Le Club du Globule Rouge et du Fer:
is a French association of about 150 scientists and clinicians involved in the problems of hemoglobin, the red blood cell and hemoglobin disorders in general.

MPN&MPNr-Euronet : IRT-UN CHU Nantes France
Philadelphia-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) are clonal diseases characterized by chronic elevation of blood cell counts, splenomegaly and fibrosis of the bone marrow. In 2007, a group of European biologists decided to compare and share their experience in the new molecular assays designed to detect the mutations identified in MPN and in MPNr diseases. This first, informal network led to the creation in November 2009 of MPN&MPNr- EuroNet (COST Action BM0902).

TransCOST - AllBio Bioinformatics Group :
Bioinformatics has become a key part of modern biology. Handling and understanding vast bodies of biological data is only possible with the help of sophisticated mathematical analysis. A broad spectrum of bioinformatics tools has been developed across all areas of the life sciences.
AllBio is a Coordination Action funded under FP7 that coordinates the efforts for the generalisation and the broadening of the applicability of the many human-centric bioinformatics facilities to other areas of the life sciences.
Our first community building meeting was the 29-30 November 2012 in Amsterdam, where an overview of the AllBio project was presented and several projects informed us on their specific angles in the life sciences.

Bioencapsulation Research Group: more than a scientific association, it is a networking plateform. The BRG addressbook counts about 7000 persons, composed of more than 65 % industrials, and spread over more than 80 countries.

Previous achievements, closed projects

Ionic Liquids and Innovative Natural Polymer Materials
The aim of the project LIMPONAN is to study the use of ionic liquids and analogues as functional additives in starch, for the design of thermoplastic and composite materials.

Safe Tin Bread
The project SATIN aims at :

  • improving the quality of pan bread and rusk bread.
  • developing technologies resulting in a better control of the chemical risk associated to anti-stick coating of baking moulds and in a reduction of the baking energy.

Intensive Programme for Advanced Residue Analysis in Food.
The aim of IPARAF is to provide a thorough knowledge of regulation and the latest analytical chemistry techniques applied to food analysis, drawing on the experience and know-how of leading European actors in the field.

The BRAFRAGI program has been introduced by the 'Direction générale de l'enseignement et de la recherche (DGER), Ministère de l'alimentation, de l'agriculture et de la pêche (MAAP) and Ministère des affaires étrangères et européennes (MAEE)' for France, by 'Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior, CAPES)' for Brazil.
The general objective of this program is to promote, in the agronomic science, agrofood and veterinarian fields, bilateral cooperation projects for engineering education, mutual exchanges between engineer students and researcher-teachers, comparative studies, and cursus - teaching methods evaluationin both countries.

Rhibac :
Rhizobacteria for reduced fertiliser inputs in wheat, funded by the FP6 programme of the European Union. This project groups partners from 9 countries: Austria, Belgium, Brasil, Chile, France, Germany, Israel, Turkey, UK.

COST865 :
Bioencapsulation Multiscale Interaction Analysis, supported by COST, an intergovernmental framework for European Cooperation in Science and Technology, allowing the coordination of nationally-funded research on a European level. This project groups partners from 35 countries.
