  • Using ICT to promote - and protect - Europe's landscapes

    How can both policy makers and citizens make better use of ICT in order to protect Europe's landscapes? This is the question posed by E-CLIC, an innovative EU-funded project designed to encourage greater citizen involvement in the protection of nature. Through social media platforms and competitions, the project aims to promote learning, stimulate discussion and, ultimately, get people engaged in the formulation and implementation of landscape policy. A specific aim of the project has been to highlight the importance of the European Landscape Convention (ELC), the first international treaty to be exclusively devoted to all aspects of European landscape.

  • Volcanoes: a friendly force?

    Some of the most famous and devastating natural disasters in history relate to volcano eruptions. It is estimated that more than 260 000 people have died in the past 300 years from eruptions and their aftermath. But volcanoes should not be judged as purely destructive forces - they may also have played a vital part in ensuring life could evolve on Earth and they may now be helping to slow down the warming of the atmosphere.

  • CORDIS Express: Natural disasters - softening the impact with EU projects

    According to a report from the European Environment Agency, between 1998 and 2009, disasters caused nearly 100 000 fatalities, affected more than 11 million people and led to economic losses of about EUR 150 billion. Extreme temperature events caused the highest number of human fatalities. In total, more than 70 000 excess deaths were reported in Europe during the hot summer of 2003.

  • Ground-breaking insights into quantum chaos in ultracold gas

    A specialised University of Innsbruck laboratory has successfully identified chaotic behaviour in atoms by using ultracold gas. This breakthrough could enable physicists to better understand the world of quantum mechanics. In a relatively short space of time, the study of ultracold gas has become one of the most interesting and potentially significant fields of atomic and molecular physics.

  • EU backs pioneering research on laser crystals

    The European Union has contributed some EUR 3. 1 million to a pioneering project which aims to substantially improve the thermo-optical effects occurring in a Ti:Sapphire laser crystal pumped at high powers. The TISA TD ('Ultrafast High-Average Power Ti:Sapphire Thin-Disk Oscillators and Amplifiers') project was officially launched on 1 December 2013 and is led by the laser development and laser optics department at Stuttgart University (USTUTT) in Germany.
