114.  Transfer of the European Reference Index for the Humanities (ERIH)

The European Science Foundation (ESF) and the Norwegian Social Science Data Services (NSD) are pleased to announce that the transfer of the European Reference Index for the Humanities (ERIH) to NSD has been completed and ERIH PLUS is now accessible at the NSD website. [read more]

115. A multidisciplinary approach to advancing drug development

By drawing together expertise from across a range of fields, the Eindhoven University of Technology's Institute for Complex Molecular Systems is on the verge of a breakthrough that could have significant implications for the pharmaceutical industry. Drug development often relies on organic catalysts - tiny molecules smaller than enzymes that can stimulate reactions - but one longstanding issue is that these molecules often cannot interact nor function in water. Addressing these two issues is important as it could help speed up drug discovery and provide a boost to Europe's important pharmaceutical sector. [read more]

116. CORDIS Express: Space sector supports European independence

European independence and security are not just about energy and defence policies. There is another less obvious sector that is highly involved in keeping us safe - the space sector! The space industry enables the systems and services that keep our security chiefs informed and preserve our autonomy. Telecommunications, navigation and Earth observation also provide us with strategically important knowledge underpinning the EU's external relations in areas such as development-assistance and humanitarian aid. Quality validation date: 2014-07-11 [read more]

120. Research Headlines - Pioneering nanotech approach to help people hear

Around 50 million EU citizens are deaf or hard of hearing. The EU-funded NANOEAR project has built up knowledge and processes that could improve their ability to hear. The results include a novel nanoparticle-based system with the potential to restore hearing, repair tissue and increase performance of cochlear implants. A nano-hearing implant could be available within 10 years. [read more]
