42. Research Headlines - New weapons in the fight against antibiotic resistance

Antibiotics are amongst the most crucial discoveries in modern medicine. However, the surge in microbial resistance to these, now common, drugs is a challenge that medical researchers work hard to tackle. Prof. Susanne Häußler from the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research believes early diagnostic tools could shift the paradigm of how we battle this problem. [read more]

43. What should be in your Digital Toolbox? Conference - 10 October 2016, London, United Kingdom

This one-day event will showcase how innovative technology is being applied to the humanities and natural sciences. The conference speakers will demonstrate how researchers, curators and enthusiasts can use digital tools to explore historical and scientific material in new ways. An example is the EU-funded READ project, which seeks to unlock complex handwritten material in archival collections, to automatically index digital images of text, and to teach computers how to transcribe handwritten text. Cutting-edge transcription technology developed as part of the READ project will be demonstrated and discussed. [read more]

49. Research Headlines - Cutting congestion with connected driving

'Connected driving' technologies will enable vehicles to connect and share information with one another, as well as with infrastructure and other parts of the transport network. Eventually this will facilitate decision-making, reducing the likelihood of collisions and helping improve traffic flow. But for this to happen, more accurate positioning information is needed - which is where the EU-funded HIGHTS project comes in. [read more]
