JOINT RESEARCH PROJECTS University of Innsbruck - Great Britain
Faculty members form the University of Innsbruck are already highly involved in a variety of joint research projects with colleagues from Great Britain.
BRITINN wants to put these joint research projects on the forefront and make them more visible for the university community, the research partners and the general interested public.
BRITINN presents these projects and generates a joint database [link zu Projekten]. The list of projects in this database does not claim to be exhaustive or complete. We encourage members of the University of Innsbruck to provide us with information on ongoing and planned projects, so we can add them to this successful list.
The Alpine Seed Conservation and Research Network is funded by the David and Claudia Harding Foundation, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (UK) and consists of six partners: Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (United Kingdom); Università di Pavia, Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra e dell’Ambiente (Italy); Conservatoire Botanique National Alpin, Gap-Chambery (France); The Conservatoire et Jardin Botaniques de la Ville de Geneve (Switzerland); The University of Graz, Institute of Plant Sciences and Botanical Garden; University of Innsbruck, Institute of Botany and Botanical Garden.

The Research Institute for Biomedical Aging Research has four EU-Projects with partners in Great Britain.
The collaborative project „Advanced Immunization Technologies“ (Acronym: ADITEC) is a high impact initiative (HIP) for better immunization, which started in October 2011.
Mopact (Mobilising The Potential Of Active Ageing in Europe) is a project funded by the European Commission which is researching demographic developments and their impact on economic and social fields.
The collaborative project “Utility of omic-based biomarkers in characterizing older individuals at risk for frailty, its progression to disability and general consequences to health and well-being - The FRAILOMIC Initiative” (Acronym FRAILOMIC) addresses a topic of high importance in the field of ageing research and started on January 1st, 2013.
The objective of the project is to define the extent to which immunosenescence comprises changes in levels of specific immune cell types and to detect genetic and non-genetic factors that drive these changes.
