Seventh Framework Programme

Involvement of the Institute of life sciences Frédéric Joliot in EU programmes.

Published on 8 June 2020


, of which we are coordinators (SIMOPRO),
is an European project that aims to discover innovative therapeutic molecules from the exploration of the diversity of animal venoms.


The project FAST (Food Allergy Specific Therapy) aims to develop a safe and effective treatment against food allergies, especially fish and fruits.



NANOGENOTOX aims to facilitate the safety assessment (safety) of manufactured nanomaterials by characterizing their potential genotoxic hazard.


EURATRANS is an Europe-wide functional genomics project for translational research in rats.


LIVIMODE is a research consortium that develops imaging agents to investigate the molecular origins of disease.


The coordination and support action PERMED on personalized medicine was launched to coordinate efforts between key European stakeholders, to foster synergies and avoid duplication or competition, to ensure maximum transparency and openness and to prepare Europe to be leading edge of global research in this area.



HARVEST (Marie Curie training networks, ITN): from light to harvest or control of the efficiency of light use in plants and algae.


CHAARM is the acronym for "Combined Highly Active Anti-Retroviral Microbicides". In other words, the goal of the project is to develop new combinations of microbicides that can be applied locally to reduce HIV transmission during sex.


KINDRED aims to create a unique and powerful platform for the discovery of anti-trypanosomatid drugs (parasitic diseases) carried by laboratories to the clinic.



SOLARH2 brings together 12 world-class European laboratories to develop new ways of producing solar fuel, in our case hydrogen, from very abundant and truly inexhaustible resources such as water and solar energy.



Cell factories "genetically modified" (Code-engineered new-to-nature) for innovative bio-production and enhanced safety.



The emerging challenges of climate change and food security require new insights into how stress impacts seed quality as well as a reassessment of optimal storage conditions. ECOSEED tackles these challenges by bringing together a group of recognized European experts in seed science and converging science to characterize seed quality and resilience to disturbance.



Conception of new oral nano drugs : to carry therapeutic macromolecules through the intestinal barrier.



Nanomedicine for targeted imaging and treatment of atherothrombosis: development and initial clinical feasibility.



The project NanoMILE aims to establish a fundamental understanding of the interaction mechanisms between nanomaterials and the environment or living systems, throughout the life cycle of nanomaterials and in a wide range of targets. The project will identify critical properties (physicochemical descriptors) that confer the ability to induce damage in the biological system, a key point to consider in the production of nanomaterials ('safety by design').


BIOCHEMLIG (Marie Curie actions, ITN) : this project describes new approaches for the discovery of biocompatible and chemically specific ligation reactions. The aim is to develop new ligation processes with high efficiency, wide field of application, high chemical selectivity and high yields.
