European Commission Vice-President Neelie Kroes has awarded prizes to eHealth SMEs from Finland, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland and United Kingdom as part of eHealth Week 2013 in Dublin, Ireland. [read more]
Cancer research has taken a huge leap forward with scientists now able to identify more than 80 genetic markers found to increase the risk of breast, ovarian and prostate cancer. The COGS international research initiative is believed to be the largest of its kind. Although the results have been widely reported, the cross-border efforts behind this monumental initiative have not. Quality validation date: 2013-05-14 [read more]
The ability to measure concentrations of oxygen inside living human cells is a key requirement to help advance our understanding and treatment of a range of serious medical conditions. These include ischaemic stroke (where the stroke is caused by a blockage in the artery, preventing sufficient oxygen from reaching the brain), neurodegenerative disorders, and cancer. [read more]

To make modern aircraft ever lighter, faster and more fuel efficient, manufacturers are continually introducing new advanced materials, composites and super lightweight structures. Before using them on a plane, the integrity and performance of these materials have to be tested in a non-destructive way, to see how they would perform in the real-life pressure and temperature conditions of flight. Among the techniques aero-space testing facilities currently rely on are two important tests: one using laser beams and one using thermal imaging to see inside the material under stress and detect problems in structures caused by hidden defects.

UncertWeb is a recently concluded FP7 research project. It looked into the way we treat and manage uncertainty when we use science to understand, predict and control the world around us. Often, it is very important to be able to quantify our uncertainties about what has happened and what will happen in the future. UncertWeb steps in by providing a range of tools to help quantify the initial uncertainties, work out their effects on the outcomes of our models of the world around us, and visualise the results in an intuitive way. UncertWeb researchers have applied UncertWeb's tools and the associated web-based systems in a number of areas looking at air quality forecasts, how food production might change with our changing climate, how climate and human pressures affect biodiversity and how people experience their environment.
