All-too-often it takes global disasters or looming events to bring countries together for a common cause. Climate change is perhaps the biggest 'event' of this kind, an existential threat driving international research cooperation in a new sustainable solution called solar-thermal electricity (STE). But it takes leadership to forge such a grand alliance of scientists, engineers, technicians and companies prepared to back progress in this field. Europe stood up when it was needed.

Your hearing's shot, your memory is playing up, and your eyesight isn't what it used to be... Many of us will develop two or more of these impairments as we age. Their combined effect on older persons' ability to cope is greater than the sum of its parts, say EU-funded researchers who are working on ways to attenuate this joint impact.
