We have been contracted as concept engineers on a number of European Commission research projects, helping tell the stories behind advancements in the fields of Nanotechnology, Photonics and Public Health Nutrition. Below are four completed projects, and two ongoing:
The EU-funded research project Nanodem is currently developing a state-of-the-art device, which will allow the automatic measurement of post-operative therapeutic drugs with a narrow therapeutic range and serious potential side effects.
CSP were responsible for production for the Nanodem project video.

Within the EU-supported research project HemoSpec, a multidisciplinary team of researchers, clinicians and engineers from six European countries has joined forces to develop an innovative device for early, fast and reliable medical diagnosis of infectious diseases and sepsis using only minimal amounts of patient's blood.
CSP were responsible for production for the HemoSpec project video.

The Tomato Foundation is a new NGO focussed on driving consumer demand for tomatoes and tomato products worldwide by sponsoring strategies that engage consumers effectively – especially through social media.
Caledonian Science Press is a member of the Tomato Foundation, and in early 2013 the Red and Juicy network - a new celebration point for all tomato fans - was brought online and connected to the already existing Tomato+Health web portal.
In 2013 Caledonian Science Press also launched a fresh initiative called LoveHeartFood, which aims to join the fight against youth obesity by encouraging teenagers and young adults to cook through the power of Rock, Buzz 'n' Roll.
CSP creates and controls every facet from the music to the mozzarella.
Be warned... This is the loudest cooking show out there!

The HEALTHGRAIN Integrated Project (EC-funded) aimed to improve well-being of consumers and to reduce the risk of metabolic diseases in Europe by increasing the intake of protective compounds in whole grains or their fractions. The focus was on producing health promoting and safe cereal foods and ingredients of high quality which are attractive to consumers.
Caledonian Science Press was contracted to design and build a central consumer-based portal (Cereals+Health) and ready it with an initial amount of engaging multimedia content aimed at a broad age range.

LYCOCARD (LYCOpene-CARDiovascular) was a 5-year, EC-funded integrated project that ran from April 2006 to March 2011 with the aim of identifying exactly why lycopene, sourced mostly from processed tomato products, may play an important role in protecting citizens by preventing cardiovascular disease.
Caledonian Science Press was the LYCOCARD Project dissemination partner, responsible for communicating information about the project to all sections of society. This goal was achieved by utilising both old and new promotional thinking, from magazine adverts to online video shorts.
