EU-funded project INTERACT has built a network of Arctic research stations, allowing them to coordinate and share resources more efficiently. The network aims to boost the scope and quantity of research on the Arctic, which serves as a bellwether of global changes to climate, biodiversity and land use.

The faster schizophrenia patients receive effective treatment, the better their prognosis. EU-funded researchers are establishing a profile of individuals unlikely to respond to the drugs used in first-line treatment, for whom the last-resort antipsychotic clozapine should be considered sooner. They are also improving the safety of this drug.

Who's at risk of osteoporosis? The older you grow, the more likely you are to have it, particularly if you are a woman. Whether you actually develop this debilitating condition depends on a combination of genes and lifestyle factors. EU-funded researchers have identified a number of genetic variants that play a role.

Scientists don't know all of the reasons why some people are more susceptible to lung disease than others - something that the EU-funded ALEC project is seeking to find out. The results could be an important step towards better prevention and treatments for patients.

An EU-funded project has extracted enzymes found among Iceland's volcanoes that could lead to more efficient and greener industrial processes-from making food to biofuels. A number of these enzymes have already been patented, ushering in a new generation of natural catalysts for chemical processes and helping industry become more competitive.
