1. Research Headlines - Predicting the eruptions of unrestful volcanos

Volcanic eruptions are notoriously difficult to predict. Ground-breaking research by EU-funded scientists on the signs of volcanic unrest aims to improve eruption forecasts. Their work on the best ways to communicate such alerts could also help save lives. [read more]

2. Success Stories - Helping clean city air through local initiatives

Although Europe's air quality has improved over the last 25 years, pollution is still prominent - particularly in cities. Cleaning the air is more difficult than before, as most people can no longer smell or see the pollution. However, the European Union (EU)-funded research project CITI-SENSE is harnessing novel technologies to detect contaminated air and share the data in real- time. [read more]

3. Success Stories - Innovative research to assist start-ups with their growing pains

Most start-up enterprises face growing pains in their early years as scarce resources limit their ability to scale up fast enough, forcing them to operate at the periphery of the market. The European Union (EU)-funded project OrgGrowth is currently addressing this issue by finding ways for new ventures to better manage their scarce resources in the current economy, thus helping improve their chances of success. [read more]

4. Success Stories - Simulating the body's immune defences

T-cells are white blood cells that circulate in the body, scanning for cellular abnormalities and infections. Sometimes the detecting process goes awry and the T-cells mistakenly attack the body's own cells, which occur in autoimmune diseases, or they ignore harmful cells like cancer. [read more]

5. The case for a systemic approach to eco-innovation - 2 December 2014, Lyon, France

Current patterns of growth lead to the irreversible damage of our planet’s natural environment while resources are over-consumed. Furthermore, prices of raw materials are becoming more and more volatile and Europe is almost entirely dependent on imports. The traditional linear model of production and consumption, where resources are extracted processed used and disposed of, needs to be changed. Single eco-innovative solutions have already been developed but they are often too local and sector-related. To achieve an absolute decoupling of growth from use of resources, society needs to adopt a different way of thinking. [read more]

6. CORDIS Express: Research for protecting and sharing our cultural heritage

This week’s CORDIS Express takes a look at research efforts that are helping to better preserve, protect and share European heritage and art. [read more]

7. EU researchers develop tools to promote novel food potential

EU-funded researchers have developed a toolbox to improve communication and increase the success rate of novel food technologies in Europe. [read more]

8. European Robotics Week 2014 - over 300 events!

Over 300 events are scheduled to take place in 20 countries all across Europe! A new music festival? No! It's the European Robotics Week 2014. [read more]

9. Research Headlines - Car collision avoidance sensors inspired by locusts

Efficiently detecting possible collisions is vital for the locust - an insect that often needs to quickly overcome big obstacles and avoid what might be, otherwise, a 'fatal crash'. The research team involved in the European Union (EU)-funded project NEURAL DEVELOPMENT has studied the insect's nerve circuits. The project results are expected to help develop highly accurate collision sensors in cars, surveillance technology and video games. [read more]

10. Success Stories - Advanced genomics for livestock breeding, health and welfare

Europe is home to a high proportion of the world's leading animal breeding organisations. Research being carried out by an EU-funded QUANTOMICS project is helping these breeders to remain competitive in global markets. [read more]
