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.

The objective of the project is to harmonise biomass resource assessments, focusing on the availability of biomass for energy in Europe and its neighbouring regions. This harmonisation will improve the consistency, accuracy and reliability of biomass assessments, which can serve the planning of a transition to renewable energy in the European Union. The project activities will include (i) the analysis of recently conducted biomass resource assessments, (ii) the analysis of policy backgrounds, sustainability criteria and user requirements, (iii) the analysis of currently applied methodologies, (iv) an inventory of data sources and ongoing activities aimed at improved data quality and accessibility, (v) a proposal for a harmonised biomass potential assessment methodology, (vi) an illustration and validation of the developed approach in case studies at EU-27, the Pan-European level and for select countries, (vii) an evaluation of the harmonised approach and if necessary the identification of priorities for further development. The major focus will be (1) on methodological and dataset harmonisations fostered by ongoing research of a multidisciplinary team of project participants and (2) on the opportunities of utilising both earth observation and terrestrial data for biomass assessments and the integration of multiple data sources. The relevant sectors that will be investigated are forestry, energy crops and residues from traditional agriculture and waste. The consortium will build on its complementary sectorial expertise, which will allow the production of sector-overarching studies, taking competitive and economic aspects into account. Intensive scientific cooperation and dissemination will comprise the discussion of its objectives, interim and final results with stakeholders including the EC DGs, EEA, Eurostat, UN/ECE, research, industry, national ministries and associated authorities and sectorial organisations (ren. energy, agriculture, forestry, waste)

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.

COMET will strengthen the pan-European research initiative on the impact of radiation on man and the environment by facilitating the integration of radioecological research. COMET will build upon the foundations laid by the European Radioecology Alliance (ALLIANCE) and the on-going FP7 STAR Network of Excellence in radioecology. By collaborating with the European platforms on nuclear and radiological emergency response (NERIS) and low dose risk research (MELODI), COMET will significantly aid preparation for the implementation of the Horizon 2020 umbrella structure for Radiation Protection. In close association with STAR and the ALLIANCE, COMET will take forward the development of a Strategic Research Agenda as the basis for developing innovative mechanisms for joint programming and implementation (JPI) of radioecological research. To facilitate and foster future integration under a common federating structure, research activities developed within COMET will be targeted at radioecological research needs that will help achieve priorities of the NERIS and MELODI platforms. These research activities will be initiated in collaboration with researchers from countries where major nuclear accidents have occurred. Flexible funds, unallocated to specific tasks at project initiation, have been included within the COMET budget to facilitate RTD activities identified through the JPI mechanisms developed that are of joint interest to the ALLIANCE, NERIS and MELODI. It will also strengthen the bridge with the non-radiation community. Furthermore, COMET will develop strong mechanisms for knowledge exchange, dissemination and training to enhance and maintain European capacity, competence and skills in radioecology. The COMET consortium has 13 partners, expanding from the organisations within the FP7 STAR project. In particular, COMET partners from countries which have experienced major nuclear accidents (i.e. Ukraine and Japan) and/or who hold Observatory sites.

Investigated the distribution of microsporidia Nosema ceranae-the pathogen of so-called «Asian» Nosema disease in the apiaries of Ukraine. Investigated 784 samples of bee's podmore in a large extent affected by Nosemosis, that have been sent by beekeepers for research from 11 regions of Ukraine (Kyiv, Poltava, Vinnytsia, Chernihiv, Zhytomyr, Sumy, Zaporizhia, Donetsk, Volyn, Lviv, Khmelnytsky) in 2014-2016. Microsporidia Nosema ceranae was found in 74.5 % of the analyzed bee samples, i. e. on prevalence it dominated the microsporidia Nosema apis. Clinical signs and course of Nosema disease in bee families, where been found microsporidia Nosema ceranae, were classic, namely the weak development of families in the spring, in some families-the presence of traces of diarrhea. © 2017 H.

The formation processes of a new delta-like object with a hydromorphic landscape in the upper part of the Kapchagai Reservoir on the Ili R.—an internal delta—are considered. The quantitative characteristics of the development of this delta are evaluated using data of Landsat-2, 5, and 7 space images over period 1975–2012. These processes were found to accelerate considerably in the wet year of 2012, and intense under-flooding and salinization of nearby lands were revealed in the Chilikskii alluvial fan on the southern wing of the Kapchagai delta. A consequence of this accumulative process was found to be the development of planar channel deformations of the Ili R. 30 km upstream the Kapchagai delta. © 2017, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

A new type of immune biosensor was proposed based on ISFET with CeO x instant of Si 3N 4 gate surface which promotes the sensitivity and stability of the analysis. This biosensor was used for the determination of Salmonella typhimurium in the model solution. It was demonstrated that the sensitivity of the analysis of salmonella was about 2-3cellsmL -1 with the maximal response up to 5×10 5cellsmL -1. The total time of the measurements can be reduced to 15-20min if the transducer surface was previously prepared and if one part of the specific antibodies are immobilized on it and the other one labeled by horse radish peroxidase is added to the analyzed solution. Each chip may be reused up to 5 times without signal decreasing after its treatment by 0.1M HCl for 5min followed by washing with 5mM phosphate buffer, pH7.5. To immobilize immune components the transducer surface was preliminary treated by cystamine with sequential application of glutaraldehyde for covalent binding of Staphylococcal protein A which provides the next immobilization of the specific antibodies with orientation towards the solution. © 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

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 low-frequency vibrations of a vibration isolation system of rigid bodies (roller shock absorber and carrying body) under external harmonic loading are considered. The working surface of the absorber has the form of a brachistochrone. The equations describing the slip-free motion of the absorber over the hinged roller and the motion of the carrying body are derived. A graphical method for optimizing the parameters of the roller absorber as a component of the vibration isolation system is proposed © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc.
