The High-Level Group of Scientific Advisors, set up in the context of the Scientific Advice Mechanism (SAM) of the European Commission (see https://ec.europa.eu/research/sam/index.cfm), has been tasked by the Commission to provide advice based on scientific evidence on the issue of closing the gap between light duty vehicle real world CO2 emissions and laboratory testing. The advice is due to be delivered in late autumn and will inform the Commission's policy-making in the context of the post-2020 CO2 standards for light-duty vehicles. To gather a large diversity of views on the topic, the High-Level Group is organizing a meeting with policy, industry, civil society and scientific stakeholders which will take place on 15 September 2016, 14:00-17:00 in Brussels.

Trials in cities around the world have demonstrated that fuel-cell passenger buses can cut emissions and noise pollution while providing good quality public transport. New EU-funded projects could double Europe's fleet of hydrogen buses - reducing vehicle and infrastructure costs per bus to boost take-up of the technology. [read more]

The continued development and growing opportunities for commercialization of key enabling technologies (e.g., nanotechnology, synthetic biology, biomaterials) raises fundamental environmental health and safety (EHS) challenges for regulators in various governments. Even though existing practices for risk assessment and management (RA&M) are applicable to these technologies, their implementation requires information that is difficult to obtain given the limited availability of quantitative data to populate models corresponding to material exposure, hazard, and consequences.

The 47th World Congress of Surgery (WCS 2017) will make available the highest standards of surgery. The conference, organised by the International Society of Surgery (ISS/SIC), was formerly named ISW (International Surgery Week). [read more]
With her ERC grant, the 5000th awarded to a leading scientist in Europe, Dr Iva Tolić wants to push forward the frontiers of knowledge on the mechanical principles of cell division. To reach her goal, after spending several years in the USA, Denmark, Italy and Germany, she has moved back to Croatia where she is setting her new research team. The results of her ERC-funded project could lead to new insight in cell and molecular biology, potentially opening novel ways to treat cancer. [read more]
