113. 10 years ensuring the safety of feed additives - 14 Nov 2014

Today the JRC-managed European Reference Laboratory for Feed Additives (EURL-FA) marks 10 years of scientific and technical support to the EU legislation on feed additives, which ensures they are safe for use and traceable in the feed chain.The JRC-hosted EURL-FA went in operation in November 2004. Its main task is to support the authorisation procedure of feed additives that are used in the European Union. [read more]

114. CORDIS Express: Robots come of age!

This week’s edition of CORDIS Express takes a look at EU-funded robotics research projects, as well as news and events in the field. [read more]

115. Clear communication is key for the success of personalised nutrition

EU-funded researchers have shown that consumers given clear nutritional information are more likely to be open to personalised nutrition. [read more]

116. Research Headlines - New stent to help lung cancer victims breathe easier

Many lung cancer patients have trouble breathing - and if they can't be cured, the struggle for air can become a relentless ordeal. Pulmonary stents - tubes inserted in the lung - can help. EU-funded researchers are taking this technique another step ahead with a new type of stent designed to improve and potentially extend the lives of people going through the final stages of the disease.

117. Success Stories - 0.05mm: a new accuracy standard for industrial robots

An EU-funded project brought together industry and scientists to develop pioneering ways for industrial robots to be more accurate, significantly reducing the time and cost of machining processes. Software and know-how from the project is already generating new business for Europe's robotic industry. [read more]

118. Success Stories - An eye on Earth-shattering events

The EU-funded DORIS project has developed highly accurate uses for newly available Earth-observation satellite technologies to monitor and warn of potential ground movements, such as landslides, which could save billions in clean-up costs and thousands of lives. With predicted strong market demand, the technologies look set to have a long-term and sustainable impact across Europe. [read more]

119. Success Stories - Climate change: learning from the past to safeguard the future

How much can we really predict about the impact of climate change on groups of animals, plants, and natural habitats? The EU-funded Ecochange project turned to fossil records to investigate how species respond to even minor changes. Scientists can use this research to design ways to protect biodiversity from climate change. [read more]

120. Success Stories - Stem cells use 'first aid kits' to repair damage

Neural stem cells – master cells that can develop into any type of nerve cell-are able to generate mini 'first aid kits' and transfer them to immune cells. This is the result of a study published today in Molecular Cell, and led by ERC grantee Prof. Stefano Pluchino, based at the University of Cambridge (UK). [read more]
