2014, április 10 - 01:00
High arsenic (As) levels in drinking water supplies cause several health issues such as cancers as well as cardiovascular/neurological implications. An EU directive has therefore determined that the new Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) is 10 µgAs/L.

2014, április 10 - 01:00
Essential tremor (ET) is a neurological disease that typically causes an involuntary tremor in the hands and arms. Current treatments are not effective in severe cases and affects the quality of life of approximately 2 million Europeans.

2014, április 10 - 01:00
Water-borne contaminations often lead to infectious diseases and underscore the importance of clean water. EU-funded scientists will introduce an online water monitoring system to expedite the process of microbial screening and improve the overall state of water supplies.
2014-04-10 - New dawn for airport security

An advanced airport security system that combines input from different sensors and technologies promises to revolutionise security for airports, aeroplanes and people.
2014-04-10 - Possible eco-impacts of CO2 leakage
2014, április 10 - 01:00
Although scientists don't expect significant leakage of carbon dioxide (CO2) from large-scale carbon capture and storage projects, they have assessed the risks just in case. Using field experiments,observations of natural CO2 emissions and modelling, they have provided data to inform assessments of the possible impact of CO2 leakage on onshore and offshore ecosystems.
2014-04-10 - Early cancer detection
2014, április 10 - 01:00
Colorectal cancer and lung cancer cause millions of deaths each year. The tumour-suppressor gene BARD1 is aberrantly expressed in several types of cancer and could be a diagnostic target for early cancer diagnosis in blood samples.
2014-04-10 - Smoothly operating EU electricity grids
2014, április 10 - 01:00
Cross-border exchanges and a growing contribution of intermittent renewable energy sources (RESs) are threatening the secure operation of the EU's electricity system. Scientists are creating a management toolbox to help to address the problem.

2014, április 16 - 01:00
Have you ever wished you had a virtual time machine that could show you how your street looked last century? Or have you wanted to see how your new furniture might look, before you’ve even bought it? Thanks to VENTURI, an EU research project, you can now do just that.
2014-04-10 - The future of offshore platforms
2014, április 10 - 01:00
European seas will be subject to major development in the near future as offshore wind farms are built and wave-power and marine aquaculture are exploited. Marine infrastructure will take the form of multi-use platforms (MUPs) in order to support these new activities and minimise related cost and environmental impact.
