  • Image of caught fish
    EU-funded project unpicks why Europe's fish industry is suffering in the face of international competition and will provide the industry with new software and studies to help improve business strategies.
  • Image of seafood in ice
    The EU-funded CERES project is using models to anticipate the impact of climate change on European fisheries and aquaculture. The assessment will feed into industry-driven solutions to secure Europe's seafood supply.
  • image of hands holding soil
    The EU-funded InnoRenew Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Slovenia will foster research on the innovative and efficient use of renewable resources in building materials.
  • Image of hands holding soil
    A new European centre of excellence for the development of advanced technologies in sustainable agriculture and food security will open in Serbia with the aim to boost economic growth in the region.
  • On 27 January 2016, key representatives of the Animal health community joined in Brussels to launch the International Research Consortium (IRC) on Animal Health. Less than one year later, thanks to Horizon 2020 funding, a new Scientific Secretariat for this IRC is up and running.
  • image of snow on mountain
    In northern Sweden, some 150km inside the Arctic Circle where winter temperatures can fall to -45c, it's thaw season. Futuris went to meet a group of biologists studying the basic mechanisms used by plants to survive in this challenging ecosystem.And the variety of colours of their flowers is one of those survival mechanisms as pollinating insects are attracted by their colours.
  • Many areas worldwide struggle with high levels of arsenic in the water supply. Scientists from Argentina - where several regions are affected - are collaborating with European colleagues to find solutions in the context of an EU-funded project. Together, they intend to develop a low-cost system to produce safe drinking water for people and livestock.
  • EU-funded researchers are investigating novel non-GMO approaches to stepping up stress-resistance in crops. The research could lead to increased yields for farmers and improve Europe's food security.
  • The EU-funded project INSPIRATION aims to develop a European research roadmap on sustainable land management practices. The agenda would help focus Europe's research, supporting policymaking on environmentally friendly, socially acceptable and economically affordable soil and land use management.
  • An EU-funded project has developed new ways of converting biomass in Brazil into a range of higher value-added products, helping to cut waste, reduce fossil fuel dependence and strengthen sustainable paper-making practices. Several new technologies are now being exploited by project partners and licensed third parties.
