Assessment of Carrying Capacity for Tourists in Nature Protected Areas (ACCTA)

Principal Investigator: Tarzan Legović

The aim of the interdisciplinary project is to improve environmental management and increase conservation and social benefits of nature protected areas. We propose to do this by developing a novel, comprehensive method of calculating carrying capacity of protected areas, and demonstrating the method for two protected areas of divergent environmental and socio-economic attributes.

BALlast Water MAnagement System For Adriatic Sea Protection – BALMAS

Principal Investigator: Romina Kraus

The IPA Adriatic Cross-border Programme aims at strengthening the cooperation and sustainable development of the Adriatic region, through the realisation of the initiatives referring to three priority axes: economic, social and institutional cooperation.

The general BALMAS objective is to establish a common cross-border system linking all Adriatic research, experts and national responsible authorities to avoid the unwanted risks to the environment and humans from the feasible impacts of HAOP (Harmful Aquatic Organisms and Patogens) through the potential transfer by Ballast Waters (BW) and sediments. An early warning system (EWS) about the presence of HAOP in ports, as well as a decision support system (DSS) for faster and effective decision making on BWM to responsible authorities will be developed. By developing a joint Adriatic BWM DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEM (DSS), BWM Plan and Strategy, BALMAS will ensure uniform BWM requirements to ease shipping and at the same time to maximize environmental and economical protection of all sea users.

Effective modulation of ZnO band gap and the modulation mechanism study (ZnO band gap study)

Principal Investigator: Jincheng Fan

With a wide band gap of 3.37eV and a large exciton banding energy of 60meV at room temperature, ZnO has been considered as a promising material for optoelectronic devices, such as short-wavelenghth light-emitting diodes and laser diodes.

Low-temperature molecular dynamics of systems exhibiting lattice disorder probed by ESR

Low-temperature molecular dynamics of systems exhibiting lattice disorder probed by ESR

Principal Investigator: Marina Ilakovac Kveder

This project aims to improve the understanding of dynamical properties of disordered systems by fully exploiting the advantage of embedded paramagnetic centres through focusing on their relaxation behaviour, which bears the information about the local frustration of the environment.

Lysosomal dysfunction as a common mechanism of neurodegenerative diseases

Lysosomal dysfunction as a common mechanism of neurodegenerative diseases

Principal Investigator: Silva Katušić Hećimović

Using a lysosomal disorder NPC as a model, the goal of this project is to investigate a role of lysosomal impairment on accumulation of amyloid-beta peptide (Abeta) and alpha-synuclein (a-syn), the two characteristic features in the pathogenesis of AD and PD.
