41. Research Headlines - Breathe easier - smart sensors for healthier indoor air

Stuffy office environments and poor air quality in schools, hospitals and factories could soon be a distant memory thanks to low-cost smart sensor and ventilation-control technology capable of intelligently detecting and removing hazardous airborne substances. The technology was developed through EU-funded research. [read more]

42. Research Headlines - Creating a shared traffic safety culture

To stay safe on the roads, we need good infrastructure, alert road-users and effective technology. But what about a general safety culture? A team of researchers from countries with very different approaches to road-use is developing a cultural approach to road safety with the ultimate objective of cutting traffic accident numbers.

43. Research Headlines - Energy-efficient fuel cell technology

Fuel cell systems are an efficient way of converting chemical energy into electricity so as to reduce emissions and protect the environment. EU-funded research has advanced existing components and designs to develop an optimised version - boosting product lifetime and efficiency, and potential commercial uptake of a sustainable energy solution.

44. Research Headlines - Fighting hunger by cutting food waste

Worldwide, we waste around 1.3 billion tonnes of food a year, while nearly a billion people go hungry. An EU-funded project has created an online community to tackle the problem by sharing knowledge and redistributing food. [read more]

45. Research Headlines - Learning to spot a structural flaw early

If flaws in infrastructure - a ship or a bridge for example - are spotted early, the damage can be repaired before anyone gets hurt, and before the costs mount. It's a nice theory, but there are currently many uncertainties in ensuring structural safety, as well as a lack of specialists. An EU-funded project is addressing both problems. [read more]

46. Research Headlines - Networking for EU wine production

The popping of corks and glugging of a good wine may not be at threat just yet, but if the diseases threatening Europe's vineyards have their way, they could be. EU-funded researchers therefore have very good reason to network around wine - they are building a knowledge bank to help vineyard owners protect their crops and keep the wine flowing. [read more]

47. Research Headlines - Ocean-monitoring sensor system makes waves

An EU-funded project has developed and deployed cost-effective marine sensors to monitor and provide a more complete picture of the health of our planet's oceans. Some of the sensors are already on the market and patents are pending. [read more]

48. Research Headlines - Perseverance pays off for twin-ship lift, load and lever system

An EU-funded solution for an innovative twin-ship lift, load and lever system has sparked considerable interest from oil platform operators and the oil and gas industry in general. With the design now fully validated, and with international backers on board, construction of the system begins in earnest. [read more]

49. Research Headlines - Polish institute beefs up research expertise

A Polish institute strengthened its research capabilities via an EU-funded project. A package of measures has helped the Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research (IARFR) extend its expertise in three key areas - food, biodiversity and health. [read more]
