Open data project ‘EGSIEM’ to map flood and drought in Europe

Open data can not only be used for further scientific research but can also be applied for practical application and innovative tools. Our featured project: EGSIEM shows how collecting data on the redistribution of environmental mass can help monitoring and forecasting floods and droughts. It does not only provide data but also the tools tointerpret them and work with them.

Data for Users: ProteomeXchange

The ProteomeXchange consortium has been set up to provide a common framework for the cooperation of biological resources storing mass spectrometry (MS) proteomics data. With this overall goal in mind, we have defined and implemented consistent and user-friendly data deposition and dissemination policies.

Switchbox: promoting health in old age by opening the research outcomes

About the Project

logo-switchboxThe overall aim of Switchbox is to promote health in old age by better understanding of body-brain-mind circuits. The focus of this FP7 project has been placed on metabolic homeostasis, integrated by the hypothalamus, which via its projections to other brain regions and the periphery regulates both metabolic and mental health. To reach these objectives Switchbox has designed a general strategy that will go beyond the focus of many current aging studies in humans and in animals that concentrate on the establishment of specific, one-to-one, correlations, based on a priori hypotheses.

ice2sea - Valuable Research Results Made Open

The Problem

Sea levels are rising. Understanding why this is happening is one of the key activities of the ice2sea project. A vast amount of research has produced many publications and datasets, many of which are now open access. 

The Goals 

Since the beginning of ice2sea, researchers at each of the 24 partner institutions have worked
towards three common goals:

  • To develop the knowledge and tools to enable a more robust prediction of sea-level rise;
  • To produce the first projections of the contribution of continental ice (glaciers and ice sheets) based solely on physically-based models and tied to specific scenarios of greenhouse gas emissions;
  • To identify and train a new generation of young scientists with the insight, skills, and collaborative networks to take the science of sea-level projection forward in future decades.

Promoting Open Access: The HERMIONE Project

The FP7-funded HERMIONE project have had relatively good success in promoting publishing in open access to their researchers. The project investigated the distribution of ecosystems of varying size on the deep-sea floor and looked at interconnections between them. It determined some of the environmental tolerances that maintain these ecosystems (e.g. temperature, food supply) and looked at the functioning of these ecosystems, which is dependent on biodiversity.
