  • Strategy to scale-up fish industry's competitiveness

    12/07/2017
    EU-funded project unpicks why Europe's fish industry is suffering in the face of international competition and will provide the industry with new software and studies to help improve business strategies.

  • An integrated observing system for the Atlantic Ocean

    12/07/2017
    Buoys, floats, moorings and research vessels, to name just a few examples - data about the state of the Atlantic is collected by a number of means. And by a profusion of actors, who could jointly produce even better results if they applied a common strategy. EU-funded researchers are driving the development of an integrated system.

  • Valuable metals not stuck in the mud

    08/06/2017
    Bauxite residue - the by-product from the extraction of aluminium from bauxite ore - has the consistency of thick, red mud. Disposing of this waste poses a serious problem for industry, as does the risk of spills. But red mud can also be a source of critical metals. The REDMUD project intends to turn residues into low-carbon building materials - and to train researchers along the way.

  • 'Electric' bacteria can purify sewage water - fast

    07/06/2017
    Harnessing bacteria that produce electricity and break down organic waste, a European research project is developing a new, environmentally friendly way to purify sewage water in small communities.

  • Turning rubbish into added-value resources

    07/06/2017
    The NEW-MINE project will identify and develop enhanced landfill-mining technology to transform landfill waste into high-added-value products, such as fuel and building materials.

  • Cargo vessels: a cleaner alternative to lorries

    31/05/2017
    Cargo vessels are considered a relatively green mode of transport. Compared to lorries, they produce fewer emissions. But road transport is modernising fast and vessels have to keep up to remain competitive.

  • ATLAS maps the deep blue Atlantic

    31/05/2017
    We know more about the dark side of the moon and the surface of Mars than we do about our deep ocean environments. EU-funded research is shedding more light on the darkest depths of the North Atlantic maritime region. A better understanding of deep-sea habitats will inform the sustainable management of this vital resource.

  • All aboard for advanced railway signalling and automation systems

    30/05/2017
    Control, communication, cyber security - the development of a flexible, real-time, intelligent rail traffic management and decision support system will involve innovation in these and many other areas. An EU-funded project dedicated to signalling and automation systems is helping to advance the necessary R&D.

  • In-depth technology for deep-sea discovery

    29/05/2017
    It is often said that we know more about the surface of the moon than the ocean floor. The EU-funded STRONGMAR project will address marine knowledge gaps by fostering knowledge transfer and exchanges between leading European marine science research institutes. The project seeks to support innovative technological solutions that will advance deep-sea research at INESC TEC in Porto, Portugal.

  • Understanding a changing Europe through big data

    24/05/2017
    The EU-funded LONGPOP project will train young researchers in the skills needed to fully exploit big data. With a focus on social change, the researchers will be able to apply the knowledge and techniques learnt to helping welfare systems prepare for the years ahead.
