181. Use of IB in Biosurfactants - 3 September 2014, Berlin, Germany

The BIO-TIC project has organised this workshop with the aim to identify technological, non-technological and market hurdles for the uptake of industrial biotechnology in bio-surfactants and develop recommendations and solutions to overcome the identified hurdles. Input from market, policy and technological experts is crucial to help us develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry and further build on the roadmaps being developed as part of this project. Biobased surfactants can be produced either from oils and fats via oleochemical production or from sugars, e.g. molasses by fermentation. [read more]

182. CORDIS Express: EU research takes to the skies

Air transport is the mode that has experienced the fastest growth in recent years. Global air transport is expected to grow by around 5 % annually until 2030 while in Europe, flight movements will to double by that time. That's a significant jump considering we already have some of the busiest skies in the world with as many as 33 000 flights a day. Quality validation date: 2014-06-27 [read more]

184. New concepts of mobility to foster career development and gender balance in Europe

A session on ‘New concepts of mobility to foster career development and gender balance in Europe’ was jointly organised by the European Science Foundation (ESF) and the mobile Women in Science Engineering and Technology (m-WiSET) working group of Marie Curie Fellows Association (MCFA). As part of... [read more]

185. Research Headlines - Exploring biodiversity to produce sustainable cosmetics and agrochemicals

AGROCOS is a pioneering European project which is using modern scientific techniques to explore the ancient – and still largely untapped - richness of nature to develop new products for the agrochemical and cosmetics industries. [read more]

186. Success Stories - Deciphering the drivers of appetite to support a healthier diet

In recent decades the developed world has benefitted from a significant increase in the amount and variety of readily available food. But this abundance of food, often high in fat and sugar, may be also contributing to an increase in obesity. [read more]

187. Testing nano materials to build consumer confidence

Engineered nano materials (ENM) are being used more and more in a variety of commercial products. Because of their unique properties and applications, ENM offer the promise of immense technological and economic benefits to industry and consumers. However, there is also concern that some of these properties may be harmful to humans. Quality validation date: 2014-06-27 [read more]

188. Chip to Cloud Security Forum - 23-25 September 2014, Marseille, France

Chip-to-Cloud Security Forum provides an independent conference platform dedicated to advance end-to-end digital security. It covers all technical aspects of all assets protection of embedded, mobile, M2M and Cloud services and ecosystems. Its scope ranges from the foundations such as cryptography, hardware security mechanisms and embedded software security technologies, including end user verification by biometry, to the latest developments of security services delivered through the Cloud.

189. Cloud computing: facilitating cutting edge collaborative research

Cloud computing - where storage facilities are provided on demand over the internet from shared data centres - enables effective research collaboration to blossom. Rather than having to purchase a cluster of computers or struggle to find space at the lab, researchers can outsource their computing storage needs to remote facilities in the cloud and make this data accessible to colleagues. In order to facilitate closer research collaboration, an EU-funded project entitled HELIX NEBULA (HNX) has created an online platform where customers can choose between various cloud service suppliers.

190. Day 3 Graphene Week: Tips on How to Get Published

Add a video abstract to your academic article and on average it will attract three times the number of downloads. Do not use unnecessarily complicated language. Also, if you write about something that is disruptive and can attract a huge crowd, it is far more likely that the article will be published. These were just three of the tips and insights provided by editors from Physical Review Letters, 2D Materials and three different Nature journals during a Graphene Week fringe session on research publishing. First up on the third day of Graphene Week in Gothenburg was Tony Heinz from Columbia University in the USA. [read more]
