51. Success Stories - Building Europe's leading information source for stem cell research

Research on stem cells is providing great hope for alleviating a wide range of previously untreatable diseases and injuries. However, in this rapidly evolving field it can be difficult for patients, teachers and the public at large to find reliable, up-to-date information. [read more]

52. Success Stories - Building new plastics with smart software

Chemists can help create a wide range of plastics from polymers, which are large molecule strings made of repeated sub-units. When chemists come up with a new idea for a plastic, it can sometimes involve a trial-and-error process of mixing elements in the laboratory. To assist with this, the European Union (EU)-funded NANOPOLY research fellows have developed a new software tool to model the polymer molecules on a nano-scale. [read more]

53. Success Stories - Connecting scientists and citizens

Communication between scientists, policymakers and ordinary people is never easy. EU-funded researchers turned this on its head by bringing everyone together around one key issue – sustainable water management. This led to concrete recommendations on water management, as well as a blueprint for increasing interaction on local issues that could be applied to other policy areas. [read more]

54. Success Stories - Designing precision gas flows

A wide range of industrial applications, such as vacuum generators and pressure gauges use gas in tiny amounts. These gas micro-flows behave in a particular manner and need very precise controls of flow. [read more]

56. 10 years ensuring the safety of feed additives - 14 Nov 2014

Today the JRC-managed European Reference Laboratory for Feed Additives (EURL-FA) marks 10 years of scientific and technical support to the EU legislation on feed additives, which ensures they are safe for use and traceable in the feed chain.The JRC-hosted EURL-FA went in operation in November 2004. Its main task is to support the authorisation procedure of feed additives that are used in the European Union. [read more]

57. CORDIS Express: Robots come of age!

This week’s edition of CORDIS Express takes a look at EU-funded robotics research projects, as well as news and events in the field. [read more]

58. Clear communication is key for the success of personalised nutrition

EU-funded researchers have shown that consumers given clear nutritional information are more likely to be open to personalised nutrition. [read more]

59. Research Headlines - New stent to help lung cancer victims breathe easier

Many lung cancer patients have trouble breathing - and if they can't be cured, the struggle for air can become a relentless ordeal. Pulmonary stents - tubes inserted in the lung - can help. EU-funded researchers are taking this technique another step ahead with a new type of stent designed to improve and potentially extend the lives of people going through the final stages of the disease. [read more]

60. Success Stories - 0.05mm: a new accuracy standard for industrial robots

An EU-funded project brought together industry and scientists to develop pioneering ways for industrial robots to be more accurate, significantly reducing the time and cost of machining processes. Software and know-how from the project is already generating new business for Europe's robotic industry. [read more]
