91. Research Headlines - Geoscience tools help us better manage Earth's resources

Soil, water and metals are being exploited by agricultural practices, mining and human consumption faster than ever before. To better manage our use of these precious resources, we need to understand how they are made and destroyed at molecular level. On a mission to join the dots and help us use the Earth's resources more sustainably, the EU-funded IsoNose project is using isotopic techniques to measure geochemical processes. [read more]

92. Research Headlines - Harnessing high-performance computing to manage financial risk

Since the global financial crisis a decade ago, banks, asset managers, insurers and regulators have been seeking better ways to manage financial risk. The solution may lie in high-performance computing, say EU-funded researchers who have developed novel financial models and algorithms to improve their financial risk management. [read more]

93. Research Headlines - MEET the next generation of mitochondrial researchers

An EU-funded project has trained a new generation of researchers in mitochondrial disease - a range of rare disorders emerging as a new field of medical interest. The research, which included the discovery of novel genes associated with the disease, is feeding into the search for better diagnosis and treatment for the disorder. [read more]

94. Research Headlines - Modelling techniques boost climate knowledge

EU-funded researchers are transferring modelling and analysis techniques used in other disciplines to climate science in a bid to improve predictions of climate events like El Niño. The research feeds into efforts to better understand complex weather patterns and their impact on the environment, economic activities and society. [read more]

95. Research Headlines - New techniques target protein clumps linked to Alzheimer's and cancer

An EU-funded project has gained new insights into abnormal protein deposits linked to some 40 diseases, including Alzheimer's, diabetes, and cancer. The cutting-edge research has contributed to promising new techniques to treat these potentially devastating diseases. [read more]

96. Research Headlines - Ordinary Muslims in European daily life

Headscarves, mosques and halal shops - many EU citizens are Muslims, but visible signs of their faith are often viewed with distrust. What some Europeans see as a right to express their identity, others regard as a threat to societal core values. Insights from ERC-funded research into emblematic controversies may help to find a way forward. [read more]

97. Research Headlines - Political ecology: promoting better environmental policy

Enhanced knowledge and understanding of political ecology should help EU governments achieve better, forward-looking and more sustainable management of their environment. An EU-funded network is training the next generation of researchers in this emerging field of social science. [read more]

98. Press Centre - Commission launches new Horizon 2020 Dashboard

The European Commission has launched a new online presentation of implementation data of Horizon 2020, the EU's research and innovation programme. [read more]

99. Research Headlines - Advancing the treatment of melanoma

There is still a lot to learn about the genetic changes that occur as melanoma tumours form - and about the body's response to this illness. Greater understanding could help to predict how individual tumours are likely to respond to various combinations of therapies. An EU-funded network is training young researchers who are exploring this issue. [read more]

100. Research Headlines - Breaking down barriers to develop new anticancer drugs

Infectious diseases and cancer are the focus of the EU-funded project INPACT, which combines the expertise of both academic and industrial partners in protein engineering to develop new drug leads. [read more]
