 JRC scientists contributed to the validation of methods to quantify a promising marker for the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. This work is pivotal for the preparation of soon te be released certified reference materials based on cerebrospinal fluid proteins (CSF), enabling standardisation of tests for Alzheimer diagnosis.

In a new publication in Science of The Total Environment, JRC and leading global scientists in the field of water management identify 7 essential elements that should be considered in a water stress indicator. Although the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicator 6.4.2 on water stress considers these 7 elements, the authors point out that there is need for improvement, and give clear recommendations to address this need.
