61. Success Stories - An eye on Earth-shattering events

The EU-funded DORIS project has developed highly accurate uses for newly available Earth-observation satellite technologies to monitor and warn of potential ground movements, such as landslides, which could save billions in clean-up costs and thousands of lives. With predicted strong market demand, the technologies look set to have a long-term and sustainable impact across Europe. [read more]

62. Success Stories - Climate change: learning from the past to safeguard the future

How much can we really predict about the impact of climate change on groups of animals, plants, and natural habitats? The EU-funded Ecochange project turned to fossil records to investigate how species respond to even minor changes. Scientists can use this research to design ways to protect biodiversity from climate change. [read more]

63. Success Stories - Stem cells use 'first aid kits' to repair damage

Neural stem cells – master cells that can develop into any type of nerve cell-are able to generate mini 'first aid kits' and transfer them to immune cells. This is the result of a study published today in Molecular Cell, and led by ERC grantee Prof. Stefano Pluchino, based at the University of Cambridge (UK). [read more]

The European Union (EU) has maintained a very rich scientific and technological relationship with its largest neighbouring country, Russia. In fact, since 2005, both the EU and Russia have committed to creating a 'Common Space on Research, Education and Culture'. The BILAT-RUS and ERA.Net RUS projects are two key initiatives for developing this 'Common Space'. Both projects have strived for durable partnerships and bilateral research programmes between the EU and Russia. [read more]
