Legionnaires disease is a serious form of pneumonia caused by bacterium Legionella pneumophila, with a case-fatality ratio on the order of 10-15%. L. pneumophila proliferates in aquatic habitats, especially in potable water, air conditioning, hot and cold water systems, cooling towers, evaporative condensers, spa/natural pools. Actually, its detection and monitoring rely on time-consuming protocols (in the order of several days) based on in-vitro selective bacteria culture methods, performed by highly specialized personnel in dedicated laboratories. POSEIDON project targets to change the approach in bacteriological environmental monitoring and in infection risk management by developing a fully automatic and reliable system. Handling of the air/water sample will be designed and integrated in preconditioning system and microfluidic device through which whole bacteria cells will be transported from the sampling module to the sensing plasmonic surface. The complete measure protocol will be integrated and performed according to EU legislation guidelines. Specificity will be ensured by immuno-functionalization of gratings surfaces and enhanced system sensitivity will be granted by the optimization of the optical detection system architecture. Sensors based on Grating Coupled Surface Plasmon Resonance (GC-SPR) in azimuthally rotating configuration have recently proved sensitivity enhancement up to almost two orders of magnitude. Furthermore, the symmetry breaking related to grating rotation allows exploiting the incident polarization, more easily controlled with respect to incidence wavelength and angles interrogation. The prototype will be designed to be integrated in water distribution or HVAC systems in order to demonstrate its feasibility in industrially relevant fields and to open new applications and new market opportunities. POSEIDON project aims to address new solutions in this relevant health and safety societal challenge.

The aim of the AD-WINE project is to offer the opportunity for researchers from academic and industrial backgrounds to exchange knowledge and work together, in order to develop a common project in the field of anaerobic digestion and environmental solutions applied to the wine sector. This industry, which processes millions of tons of grapes every year, has consequences on the environment. The nature of the pollution generated by wineries is mainly organic, but mineral residues, earth, grease, detergents and disinfectants, toxic exogenous contaminants located in the grapes are also generated. This project aims to develop an anaerobic treatment system, using high performance digesters adapted to the treatment of medium size wineries effluents. The development of such digesters would help to lower the energy and operation costs of the plant, as well as significantly reducing the production of sludge and residues, and allowing a better valorisation of by-products and biogas. Thanks to the participation and exchange of personnel, the AD-WINE project partners will create an effective network of research and will collaborate in order to study this treatment system and develop a prototype. This will offer wineries an alternative to other current ways of treating water, offering countless environmental and economical advantages, and would allow the wine sector to comply with the legislation and the European objectives in terms of production of renewable energies. By participating in this project, the non-commercial research participants will have the opportunity to give a practical and commercial value to their research, whilst for the participating SME, it is the chance to gain knowledge on cutting edge technology and to develop innovative products, enhancing its growth and expansion prospects.
