Removing a tumor without a scalpel or x-rays? This is possible thanks to a certain type of ultrasound: Strong, concentrated ultrasonic waves are directed at the patient's body in such a way that they heat and kill individual cancer cells. The new Trans-Fusimo project will use this technique for treating cancer in moving organs, especially the liver. The EU has granted just over €4 Million for this. [read more]
The EHR4CR project, co-funded by the EU and organiser of this conference, has developed a platform that improves and speeds up the process of clinical trials, anonymously linking to patients' Electronic Health Records (EHRs). Important, since slow clinical trials can be dangerous in case a pandemic breaks out. There is a video and a conference. [read more]
Demand for turf grass sod production is increasing yearly but, at the same time, producers are facing spiralling costs for fertilizers, pesticides and irrigation water. SODSAT, a two-year, EU-funded project hopes to increase the competitiveness of Europe's turf grass producers by providing a novel remote intelligent turf management system. The SODSAT initiative, which is being coordinated by the Maltese company ATEKNEA SOLUTIONS, aims to achieve this by means of artificial intelligence and satellite imaging.

Today the JRC celebrates the 10th anniversary of the launch of the European Reference Material (ERM®) cooperation at the Analytica Exhibition in Munich. The anniversary coincides with the release of a new certified reference material for mycotoxin testing. [read more]
Peering into the very depths of the universe gives scientists a better understanding of its origins. Since the speed of light is finite, the objects we are seeing are from the distant past. A recently completed EU-funded project developed not only a new means of measuring these cosmic distances, but also discovered galaxies at the point of their creation. [read more]
Recent medical advances have seen our life expectancy increase significantly. However, so has the risk of developing cancer and neurological, genetic, or autoimmune diseases, all caused by protein mutations. COST Action BM1307 "PROTEOSTASIS" has set up an international network focusing on the reasons behind protein mutations, investigating a particular role that proteins play in carrying out cellular functions.

Fifteen companies from across the EU have been recognised today for their outstanding energy-saving with the GreenLight and GreenBuildings awards. The awards were presented at the Improving Energy Efficiency in Commercial Buildings (IEECB'14) conference in Frankfurt, Germany. [read more]
How can pressure cells contribute to help tackling the rapidly growing problem of degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer? This is one of the issues a new project funded by NMI3 will seek to address. Under the project, the German-based Julich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) hope to develop a new pressure cell for research possibilities in several scientific fields. They are valuable tools for neutron scattering because they make it possible to analyse samples under preselected pressure conditions where they are more stable.
