171. EU researchers explore pathways for transition to sustainable lifestyles

Using knowledge co-production and modelling tools, the GLAMURS project investigates how we can transition to more sustainable lifestyles. [read more]

172. Research Headlines - Innovative textiles to boost EU seaweed farming

Seaweed is an important but under-exploited resource for food and feed ingredients, biochemicals and the production of biofuels. But it has been difficult to harvest efficiently on a large scale. Until now. The EU-funded AT~SEA project has developed advanced textiles that give high yields from floating seaweed farms and allow easy, mechanised cultivation. [read more]

173. Success Stories - New horizons in international goods transport

Much as we try to evade it, age catches us all. But are there ways to reverse or slow down the ageing process at a cellular level? An international project examining the biological changes that occur inside our bodies looked at the role of stem cells in organs and tissues, which could lead to a radical new understanding of ageing. [read more]

174. Success Stories - New tests drive better fire safety protection for travellers

EU-funded researchers have developed new tests to help protect travellers from toxic gases in case of a train fire. Their work could lead to safer trains and help develop Europe-wide fire standards for public transport. [read more]

175. Success Stories - The Euro-Asian collaboration unravelling the mysteries of ageing

Much as we try to evade it, age catches us all. But are there ways to reverse or slow down the ageing process at a cellular level? An international project examining the biological changes that occur inside our bodies looked at the role of stem cells in organs and tissues, which could lead to a radical new understanding of ageing.

176. Success Stories - Waste: the final industrial frontier

Industrial waste can be an asset rather than an economic and environmental cost – the key is to find someone who can use it. An EU-funded project has demonstrated that establishing regional networks for waste by-products and materials is not only possible, but can be profitable for all involved. [read more]

177. The first SPICED newsletter is available

SPICED is the acronym for “Securing the spices and herbs commodity chains in Europe against deliberate, accidental or natural biological and chemical contamination”. The aim of the newsletter is to create awareness among the stakeholder groups about the SPICED objectives and emerging results and to establish a regular dialog. [read more]

178. Ebola: A speculative concept that could provide a direct avenue for the detection of an incipient outbreak.

Outbreak episodes correspond to periods of maximum fruit production during the rainy season. This is associated with: 1) dramatic seasonal changes in foraging behaviour in primates, bats, birds, etc 2) as well as large increases in insect biomass. Let's read our document! [read more]

179. Events - International Year of Family Farming: lessons learnt and post-2014 priorities - 2 December 2014, Brussels

Cirad, a French Agricultural Research Centre for International Development, organises once per year an after work meeting bringing together EU officials, researchers and other stakeholders to share views and reflect on agricultural research and global challenges. The 2014 edition is dedicated to "The International Year of Family Farming: lessons learnt and post-2014 priorities". [read more]

180. GRIP Session - Green Ship Technology Conference 2015 - 12 March 2015, Copenhagen, Denmark

GRIP (Green Retrofitting through Improved Propulsion) has been a three-year project with a total budget of 4.1 million euros, partly funded by the European Union under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7). The aim of the GRIP project has been to reduce fuel consumption in shipping by 5% (with individual ships up to 10%) by the design, production and retrofitting of an Energy Saving Device to an operational ship. The GRIP Project will be holding a session at the Green Ship Technology Conference 2015 during the morning of the 12th March 2015 – Copenhagen, Denmark. This session is being held to present the work that has been carried out throughout the project lifecycle, and the results that have been obtained. For further information please contact grip@eurtd.
