RESETageing project aims at enhancing the scientific and innovation competences of University of Coimbra (UC), Portugal, a low-performing partner, in the area of biology of ageing and age-related cardiovascular diseases, with three high-performing partners, University of Newcastle upon Tyne (UNEW), United Kingdom, Leibniz Institute of Ageing(LIA), Germany, and the University of Maastricht (UM), The Netherlands.
To accomplish this goal, the project is divided in 6 work packages (WPs) that will: (i) stimulate research excellence in the ageing and age-related cardiovascular diseases at UC research groups, through the establishment of a collaborative network with the Twinning institutions, (ii) train and give institutional exposure of UC researchers in the area of ageing mechanisms and new tools in age-related diseases (omics, system biology and animal models), and (iii) build an innovation and entrepreneurship environment at UC by nurturing an entrepreneurial and risk-taking spirit among UC students and researchers.
