GIAP has been developing multidispliciplinary research lines (in bold) since 2004. Some of these lines have been developed through different individually funded projects (in italics) and have evolved into large framework programmes. Here we only include currently active projects (co-)directed by GIAP members (see below for projects in which GIAP members participate):
