Scientists have successfully measured zinc samples under deep-sea conditions. Their method could support sustainable extraction of raw seabed materials.
An EU project will deploy 10 new light electric vehicles in smart city Trikala to show citizens the benefits of driving three- and four-wheel electric vehicles in urban areas.
New research reveals that England, Scotland and Wales were created by the merger of three continental land masses, and not two.
Researchers have outlined a plan to detect and report changes in global biodiversity. The monitoring of species traits will improve natural resource management.
Researchers developed a sustainable wastewater treatment system made from agricultural and industrial wastes.
Scientists have found that man-made structures in the North Sea could play a crucial role in holding coral populations together and increasing their resilience.
An EU initiative will facilitate the production, storage and supply of hydrogen for a wide range of end users. It will help integrate green power into the energy system in a flexible way.
Researchers have developed a unique wind turbine that can be assembled onshore and then towed to its offshore location.
Chicken feathers and solid remains of grapes are being used to develop eco-friendly materials, thanks to two EU-backed initiatives.
What do microplastic filters, fertilisers and fish feed have in common? They can all be produced using jellyfish! At least, that’s what one research team has set out to prove as they look into reducing the plastic waste in our oceans.
Researchers are developing an autonomous system to monitor coastal and deep waters for fish stock. Their technology could enhance marine environment protection.
A new interactive online platform helps to increase awareness of innovations in the bioeconomy sector.
In its first year of testing, the world’s most powerful floating tidal turbine has generated 3 GWh of electricity.
An EU initiative incorporates climate science, hydrology and economics data to help decision-makers boost resilience and adaptation capacity.
Consumers want high-quality, organic berry products available in larger quantities. An international team of researchers has set out to meet their demands.
A novel microbial detection module will help water distribution networks speed up the process of contamination measuring. This will lead to significant savings with real-time critical data.
An EU initiative is ready to test the first of its two innovative turbine devices. This brings the project one step closer to commercialising the hydrokinetic turbines that will offer a reliable solution for generating zero-carbon energy from rivers and estuaries.
Novel system achieves significant reductions in energy consumed for heating and cooling electric car interiors.
An EU initiative will deploy hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles in three European capitals as taxis, private-hire and police cars. The move will accelerate their commercialisation and help realise emissions-free transport.
Scientists are building the planet’s biggest hydrogen power plant in an effort to run the Austrian steel industry entirely on clean energy.
Scientists have made significant progress in the design of vital components used in hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. Improved features will lower production costs and help create a clean automotive future.
A new tool aids efforts to meet the EU’s biodiversity targets. The recently launched information platform allows scientists to share data about freshwater, coastal and marine ecosystems.
Researchers have found a novel way to diagnose and manage patients with fever. How? Through new biomarkers that can tell the difference between bacterial and viral infection.
Coordinated development of electricity infrastructure connecting offshore wind farms to land will bring financial and environmental benefits.
