This project aims to promote a widespread use of inquiry-based science teaching (IBST) in primary and secondary schools. Our major innovation is to connect IBST in school with the world of work making science more meaningful for young European students and motivating their interest in careers in S & T. To this end, we will run training courses in which pre- and in-service teachers will learn about IBST supported by teachers from vocational education, representatives from industry and informal learning. They will develop inquiry tasks in vocational contexts, leading to a large European task repository. Teachers will experience IBST themselves and through iterative cycles of implementation followed by reflection integrate this into their practice. To ensure widespread participation we will use a pyramid model in which we will work with a small number of teachers first each of which will then work with further teachers. Additionally we will develop an innovative interactive e-learning platform. To profit from the international perspective offered by the project teachers will be connected with existing European networks and our own thematic network on IBST through (virtual) meetings, a forum and the task repository. We will adopt a systemic approach to dissemination working with teachers and additionally parents, students, school authorities and policy makers. National and European advisory panels will bring together stakeholders to advise partners throughout the project; dialogue with policy makers will be facilitated by workshops and policy papers. To ensure effectiveness our work will be informed by a detailed analysis of the educational systems in partner nations. We plan to reach more than 65.000 teachers directly and 800.000 teachers indirectly (via stakeholders, media). Throughout, our work will be subject to rigorous evaluation and measures of quality assurance that will be both summative and formative in informing the progress of the project.

PASTEUR4OA will support the aim of encouraging the development of matching policies on open access and open data in the European Union according to the European Commissions recent Recommendation onAccess to and preservation of scientific information (July 2012) and in view of maximizing alignment with the Horizon 2020 policy on access to the research funded by the Commission. The project will help develop and/or reinforce open access strategies and policies at the national level and facilitate their coordination among all Member States. It will build a network of centres of expertise in Member States that will develop a coordinated and collaborative programme of activities in support of policymaking at the national level under the direction of project partners. The project will build on an already existing project, Mediterranean Open Access Network (MedOANet) capitalizing on its work and an already established network within Mediterranean Europe. Further, it will take advantage of the experience and extensive networks of organizations such as EOS (Enabling Open Scholarship), JISC (Joint Information Systems Committee), SparcEUROPE, LIBER (Association of European Research Libraries), EIFL, as well as prominent funding organizations that participate in the consortium, to secure a European-wide engagement of bodies of authority of the Member States with the projects aims and extend its impact beyond Member States to neighbouring Accession States. More specifically, PASTEUR4OA will engage key national policy-makers, namely funders and research institution officials with decision-making power, in order to help them in improving and/or developing coordinated policies on open access in line with the Commissions recommendations and Horizon 2020 policies. The project will map current policies and their effectiveness to those key-policy makers and bring them together in four regional meetings, as well as the projects final meeting. It will encourage systematic exchange of model policies and best practices to achieve consistency across Member States in terms of Open Access policy and will produce briefing papers and other advocacy materials appropriate for policy-makers to be distributed in all countries and translated in as many languages as possible.

Human cystic echinococcosis (CE), one of the most widespread helminthic zoonoses, is a chronic disease caused by infection with the larval stage of the tapeworm Echinococcus granulosus. This disease is highly endemic in some southern (Spain and Italy), eastern (Bulgaria and Romania) European countries and associated (Turkey) countries, where it still represents a major health and economic problem. In endemic areas the annual incidence of CE ranges from 1 to 200 per 100,000 inhabitants and 2-3 million cases are globally estimated. Case series and small clinical trials show a mortality rate of 2-4% for CE, but this increases markedly with substandard treatment and care. The diagnosis of human CE is mainly based on imaging techniques and serological confirmation. Clinical decision making is difficult and the natural history of the cyst is still poorly known. CE is chronic, complex and still neglected. For these reasons the main objectives of HERACLES are: Identify by ultrasound screening the population affected by CE in endemic rural areas of CEE countries; Create CEE national registries for surveillance of CE; Establish a representative bio-bank of genetic Egc isolates and blood/serum/plasma samples; Validate new molecular-based POC-LOC kits for immunological surveillance, diagnosis and follow-up; Identify factor/s associated with CE response to therapy or lack thereof through investigation of host-parasite interplay (parasite virulence vs human immunity); Increase drug bioavailability in an in vivo model, decreasing the length of antiparasitic (ABZ based) treatment of CE and synthesize a new enantiomeric drug based on ABZ. The project stakeholders, especially the rural populations in which CE is endemic, as well as SMEs, will be engaged as an integral part of the project. Special events to increase general awareness of CE and training activities for local health care providers will be organized.

Journal of Heat Transfer | Year: 2014
This paper is devoted to the study of heat and mass transfer characteristics of some nanofluid flows past an infinite flat plate moving vertically. Some water-based nanofluids containing copper (Cu), silver (Ag), copper oxide (CuO), alumina (Al2O3), and titanium oxide (TiO2) are analytically analyzed taking into consideration the thermal radiation effect for two types of temperature boundary conditions. The physically significant properties like skin friction coefficient and Nusselt number are easy to conceive from the derived exact analytical expressions for the velocity and temperature profiles. Results are believed to constitute a tool to verify the validity of numerical solutions for more complicated transient free/forced convection nanofluid flow problems. Copyright © 2014 by ASME.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common reproductive and metabolic disorder. Patients with PCOS present with clinical signs of androgen excess (ie, hirsutism and acne), menstrual irregularities, and infertility. Combined oral contraceptive (OC) pills are the first-line medical therapy for the long-term management of PCOS. Containing a combination of estrogen and progestin, OCs restore regular menses, improve androgen excess, and provide effective contraception and protection from endometrial cancer. The benefits of hormonal contraception outweigh the risks in the vast majority of women with PCOS. However, concerns have been raised about potential adverse cardiovascular and metabolic effects of OCs. Currently available evidence indicates an increased relative risk of venous thrombosis associated with OCs varying among different formulations. Arterial thrombosis risk attributable to OCs does not appear to be significantly increased in young nonsmoking women. OC use might be associated with increased risk of diabetes in morbidly obese women with PCOS with severe insulin resistance. A tailored clinical approach to oral contraception in women with PCOS requires individualized risk stratification and management by determination of each PCOS patient's personal cardiometabolic risk profile at baseline and during follow-up. Before prescribing an OC, clinicians should document individual risk factors including age, smoking, obesity, any degree of glucose intolerance including prediabetes and diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, thrombophilia, and personal or family history of a venous thromboembolic event.

Classical Nusselt's condensate falling film theory is extended in this paper to the case when the base fluid is added ingredients of some frequently used popular nanoparticles. The resulting mixture, i.e, nanofluids, is analytically investigated either when the nanoparticles are uniformly distributed across the condensate boundary layer which is the most used model (single phase) in the literature, or when the concentration of nanoparticles through the film is allowed to vary from the wall to the outer edge of the condensate film in the light of modified Buongiorno's nanofluid model (multi-phase) incorporating mechanisms of the Brownian and thermophoretic diffusion. In both theoretical cases, momentum and energy equations are solved analytically to deduce the flow and heat transport phenomena. As a result, the influences of employed nanofluids on the flow and heat of the condensate film are determined exactly. When the concentration of nanoparticles is assumed constant both models are shown to coincide. Otherwise, effects of nanofluids as compared to the regular fluid on the velocity profiles, the mass flow rate, the thickness of the condensate film and the Nusselt number are easy to conceive from both single and multi-phase models. In particular, the theoretical treatment in both models enables us to understand the heat transfer enhancement feature of the nanofluids models. When the diffusion parameter is increased in the multi-phase model, more enhancement in the rate of heat transfer is observed. In agreement with the experimental evidences, the water-based nanofluid with nanoparticles Ag is the best heat transferring mixture. © 2015 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.

The nanofluid boundary layer flow over a rotating disk is the main concern of the present paper. Unlike the traditional Von Karman problem in which a Newtonian regular fluid is assumed, water-based nanofluids containing nanoparticle volume fraction of Cu, Ag, CuO, Al2O3 and TiO2 are taken into account. The governing equations of motion are reduced to a set of nonlinear differential equations by means of the conventional similarity transformations which are later treated by a spectral Chebyshev collocation numerical integration scheme. The flow and temperature fields as well as the shear stress and heat transfer characteristics are computed for certain values of the nanoparticle volume fraction. A comparative analysis is made in terms of shear stress and cooling properties of considered nanofluids. A mathematical analysis is eventually provided to prove why the nanofluids are advantageous as far as the heat transfer enhancement is concerned. Although the physical features highly rely on the type of the considered nanoparticles, it is found that the heat transfer is greatly enhanced by addition of nanofluid Cu. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

Autoimmunity Reviews | Year: 2013
Hepatotoxicity is an expected side effect of tumour necrosis factor-α (anti-TNF-α) blocking agents including, infliximab, etanercept and adalimumab. Although mild to moderate elevations of liver enzymes have been recognised after the use of these agents, severe hepatitis is rarely reported. Reactivation of viral hepatitis and drug induced liver injury is two main causes of liver dysfunction in these patients. A broad spectrum, ranging from minor immunological alterations to systemic autoimmune disease, has been reported during treatment with anti-TNF-α. Therefore, in recent studies TNF-α blocking agents have been considered a potential cause of drug induced autoimmune hepatitis. Taking into account the advances in the field of hepatology, this review summarizes the general characteristics of anti-TNF-α induced liver injury and autoimmune hepatitis. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.

In this paper we investigate structure of the solutions for the MHD flow and heat transfer of an electrically conducting, viscoelastic fluid past a stretching vertical surface in a porous medium, by taking into account the diffusion thermo (Dufour) and thermal-diffusion (Soret) effects. It is shown that the porosity, magnetic, convection and concentration buoyancy effects can be combined within a new parameter called here as a porous magneto-convection concentration parameter. Heat transfer and concentration analysis are also carried out for a boundary process. The physical parameters influencing the flow field are viscoelasticity, porous magneto-convection concentration and suction/injection, and those affecting the temperature field are Prandtl and Dufour numbers, and further affecting the concentration field are Prandtl, Lewis and Dufour numbers. Such parameters greatly alter the behavior of solutions from unique to multiple and determine the boundaries of existence or nonexistence of solutions. The features of the skin friction coefficient, Nusselt number and Sherwood number are also easy to gain from the derived equations. © 2013 Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
