More energy efficient, less polluting, and not too different from current designs: an innovative aircraft concept developed by an EU-funded project could help reduce the environmental impact of aviation. The main aim of the research was to study the practical implementation of distributed propulsion and the implications of using hybrid power architectures, i.e. architectures that combine different power sources such as gas turbines, advanced batteries or fuel cells.

Potential damage from climate hazards to critical infrastructures in the energy, transport, industrial and social sector could triple by the 2020s, multiply six-fold by mid-century, and surpass 10 times today’s total of 3.4 billion €/year by the end of the 21st century. [read more]
On 24 June 2016, the JRC and Central European University (CEU) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that establishes the basis for future collaboration in a series of areas of common interest. [read more]
High unemployment rates, increasingly precarious jobs and industry restructuring are just some of the elements characterising today's labour markets. A network of EU-funded researchers is studying socio-economic and social trends to better understand current developments. [read more]
Here is a fishy tale for foodies and scientists: 'Smoked salmon is a speciality dish. Still it's hard to believe that certain desirable products can be made from leftovers with the help of a special bacteria!'. [read more]
Following a visit to the JRC, Commissioner for Agriculture & Rural Development, Phil Hogan, expressed confidence that increased use of satellite technology can help Member States to significantly increase the efficiency of on-the-spot checks necessary for CAP payments. [read more]
The new opportunities to use the facilities by researchers and the commercial calibration service for the industry are being presented at the annual European PV Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EUPVSEC) 2016. [read more]
From UN peacekeeping operations to managing crowds at the World Cup, the G-NEXT project has demonstrated how the EU's Earth observation programme can assist in emergency and crisis situations around the world. [read more]
A major oceanographic campaign underway in the Black Sea will allow scientists to thoroughly examine the biological and optical features of a marine region of utmost political and economic importance that is highly influenced by the inflow of the Danube river. [read more]
As empirical experiments are almost impossible in astronomy, research in this field relies heavily on observation. Prof. Andrzej Udalski set new frontiers in observational astronomy, in particular in the search for extra-solar planets, using a cutting-edge gravitational microlensing technique which enables the study of celestial objects irrespective of the light they emit.
