Type 1 diabetes results from abnormal activity of the body's immune system and it is on the rise in European children and adolescents. A European research project aims to find out why the cleanliness long assumed to be the best defence against this disease could actually be the cause of it. Read more

Lung infections are one of the most common illnesses to potentially endanger the lives of prematurely born children. Babies born before their term can frequently suffer from Chronic Lung Disease of Prematurity (CLD) or Broncho-pulmonary Dysplasia (BPD), and clinicians treating these infants might be forced to use drugs that are meant for use with older children and adults, but whose effects with neo-natal patients are unknown. The European Union (EU)-funded research project TINN2 seeks to solve this problem. Read more

Copenhagen

ESOF2014 offers a platform where researchers, journalists, policy makers, students and organisations can meet and debate European research and global challenges.

The 2014 meeting is entitled “Science Building Bridges”. The aim of this event is to raise awareness of science in the public and to strengthen the effective “bridges” between science and society.

The scientific programme, covering 8 themes, consists of keynote lectures, seminars, workshops and engaging formats for debating the latest research.

The advent of desktop laser printers that can produce three-dimensional (3D) objects is rapidly changing the manufacturing landscape. The next generation of 3D printers is being ushered in by the European Union (EU)-funded project FEMTOPRINT that has invented a compact printer which can generate tiny glass objects three times stronger than steel. Developed by the FEMTOPRINT team, the device is the first that can make 3D objects at both “micro” and “nano” scales. Read more
