A protein associated with Alzheimer’s Disease has also been linked to cognitive ability
If the knowledge that our brains can produce new cells in adulthood is ever going to help in the fight against neurodegenerative disease, we need to understand the underlying mechanisms more effectively. Towards this end, a new study drawing on EU-funded research, sheds further light on the role the protein APP plays in neuroplasticity.
Warning that a three degree rise in temperature will ‘cancel out’ European emission reduction efforts
As a debilitating heatwave, nicknamed ‘Lucifer’ by the press, currently engulfs southern Europe, a new study part-supported by two EU-funded projects has warned that a rise in global temperatures of three degrees would reverse Europe’s dedicated efforts to reduce ozone pollution.
"The new generation of aeroplanes" task force to develop priorities for research projects
On an initiative of Mrs. Cresson, Commissioner for research and development, Mr. Bangemann, Commissioner for industry, telecommunications and information technologies, and Mr. Kinnock, Commissioner for transport, the European Commission has set up six task forces to develop in...
Trending Science: Will we all be passengers or are we putting the cart before the horse?
Iggy Pop’s song, ‘I am a passenger’ has already been used for car adverts and yet can seem out of tune when cars are sold as enablers of freedom, won through agency and control. Until now that is. With the coming era of autonomous vehicles, it will surely be the go-to song, aptly representing a new kind of freedom on the roads.
A wheeled robot to monitor grape growth
Just like great wine needs time, great grapes require continuous attention and reliable assessment tools. Noting the absence of a convincing alternative to manual sampling and analysis, an EU-funded consortium has developed VineRobot, an ‘Unmanned ground vehicle’ (UGV) equipped with non-invasive sensor technology.

Magnetic properties of new nanoporous material for data storage, attracts attention
With around 90% of the worlds data generated in the last two years alone, there is a pressing need for more efficient data storage and transfer. The EU-funded SPIN-PORICS nanocomposite prototype may have a solution.
Quantum physicists bring Schrödinger’s cat to life (and death)
A real cat can’t be both alive and dead at the same time, Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger said. But quantum physics rewrites the rules, a fact now demonstrated by a team of researchers funded by the EU.
New study offers answers to improve elderly transport mobility
A new study led by the University of Plymouth and funded through the EU-funded TRACY project has advised governments to do more to develop transport policies that allow those over the age of 65 to remain mobile and active.
