At the supermarket, do you always know where you parked your car? Can you remember what you came to buy, if you haven't written it down? And can you do so without having to rack your brain? If so, you're lucky. Most of us occasionally struggle, and will struggle even more as we get older. EU-funded research has analysed how age affects our memory. [read more]

As European countries grow their renewable energy capacity, grid operators need to find ways to balance supply and demand due to the variability of sun and wind. The recent trial of a smart distribution system on the Danish island of Bornholm, where more than 50 %of electricity comes from wind farms, has demonstrated an efficient and effective solution.

We are pleased to announce the final conference of the European Commission‐funded ADVANCE project. The conference will bring together stakeholders, climate policy experts and scientists to discuss “Deep decarbonization for staying well below 2°C”. The Paris Agreement reinforced the objective of keeping global temperature rise well below 2 degrees Celsius, and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. Such low stabilization requires swift action and an almost full-scale decarbonization of energy systems worldwide. [read more]
The objective of this conference is to assess the current challenges Europe faces regarding sustainable development policy, bring together stakeholders from different sectors and address the prospects for further progress in this area. [read more]
Phenotypes are observable characteristics that represent the result of complicated biological mechanisms translating our genes into something we can actually see. Genes can determine our differences - whether we have brown or blue eyes, whether we are tall or short - and our similarities. Traits that define human beings, or any other species, are pretty stable within the population yet such traits have changed between species during evolution. For example, humans have long hairs on head, pubis and armpits whereas primates have them all over the body. [read more]

Event is focused on the latest research findings on Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base (CCCTB), EU-own taxes, a sustainable tax collection, what defines equal, socially and environmentally sustainable taxation and more and organized by Horizon 2020 research project FairTax. The FairTax research project produces recommendations on how fair and sustainable taxation and social policy reforms can increase the economic stability of EU member states, promote economic equality and security, enhance coordination and harmonization of tax, social inclusion, environmental, legitimacy, and compliance measures, support deepening of the European Monetary Union, and expand the EU’s own-source revenue bases.

Delegates at this timely seminar will discuss the future of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) - focusing on how the next REF will be structured and on the funding allocation. It has been scheduled to follow the Government-commissioned review of the REF being undertaken by Lord Stern, which is due to report in the summer. Planned sessions examine key elements of the review, including how to promote and support excellence, reduce administrative burden, increase the use of metrics, and improve the process of peer review. The agenda will also look at proposals for regular 'mini REFs' or a system of ongoing impact assessment using metrics in order to support quality on an ongoing basis and identify areas of emerging excellence.
