    Animal diseases can cause serious social, economic and environmental damage, impact on animal welfare and in some cases directly threaten human health. These diseases ignore borders. Working together to develop new control methods is essential. 14 organisations committed to jointly invest around EUR 1 billion so far in the next five years through a new international research consortium on animal health. Its launch will be celebrated on 27/01 in Brussels, Charlemagne Press corner at 13:15.

    Is a precise answer always better than a slightly less detailed one? Not necessarily. Some problems could take forever to compute and tie up vast IT capacity. Where solutions are needed urgently, e.g. in business or manufacturing, near-enough can be more than enough. ERC-funded research has produced a library of fast, powerful approximation algorithms.

    The Graphene Flagship's overriding goal is to take graphene, related layered materials and hybrid systems from a state of raw potential to a point where they can revolutionise multiple industries. The Flagship is looking for new industrial partners that bring in specific industrial and technology transfer competences or capabilities that complement the present Flagship consortium. Call topics are on "Magnetic sensors" and "Functional Foams and Coatings". Deadline 22 Feb 2016.

    In 2011 alone, more than 30 000 people were killed on EU roads and many more had their lives changed forever due to a serious injury. The European Commission has set the target of cutting road deaths by half by 2020, and projects such as ARTRAC are helping. The project developed new sensor technologies to reduce the likelihood of vehicles colliding with pedestrians - one of the most vulnerable of all road users.

    At the end of its first year, the Scientific Panel for Health will be presenting its initial findings at a public conference to be held on 21 January 2016.

    The conference will be an opportunity for a wide range of stakeholders in health to participate and provide input into this process, and to meet with members of the Scientific Panel for Health.

    Registration is now open. Participation is free.

    Unfortunately, dealing with one chronic disease doesn't mean that you can't develop another. More than 50 million people in Europe are living with more than one such condition, and this number is expected to grow. EU-funded researchers are looking into ways to provide them with more integrated support and redesign healthcare systems accordingly.

    Machine tools are expensive investments that need frequent preventive maintenance. EU-funded researchers have devised new methods to keep them in peak condition through remote monitoring, cutting maintenance costs. Commercial prospects for the new technology are strong thanks to the industrial partners in the project.

    Agricultural, forestry and residential waste can provide fuel for transport, heat for homes and electricity for businesses, reducing Europe's dependence on imported fossil fuels and lowering green house gas emissions. EU-funded researchers are overcoming challenges to making residual biomass a technically viable and cost-competitive source of renewable energy.
