I3A - Instituto de Investigación en Ingeniería de Aragón

Horizon 2020


The I3A actively participates (leading and participating as partners) in European Projects since the 5th Framework Program of the EU and continues working with enthusiasm to increase its participation in the current Horizon Framework Program 2020, feeling especially proud to host three ERC researchers.

Please see our research lines to find the topics on which the I3A can collaborate with your company or organization. We will be pleased to study the possibilities of participating jointly in European Projects, to do so you can communicate directly with our European Project Manager.

Below are some of the H2020 projects of the Institute, with which participation in the 3 pillars of the program is covered:
Is your heart aging well? A systems biology to characterize cardiac aging from the cell to the body surface (ERC Starting Grant): MODELAGE proposes a multi-scale,multi-factorial research that is expected to make an important step in the characterization of human heart aging at both the population and individual levels.

Intuitive editing of visual appearance from real-world datasets (ERC Consolidator Grant): Computer-generated imagery is now ubiquitous in our society, spanning fields such as games and movies, architecture, engineering, or virtual prototyping, while also helping create novel ones such as computational materials.

Predictive models and simulations in bone regeneration: a multiscale patient-specific approach: Bone injuries represent a high cost for the European health system, requiring corrective surgery to fix the bones. Traditionally, their treatment relies on classical orthopaedic techniques but, nowadays, it is possible to design and fabricate custom-made implants

To date, Wi-Fi has been a highly successful technology present in our day‐to‐day lives. However, Wi‐Fi access points have spread without any coordination. That is to say, we install access points wherever we think fit. In principle this is reasonable, but there are places where there is such a density of Wi‐Fi networks that broadband is significantly diminished. Navajas.

Developing Data-Intensive Cloud Applications with Iterative Quality Enhancements : Internet produces enormous quantities of information every day and exploiting this resource is vital for businesses and governments.  In the years to come we will see software programmes that take advantage of this wealth of information, so called “data-intensive applications”.

An integrated pilot line for micro-fabricated medical devices: The goal of the InForMed project is to establish an integrated pilot line for medical devices. The pilot line includes micro-fabrication, assembly and even the fabrication of smart catheters.

Interactive Grounded Language Understanding: Through a developmental approach where knowledge grows in complexity while driven by multimodal experience and language interaction with a human, we propose an agent that will incorporate models of dialogues, human emotions and intentions as part of its decision-making process.

Sustainable production of next generation biofuels from waste streams: WASTE2FUELS aims to develop next generation biofuel technologies capable of converting agrofood waste (AFW) streams into high quality biobutanol.

Advanced Carbon Materials from Biowaste: Sustainable Pathways to Drive Innovative Green Technologies: The main objective of our proposed Innovative Training Network is to develop new scientific knowledge, capability, technology, and commercial products for biomass-derived carbons (BCs); thus impacting the way that Europe uses and innovates with sustainable carbon materials.
