If no further action is taken and global temperature increases by 3.5°C, climate damages in the EU could amount to at least €190 billion, a net welfare loss of 1.8% of its current GDP. Several weather-related extremes could roughly double their average frequency. As a consequence, heat-related deaths could reach about 200 000. [read more]
Access to biological resources such as cells and tissue samples is the lifeblood of biomedical research. Biobanks and biomolecular resource centres collect, store and distribute this material, the related data and powerful analytical tools, but none of them can single-handedly meet the growing, diverse needs of Europe's research community. EU funding has enabled major repositories to link up and share these resources. [read more]
This conference is timed to follow the publication of RCUK's review of the impact of Open Access so far - expected early 2015 - and will focus on key remaining implementation issues as well as looking forward to next steps for policy in light of the UK government's stated aim of adopting an Open Data culture for publicly funded research.
