A virus-resistant plum tree could save growers billions of euros from crop losses, according to EU-funded researchers who are helping the European agricultural industry reinforce defences against disease and the impact of climate change. [read more]
The next generation of particle colliders will demand unprecedented precision in the alignment of their components. EU-funded researchers have pushed the limits with new techniques for the accurate positioning of scientific equipment. [read more]
Science Café with Thomas Jung is an unconventional open discussion with theme "Phytophthora species – threats for our nature". Thomas Jung is one of the most renowned Phytophthora experts in the world. Phytophthora is a genus of plant-damaging Oomycetes (water molds), whose member species are capable of causing enormous economic losses on crops worldwide, as well as environmental damage in natural ecosystems. Thomas Jung produced the first evidences of Phytophthora pathogens being involved in widespread forest declines in Europe and coordinated the largest forest disease survey in European history.

An EU-funded project developed dry misting systems for fruits and vegetables in transport, storage and supermarket displays that can prolong their shelf life, helping in the fight against food waste. [read more]
A new EU-funded automated approach for producing customised components is set for integration into manufacturing production lines. The process makes the technique of powder metallurgy faster and more energy efficient, boosting industrial competitiveness. [read more]
If railways could ensure maintenance didn't disrupt rail services, trains could be the main arteries of Europe's transportation infrastructure. The EU-funded OPTIRAIL project has developed a new framework to better maintain railways - it could even unify rail networks across Europe, making the continent a more competitive global force.

EU-funded researchers are working on novel, more effective contrast agents - the substances that make the contrast between, for example, muscle and bone, in MRI scans. This new level of detail will improve diagnostics and help ensure people receive the right treatment. [read more]
EU-funded researchers have developed a carbon with tiny pores that could prevent infection of livers by intestinal bacteria - a common complication in chronic liver disease. The material could improve patients' quality of life and chances of survival, while reducing the use of antibiotics in managing the disease. [read more]
Young researchers are developing next-generation manufacturing processes for medicines and chemicals in an EU-funded network. Their innovative and green solutions aim to boost industrial competitiveness. [read more]
Does our increasing reliance on smartphones make data more vulnerable? An EU-funded project's recommendations on cybersecurity aim to inform policymakers on the best approaches to protect personal data and improve trust in mobile applications. [read more]
