2. Public events for personalised travel planning in Riga (Latvia)

The city of Riga, Latvia, is implementing personalised travel planning (PTP) aimed to affect a behaviour changeaway from private cars to sustainable modes such as cycling, walking and public transport. The target audience in phase 1was households in two neighbourhoods and public events, but it was public events which proved much more successful as ameans to engage people.In Riga, when trying to influence behavioural habits, events provided an open and friendly environment eliciting positiveresults, compared to the less effective on-the-doorstep approach to households.

6. What cosmic rays tell us about thunderstorms on Earth

Cosmic rays are high-energy charged particles. High in the atmosphere, when they strike the atmospheric molecules they create a 'shower' of elementary particles that can reach the Earth's surface. These showers can be measured from the radio emission that is generated when their constituent particles are deflected by the magnetic field of the Earth. The radio emission also gives information about the nature and origin of the particles, and that is exactly what Prof. [read more]

10. Success Stories - Elastic road surface reduces motorway noise pollution

Noise pollution is still an issue on Europe's roads. But thanks to technological advances, it's less down to the sound of the car's engine and more about how tyres touch the road surface. One solution is being tested in Denmark where part of the road has been covered with experimental surface material that dampens the tyre noise. [read more]
