  • From blue ocean to icy clouds

    22/09/2015 - 15:31
    We know that clouds in the Earth’s atmosphere are made of liquid water droplets, ice particles or a mixture of both. Still, our basic understanding on the nature of these ice particles, how they form and their role in climate continue to be poor. The results of Dr Benjamin Murray's ERC research, published today in Nature, add a new piece to the atmospheric puzzle.
  • On to second-generation bioethanol

    18/09/2015 - 18:23
    Europe is the world’s third-largest producer of bioethanol – an important renewable fuel and energy source. Most stems from crops. Aiming to enlarge the feedstock basis for ethanol production, an EU-funded project has taken advanced bioethanol production from plant waste a large step closer to cost-efficient implementation.
  • What’s in it for the legumes?

    18/09/2015 - 17:50
    Legumes fix nitrogen in the soil, helping other plants to thrive. But do they get anything in return? Indeed they do, says EU-funded research, if they’re combined with suitable non-leguminous crops.
  • Pioneering power generation from olive mill waste

    18/09/2015 - 14:30
    EU-funded researchers are looking to commercialise cutting-edge technology that converts toxic olive oil waste into heat and electricity, bringing environmental and economic benefits to some of the most underdeveloped regions of Europe.
  • An algae-based solution to prosthetic-related infections

    17/09/2015 - 20:01
    The NOMORFILM project is looking into whether biomolecules in marine microalgae can combat bacterial and fungal infections associated with prosthetic devices and catheters. Preventing infections will improve patient care and help cut the cost of treating complications, estimated at €7 billion a year in Europe
  • Mentoring and money for innovative farming apps

    13/09/2015 - 02:00
    Around Europe, 50 SMEs, start-ups and web entrepreneurs are receiving EU support as they put the final touches to their prototype apps for smart farming. Around 30 will be selected for further funding, which will be used by the developers to prepare their app for market launch in 2016.
  • Tapping demand for hormone-free goat’s milk

    08/09/2015 - 02:00
    EU-funded research has developed insemination strategies to help goats reproduce at any time of the year, without the use of hormones. This means year-round, hormone-free goat’s milk.
  • Pioneering power generation from olive mill waste

    07/09/2015 - 02:00
    EU-funded researchers are looking to commercialise cutting-edge technology that converts toxic olive oil waste into heat and electricity, bringing environmental and economic benefits to some of the most underdeveloped regions of Europe.
  • Making green organic fertiliser from bones

    06/09/2015 - 02:00
    EU-funded researchers have developed a zero-emission method of recycling organic phosphorous fertiliser from animal bones. They aim to help farmers cut down on chemicals – saving them money and making food production safer and greener.
