In the light of the major role geology plays (often unknowingly) in a multitude of economic areas, the Geological Society of London (GSL) produced in 2014 a major report named 'Geology for Society' that has been translated, thanks to the collaboration of the European Federation of Geologists (EFG) and its national membership associations, into 14 languages so far.

This workshop will be held during the International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems. The aim of this workshop is to provide a structured approach from user needs to the deployment of intelligent robot and system solutions to improve the quality of life of elders, impaired persons and everybody else by augmenting mobility, manipulation and cognitive capabilities of the users. Researchers are invited to submit either a 4-6 page paper or a 2 page extended abstract that relates to the workshop theme before 20th July 2015. [read more]
A strong decline in emissions from human-made aerosols will drive changes to large scale atmospheric circulation and hence affect wind power density off-shore and solar radiation in Europe and northern Africa, according to JRC report analysing these two renewables in 2030-2050. [read more]
104. Into the Deep
Biodiversity is an important indicator of the health and functioning of underwater ecosystems. However, deep-sea environments remain largely unknown, due to the irregularity of the landscapes and the challenging conditions in the depths of the Ocean. The aim of the ERC CODEMAP project, Dr Huvenne's research funded by the ERC, is to map complex deep-sea habitats, quantify habitat heterogeneity and test its potential as a proxy for biodiversity.

Cellular regeneration allows wound healing in humans but in other vertebrates such as salamanders, it goes a step further: they can regenerate their limbs in their full complexity of bones, nerves, muscle and skin and can do it over and over again. Prof. Elly Tanaka studies these amazing capacities and, mirroring the process, has successfully grown a piece of mouse spinal cord in vitro. [read more]
In 2012, 40 researchers, technicians and operators from 17 European institutions joined forces in the EU’s CRISMA project to develop simulation and modeling solutions that help public authorities and rescue teams prepare for crisis situations. Now to conclude the project, the consortium will present its concepts for modeling and simulation. [read more]
Where water is scarce, it makes sense to make the most of what you receive for free. An EU-funded project is studying the different ways Africa's farmers can increase the volume of rain and river water collected, to improve crop yields and bridge dry spells. [read more]
Adolescence is marked by significant physical, cognitive and socio-emotional changes. Despite these well-known developments, the neural mechanisms supporting this phase of growth in the life of human beings remain unknown. Prof. Eveline Crone has carried out for the first time a longitudinal study to investigate the brain processes underlying the behaviour of teenagers. [read more]
The EU-funded FP7 project RECODE has leveraged existing networks, communities and projects to address challenges within the open access and data dissemination and preservation sector. On the basis of this work, RECODE now presents policy recommendations on open access to research data. [read more]
