  • EU project 'drives' innovation in crisis management

    The EU, like every territory in the world, is exposed to an array of potential crises and disasters. A crisis can be caused by anything from climate change and failures in infrastructure to terrorist and cyber attacks. In recent years, different coordination mechanisms, such as the EU emergency and crisis coordination arrangements (EU-CCA), have been set up to enhance the EU's crisis management capacity.

  • Improving EU-India science, technology and innovation cooperation

    Researchers and innovators from Europe and India have teamed up to enhance cooperation and tackle innovation challenges through two FP7-funded projects, INNO INDIGO and INDIGO POLICY. The projects, which both began in November 2013, both aim to develop transnational and bilateral EU-India science, technology and innovation (STI) cooperation. They will build on the work of previous project called NEW INDIGO, which successfully implemented schemes for EU-India transnational calls for proposals (New INDIGO Partnership Programme) and offered a platform for stakeholders to discuss research policies.

  • New Commissioner launches agreement to boost funding opportunities for SMEs

    The new Commissioner for Industry and Entrepreneurship, Ferdinando Nelli Feroci, recently oversaw the signing of an agreement aimed to boost funding opportunities for SMEs. This was one of Nelli Feroci's first tasks as new temporary Commissioner and it may be one of relatively few - his mandate is expected to last only until the end of October, when a new Commission is to be set up. Italy needs an interim Commissioner because the previous Italian Commissioner, Antonio Tajani, stepped down following his election to the European Parliament.

  • Turning bio-waste into hydrogen

    Whilst hydrogen cars look set to be the next big thing in an increasingly carbon footprint-aware society, sustainable methods to produce hydrogen are still in their early stages. The HYTIME project is working on a novel production process that will see green hydrogen being produced from grass, straw and food industry residues. When sustainability and bioeconomy are being discussed, the words 'hydrogen' and 'biomass' are usually not too far away - although rarely mentioned in the same sentence.

  • Understanding the economics of human trafficking

    Although Europe is one of the strictest regions in the world when it comes to guaranteeing the respect of human rights, the number of people trafficked to or within the EU still amounts to several hundred thousands a year according to the European Commission. The most common forms of such trafficking include sexual and economic exploitation, the removal of organs and forced illegal activities such as petty theft. Last year, a Eurostat report shed some light on the state of human trafficking in Europe, and stressed that 'significant challenges remain in tackling the different aspects of trafficking in human beings'.
