Programmes ERC   Enhancing EU R&I  

The ERC conference on Citizen Science and Frontier Research took stock of the activities regarding citizen science which have been undertaken as part of ERC or other EU-funded projects.

During the conference among others Kris Verheyen, one of the heads of the Forest & Nature Lab at Universiteit Gent and PI of the ERC Consolidator grant PASTFORWARD and ERC Proof of Concept grant UnderSCORE, shared citizen science projects on agrobiodiversity. Sarah Lebeer, head of the Lab of Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology at Universiteit Antwerpen, shared the Isala activities as part of the Starting grant project Lacto-Be.  

The breadth and diversity of the citizen science activities becomes clear from the conference (recordings), the factsheet with a brief overview of the ERC’s portfolio on citizen science and the showcase of citizen science by ERC grantees and other EU funded projects.

ROOT - Rolling Out OSNMA for the secure synchronization of Telecom networks

The ROOT project obtained funding under Horizon 2020 topic ‘EGNSS applications fostering societal resilience and protecting the environment’. The project, which ran from November 2020 to July 2022,  aimed to demonstrate the benefit of Galileo OSNMA signal to increase the robustness of critical telecom infrastructures.

The Flanders-based company Septentrio contributed substantially to completing this objective together with the other ROOT partners. The results of the project partially close a gap in the security of telecommunication networks dependent on satellite-derived time, with indirect benefits in curbing illegal attempts to disrupt network services.
