131. Our impact today on tomorrow’s world

Prof. Christian Gollier is interested in risks and with his ERC grant, he aims to provide a new scientific approach to evaluating and managing collective long-term risks on the environment, including climate change, biodiversity, deforestation, nuclear wastes and many others. His research should contribute to identifying the right policies to confront long-term risks and to help collective decision-making at the right time. To meet these objectives, Prof. [read more]

132. Setting eyes on the dark side of the universe

Early in the twentieth century, Einstein revolutionised our understanding of fundamental physics by concluding that mass can warp the very fabric of space and time. Using a powerful new astronomical technique called gravitational lensing, astronomers can directly observe the way in which the light from very distant galaxies is bent as it passes through large structures of matter in the universe.

133. The role of civil society in democratization processes

Civil society studies have lately gained a lot of momentum. Prof. Della Porta is particularly interested in analysing the role of civil society organizations in the recent democratization processes across Europe and its neighbouring countries. [read more]

134. What happens in teenagers’ brains?

With her ERC grant, Prof. Crone has led a comprehensive study on a sample group of 299 teenagers, boys and girls, over a period of four years. The teens were observed during two different sessions, with a three-year interval. This longitudinal approach, tracking the same individuals over time, allows, rather than age comparisons, the examination of developmental trajectories in a single person and gives extensive information about individual development.

135. 19th International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA 2015) - Smart Systems for Green and Automated Driving - 7-8 July 2015, Berlin

Leading engineers and scholars from all around the world are cordially invited to participate in the dialogue and submit proposals for papers addres­sing ongoing research and novel developments in this field. Discussions at the conference will focus particularly on the application areas men­tioned below. A special attention will be given to topics covered in public funding programmes like the European Green Vehicles Initiative PPP of Horizon 2020. The AMAA 2015 will be opened with speeches by Willy Van Puymbroeck, Head of Unit Components, DG CNECT, European Commission and Stefan Mengel, Head of Unit Electronic Systems and Electric Mobility, Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Germany). Further keynote speakers include Remi Bastien (Renault), Patrice Reilhac (Valeo) and Fabio Marchio (ST Microelectronics) among others. [read more]

136. Basic Epigenetic Mechanisms in Cancer - 8-11 November 2015, Berlin

This conference will cover some of the most recent advances and cutting edge research in the field of epigenetics and its relationship to cancer. We have created a programme that brings together basic scientists with translational and clinical researchers. During the meeting, there will be great opportunities for young scientists to meet the experts in the field, and we aim to create an open and engaging environment for discussion. Recent advances in technology allow us to consider the epigenome as well as the genome of a tumour on an individual level. These advances, in combination with high throughput technologies, are leading to rapid advances in the development of epigenetic biomarkers and novel therapeutic targets. [read more]

137. CORDIS Express: Another Earth? Exoplanet exploration

This edition of CORDIS Express takes a look at research efforts supporting the race to discover and understand exoplanets. [read more]

138. Changes in shipping routes and speed as piracy declines in the Western Indian Ocean - 12 Jun 2015

With the decline of piracy incidents in the Western Indian Ocean, vessels have gradually returned to travelling along the shortest route, closer to Somalia, and to sailing again at normal speed, according to a JRC report. [read more]

139. ERA - European Research Area - June 2015 newsletter: Opening up to an ERA of Innovation

In this edition of the ERA newsletter, we look at the issues to be addressed during the conference ‘A new start for Europe: Opening up to an ERA of Innovation’ to be held in Brussels on 22-23 June 2015. The special focus article explores the profound and irreversible changes taking place in science and the policy response to these shifts. We also present the views of the ERA Stakeholder Organisations that will play a central role in the future of European science. [read more]

140. Research Headlines - Propelled towards more efficient ships and boats

An EU-funded project shows that alternative propulsion systems and new hull designs could improve the efficiency of ships and barges by at least 15%. More efficient vessels will help to keep prices - and emissions - down. [read more]
