Nanosensors based on nanomaterials (NANOBIOSENS)

The primary objective of this proposal is to bring together an international and interdisciplinary group of research teams who have different expertise areas to share the knowledge of different elements for building nano-biosensors. The development of future devices requires controlled assembly and placement of individual and/or multiple nano building blocks into the desired locations. By the accomplishment of this research proposal, the advantages of integration of nanomaterials into the structure of biosensors will be feasible. It is expected that the nanomaterial assembled biosensor structures will show an enhanced sensitivity due to the high surface area, higher porosity, and adjusted surface energy. In this research proposal, there are six participants from six countries with different expertise areas in the field of chemical engineering, biomedical engineering, materials science, physics, chemistry, and biology. Different pieces of work will thus be constructed into each other to first of all study their “separate” roles in that assembled piece of work. The international and interdisciplinary group of research team who came together is composed of Turkey, France, Ukraine, Canada, United States and (Rep. of) Korea. The estimated time of the project is 36 months. The proposed programme consists of three stages. STAGE 1 consists of shortly “synthesis of nanomaterials and their controlled assembly and organization of Si wafer substrates”. STAGE 2 is composed of the “biofunctionalization” of these materials built in STAGE 1 and the building a biosensor out of the assembled materials. STAGE 3 will focus on the “field tests” to see how affective these biosensors are working. Six trainings, three general meetings and three workshops are being planned for this research proposal in order to share all the knowledge and information gained throughout the work and to form the basis of long lasting collaborations.

The primary objective of this proposal is to carry the results, knowledge, and international collaboration gained throughout our first project (NANOBIOSOENS) that was conducted as a part of IRSES call in the last 3 years to the next level, which will focus on nanodevices and advanced applications. The proposed research project is focused on two different applications, main one being on biosensors and bioelectronics and the other one on potential solar energy science. The results obtained during NANOBIOSENS ...
Systemic seismic vulnerability and risk analysis for buildings, lifeline networks and infrastructures safety gain (SYNER-G)
Yakut, Ahmet(2013)
SYNER-G is research project which has the following main goals: (1) To elaborate appropriate, in the European context, fragility relationships for the vulnerability analysis and loss estimation of all elements at risk, for buildings, building aggregates, utility networks (water, waste water, energy, gas), transportation systems (road, railways, harbors) as well as complex medical care facilities (hospitals) and fire-fighting systems. (2) To develop social and economic vulnerability relationships for quantif...
Flow-Regime-Based Inflow-Performance Relationships of Unconventional Fractured Reservoirs
Al-Rbeawi, Salam (Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), 2020-08-01)
The main objective of this paper is to develop a new approach for constructing the inflow-performance relationships (IPRs) of unconventional reservoirs. The proposed approach focuses on using transient- and pseudosteady-state-flow regimes in developing integrated analytical models for wellhead deliverability and wellbore-pressure decline considering the two wellbore conditions, constantsandface-flow rate and constant wellbore pressure. The motivation is to reduce the uncertainties in predicting current and ...
SeaDataCloud - Further developing the pan-European infrastructure for marine and ocean data management (SeaDataCloud)
Kıdeyş, Ahmet Erkan(2020-11-31)
The SeaDataNet pan-European infrastructure has been developed by NODCs and major research institutes from 34 countries. Over 100 marine data centres are connected and provide discovery and access to data resources for all European researchers. Moreover, SeaDataNet is a key infrastructure driving several portals of the European Marine Observation and Data network (EMODnet), initiated by EU DG-MARE for Marine Knowledge, MSFD, and Blue Growth. SeaDataNet complements the Copernicus Marine Environmental Monitori...
Nanotechnology research in Turkey: A university-driven achievement
Beyhan, Berna; Pamukcu, Mehmet Teoman (Science And Technology Policies Research Center, Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey), 2011)
We deal with nanotechnology research activities in Turkey. Based on publication data retrieved from ISI Web of SSCI database, the main actors and the main characteristics of nanotechnology research in Turkey are identified. Following a brief introduction to nanoscience and nanotechnology research, it goes on with a discussion on nanotechnology related science and technology policy efforts in developing countries and particularly in Turkey. Then using bibliometric methods and social network analysis techniqu...
