. After integrating all results in the GEN4OLIVE interface, breeders and other end-users will have an effective tool for speeding up all kind of breeding programs. The combination of pre-breeding results with modern ICTs will enable the access of end-users to this valuable information. 14 de diciembre de 2020 localhostNone INclusive Health And wellBeing In small and medium size ciTies localhostNone <img style="float: left;padding-right: 10px;padding-bottom:10px;" src="localhost/static/photologue/photos/cache/IN-HABIT_detail.png" alt="inhabit" title="inhabit" />Access to health and wellbeing may be difficult for people due to their gender, disabilities or minority status, and especially if they live in a peripheral small town or city. To solve this problem, modern approaches are needed to integrate communities and achieve inclusive health and well-being. With this in mind, the EU-funded IN-HABIT project aims to design integrative actions that will be shaped according to the needs of local vulnerable groups in four peripheral small and medium size cities (SMSCs): Cordoba (Spain), Riga (Latvia), Lucca (Italy), and Nitra (Slovakia). They will take the leadership to test visionary and integrated solutions to foster Inclusive Health and Wellbeing (IHW) in SMSCs with a focus on gender and diversity. IN-HABIT visionary approach consists on the innovative mobilization of existing undervalued resources (culture, food, human-animal bonds and environment) to increase IHW. The integrated approach is based on the combination of technological, digital, nature based, cultural, and social innovations in selected urban public spaces. These solutions will be co-designed, co-deployed and co-managed with and by local stakeholders. IN-HABIT will be supported by the city of Bogot&aacute;'s (Columbia) former experiences. 14 de diciembre de 2020 localhostNone
