  Fighting Parkinson's with carbon nanoparticles

Photo of article One of the problems affecting the human nervous system is dopamine deficiency. But testing of dopamine concentration is costly and requires sophisticated equipment not available in a doctor's office. Enter a team of Polish scientists who developed a method enabling the detection of dopamine in solutions both easily and cheaply, even in the presence of interferences. The study is an outcome of the NOBLESSE ('Nanotechnology, biomaterials and alternative energy source for the European Research Area (ERA))' project, which is backed with EUR 3.3 million under the 'Regions of Knowledge' Theme of the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The results are published in the journal Biosensors and Bioelectronics.

  EU and Ukraine set sights on stronger S&T activity

Photo of article Solid research ties are on the cards between the EU and Ukraine thanks to the launching of the information platform S&T (science and technology) Gate UKR.EU which targets better S&T cooperation on a global level, and facilitates networking of research organisations and institutions in the EU and Ukraine, and scientific dialogue between EU Member States and Ukraine. The BILAT-UKR ('Enhancing the bilateral S&T partnership with Ukraine') project, funded under the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) with more than EUR 496 000 in support, developed and financed the S&T Gate UKR.EU platform. BILAT-UKR seeks to be a factor in the fuller integration of Ukraine into the broader European Research Area (ERA).

  SynBIOsis promotes solid European research ties

Photo of article Synergies that fuel the European Research Area (ERA) also promote the scientific development of regions across the EU. Enter the SynBIOsis ('Maximising synergies for central European biotech research infrastructures') project that has brought together two research-driven clusters (RDCs) — Friuli Venezia Giulia (Italy) and South Moravia (Czech Republic) — that are active in diverse research fields including bioinformatics, computational biology and biomedicine. SynBIOsis has received almost EUR 940 000 under the 'Regional' priority of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), as the first-ever project coordinated from the Czech Republic, to establish trans-regional actions resulting in a Joint Action Plan that will respond to the needs and opportunities identified, and will fuel research-driven economic growth in both regions.
