1. 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]

2. Success Stories - Medical engineering: New non-metal 'bone-preserving' hip replacement

Hip operations are one of the most common medical procedures in Europe. But a significant number of replacements fail prematurely due to poor fitting and wear-and-tear issues. New non-metallic implants developed by European researchers potentially offer a longer lasting, less invasive, more biocompatible alternative which poses a lower risk to patients. [read more]

8. Events - Innovation in waste management: Linking the ‘circular economy’ and the ‘waste hierarchy' - 26 November 2014, Espoo, Finland

The workshop addresses the macro environmental effects of the diffusion of non-landfill waste management technologies for MSW by adopting an LCA approach. During the session, the participants will explore possible changing pressures from shifting to non-landfill MSW management technologies. The presentations will explore observed ex post trends (1996-2011) and on ex ante scenarios (2012-2030 and beyond). The experts and guests are invited to discuss policy and economic implications of (saved) external costs from shifting to non-landfill MSW management technologies. See the workshop programme here: http://www.mince. [read more]
