The bound state of two massive constituent gluons is studied in the potential approach. The relativistic quasi-classical wave equation with the QCD-inspired scalar potential is solved by the quasi-classical method in the complex plane. Glueball masses are calculated with the help of the universal mass formula. The hadron Regge trajectories are given by the complex non-linear function in the whole region of the invariant variable t. The Chew-Frautschi plot of the leading glueball trajectory, α P(t), has the properties of a t-channel Pomeron, which is dual to the glueball states in the s channel. The imaginary part of the Pomeron is also calculated. © 2012 Springer-Verlag / Società Italiana di Fisica.

We have developed a process for producing high-adhesion metallic coatings which enables the fabrication of laser diode (LDs) structures with improved performance parameters on highly effective natural and synthetic diamond heat sinks (DHS). The mounting of CW laser diodes on DHS by a non-optimized process increases their power output by up to a factor of 2, considerably extends the linear (working) field of their power current characteristic and increases their slope efficiency by a factor of 1.5 - 2 relative to that of LDs on copper heat sinks. Optimization of the mounting process increases the slope efficiency only in the case of copper bases. The use of diamond heat sink bases extends the drive current range of pulsed diode bars by a factor of 2 - 3 and enables them to operate at more than one order of magnitude longer pump pulse durations (up to milliseconds) when the pulse repetition rate exceeds 10 Hz. © 2016 The Authors.

There are a lot of questions about genetic effects of ionizing radiation, the main one is does ionizing radiation induce mutations in humans? There is no direct evidence that exposure of parents to radiation leads to excess heritable disease in offspring. What is the difference between human and other species in which radiation induced mutations are easily registered? During evolution germ cell selection ex vivo has been changed to a selection in vivo and we cannot observe such selection of radiation damaged cells in human. Low radiation doses - are they harmful or beneficial? The "hormesis" phenomenon as well as radioadaptive response proves positive effects of low radiation dose. Can analysis of chromosomal aberration rate in lymphocytes be used for dosimetry? Many uncontrolled factors may be responsible for significant mistakes of this method. Why did evolution preserve the bystander effect? This paper is discussion one and its goal is to pay attention on some effects of ionizing radiation. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

The overall aim of the SUAFRI-EPC project is to bridge the gap between Agri-Food research and innovation in Eastern Partnering Countries (EPC), by bringing together all actors of the knowledge value chain and raising their awareness on how to uptake research results into innovation. The SUAFRI-EPC is supporting the Agri-Food sector and community in EPC by developing the basis for an efficient Research to Innovation - R2I process with the support of European partnering specialists. The project will consist in the following activities: Networking between Agri-Food actors: Mapping EPC Agri-Food actors at different level of the knowledge value chain and organise brokerage events; Analyse the potential for cooperation and knowledge transfer in the field; Exchange best practices in knowledge/technology transfer via a range of specific training courses ; Implement a R2I pilot project in three (3) targeted EPC countries with a European partner: - R2I Topic A in Armenia: Production methods to optimise economical and environmental sustainability in aquaculture and apiculture sectors; - R2I Topic B in Belarus: Development of consumer preferences for fish and seafood. - R2I Topic C in Georgia: Wine production optimisation using bio-technologies and zoning techniques. Innovation support services to EPC (and European) Agri-Food organisations willing to receive hands-on support for their RDI activities. The SUAFRI-EPC project aims also to cooperate with other European projects and initiatives targeting EPC countries, under Cluster joint activities. Cluster activities will consist in organising and contributing to joint event, exchange of information and support current projects and the successors of: BILAT-Ukr*aina, INCONET CA/SC and INCONET-EECA.

The overall aim of the SECURE-R2I project is to reinforce cooperation with Eastern Partnership Countries (EPC) on bridging the gap between research and innovation for Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge 6. Inclusive, Innovative and Secure Societies. The research domains encompassed by Inclusive, Innovative and Secure Societies are broad. From the perspective of FP7 thematic priorities, they include ICT; Security; Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials (NMP); and Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH). These research domains also form the basis of important economic sectors in the EPC, with many potential benefits for the EU, but which also need European support to increase their exploitation. Addressing this issue, the SECURE-R2I project will assist R&D and innovation (RDI) organisations in EPC via a range of knowledge and technology transfer activities with the support of European specialists. The activities include: Networking between EPC organisations involved in RDI for Societal Challenge 6: It consists in mapping EPC RDI organisations and organising brokerage events to stimulate cooperation; Analysing the tech transfer opportunities and bottlenecks of EPC organisations involved in RDI for Societal Challenge 6: It consists in surveying these organisations and holding discussions with representatives of government, industry, government and intermediary bodies; Exchanging best practices in knowledge/technology transfer via a range of specific training courses and intensive summer schools in Europe; Twinning via R2I pilot projects: Each EPC research partner in the consortium will twin with another consortium partner who will support them to implement a bilateral R2I pilot project; Providing innovation support services to selected, high-potential EPC (and European) RDI: The activities will consist in coaching and advisory services on innovation and tech-transfer.
