1. Research Headlines - Understanding cancer progression to improve treatment

As Europe's population ages, cancer has become the leading cause of death. Therapeutic targeting - changing the activity of a protein or nucleic acid with a stimulus - is of limited use because of the complexity of cancer: changes take place within the tumour cell itself, but also in the cell's microenvironment. An EU-funded project will increase understanding of cancer progression and provide the basis for new, targeted approaches. [read more]

2. SAVE THE DATE! 1st FUTURE SKY SAFETY Public Workshop - 8-9 March 2017, Brussels (Haren), EUROCONTROL Headquarters - Room Europe Rue de la Fusée, 96

Future Sky Safety, the EU-funded Joint Research Programme in the field of aviation safety is pleased to announce its First External Workshop on “Future Sky Safety: a Joint Programme for Aviation safety”.The Public Workshop will be held in Brussels, at EUROCONTROL Headquarters, on the 8th and 9th of March, 2017.

3. Research Headlines - Sailing towards market-ready, low-energy, zero-emission ships

Using a range of new technologies, EU-funded researchers are on a mission to create greener ships. They plan to cut fuel use and CO2 emissions by 25%, and other emissions (sulphur oxide, nitrogen oxide, particulate matter) by 100%. [read more]

4. Silicon in a new light

All modern electronic devices use integrated circuits built on silicon. But silicon can’t do everything and one thing it cannot do is give out light. There are no silicon LEDs or lasers. It is rather better at detecting light, and can do so in the ultraviolet and visible regions of the spectrum, but fails in the near infrared, being unable to sense radiation longer than about 1.2 microns.
