Mental retardation (MR) is a highly heterogeneous disorder and is of genetic origin in about 50% of the cases. The objectives of the CHERISH project are to: to develop a standardized approach for MR diagnosis through clinical workshops and courses; to create a large data-base of patients with clinically well defined MR, both syndromic and non-syndromic; identify cryptic genomic rearrangements through molecular cytogenetic analysis; sequence MR genes and analyze the molecular epidemiology of MR in Eastern European populations ; develop diagnostic tools for recurrent/common mutations; identify new MR genes in X-linked and autosomal recessive forms of the disorder; increase awareness on the possible genetic origin of MR and implications for novel therapeutic strategies. The project partners will create a large collection of samples and a database from MR patients.

Chemo- and bio-sensors, embedded in the mobile robots will be developed and used for monitoring in real time physical parameters and pollutants in water bodies. Enhanced mathematical models will be developed for simulating the pollutants transport and processes in rivers, lakes and sea.
The aim of the Project is to develop an exhaustive model to disentangle the genetic bases of a complex disease using population genetic epidemiology as a methodological tool. EH was chosen as the disease model, both because of long-term experience in investigating the genetics of EH and because the cardiovascular complications remain the major cause of death in the EU. Its impact in term of cost and disability are a devastating burden for patients, for their relatives and for the human potential of the EU. Designing a comprehensive genetic epidemiological model of complex traits will also help to translate genetic findings into improved diagnostic accuracy and new strategies for early detection, prevention and eventually personalised treatment of a complex trait.

Towards a Topography of Tolerance and Equal Respect. A comparative study of policies for the distribution of public spaces in culturally diverse societies. Tolerance has been increasingly invoked as the inspiring ideal of a number of social policies in European democracies. Appeals to tolerance have animated especially the political debates on those policies addressed to accommodate minorities requests. Among such requests those for the allocation of public spaces have recently acquired pride of place in the political agendas of many European and extra-European countries (e.g. the allocation of space for Roma sites; Muslims requests to build places of worship and housing policies for migrants).
