We have been working in the
field of EEG biofeedback. The
aim of the work was to
measure the effect of EEG
biofeedback therapy on motor,
cognitive and emotional
deficits of children with
cerebral disability of different
levels and compare this effect
with classical rehabilitation.
We assumed that applying
neurofeedback therapy (EEG
biofeedback) will strengthen
the control of impulsivity and
attention and among other
manifestation of treatment will
include improvement in motor
and coordination skills. This
was a prospective
multidisciplinary study
(Pediatric Neurology,
Neurorehabilitation,
Neuropsychology), which was
part of the grant of the
European Union. We also
been worked in the field of

Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a highly dynamic process that develops within hours or
days. The SCI will be induced by computer-controlled compression causing
permanent paraplegia of the lower limbs, with the spinal reflexes being only
partially intact. During the treatment (3-8 hours after spinal cord compression) a
perfusion chamber will be implanted above the damage site, allowing local spinal
cord perfusion of medium allowing to normalize cellular metabolic homeostasis.
This therapeutic procedure will be combined with spinal cord hypothermia. The
method of epidural cooling developed at the Institute on experimental animals has
been adopted as a neuroprotective measure applied during major surgery on the
aorta in human patients with aortic aneurysm, and is being continually used in
prominent departments of vascular surgery in the USA and in Japan. We assume
that spinal cord hypothermia in combination with local topical treatment with
neuroprotective agents may effectively reduce degenerative changes of axons
around the spinal injury epicenter. By using rat and porcine models of spinal
trauma we wish i) to characterize the effect of local spinal hypothermic therapy
on the recovery of motor and sensory function after a paraplegia-inducing spinal

Short description of our laboratories: Laboratory of Photosynthesis Laboratory is specialized on primary and
secondary reactions of photosynthesis as well as chlorophyll biosynthesis. In the last few years, our work has been
focused on the study of development of photosynthetic apparatus in gymnosperms in the dark, photosynthesis of
carnivorous plants in response to prey capture, as well as on stress physiology. Infrared gas analyser (CIRAS-2, PP-
systems, UK).) is used for measurements of carbon dioxide assimilation and transpiration of water. Simultaneously
with the measurements of photosynthesis, respiration and transpiration, in vivo chlorophyll fluorescence (Fluorcam
FC 1000-LC, Photon Systems Instruments, CZ) provides 2D image of photochemical activity of photosystem II in the
leaves. Detailed analysis of energy fluxes within photosystem II can be determined by fast chlorophyll fluorescence
induction kinetic (OJIP-test, Fluorpen FP 100max, Photon Systems Instruments, CZ). Combination of these methods
allow us to obtain the complex view on photosynthesis; from absorption of light by assimilation pigments, followed by
utilization of absorbed light for photochemistry and finally photosynthetic assimilation of carbon dioxide. The
laboratory is equipped also by UV/Vis spectrophotometer for assimilation pigment quantification (Jenway 6705,
Krackeler Scientific, UK). Laboratory of Plant Anatomy The group from the Laboratory of Plant Anatomy is primarily
focused on anatomical and histological studies of plant organs, especially roots, using various kind of microscopy
(bright-field, fluorescence, scan and transmission electron microscopy). Laboratory is equipped, except of basic lab
tools, also with Zeiss Axioskop 2plus fluorescence microscope coupled with software for image analysis (Lucia, LIM),
Zeiss Axiolab optical microscope and Zeiss Stemi DV4 stereomicroscope, microtomes and other tools important for
preparation of samples for TEM and SEM. The members of the Laboratory of Plant Anatomy are currently involved in
various national and international projects, dealing with study of influence of heavy metals and toxic elements on the
plant growth and development, phytoremediation technologies and improvement of food safety and medicinal herbs.
Laboratory of plant molecular biology and biochemistry The laboratory is equipped for standard analysis of gene
expression (RT-PCR), molecular cloning (recombinant DNA techniques) and protein analysis (protein gel blot
analysis – Western blot and 2D-PAGE).The main focus of the laboratory members is plastid biogenesis and
metabolism. Currently, we are interested in plastid metabolic changes induced by host-parasitic plant interactions and
involvement of the plastids in host-parasite communication.

The University of Economics in Bratislava (UEBA) was established in 1940 as the Slovak Higher School of
Commerce and ever since it has been one of the most important educational and research institutions in the Slovak
Republic. The UEBA provides higher education in economics, business and related studies at all three levels. The
research forms an integral part of UEBA’s activities. The development of international cooperation with universities,
enterprises and institutions from around the world is one of the priorities of the University. UEBA has been involved in
many international projects within European Union programmes such as Leonardo da Vinci, Erasmus, the European
Social Fund and others.
Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (STU) is a modern educational and scientific institution. Since its
foundation in the year 1937 more than 105.000 students have graduated. At present, the STU consists of seven
faculties that provide a study in accredited study programs of a bachelor, master and PhD study. In the area of
scientific and research activities the STU successfully joins European Union programs. Department of Fibre and
Textile Chemistry, Institute of Polymer Materials at the Faculty of Chemical Technology, STU is the unique one in
Slovak Republic which provides the education and research in fibre and textile chemistry and technology. The staff of
Department of Fibres and Textile Chemistry, Institute of Polymer Materials, STU has a long-year experiences with
development of the new polymer materials based on polymer blends, pigmented and filled polymers, polymer
composites and fibres based on them.




In recent years, main areas of research of contact person and her team inclucded: a) Understanding of
physiological mechanisms of post-exercise balance impairment; b) Developing of methods for objectively evaluating
balance under sport-specific conditions; c) Designing of exercise programs for improvement of balance functions
using novel forms of interventions (e. g., serial mechanical proprioceptive stimulation, instability agility and resistance
exercises, task-oriented balance exercises, etc.).
IVMA STU, s.r.o. is a spin-off company of Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava. The basic idea is to employ
the know-how earned during the years of research on SUT in Bratislava for the industrial application more simply and
cost effectively. IVMA STU, s.r.o.focuses on the research of materials for specific application especially in extreme
environment and conditions. Further it deals with the development of materials for extreme environment with respect
to real application conditions and geometry. In this case the development tasks of applied research are solved and
the know-how obtained during this reasearch is converged into the practical applications. It deals predominantly with
metallic materials and metall matrix composites.

professor. Activities of EVPU j.s.c and products are directed for areas: railways, urban transport, industry,
energetics, power industry, defence industry, testing service in SKTC101 (Slovak inspection and testing centre).
Origins of our activities are dated back to the year 1968, when the independent research and development
organization Electrotechnical Research Institute – EVÚ is created as a part of research base of the ZŤS – Heavy
Industry Concern Company. EVÚ successfully develops drives for rolling mills, drives for machine tools, equipment
and servo systems for automated centers as well as traction equipment for electric locomotives. In the following
period, the Electrotechnical Research Institute extends its research and development capacities for its own
production and so it increases the number of employees to reach the total of 1800 people in the year 1989. -------------
------------------------------------------------------------------- Year 1990 represents changes in our society and break-up of
huge concern companies including the Heavy Industry Company ZŤS. In the same year the Electrotechnical
Research and Development Institute, a state owned company, is created from the research and development
department of ZŤS. EVPÚ is then transformed to the joint-stock company in the year 1994. The company builds-up its
existence on the tradition in the field of research and development. ------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------- EVPÚ holds an important position within the Slovak electrotechnical industry. The company policy is
clearly stated - high standard of products and services offered to Slovak and foreign partners. Reaching this target
goes by the optimal connection of research, development, production and testing into one functioning process with
qualified and experienced personnel as its driving force. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Research and development centre within the specialization creates appropriate working groups suitable to needs of
individual projects. Focused on strengths of company engineers brings fully support to them to provide the best
results. Based on the project specifications for each project we assign separate working team. Customer
requirements are subject to rigorous analysis and creating solutions is well-founded by all available knowledge in the
field. Our equipment allows us to develop analysis using a computer simulation system (CAD, CAM). To precede
errors in the stage of research and technological development all production drawings are prepared in digital form.
Each project is subject to subsequent archiving.

The Institute of Neurobiology SAS deals with basic complex neuroscience research that is relevant to major
disorders of the central nervous system, such as CNS stroke and spinal cord trauma. The scientific program of the
Institute is closely associated with clinical research. Research activities are focused on: 1. Study of endogenous
defence mechanisms such as phenomenon of “ischemic tolerance”. The discovery, that delayed neuronal death can
be reversed by delayed postconditioning applied 2 days after ischemia or intoxication, commits us to continue and
gives us chance to keep leadership in this field of research. 2. Regeneration medicine for the treatment of brain and
spinal cord diseases. Transplantation and tissue replacement therapies are based on understanding molecular
mechanisms of ontogenesis of the nervous system. The enhancement of therapeutic efficacy using a novel
combinatory transplantation strategy involving bioactive substances, trophic factors, stem cells and biomaterials. 3.
Therapeutic potency in modulating hyperexcitability of spinal reflexes and the reduction of synaptic inhibition
associated with spasticity after spinal cord injury. 4. The use of large model (porcine chronic spinal trauma model)
with similar anatomical dimensions of the spinal cord to humans permiting the development and testing of
implantable spinal regional perfusion devices that can readily be modified for clinical use in human patients.

Our cooperation with universities takes several forms including, most importantly, our specialists' lecturing and
tutoring for talented students writing their master's theses at Slovak universities.
Our ambition is to support Slovak higher education institutions by bringing in new theoretical as well as practical
knowledge, especially in the following areas: architecture of software systems and modern tools for software systems
development.
At the same time, we support talented students who, through participation in our projects, have an opportunity to
practice and improve their gained knowledge. Moreover, by giving students the opportunity to cooperate in our
projects we are also giving them an opportunity to find the professional orientation best fitted for them.

"Cooperation with European Union Agency for Fundametal Rights (FRA) within the FRANET network": In the
second half of 2011, Center for the Research of Ethnicity and Culture (CVEK) became the national focal point of
European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) within the network of research institutions FRANET. The
network engages organizations in each EU member state as well as Croatia. Within the cooperation the main task is
to collect data on fundamental rights issues in Slovakia and their processing according the FRA specification. In 2011,
CVEK elaborated a baseline study on the observance of fundamental rights in 2011 for the yearly published Annual
Report. In 2012 we have been working on following issues – victim support services, impact of economic crises on
gender equality, conditions of participation of children in fieldwork research and data protection and redress
mechanism. Outputs of the collaboration between CVEK and FRA are available on the FRA website.              "Measures
to improve the education of Roma children - are they truly inclusive? Analyses of the current situation and
recommendations for improvement.": Donor: Government Office of the Slovak Republic Period: October 2011 –
March 2012 The main goal of the project is based on qualitative empirical research to evaluate the current public
policy measures aimed to improve the education of Roma children in terms of their inclusiveness. This means to
assess to what extend the measures enable full and equal opportunities for Roma children to participate in the
educational process without endangering their own cultural identity. Based on the research CVEK research team has
an ambition to formulate recommendations to improve existing policies and if necessary to suggest alternative tools,
which would support the inclusive education of Roma children and prevent systematic exclusion of Roma children
from mainstream education. CVEK´s project focuses on two basic types of measures: pedagogical measures
(especially teaching assistants, zero grade, individual integration) and financial measures (e.g. subsidies for food and
school supplies, motivational scholarships, etc.) from a so far unexamined perspective - inclusive education, which
respects the social disadvantages and also cultural differences. CVEK will monitor the extent to which these
programs help the Roma children in being able to fully participate in school without having to assimilate and to give up
their identities. CVEK focuses on the examination of the extent and if at all the educational system bears the burden
of the process of inclusion. In the center of a CVEK´s concern therefore is whether the school is adapted to the needs
of Roma children, or if only the adaptation of the minority into the existing structures is expected.   "Enhancing
prospects of integration of third countries nationals on the local level": Donor: European Fund of Integration of Third
Countries Nationals Period: March 2011 - June 2012 Building capacities of actors of local integration policies
through networking and development of information base. The project has been concerned with integration of
migrants on local level. It is assumed that successful integration of migrants depends on the way this matter is
perceived dealt with by local stakeholders. Local stakeholders in this project include not only regional and local self-
governments and their subsidiary organizations but also various, civic associations and migrants living in particular
municipalities themselves. EU flagThe project aimed to focus attention of the above mentioned stakeholders on the
R&D of Numerical optimization algorithms, R&D of Software for Pharmacokinetic studies currently, design of space-
approved electronics and optics for low orbit spectrometry.




Electrical signals are not confined only to the animal nerve cells. The plants have also ability to generate electrical
signals, however their role and function has not been well understood. It is known that they are responsible for rapid
leaf movement of carnivorous plants, stomata closure but probably also interface with plant hormones and protein
synthesis. Moreover, action and variation potentials in plants inhibit photosynthesis. Our model plants are
seismonastic Mimosa pudica and carnivorous plant Dionaea muscipula. The main goal of this project is to extend our
knowledge about the role of action and variation potentials on primary and secondary reaction of photosynthesis as
well as photoprotective mechanisms which prevent photosynthetic apparatus against photoinhibition during
propagation of electrical signals. We try to obtain original results about the ionic mechanism of photosynthetic
inhibition and protein expression in response to generation and propagation of electrical signals. Light-independent
chlorophyll (Chl) biosynthesis is a prerequisite for the assembly of photosynthetic pigment– protein complexes in the
dark. Dark-grown Larix decidua Mill. seedlings synthesize Chl only in the early developmental stages and their Chl
level rapidly declines during the subsequent development. Our analysis of the key regulatory steps in Chl
biosynthesis revealed that etiolation of initially green dark-grown larch cotyledons is connected with decreasing
content of glutamyl-tRNA reductase and reduced 5-aminolevulinic acid synthesizing capacity. The level of the Chl
precursor protochlorophyllide also declined in the developing larch cotyledons. Although the genes chlL, chlN and
chlB encoding subunits of the light-independent protochlorophyllide oxidoreductase were constitutively expressed in
the larch seedlings, the accumulation of the ChlB subunit was developmentally regulated and ChlB content
decreased in the fully developed cotyledons. The efficiency of chlB RNA-editing was also reduced in the mature dark-
grown larch seedlings. In contrast to larch, dark-grown seedlings of Picea abies (L.) Karst. accumulate Chl throughout
their whole development and show a diVerent control of ChlB expression. Analysis of the plastid ultrastructure,
photosynthetic proteins by Western blotting and photosynthetic parameters by gas exchange and Chl fluorescence
measurements provide additional experimental proofs for differences between dark and light Chl biosynthesis in
spruce and larch seedlings.

High-Precision micro-forming of complex 3D parts (HiPr) Today, Europe´s leading position in manufacturing of
formed, high-precision 3D metal parts is being threatened by developed non-EU countries that catch up quickly on
product quality at low cost. If no further action is taken, loss of jobs and GDP are at risk. To face global competition, a
breakthrough is needed in tackling the following four challenges: - Continuous product trend for higher quality, smaller
features, at simultaneous demand for lower cost price; - Reduced number of finishing operations and consumption of
raw materials and energy; - Reduction of machine downtime; - On-line 100% quality control of 3D complex shapes.
HiPr will realise this essential breakthrough. The primary goal of HiPr is to develop and integrate all necessary base
technologies which create the basis to control and monitor the condition of micro-tooling for complex high-precision
3D parts. This will be achieved by developing and integrating: in-depth process and material knowledge, in-line
measurements, real-time predictive maintenance. Proof will be given on pilot production lines in industrial settings.
HiPr will do this with a consortium of partners best-in-class in these fields. The methodology that will be used to come
to efficient realisation is the following: Define and describe the process, measure tool performance, model based
prediction of tool performance. This methodology will result in reduction of: - cost by >20%; - material and energy
consumption by >30%; - development cost reduction >30%. The knowledge-based HiPr results are also applicable in
different sectors, leading to low defects, despite customisation trends. HiPr will therefore help in assuring a
competitive and sustainable European manufacturing industry.

Impact of plant food products on secondary diseases of type-2-diabetes


FIS UEP is oriented on two main streams in scientific work. Thanks to the structure of the faculty (faculty consists
from eight departments with general orientation on statistics, demography and informatics) has two main scientific
areas – informatics and exact science. Informatics is split in three scientific orientations – business informatics and
information technology (implementation of ICT within corporations), information management (effectiveness and
efficiency of ICT in corporations, putting managerial methods into work, ICT human resources management) and
knowledge engineering (quality management in relation to content of Web pages). Exact sciences have three main
orientations – statistics, econometrics and demography. Informatics Research and Development work has a long
tradition on this faculty. Traditionally are solved here grants form Czech national grant agency GACR (approximately
15 scientific projects in 5 years). Entering the EU structures, FIS applied international grants with accent on
collaboration in the frame of EU. Realized European project by employees of FIS are demonstrated below. MedIEQ:

Type of project: Slovak Grant Agency for Science 2/0168/11 N. Lukacova Title: NO/ANP-mediated cGMP synthesis
in neuron-glial interaction after spinal cord injury and Baclofen treatment Current clinical studies indicate that one
year after spinal cord injury more than 60% of individuals have symptoms of spasticity. Proposed project is aimed to
find out whether NO- or ANP-mediated cGMP synthesis is involved in neuronal circuits providing inhibitory effects on
reflex activity. The cGMP synthesis, catalyzed by two different isoforms of guanylate cyclase (sGC and pCG) will be
studied in neurons and astrocytes below the site of injury. Such analysis in combination with chronically applied
antispastic treatment (GABA agonist Baclofen, applied p.o./i.t.) will help to understand a possible role of cGMP in
reduction of pain and reflex activity at two spinal cord levels (cervical and lumbosacral), differing each other in NO
synthase expression. Type of project: Slovak Research and Development Agency Marsala/Lukacova Title: Causal
genesis of spasticity and therapeutic possibilities. Project Number: APVV-51-0314-06; 1/2007 - 12/2009 Spasticity is
one of several components belonging to syndrome of upper motor neuron characterized by tendon hyperreflexia,
flexor and extensor spasms, the sign of Babinski and spastic dystonia. Basically, the spasticity is some form of
hypertonus coupled with hyperexcitability of tonic stretch reflexes whereas hyperactive spinal reflexes underlie
majority of signs bound to spasticity. The damage done to the upper motor neuron is disturbing dynamicaly changing
equilibrium between supraspinally exerted inhibitory and excitatory afferentation acting permanently on spinal cord
reflexes mainly against stretch reflexes thus playing a key role in the development of spasticity. Therefore, an

FREESIC
(Free Secure Interoperable Communications)
FREESIC is a collaborative research project discovering a solution that will allow highly secure and cost effective
interoperability between communication infrastructures over the entire Europe. Ardaco is the project coordinator of 9
partners and 5 associated partners is. FREESIC has been inspired by legal, organizational and operational barriers
the consortium has encountered during its previous activities.
Existing interoperability solutions such as gateways are the right approach and will simplify FREESICs adoption and
in return FREESIC will open broader possibilities for them. It will be operated free-of-charge and will offer open source
gateway, documentation and operational guidelines for others to use. The system should motivate end users outside
the consortium to request the integration from their system vendors or integrators.
The architecture will take into account on-going standardization research (e.g.: NCOIC Interoperability Framework) to
reduce the integration time and costs. The integration process will be simple; the system integrator takes the gateway
and modifies it as needed. The gateway remains the property of the integrator. The integrators do not have to worry
about disclosing any know-how or information. The communication between gateways will be end-to-end encrypted
and the gateway will be under full control of end user to avoid security concerns.

SmartCoDe
(Smart Control of Demand for Consumption and Supply to enable balanced, energy-positive buildings and
neighbourhoods)
Research project is focused on energy management in Smart Energy Grids at local level like buildings and
neighborhoods. Intelligent energy management combines traditional sources of energy together with local energy
sources and storages like wind and solar energy or hybrid car and electrocar batteries.
Today, such energy management requires fine grained infrastructure and expensive hardware. This often limits
applicability to industrial and commercial sector. Together with development of new methods for energy management,
one of the goal is to develop inexpensive (< 3€) hardware and software implementation platform which can be used
by 3rd party developers and manufacturers.
Ardaco role in project includes security analysis and implementation of security layer for used protocols with respect
to existing restrictions like computational power, energy usage, bandwidth and availability of PKI infrastructure.

Main international research projects: [1]A Long-Term Biodiversity, Ecosystem and Awarness Research Network -
ALTER-Net - 6 FP programme, The main goal of the project ALTER-Net is to assess the present state of the
biodiversity and its changes according to sustainable development. The goal is achieved by complex integration of
Network of Excellence. Project develops integrated approaches focused on unification and classification of indicators,
driving forces and pressures related to biodiversity on European level. [2]Sustainability Impact Assessment: Tools
for Environmetal,Social and Economic Effects of Multifunctional Land Use in European Regions (SENSOR) SENSOR
was an integrated project designed to substantiate the impact assessment process. It brought together 39 research
partners from 15 European countries, China, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. SENSOR developed a broad view
across policy arenas and land use sectors, which allows the user to simulate the impacts of fundamental changes of
policy orientation, such as the complete redirection of Common Agricultural Policy financial support towards research
and development. [3]Research and maintaining of biodiversity in historical structures of agricultural landscape of
Slovakia, The main object of the investigation was traditional agrarian landscape - the mosaic of small scale arable
fields, meadows and pastures. The main goal was to examine the extend of presence and state of such historical
structures of agricultural landscape (HSAL) in Slovakia and what is their importance from biodiversity point of view.
Based on the analysis of satellite images, combined with field investigation, over 3000 areas with presence of HSAL
were recorded. Detailed interdisciplinary research carried on 3 basic types of HSAL, served the basis for elaboration
of the Strategy of optimal management. The Strategy was then offered to be negotiated with local stakeholders and
local authorities in 3 pilot areas. [4]Policy Influence of Indicators - POINT, 7FP programme; The project will focus
on indicator sets that were specifically designed to influence policies. This will include indicators for sector integration
of environment, indicators for policy instruments such as sustainable development strategies, and ex-ante impact
assessments of policy suggestions including research and innovation, but also indicators and indices, which are used
by various stakeholders for policy influence. The work was carried out at two levels: national and supra-national (EU).
[5]The Global Observation Research Initiative in Alpine Environments - GLORIA -Project 2008, The purpose of
GLORIA is to establish and maintain a world-wide long-term observation network in alpine environments. Vegetation
and temperature data collected at the GLORIA sites will be used for discerning trends in species diversity and
temperature. The data will be used to assess and predict losses in biodiversity and other threats to these fragile
alpine ecosystems which are under accelerating climate change pressures. Until now more than 100 study sites were
included into observation network on 6 continents. The filed investigation period carried in 2008, was in 2009 and
