Could the citizenship rights enjoyed by EU citizens be under threat? Are Europeans fully aware of their citizenship rights - and using them to full effect? In the 21st Century, what does it really mean to be a Citizen of the EU? It’s twenty years since the Maastricht Treaty introduced the idea of EU citizenship – but that citizenship is now under pressure as never before. A 4-year major research project - bEUcitizen - All Rights Reserved? Barriers towards EUropean CITIZENship – has explored these challenges and can now reveal how best to respond to them. The project’s final conference will be held at the Residence Palace, 175 rue de la Loi, 1048 Brussels on 26-28th April 2017. [read more]
An intelligent system developed by EU-funded researchers can provide buses and coaches with firefighting capabilities. This integrated solution is designed to detect, locate and suppress fires quickly. It can address some of them before they even start. [read more]
Big city life can mean a lack of green living spaces, especially in more crowded, less affluent urban areas. TURAS, an EU-funded project, demonstrated ways to add green to the grey - transforming stressful urban areas into more liveable and sustainable spaces where local communities can thrive. [read more]
HLRC 2018 offers delegates the opportunity to hear from and interact with thought leaders and practitioners in health research, policy and practice, who are all working to address global health challenges. Attended by leading academic staff, healthcare industry, researchers, policy makers, funding agency leaders, NGOs, the private sector, health providers and practitioners, and government representatives, the congress offers a perfect opportunity to network, partner, learn and collaborate to drive collaboration in bench to bedside research. HLRC offers the best case studies, most important policy developments and an opportunity to network with other delegates who are aiming to build global partnerships in health research, or implement the latest research results with their patients or hospitals.

The production of cement and lime involves fossil fuels and produces harmful greenhouse gases. Industry could change this, if scientists can develop a technology that can use solar power for high temperature industrial processes. The EU-funded SOLPART project has built lab-scale reactors that use a solar powered process to meet this need. [read more]
Each year the UK Research Office (UKRO) organises a two-day conference aimed primarily at European Liaison Officers, European research managers, Research Councils and policy makers. The 2017 edition of the UKRO Conference will take place from Thursday 22 to Friday 23 June at the Centre for Life in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. The conference programme invites a number of excellent speakers to inform and stimulate discussions with conference participants. [read more]
A throng of 28 miniature satellites designed by EU-funded researchers are winging their way to the International Space Station (ISS). The rocket carrying the satellites was launched in the early hours of 18 April, and is due to dock at the ISS in the coming days. The satellites are expected to be deployed at the end of April or early May, while another launch - containing another 8 satellites - is foreseen for May. [read more]
From 31 May to 2 June 2017, KU Leuven (Belgium) hosts the 5th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event (ECE) on the SET-Plan Core Priority “N°1 in Renewable Energy”. The event intends to stimulate discussion among university leaders on the development of innovative and multidisciplinary research and education programmes. The conference will also offer specific opportunities for “clustering” knowledge, in which research and education leaders from different disciplines will present their views on the specific priorities of the SET-Plan. The event is the fifth of the series of six events aiming to mobilise Europe’s university community in the field of energy. [read more]
This conference offers a platform for worldwide researchers and scientists from academia, industry and government to discuss proposals and disseminate results on sustainable energy and materials and its impact on engineering and our Environment. The formation of lasting productive partnerships between the participants is also an objective of this conference. This research conference is open to all in the research and scientific community. All presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings. Selected papers will be invited for consideration as a full peer review submission of the conference journals. [read more]
The damage done by chronic kidney disease is irreversible: once the illness has taken hold, the organ can't be healed. Patients' prospects and quality of life would be much improved if the condition could be spotted sooner. An EU-funded project has developed a biomarker test to pick up very early signs of diabetic kidney disease, and identified possible improvements in the approach to therapy. [read more]
