Europe’s first fully comparable evaluation of vitamin D status and dietary intake – as they relate to vitamin D deficiency – will soon be available thanks to the EU-funded ODIN project. This could lead to innovative food-based solutions designed to increase vitamin D in the food supply. Read more
An EU-funded researcher has developed a way to study directly how the body processes and stores fat. New information from his method is helping scientists better understand how to prevent serious health conditions. Read more
The aerospace, medical technologies and automotive sectors have very high manufacturing costs because of the complexity of the parts involved, the low volumes produced and the price of raw materials. EU-funded researchers are building a solution that almost sounds too good to be true: a fast, energy-efficient combined subtractive and additive manufacturing machine that produces metal parts for lower cost than its traditional counterparts.

Imagine if you could eat all your favourite foods without feeling guilty about the amount of salt, fat and sugar you are putting away. EU-funded researchers have been studying how to lower levels of all three ingredients in everyday foods, and the results are promising – reductions of up to 30% with no effect on flavour. Read more
Do you trust the police? Do you think the police trust you? The public’s relations with Europe’s boys and girls in blue can be rocky, particularly for members of minorities. EU-funded research has looked into the power of restorative justice to foster constructive attitudes and defuse conflicts. Read more
EU-funded researchers are developing an environmentally friendly alternative to petrochemical-based coatings on food and beverage packaging. Made from food processing by-products, the biodegradable coatings would decrease dependency on fossil fuel-based plastics, improve recyclability and reduce landfill waste. Read more
FARSEEING aimed to focus on the issue of promoting healthy, independent living for older adults. More specifically, it aimed at better prediction, identification and prevention of falls with a focus on ICT devices and the unique proactive opportunities they can provide to older adults to support them in their own environment. Key to this was the falls repository (real-world falls) and a broad range of technologies which include the use of smartphone, smarthome, wearable sensors and exergames. Read more
