This is what I'm very passionate about: I think citizen science would be the force for change in science in the next ten years. Right now there's only so much that a small number of highly trained people can do and we're doing all the things that they can do but there's way more that they can leverage when the public can be involved in their efforts and when the role of the scientist switches from being a person who does all the work himself by hand to someone who organizes the work that other people can do, it just expands the range of what is possible and I think if you are able to take advantage of a big scale, it would be a huge benefit because there is more of a communal spirit, there's more of a sense of, you know, let's all solve this problem together, especially in smaller countries you can sort of have a sense of well, this is a problem unique to our area, let's all fix this together and as citizen scientists you can contribute to that very easily and make a big difference.

A newly launched EU project seeks to combat the negative health consequences of the increasing populations of ticks and bedbugs in Europe. It hopes to achieve this through the development of protective, biodegradable textile materials. Population levels of ticks and particularly bedbugs have been steadily on the rise in Europe over the past decade - in part due to climate change - as well as a result of increased global migration, changes in insecticide use patterns and reduced insecticide susceptibility of the bedbugs. Quality validation date: 2013-12-10 [read more]

Most innovation comes from science of course, and it's not always directly... you can't always directly link it but in a very rich society where we live, we can afford to spend time and money on new ideas that may take ten years before they eventually materialize or create a market. We can afford that and we need to do that. [read more]

An innovative new way of providing personal behavioural guidance to children and young adults could play a crucial role in tackling the ongoing obesity epidemic. The EU-funded SPLENDID project, which is being coordinated by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece, will use high-tech sensors to record eating habits and physical activity across the course of a day, and provide valuable - and accurate - information to users and health-professionals. The emergence of obesity is a major health concern, causing 2. [read more]
