7th Framework Programme

Vratis successfully submitted a grant proposal to FP7 EU ICT Programme. As founders of OSE we have invited partners from different research institutions to the consortium, as well as coordinated the project itself. The company role would be to develop a software for image processing in HCS. The consortium consists of academic and SME partners from Poland, Switzerland, UK, Italy, Bulgaria, Cyprus and Germany. More information about the project can be found at http://sen.sourceforge.net

7th Framework Programme

Vratis joined the DNARNA consortium and successfully submitted a grant proposal to FP7 EU Health Programme. The company role would be to develop a software for automated particle tracking in fluorescence recovery after photobleaching and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy images. The consortium consists of academic and SME partners from Poland, Israel, UK, Netherlands, Croatia and Germany.

7th Framework Programme

Vratis joined the Imagine consortium and successfully submitted a grant proposal to FP7 EU SME Programme. The consortium from Poland, Ireland, and Germany represents strong academic partners and SMEs in textmining and ontologies as well as in image analysis. Our role would be to automatically retrieve and classify medical and biological images from scientific publications.
