From 05/04/2016 to 05/04/2016
EU-funded project INTERACT has built a network of Arctic research stations, allowing them to coordinate and share resources more efficiently. The network aims to boost the scope and quantity of research on the Arctic, which serves as a bellwether of global changes to climate, biodiversity and land use. Read more
From 04/11/2015 to 04/11/2015
An EU-funded consortium is bridging the gap between science and the general public, fostering real and virtual environments in which researchers and citizens collaborate on cutting-edge initiatives for the benefit of both science and society. Read more
From 06/08/2015 to 06/08/2015
Africa’s ICT infrastructures are fast evolving, creating exciting opportunities for researchers keen to join the global e-science community. Dedicated European-African initiatives are exploring the potential and engaging with stakeholders to raise awareness of the possibilities. An EU-funded project has assisted them in this task.

Custom-built equipment monitoring atmospheric conditions and quality of the night sky at the Aar candidate site in Namibia
From 05/08/2015 to 05/08/2015
The ability to observe very high energy gamma radiation has opened a new window on the universe, and researchers around the world are keen to seize the new opportunities it offers. As part of an EU-funded project, they have created an international alliance to move beyond current experimental instruments towards a major telescope array for this new type of observation.

Research infrastructures provide the tools scientists need to understand the world and, in some cases, make it a better place. But these resources – from telescopes to biobanks, and from museum archives to wave energy test sites – cost more than most countries can afford. The EU-funded PAERIP project has started the ball rolling for new partnerships to share resources between Europe and Africa Read more
Hadron Collider
From 24/11/2014 to 24/11/2014
Physicists use particle accelerators to study the nature of matter and energy. These large machines guide charged particles through a magnetic field in a hollow evacuated tube and accelerate them by an electric field. Read more
From 13/10/2014 to 13/10/2014
The demand for wood products and services is increasing worldwide due to economic and climate policy driving forces. It is therefore imperative for experts in forestry research to develop a common framework which could facilitate interactions between different areas of expertise and the exchange of scientific knowledge.

AQUAEXCEL partner SINTEF runs a full-scale fish farm in Norway that is available for aquaculture research
From 09/10/2014 to 09/10/2014
Aquaculture holds the promise of reducing the need to catch wild fish. Global demand for fish is increasing, putting many species in danger from overfishing. Fish farming, or aquaculture, is taking some of the pressure off these stocks – half of the fish consumed globally is now produced at fish farms. Read more
From 01/07/2014 to 01/07/2014
Access to biological resources such as cells and tissue samples is the lifeblood of biomedical research. Biobanks and biomolecular resource centres collect, store and distribute this material, the related data and powerful analytical tools, but none of them can single-handedly meet the growing, diverse needs of Europe’s research community. EU funding has enabled major repositories to link up and share these resources. Read more
From 28/03/2014 to 28/03/2014
Clinical trials - the tests of medicines, medical devices and treatments - are costly and complicated to carry out, especially when they involve groups in different countries. Read more
