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.
Satellite images of ancient irrigation channels in Spain’s Sierra Nevada National Park could help mitigate the impact of climate change in the region.
Consumers want high-quality, organic berry products available in larger quantities. An international team of researchers has set out to meet their demands.
A team of researchers have proposed a new test that rapidly examines dogs for exposure to a parasite transmitted by sand flies. The test could be used in monitoring the effectiveness of sand fly control efforts.
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.
An agricultural robot harvesting sweet peppers will help automate labour in greenhouses.
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.
An ocean energy technology project that will harness tidal power has successfully produced electricity during towing tests.
A team of researchers have shown that micro-size granular particles in plant cells behave like liquids when they respond to gravity. Their findings could pave the way for new engineering design and technological applications that mimic biological systems.
Chemical-free and remote sensing technologies can help prevent bee colony losses. Here’s how.
Shortly before his death, Stephen Hawking left us his final legacy – a theory developed with physicist Thomas Hertog that tackles the problem of multiple, infinite universes.
First direct dating of an early human tooth confirms the antiquity of Homo antecessor, western Europe’s oldest known human fossil species.
Researchers are examining the impact of climate change on aquaculture. This will help fish farmers decide what to grow and where.
The potential benefits of less cultivated varieties of cereals are garnering more interest in a drive towards healthy nutrition.
Research underlines potential of working with educators and students to increase public understanding of solutions to a major global environmental problem: marine litter.
Researchers are assessing a new technology that harnesses the power of the ocean to generate clean and inexpensive electricity.
Scientists have discovered hundreds of genes involved in the development of diabetes and other metabolic diseases.
New research shows that a high-fat Mediterranean diet with nuts and extra virgin olive oil could modify the function of specific cell genes. This should help in the fight against several conditions, especially cardiovascular disease.
Tired, a few aches and pains, more interested in sitting comfortably by the fire than a wet walk in the woods? Dog or owner, staying mentally active at whatever age creates positive emotions and can slow down mental deterioration.
With the prevalence of allergy and asthma on the rise around the world, the race is on to explain this increase and stem the tide. A recent study finds a clue in an unlikely source… intestinal worms.
