In 2014, more than 1.9 billion adults were overweight; of these, over 600 million were obese (source: World Health Organisation). This workshop will give an overview of the obesity research that the EU is currently funding. Obesity prevention is a complex issue, and can be tackled from different angles, such as understanding the dietary needs of specific target groups, promoting healthy diets or creating new foods. The seven EU projects presented at this workshop (EarlyNutrition, SATIN, I.Family, PREDIMED Plus, PREVIEW, Food4Me, NUDGE-IT) are investigating different approaches to combating the obesity epidemic. This conference is one of the EU Research and Innovation events addressing global food security and nutrition at Expo Milano 2015 [read more]

Food security is at the centre of many debates and research projects, but access to food and the consumption of safe and nutritious food are important aspects of this challenge. The ‘grand debate’ will highlight the role that both JPIs and the EU countries taking part in them could play to tackle this societal challenge. This conference is one of the EU Research and Innovation events addressing global food security and nutrition at Expo Milano 2015. [read more]

This edition of CORDIS Express looks at some of the EU-funded projects exploring new therapies, tests and treatments to tackle prostate cancer. [read more]
Mass production and packaging in factories is already highly automated these days, but the same cannot be said for logistics. Movements of raw materials and finished products still depend heavily on manual labour. However, EU-funded research on Automatic Guided Vehicles means this is about to change over the next decade – and could create thousands of new jobs. [read more]
Most wind energy comes from turbines 150 metres above ground level. Winds at this altitude are however weak and intermittent, with most wind farms operating at only 25 - 30% of their capacity. EU-funded researchers have developed a prototype wind energy system that works at much higher altitudes, where winds are stronger and more constant, increasing electricity production dramatically. A commercialised product is in the pipeline. [read more]
HEROIC researchers have developed a roadmap towards the sustainable and safe use of chemicals, combining environmental and human risk assessments. [read more]
On Sunday 19 April 2015, at the ERC workshop Funding Opportunities in Europe for Creative Minds From Anywhere in the World taking place at the AACR, three of them will be sharing their experience with ERC funding. Discover their research projects, three different approaches that can make the difference in cancer research, three new ways to advance the scientific knowledge on cancer origin and development.
