Many ideas for EU-funded projects are born in the quest to further scientific research, particularly in areas where little information exists. This applies to the project CoralFISH, which has uncovered information on how fish use their habitats in the deep sea, and as a result new tools and methodologies have been developed to address this lack of data. The project partners also assessed the interaction between corals, fish and fisheries, and then used this information to develop monitoring and predictive modelling tools for ecosystem-based management in the deep waters of Europe and beyond.

The European Commission, Open Innovation Strategy and Policy Group, Intel Labs Europe, Dublin City Council, Trinity College Dublin co-organise the unique working conference, in May 2013, Dublin. Open Innovation 2.0 (OI2) is a new paradigm based on principles of integrated collaboration, shared value, new innovation ecosystems and rapid adoption. It is the new paradigm for individuals and organisations to generate prosperity and harness the opportunities together. OI2 has a significant impact is Sustainable economy and society. The collision of digital transformations, mass collaboration and sustainability creates a multitude of new opportunities and options where services can be created, improving quality of life while achieving better resource efficiencies and high value creation.

For Kerstin Lindblad-Toh, of the University of Uppsala in Sweden, news that the European Union (EU) was to provide funding for a project aimed at using research into canine genetics as a kind of 'fast-track' to help provide cures for many important human diseases marked the achievement of a long-held ambition.

Much has been said about the effect of climate change, but little is known about its impact of water-related health issues. Scientists are now suggesting that greater quantities of rainfall and bigger storms could be responsible for more unsettled stomachs in parts of Europe. The VIROCLIME project has studied the impact of climate change on the transport, fate and risk management of viral pathogens in water. Quality validation date: 2013-04-29 [read more]
I guess my main concern about the future is Europe's ability to move forward. Because Europe used to be this big boat that is really stable and doesn't take a lot of decisions and I really believe that the world is changing really quickly right now and we need to be able to adapt to it, also as quickly as possible.

Research & innovation is very important but equally important, I think, is to help those researchers implement their inventions. So when governments fund research, they should also help those researchers think of a business plan maybe, or what are the practical usages of their research, because I think in a lot of projects, now, you have the scientists and they find these amazing things and then it stops, because they're not business people. So, I think, this synergy of business and science could really help us further. [read more]
I would say, first the rise of nationalism, or even regionalism in our country, the end of Europe, or some kind of a doom scenario like that, global warming and the rising in the occurence of cancers or important diseases. [read more]
