42. Success Stories - Innovative localisation system to save lives at sea

On a sinking ship, crews need to evacuate passengers quickly - but they may have to find them first. An innovative system based on EU-funded research may soon make this task a great deal easier. On vessels fitted with this system, teams will be able to locate passengers instantly, on board and in the water. [read more]

43. Uberisation of Science

With an increased reliance on geographically-distributed teams, tomorrow's researchers are going to be able to reach unprecedented scales of collaborations, not just limited to cooperation between well-funded labs. Researchers from wider afield, including from territories with lowe level of research funding, will finally be able to more systematically contribute to the great scientific endeavour of the future. This issue is not limited to the mere technicalities of working across self-organised, distributed teams. It also looks at how, for such scenario to take place, it is essential; that we change our outlook on what we mean by collaborating. [read more]

44. When privacy-bound research pays for open science

Thanks to the growing uberisation of science, opportunities to participate in world class research could soon no longer be limited to researchers in well-funded labs. According to an opinion piece by Barend Mons, professor at the Leiden University Medical Centre, The Netherlands, technology has now made it possible to distribute part of the interpretation of scientific results across a geographically widespread work force, to include scientists from developing countries. In the first of a two-part contribution, he also envisions that a new business model allocating free access to those who share, and charging a premium to those who don’t, could soon disrupt research and innovation and further open science. The post When privacy-bound research pays for open science appeared first in Euroscientist magazine. [read more]
