The report of the September workshop on the sustainability of the EU's livestock production systems is now available. Livestock is increasingly criticised for its environmental impact. At the same time, it counts for very significant parts of human diet and many livestock production systems deliver valuable socio-economic and positive environmental outcomes. How can livestock systems be geared towards greater sustainability? The question is high on the agenda of both farmers and researchers. Read more

How can we explore the inside of a volcano? What are the conditions in caverns deep beneath the earth surface? FET Open project Phoenix seeks to get information about places where humans have no or only extremely difficult access Read more

What do research on personalised medicine, work towards safer aircraft, understanding turbulence and unravelling the structure of matter have in common? They all require high performance computing (HPC). An EU-funded project is creating the experts we will need to find the answers to these and other global questions using HPC. Read more

EU-funded project SEPCELL will conduct a clinical trial of a stem cell treatment for patients with severe sepsis caused by a severe form of community-acquired bacterial pneumonia. The trial is one of a series of steps in assessing whether the treatment is safe and efficacious for patients with this life-threatening disease. Read more
Workshop systems approaches I
From 04/01/2017 to 04/01/2017
Researchers are increasingly encouraged to adopt systems approaches in their work on agriculture, food and non-food value chains. But what do we actually mean by systems approaches? Why do we think systems approaches could deliver better results? Read more

Swiss researchers and organisations will now be able to fully participate in Horizon 2020, the European Union's research and innovation funding programme, on equal terms with entities from EU Member States and other associated countries. This is because on 1 January 2017, Switzerland will become fully associated to Horizon 2020. Until now, Switzerland has only been associated to parts of the programme. Read more

From 22/12/2016 to 22/12/2016
The sudden earthquakes that hit the headlines can be catastrophic. However, much slower ruptures release energy more safely. An EU-funded researcher is identifying how these little-understood slow ruptures occur, their precursory signals and how they are linked to fast earthquakes - information that could one day help develop early warning systems.

From 22/12/2016 to 22/12/2016
Nanocarriers are tiny substances that can be used to transport other materials, such as drugs, to specific areas of the body. The EU-funded TARGETCARE project plans to use them to treat joint and intervertebral disc diseases - improving patients' mobility and quality of life. Read more

From 22/12/2016 to 22/12/2016
How should the EU respond to ongoing and future crises? The EU-funded research project TransCrisis seeks to advance understanding of the EU's capacity to handle transboundary emergencies. Read more
