Very few of us have heard of Alpha-Mannosidosis. However, this rare genetic disease has affected the lives of hundreds of families across Europe and the world. Its first symptoms appear in early childhood and include hearing loss, progressive facial and skeletal deformity, mental retardation, multiple organ abnormalities and recurrent infections, while, in its most aggressive form, it could lead to an early death.

Is it possible to drive on greener, more resistant truck tyres that consume less fuel? In this edition of Futuris we go on a voyage of discovery into the science of the tyres of the future. Researchers at an EU research project are working here to develop a new generation of truck tyres designed to reduce fuel consumption, be longer-lasting and increase safety. [read more]

Climate forecasts depend in particular on precise information - not only to estimate how living conditions on Earth may change, but also how humanity will have to adapt to these changes. A European Union (EU)-funded project, MACC, has developed an innovative system to collect and coordinate precise information to aid in these climate forecasts. [read more]

On September 24, the COEURE Coordination Action will hold its Opening Conference in Brussels at Diamant Conference Center.The COoperation on EUropean Research in Economics Coordination Action is intended to bring together the key stakeholders in the European economic research space – scientists, users of research in the policy community or the private sector, and funders of research – in a process of stocktaking, consultation and evaluation in order to propose an Agenda for Research Funding for Economics in Europe. COEURE is financed under the 7th Framework Programme.The main objectives of COEURE are to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the European research in economics and to map the frontiers of economic research, assessing the European contribution to these frontiers and evaluating its potential to contribute to the policy issues on the European 2020 Agenda.This conference’s objective is to mobilize the community of researchers in economics, decision makers on economic affairs and managers of economic research around COEURE.
