111. Sailing through Changing Oceans: Ocean and Polar Life and Environmental Sciences on a Warming Planet

In the current context of Global Change, sustainable and responsible exploitation of the Oceans can be realised only through a deep understanding of the Ocean processes and of the associated ecosystems spanning every latitude of Planet Earth. This is the key concept advocated by a new position... [read more]

112. Success Stories - Slick operation: new device to remove oil from troubled waters

Marine oil spills can be extremely difficult to deal with, requiring a lot of time and effort by experts to remove the pollutant from the surface of the water. [read more]

113. Sustainable Nuclear Energy Conference - 12-14 April 2016, Nottingham, UK

The conference will look at the nuclear cycle from cradle to grave with a focus on current reactor systems, future systems and fuels, advanced fuel cycles and the new challenges of decommissioning and waste management. Call for papers under the following broad themes: • Current reactor systems • Future or alternative reactor systems and fuels • Advanced fuel cycles • New challenges in decommissioning, waste management and disposal • Advanced uses of nuclear fission Visit the website for full details [read more]

114. Trending science: Evaporating water powers mini car

115. 'Geology for Society' report launch at the European Parliament

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.

116. Bridging user needs to deployed applications of service robots - Call for papers

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]

117. Intense aerosols reduction to affect wind and solar energy availability in coming decades - 17 Jun 2015

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]

118. 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.

The latest research*eu results magazine is now available in free, accessible PDF. [read more]

120. Research Headlines - Salamanders: unearthing the mystery of limb regeneration

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]
