HORIZON 2020
H2020

HORIZON 2020 - combines various EU research and innovation funding instruments into a single program. More than ever, the program aims to turn scientific discoveries into innovative products and services that create new business opportunities and improve people's lives. Horizon 2020 stimulates the economy, strengthens the EU's science and technology base and industrial competitiveness in the future, towards a smarter, more sustainable and inclusive society. Thanks to it, more breakthroughs, discoveries and unique experiences will be achieved by bringing to life the great ideas of the market.

Vogas project

VOGAS - Screening of Gastric Cancer via Breath volatile organic compunds by Hybrid Sensing Approach.

The main goal of the VOGAS project is to provide "conceptual proof" that a combination of mathematical signals generated by exhaled air from new sensors can identify gastric cancer and precancerous lesions.

Another important goal of the VOGAS project is to generate new knowledge about the origin, mechanisms and applications of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) that could potentially serve for gastric cancer screening by analyzing exhaled air.

The duration of the project - 01/01/2019 until 01/01/2022 

Project identification No. - 824986

The total funding of the project - 51 000 EUR

Project scientific manager - Dr. med. Mārcis Leja

Sniffphone project

SNIFFPHONE - Smartphone for Disease Detection from the Exhaled Breath ("Development of diagnosis of volatile markers for the diagnosis of malignant diseases and associated high risk conditions").

The purpose of the study is to look for new diseases and high-risk states by detecting volatile substances in exhaled air. 

The duration of the study -  15/02/2015 until  15/08/2018


ETHICAL ASPECTS OF THE PREVENTION OF OBESITY IN EUROPE 

The aim of the project was to organize and attend a seminar at Tübingen University and prepare a future project for the EU framework program Horizon 2020. The further aim of the project will be to develop a tool for systematically ethical analysis of adiposity prevention measures.

The duration of the study  - 15/06/2017 until  15/10/2017
