Europe stands up to lead the solar-thermal electricity way
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.
From brine to blue growth, using marine biotechnology
Powerful compounds, intriguing properties, underused potential... marine resources such as algae are already powering innovation in areas as varied as fuel production, bioremediation and medicine, and the journey of discovery continues. An EU-funded project set out to accelerate the process and help advance Europe's bioeconomy.
Mobile app helps fish farmers to boost their yields
Fish farming has become an important source of high-quality protein. But aquaculture farmers often suffer high losses. A mobile application developed by an EU-funded project offers farmers much-needed, near-real-time support to increase yields - boosting their sustainability and competitiveness.
Reactor design to make nuclear waste less radioactive
High-level nuclear waste includes long-lived and high-radiotoxic radionuclides. An EU-funded project helps to solve this issue by carrying out the research needed to build a facility that is capable of splitting material with long radioactive half-lives into radionuclide products with 1 000 times shorter half-lives.
Traditional pig breeds could boost pork industry's sustainability
An EU-funded project has researched lesser-known and not industrially farmed pig breeds in a bid to help Europe's pork industry diversify and become more sustainable. This could help save endangered breeds, benefit the environment and result in new, high-quality meat options for consumers.
