Photo of article Helping developing countries preserve their fish hauls

Without access to modern technology like refrigeration, people in developing countries often have to throw away a significant proportion of the fish they catch. EU-funded researchers have delivered innovative, low-cost solutions to help such communities around the world make their fish stocks go further.

Photo of article Helping Africa 'hack' into Open Science

An EU-funded project has given African researchers the knowledge and tools they need to develop their own science gateways, web portals and accessible data repositories, helping to make their work more visible around the world.

How do vaccination programmes influence child survival in low-income countries? Protection against the targeted illness is not the only aspect to consider, according to an EU-funded project that explored associated outcomes known as 'non-specific effects'. The research focused on public health interventions in Burkina Faso, Ghana and Guinea-Bissau.

Photo of article Researchers cover all bases to stop dengue fever spread

Dengue fever kills around 25 000 people every year and infects 50-100 million, according to the WHO. With incidences rising, there is a new urgency to predict where it will strike (is Europe at risk?) and who is vulnerable. Doctors also need the tools to diagnose the disease quickly, while gaining the upper hand over the mosquitoes that carry the virus would limit its spread in the first place. Between them, three EU-funded projects are approaching Dengue Fever from each of these angles in the race to save lives.

Photo of article Making the most of Africa's biowaste

Cassava peel, sugar cane vinasse and overripe bananas - residues such as these may be known as biowaste, but that doesn't mean they're necessarily wasted. An EU-funded project identified sources and current uses of such materials in five African countries and proposed quick, simple ways of processing them into products with higher added value.

Photo of article Ghana's mushrooming bio-waste initiative

Managing food waste is both a challenge and an opportunity for developing countries. Every month, the St. Baasa factory in west Ghana transforms around 400 tons of cassava into by-products. Previously, the resulting waste, around 120 tons of peel and stalks, was lost. Now the factory is testing a way to create value out of this loss."

Photo of article Vaccination is better than cure

Although it does not sound threatening, diarrhoea is one of the leading causes of infant mortality in the world. The EU-funded STOPENTERICS project is developing innovative vaccines against two of the most common pathogens behind this neglected disease.

Photo of article A platform to help develop Africa's mineral wealth

Africa is a treasure trove for mineral resources, but many go under-exploited. This could change with a pan-African online portal providing geological information on the continent's mineral wealth. Devised by EU-funded researchers, the future portal is now being developed further to help African countries exploit their resources in a sustainable way.
