The National University of Life and Environmental science of Ukraine is a leading public university in the field of agriculture in Ukraine; it is located in Kiev.Established in 1898, prior to 1992 the institution was named the Ukrainian Agricultural Academy . In the years 1992–2008 it went by the name of National Agricultural University . Wikipedia.

Algebraic equations of the first order describing the amplitude–frequency response of a nonlinear vibration isolation system with a quasi-isochronous roller damper are derived. A numerical experiment is conducted using these equations. A combined graphical/numerical method to find the optimal settings for this damper is proposed. It is established that the natural frequencies of the optimally tuned damper do not coincide in the nonlinear and linear cases. It is shown that the new quasi-isochronous roller damper can substantially decrease the amplitude of forced vibrations © 2015, Springer Science+Business Media New York.

The effect of constraints for the travel of the working body of a roller damper on its tuning parameters is studied. A simple procedure for determining the tuning parameters of a roller damper with such constraints is proposed. A numerical experiment is conducted to obtain nomograms representing the dependence of the tuning parameters on the constraints. It is shown that the tuning parameters of the roller damper differ considerably from those of the roller without the constraints © 2015, Springer Science+Business Media New York.

The amplitude-frequency characteristic equations of a nonlinear vibroprotection system with an isochronous roller damper are obtained in the first approximation. On the basis of these equations, we carry out a numerical experiment and propose a numerical-graphical method for determining the optimal tuning parameters of such a damper. It is shown that the natural damper tuning frequency in the nonlinear setting does not coincidewith the natural damper tuning frequency in the linear setting. Numerical analysis is also used to determine that the maximum amplitudes of the bearing body in the nonlinear problem exceed themaximumamplitudes of the bearing body in the linear problem. It is shown that the use of the new isochronous roller damper permits dramatically decreasing the forced vibration amplitudes of bearing bodies. © 2015, Allerton Press, Inc.

BIO CIRCLE will extend the network of National Contact Points for the FP7 theme Food, Agriculture and Fisheries and Biotechnology (BIO NCP) to National Information Points (NIP) from Third Countries over a two year period. The European Commission needs to implement the bilateral Scientific & Technological Agreements signed with Third Countries (TC), for increasing their participation in FAFB FP7 and strengthening the collaboration between European and TC researchers. The main focus of the project will be on identifying, sharing and implementing good practices between NCPs and NIPs. The expected results of BIO CIRCLE are: 1. Capacities built for Third Country BIO NIPs (through SWOT analysis, training of NIPs and twinning); 2. Strengthened consortium building in FAFB international cooperation projects (through mapping of Third Country research potential and the organisation of 2 international Brokerage Events); 3. Capacities built for Third Country Researchers to participate in FP7 (through preparation of specific training materials, training and networking with EU researchers); 4. Strengthened identification, development and sharing of Good Practices to enhance cooperation between the NCP and NIP networks (through 5 Regional Benchmarking Workshops, a Common Benchmarking Workshop and the design of a Good Practices Guide). The 6% of budget is foreseen to grant researchers from TCs to attend the 2 International Brokerage Events. The 5 BIO NCP partners of BIO CIRCLE led by APRE will assure the successful implementation of the project. The 18 NIPs partners of BIO CIRCLE will be embraced in this circle of activities aimed at ensuring quality and dynamism in implementing the Scientific & Technological Agreements between the EU and Third Countries. BIO CIRCLE will work in synergy with and be closely linked to the BIO-NET project, the complete NCP FAFB network.

The main objective of BIO CIRCLE 2 is to foster the knowledge base about FP7 FAFB & the networking capacities of Third Country researchers in order to reinforce their participation in FP7 projects. 3 project goals are distinguished: 1.Disseminate information effectively to Third Country researchers; 2.Organise information days and training for Third Country researchers; 3.Provide Third Country researchers with efficient networking opportunities. 5 European plus 16 Third Country partners (International Cooperation Partner Countries ICPC and Industrialised Countries) will all be involved in the activities. Apart from Kazakhstan and Thailand all involved countries (and the African continent represented by FARA) have signed a bilateral S&T agreement with the EU. The expected impacts are supported by various activities: Enhanced awareness of the Third Country researchers on the FP7 FAFB: WP2 will develop the regional strategies for the Third Country partners. Increased Third Country researchers participation in EU projects: WP3 will organise at least 2 trainings for Third Country researchers at national and regional level, 3 trainings of Third Country BIO NCPs and the organisation of 1 Regional Event per World Region. Strengthened collaborations with Third Countries signatories of bilateral S&T agreements with the EU: WP4 will implement networking activities for Third Country researchers, including brokerage events and working visits of Third Country researchers to EU research institutes and vice versa. Finally WP5 on dissemination activities will increase the awareness of European researchers about the international cooperation in FP7 FAFB. The impact of the activities will be further maximised by: 1.involving other countries that are not partners through a regional approach; 2.linking the BIO CIRCLE 2 activities to the activities of related INCO projects; 3.involving industrialised countries that are global S&T leaders in FAFB related research.
