European ＆ international partnerships
The Joliot Institute maintains more than 200 collaborations with institutions in at least 15 countries around the world.
Its teams can draw on the Institute's resources to respond to calls for projects from the European Union (ERC, EIT Health, Research and Innovation Actions, ITN, etc.). They also benefit from the actions implemented by the CEA's Basic Research Division to develop their partnerships, particularly in Europe.
On September 3, the European Research Council announced the names of the 436 winners of the ERC Starting Grant 2020 call. Florent Meyniel, CEA researcher at the NeuroSpin department of the Joliot Institute, is among them.
The European Commission once more places its trust on Multiwave company and its partners, Aix-Marseille Université, CEA and Université Catholique de Louvain to revolutionize ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging of the brain.
In June 2019, the SCBM obtained a European FET-Open funding for the FLIX project (FLow chemistry for Isotopic eXchange), a radically innovative concept of isotopic labeling of molecules with high added values. This 4-year project, coordinated by CEA/SCBM, with an overall budget of 3.5 million euros started on January 1, 2020 and consists of seven European academic or industrial partners in five countries.
The Frédéric Joliot Institute for Life Sciences obtains the label of 13 research projects for the recruitment of talented international students in the fields of numerical simulation and scientific computing. Applications must be sent by April 30, 2020.
The European Research Council (ERC) announced, on December 10, 2019, the winners of the 2019 ERC "Consolidator Grants". Three CEA researchers are rewarded for the excellence of their work in astrophysics, particle physics and chemistry. In Joliot, chemistry is honored with the award of the research grant to Davide Audisio, SCBM, for his expertise in labeling molecules of interest with 14Carbone.
The M-CUBE consortium, funded by the H2020 program, is now listed in the "success stories" of the European Commission website. A further confirmation of the interest of the work of NeuroSpin physicits and their collaborators on metamaterials to "boost" the MRI of the future.
Europe is committed to better diagnostic and therapeutic management of patients with severe forms of cirrhosis. It finances the MICROB-PREDICT consortium, which aims to better understand the role of the human microbiome in the pathogenesis and evolution of cirrhosis. Final goal is to uture personalized therapeutic strategies and diagnostic tools. The SPI (Joliot Institute) is the main project lead for the CEA.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
