Refractory metals (tungsten, tantalum, rhenium, molybdenum and niobium) are highly strategic metals today and they are mainly imported from a few countries. MSP-REFRAM will create a common multi-stakeholder platform that will draw the current refractory metals value chains and will identify its innovation potential in order to support the implementation of the EIP on Raw Materials.

The number of biobanks for clinical/biodiversity preservation purposes is increasing exponentially, representing an economic burden for the EU. Cryopreservation (Liquid Nitrogen LN) is the only cells long-term repository method. LN storage is expensive though, requires dedicated facilities, carries pathogens and has high carbon footprint. DRYNET objective is to set an multidisciplinary network between EU academic, SME, the EU pan-Biobank, and international partners, with the aim of sharing knowhow & expertise to lay down the theoretical and early empirical basis for the dry storage of cells/germplasm.

NANOBIO-FIBERSAFE: Progresses in DNA Nano-Biophysics, nanofibers and materials nanosafety assessment.
The project objective is to give an insight on describing the transition phase of A-DNA fibers denaturalization and the distribution and genomic correlation through a non-linear A-DNA molecule model. To achieve that, research tasks include the characterization through Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). Moreover, the research is also aimed to assess the safety and nanotoxicity of part of graphene family materials, as previous step to integrate into the quality control of a production line.
