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.

Photo of article Top results from quasi-experimental 'participatory action research'

Long-term vision, high-level endorsement and participation, and tailored forms of international scientific collaboration are key to overcoming widespread fragmentation and improving service quality 'and' health outcomes in Latin America. This is the overriding conclusion of an international research team backed by the European Union.

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.

An EU-funded project has shown that by setting up onsite facilities, fruit and vegetable processors can cost-effectively transform their by-products into sustainable added-value compounds. This can boost rural employment and provide a new source of ingredients for the chemicals, materials, food and pharmaceutical industries.

Photo of article Climate change: why biodiversity matters

EU-funded ROBIN has advanced scientific understanding of the roles tropical forests and their rich, biodiverse ecosystems play in mitigating climate change and providing benefits or 'services' to local communities.

Photo of article Local communities and scientists join forces for conservation

Such is the wealth of biodiversity in Latin America that several countries sport the label 'megadiverse'. But biological hotspots are also often home to precious cultural diversity. EU and Latin American researchers studied community-based initiatives to protect both - together known as 'biocultural diversity'. The findings fed into guides to local conservation.
