More scientists, techniques and collaborations are needed to characterise nuclear materials, and so deterring illicit trafficking and terrorism, according to a JRC article published in today's Nature edition. Ten to 15 times per year officials detect unlawful nuclear materials by measuring radiation directly or acting on tip-offs from police or intelligence work. Uranium and plutonium are most worrying because they do not only pose a radiological hazard, but may also point to nuclear terrorism or proliferation. [read more]

While marine microorganisms have long been identified as an untapped resource of biotechnological potential, their exploitation has been hampered by the difficulty and expense of isolating their valuable novel chemicals and molecules. As a result, the vast majority of marine microorganisms have until now not been properly cultivated. This is a wasted opportunity, and is something that the EU-funded Marine Microorganisms: Cultivation Methods for improving their Biotechnological Applications (MaCuMBA) project aims to rectify.

Most of the analysis presented in the Monitor is based on reports produced by the JRC. [read more]
Mapping the development of babies while they are still in the womb is the premise of a European project which aims to design techniques designed to pinpoint problems earlier, and develop appropriate therapies. The dHCP ('Developing Human Connectome Project') project aims to create a picture of how babies' brains develop and how they form connections - particularly during the third trimester. This is being made possible thanks to a synergy grant from the European Research Council (ERC) of EUR 3. [read more]
Launched today at the European Development Days in Brussels, EU Aid Explorer is a unique web tool that provides easy access to clear, complete and accurate data on development and humanitarian aid around the world.
