EU-Project, FORTRESS, is developing Foresight Tools for Responding to cascading effects in a crisis

Δευ, 30/06/2014 - 09:11

The main challenge in pan-European disaster management is dealing with inter-organisational and cross-border cascading effects. In order to meet this challenge, the European Commission has funded the FORTRESS project (FOResight Tools for REsponding to caScading effects) with a grant of over 3 Million euros under the 7th Framework Programme (grant agreement no: 607579). FORTRESS is a three-year project that begun in April 2014.

Testing nano materials to build consumer confidence

Δευ, 30/06/2014 - 09:04

Engineered nano materials (ENM) are being used more and more in a variety of commercial products. Because of their unique properties and applications, ENM offer the promise of immense technological and economic benefits to industry and consumers. However, there is also concern that some of these properties may be harmful to humans.

Cutting-edge research on non-food biofuels

Πέμ, 19/06/2014 - 09:57

Biofuels are playing an increasingly important role in our energy mix - between 2008 and 2010, the volume of biofuels consumed in the EU increased by 39 %. However, there is concern over the impact on sustainability and on biodiversity of some biofuels, particularly in relation to changes in indirect land use. Consequently, policymakers are increasingly interested in biofuels from woody plants that can grow on land unsuitable for agriculture.

Nurturing social innovation to reduce food waste

Τετ, 18/06/2014 - 08:29

Innovation for more sustainable food systems is not just about improving food technology and communication activities. Social innovation also has a powerful role to play, according to Sophie Easteal of the FP7-funded FUSIONS (Food Use for Social Innovation by Optimising Waste Prevention Strategies) project who spoke at Green Week in Brussels earlier this month.

Speaking on behalf of WRAP in the UK, one of FUSIONS' 21 project partners, Sophie presented how the project is working towards achieving a more resource efficient Europe by significantly reducing food waste.

EU-project applies green technologies to decontaminate soil

Τρί, 17/06/2014 - 09:33

Soil pollution causes severe environmental and economic impacts, as well as risks for the human health and ecosystems. The closure of mining and industrial facilities in many sites across Europe has revealed large amounts of contaminated land with uncertain future uses. Decontaminating and recovering such soil is a long, complex and expensive process, which places a large burden on enterprises or public administrations.

EU-project develops state of the art of marine ecosystem modelling

Δευ, 16/06/2014 - 10:36

Phytoplankton and zooplankton biomass are expected to decrease by 6 % and 11 % respectively by the end of century due to climate change. This is just one of the conclusions drawn from the work of the EU-funded MEECE ('Marine Ecosystem Evolution in a Changing Environment) project that was recently published in the Global Change Biology Journal.

Improving the health of Europe's fruit and veg industry

Δευ, 16/06/2014 - 10:25

Fruit and vegetables are not just good for your health; they also form the basis of a strong and sustainable European economic sector. Some 10 000 businesses - about 90 % of which are SMEs - are involved in fruit and vegetable processing, employing around 280 000 employees. In order to remain competitive in the face of foreign competition however, investment in new technology capable of improving quality and reducing waste is vital.

Back Pain: New Tools for Prevention

Παρ, 06/06/2014 - 09:44

Back pain is one of the most widespread chronic medical conditions in Europe and until recently disc degeneration was assumed to be the main cause of it. However, scientists have now shown that there is no direct causality between disc alteration and pain.

Novel coronary stent materials reduce heart inflammation risk

Παρ, 06/06/2014 - 09:43

Tiny metal tubes called stents - which keep blood flowing through diseased coronary arteries by slowly releasing medication - have helped to save the lives of millions at risk of heart disease. Once inserted into arteries however, there is a small risk of a life-threatening complication called late stent thrombosis (ST). This occurs when the stent fills with blood clot and disrupts the blood supply.

Climate Change, Meet Cyborg Plants

Τετ, 04/06/2014 - 08:31

We tend to think of plants as being the first victims of pollution and climate change. But thanks to an FP7 research project, crops, forests and even the plants in your back garden could be fighting back.
