    The Mobilisation and Mutual Learning workshop « Maritime Cuisine Meets Sustainable Tourism » is organised in the framework of the MARINA project funded by Horizon 2020 programme and hosted by Nausicaa - Centre National de la Mer in France. I

    t will bring together European and national representatives from tourism and seafood industry, researchers, policy makers, civil society and citizens.

    They will share knowledge and expectations, define a common vision and propose

  • New Technological Advances for the Third Generation of Solar Cells

    10/08/2017 - 12:42
    Achieving energy efficient, cost effective and versatile solar cells has always been a challenge for the scientific community. The emerging perovskite sensitized solar cells (PSCs) are very attractive candidates to fulfil these requirements. Their potential for fast rise in performance attracted intense attention from scientific community and in particular from GOTSolar consortium.

  • Preserving sponge grounds in the North Atlantic

    14/07/2017 - 15:04
    EU-funded research into North Atlantic sponge grounds aims to discover unique sponge ecosystems. This should improve understanding of such ecosystems functioning, help predict threats, ensure their sustainable use and assess their links to human well-being.

  • Strategy to scale-up fish industry's competitiveness

    12/07/2017 - 02:00
    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.

  • An integrated observing system for the Atlantic Ocean

    12/07/2017 - 02:00
    Buoys, floats, moorings and research vessels, to name just a few examples - data about the state of the Atlantic is collected by a number of means. And by a profusion of actors, who could jointly produce even better results if they applied a common strategy. EU-funded researchers are driving the development of an integrated system.

  • Valuable metals not stuck in the mud

    08/06/2017 - 02:00
    Bauxite residue - the by-product from the extraction of aluminium from bauxite ore - has the consistency of thick, red mud. Disposing of this waste poses a serious problem for industry, as does the risk of spills. But red mud can also be a source of critical metals. The REDMUD project intends to turn residues into low-carbon building materials - and to train researchers along the way.

  • 'Electric' bacteria can purify sewage water - fast

    07/06/2017 - 02:00
    Harnessing bacteria that produce electricity and break down organic waste, a European research project is developing a new, environmentally friendly way to purify sewage water in small communities.

  • Turning rubbish into added-value resources

    07/06/2017 - 02:00
    The NEW-MINE project will identify and develop enhanced landfill-mining technology to transform landfill waste into high-added-value products, such as fuel and building materials.

  • Cargo vessels: a cleaner alternative to lorries

    31/05/2017 - 02:00
    Cargo vessels are considered a relatively green mode of transport. Compared to lorries, they produce fewer emissions. But road transport is modernising fast and vessels have to keep up to remain competitive.

  • ATLAS maps the deep blue Atlantic

    31/05/2017 - 02:00
    We know more about the dark side of the moon and the surface of Mars than we do about our deep ocean environments. EU-funded research is shedding more light on the darkest depths of the North Atlantic maritime region. A better understanding of deep-sea habitats will inform the sustainable management of this vital resource.
