The research team behind the European Union (EU)-funded "QualiTi" project has developed a new testing system for titanium-made airplane parts that improves by 20 percent manufacturing-related defects' detection, even if the probability of such flaws causing any potential incidents is very low.

Europe's railway networks have dedicated teams devoted to checking track safety, inspecting the metal for any cracks or defects that could cause problems. If a track needs fixing, it is often welded on-site. But for all their expertise, the track inspectors have few tools to check whether the resulting welds are strong enough. Now, however, researchers have built a new tool to provide an easy yet reliable ultrasonic test of track welds, adding a much-needed layer of safety to the rail network. [read more]
What will be the biggest challenges facing European agricultural sector in the near future, and what will be the role of research, namely the new EU research programme, Horizon 2020, in facing them? That will be the focus of a conference entitled "Agricultural Research and Food Security – Outlook to Horizon 2020 and beyond", held at the Czech Permanent Representation to the EU (Rue Caroly 15) on 5 June 2013. More information on the programme and the registration form are available on the website of CZELO, the Czech Liaison Office for Research, Development and Innovation. [read more]

The solution is a multi-level one. You can go in very technical solutions like manage the budget, manage the Euro crisis and so on, and also manage the regulations but a good start would be to find new ideas for growth, jobs, maybe create your own job... That is part of the solution I guess. [read more]

The EU funded Sim-e-Child project has developed a grid-enabled platform for large scale simulations in paediatric cardiology. This platform provides a collaborative environment for constructing and validating multi-scale and personalized models of a growing heart and vessels. [read more]
ENRAH-SME was a pioneering European Union (EU)-funded project which laid the crucial groundwork for a major breakthrough in the understanding and potential treatment of a rare childhood neurological disease. [read more]
This new JRC report, entitled 'Science for Standards: a driver for innovation', gives an insight into how standards act as a cornerstone for a wide range of topics in areas as diverse as health and consumer protection, energy and transport, nuclear safety and security, and the environment. It gives a comprehensive overview of how the JRC provides scientific and technical support to EU policies in the field of standardisation. [read more]
Major oil spills from sinking supertankers are thankfully very rare these days. However, smaller oil spills from shipping are unfortunately still common. Most ships have some type of fuel on board and if they are involved in an accident, there is a risk of that fuel leaking into the sea. [read more]
Systems Biology is a stimulating field of application for computer scientists, mathematicians, physicists and a promising resource for biologists. The aim of this workshop is to gather researchers in formal, mathematical, probabilistic and computational methods that are interested in the convergence of Computer Science, Computational Science and Life Sciences.
