EELIAD

The “European Eel Investigation and Assessment of their Decline” project (or EELIAD), funded under the seventh framework programme (FP7) which is a grant funding programme, provides scientific knowledge to allow the recovery of European eel populations. The initiative is characterised by scientific collaboration and the deployment of networking activities to establish a network of excellence throughout Europe. It aims to increase the understanding of the behaviour, biology and ecology of eels, particularly by bringing together numerous external (i.e. environmental) and internal (i.e. biological) factors that may influence their migration. To reach this goal, large-scale monitoring and sensing technologies, such as automatized and remote sensing devices supported by numerical models, are being used.

SENSORGAN

Based on the need to find measures to protect historical organs, the SENSORGAN project (Sensor system for detection of harmful environments for pipe organs) has developed an automatized and remote sensing system. Church organs are large and complex pieces containing several different types of materials. Various types of wood, leather, brass, iron and pipe metals put together a sensitive combination when it comes to changes in the indoor environment. Each of the organ parts responds differently to a change in the indoor climate of the church and under certain microclimatic conditions, the organ parts will be harmed and it might be unplayable.

FLOW-AID

By far, the largest demand for the world's water comes from agriculture, as more than two-thirds of the water withdrawn from the earth's rivers, lakes and aquifers is used for irrigation. A declining supply of water and a decrease in water quality are two of the main problems faced by the agricultural sector today, placing enormous pressure on agricultural policy-makers and farmers. 

RAMWASS

The RAMWASS Decision Support System (RAMWASS_DSS) is a modelling tool for assessing risks and managing the negative impacts caused by global change and human activities on the water/sediment/soil system at river basin scale in fluvial ecosystems.
