The essential integration 02/10/2001

How can we increase the amount of renewable energy sold in a liberalised electricity market? If green energy sources are to take off, a major innovation effort will be needed to make them part and parcel of Europe's power grid.

Fusion, now or never? 11/07/2001

Climate warming is giving a real impetus to Europe's commitment to fusion research as a possible zero CO2 energy source for the future. Technical studies on the construction of the ITER experimental reactor - the latest key stage in harnessing this 'energy source of the stars' - are now ready. This puts the ball firmly in the court of policy-makers.

Anticipating - and avoiding - the worst 13-10-00 

At Cadarache, in the south of France, the Phébus reactor is being used to simulate
nuclear accidents. Conducted as part of an ambitious international programme,
these experiments aim to anticipate the effects of such incidents, hopefully
to prevent them from happening in the first place, and to avoid the worst
if they do.

Genome: Accelerating into a new age 13-10-00 

The full sequencing of the human genome is being completed - spectacularly - 15 years ahead of the initial target date. An example of the formidable increase in the speed of modern genome research - due to the partnership between basic science and the computer - and of the fierce competition between public and private research which helped generate the momentum. This is a competition which also lies at the heart of the ethical debate on the 'ownership' of mankind's genetic heritage.
