  National folic acid recommendations confuse European consumers

Photo of article Wide variations across Europe with regard to recommendations for intake of folic acid and other micronutrients are confusing consumers, according to a Preliminary Survey presented recently at the European Congress of Nutrition in Paris. The survey was undertaken by researchers from Wageningen University on behalf of the EURRECA Network of Excellence. ‘Individual countries convene expert panels and review their national guidance on recommendations for micronutrients at different times, which means they are often not working with the same or most up-to-date scientific information. This results in national recommendations being out of ‘sync’ with each other’, says EURRECA partner, Professor Lisette de Groot, from the University of Wageningen (the Netherlands) and one of the authors of the report.

  EU funds research on work-week, home-life dynamics

Photo of article In today's globalised market, the codes and rules governing the European workplace have been re-evaluated and fine-tuned. Companies have been compelled to rethink their strategies for competing with emerging economies; this affects the way a workforce is managed. One of the strategies that European firms, both large and small, have identified while attempting to adjust to the new pressures of the market, is to extend working times or devise creative work schedules. Though this may provide a slight advantage in boosting turnover, what are the implications for workers and their families, who are obliged to adjust their daily routines so as to adapt to these changes? EUCOWE, an EU-financed project, studied working times in Europe, and examined their social effects on the workforce.
