Theme 1: Integrating safety and environmental sustainability impacts of bio-based solutions
The specific challenge of this theme is to develop reliable, validated tools, methodologies, standards, and approaches that increase knowledge about how to quantitatively measure, predict, and integrate human health and/or environmental safety risks and environmental sustainability effects of bio-based solutions.
Theme 2: Disentangling insulin resistance
The specific challenge of this theme is to improve the understanding of the mechanisms and molecules regulating insulin sensitivity and the development of insulin resistance with a stratified human-centric point of departure, in order to develop candidate therapies targeting insulin resistance.
Theme 3: Novel or emerging technologies for sustainable and continuous energy supply
The specific challenge of this theme is to advance fundamental knowledge and develop novel or emerging technologies for sustainable and continuous energy supply that complement intermittent energy supply forms, thereby contributing to a decarbonised and secure energy system in the future.
