41. Success Stories - New research to help manage migration locally

In most European countries migration is particularly managed at the national level. The European Union (EU)-funded project, MIGRATION POLICY, has challenged the way in which research on migration studies is almost exclusively focused on national models and perspectives. The Marie Curie research fellow has shown that regional and city authorities are taking more responsibility in managing migration, thus helping change the way Europeans relate to their governments.

42. Success Stories - Protecting cultural heritage in Europe

Ancient and historical masterpieces are often exposed to the potential harmful effects of a changing environment or inappropriate restoration and handling. Until recently, the lack of a wider perspective of the heritage conservation activities in Europe, as well as the absence of a universally accepted code as to what constitutes best practice to conserve art and artefacts, have been limiting factors to the development of European research in this field.

43. Success Stories - Using satellites to get a closer look at erupting volcanoes

A European Union (EU)-funded project has developed a new satellite-based system to collect and disseminate information on volcanoes worldwide. Monitoring and studying active volcanoes on the ground can be difficult, dangerous or even impossible, particularly during an eruption. Without these accurate, real-time measurements, scientists cannot fully assess the hazards posed by lava flows and clouds of gases and ash. [read more]

46. Muons help understand mechanism behind hydrogen storage

Contrarily to what was previously thought, hydrogenation could be more effective at low temperatures. [read more]

47. Nanotechnology for Water Treatment - 20-21 January 2015, Barcelona, Spain

Water treatment and purification is a challenge for the current and upcoming generations. Membrane processes, nanosized materials and the combination from both offer a wide range of possibilities and ways for water treatment by means of filtration and catalytic processes. The nano4water cluster is a focal point for EU research in nano-enabled water treatment. The workshop aims on bringing together activities and results to find synergies and boost development status and ways into application. [read more]

48. Press Centre - EU-funded researchers discover a completely new antibiotic

A completely new antibiotic to help combat drug resistance has been discovered by the EU-funded NABATIVI project. It is now in clinical trials in collaboration with a world-leading pharmaceutical company. [read more]

49. Press Centre - How the revision of the European System of Accounts (ESA 2010) impacts research and development statistics

In September 2014, the European System of Accounts (ESA), which sets down the harmonised methodology used for the production of national accounts data in the EU, was revised. ESA 2010 replaced the previous methodology ESA 1995 to reflect the substantial changes of the economic environment. This adaptation of the system of accounts is not only European, but world-wide.

50. Research Headlines - New test for sexually transmitted virus could reduce cancer risks

One of the keys for treating and reducing the spread of sexually transmitted diseases is accurate, fast and affordable means of detection. This is especially true for the human papillomavirus (HPV), a common sexually transmitted virus that, according to medical researchers, is the leading cause of cervical cancer. [read more]
