Do you remember iCUB, the open-source, EU-born, baby-inspired robot which has been making headlines since 2004 for its capacity to mimic human behaviours? Its prolific inventors have come up with yet another game-changing robot, capable of performing a task as advanced as driving a car. [read more]
During a heart attack, the heart is starved of oxygen and suffers damage that can never be repaired. When the heart is damaged, it becomes weak and cannot pump the blood properly. Over time, this damage can lead to heart failure, a condition that can only be cured with a heart transplant. Over the last decade, stem cells isolated from the heart have demonstrated potential for encouraging the heart to repair itself – so called regenerative medicine. But there has been uncertainty within the research community around the best type and combination of stem cells. [read more]

2015 is the European Year for Development and European Development Days will be its flagship event. Each individual and every policy have a role to play for a more sustainable and peaceful world. In 2015, we want to tell stories from around the world to show that regardless of where we come from or where we want to go, our aspirations remain the same. We strive for a stable and peaceful world, education for our children, jobs for young people and a decent life on a planet, of which we need to take a better care. This year, participants will address issues such as the conditions for creating sustainable growth, the promotion of universal and fundamental rights, or how greater cooperation among all actors can help to eradicate poverty and reduce inequality.

ANTICORRP is a large-scale research project funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme. The central objective of ANTICORRP is to investigate factors that promote or hinder the development of effective anti-corruption policies. This interdisciplinary project includes researchers from anthropology, criminology, law, economic, gender studies, history, law, political science, public policy and public administration. The project is organised into four thematic pillars, which include 11 substantive work packages. During this event, Anticorrp researchers will present the results of our Pan-European Survey on the Quality of Government and Corruption at the national and regional level, conducted in 2013. The survey, which was conducted by researchers from the Quality of Government Institute, is the largest multi-country governance survey aimed at capturing regional variation and its explanations.
