We need structural changes, we need to really actively work on education, we need to actively work on bringing curiosity in the DNA of our people. The more curious people are about things, the more questions they will ask, the more innovative they will be and the more solutions will be at hand. So if you bring curiosity in the DNA of people or citizens in general, no matter how high or low their education is, they will go after answers and if you involve the population in bringing the answers together then you have tons of differents solutions and that's actually what innovation does.

The stem cell research sector is growing more than twice as fast (7%) as the global research average (2. 9%), according to a new report. The study, which examined the growth and development of the stem cell field as a whole, also closely examined the embryonic stem (ES) cell and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell research landscape. Quality validation date: 2013-12-18 [read more]

As a research engineer, I'm involved in the topics of how to run factories in the future. This man, this human involvement, automation and progress doesn't mean that we want to get the people out of the factories. It's maybe the other way around: I see a future where technology will really help us to define and design our better living environment, with better jobs, good jobs, healthy life and maybe we don't just need to talk about technology itself but let's say, have some human involvement in the sense of culture and put into our children and education more need to get them into a better life.

The European Commission recently published the best available techniques (BAT) conclusions for the production of chlor-alkali. Chlorine chemistry is used to manufacture a wide range of products such as window frames, pipes, flooring, upholstery, insulation, plastics or paints. These conclusions, produced by the JRC's European Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control Bureau (EIPPCB), cover the production of chlorine, hydrogen, potassium hydroxide and sodium hydroxide by the electrolysis of brine and set the limits for the emissions to air and water associated with this production.

Over recent decades, advances in information technology have revolutionised the way that information is generated, stored and, largely due to the evolution of the Internet, disseminated. For researchers and scholars in all disciplines these changes present new opportunities and challenges for how their work is published, and the concept of open access is now becoming well established.
