  • 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.

  • Improving decision making in complex crises situations

    Today more people than ever are threatened by disasters, be they natural or man-made. Furthermore, chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear contamination risks can occur as a consequence of such events. Regions affected are wider and wider and reconstruction and recovery operations are longer-lasting, costly and complex, especially when decontamination is necessary.

  • CORDIS Express: safe and secure supply of food

    Where does our food comes from? How it is treated along the journey to our table? How does it affect us once we've eaten it? From the health impacts of obesity to hidden ingredients in our daily meals, questions about food concern us all. Food safety, animal welfare, plant health, labelling and traceability: all come under the spotlight through EU funded FP7 research. Food safety has come to the fore as an issue over the last few years as scares have shown that we can't necessarily trust ingredient labels.

  • Food intake may affect anger in relationships

    We know that the food we eat affects our health and energy levels, but could it also affect our relationships? A new study published this week suggests that low levels of glucose in the blood may increase anger and aggression between spouses. Teams at Ohio State University, Columbus, the University of Kentucky and the University of North Carolina recruited 107 married couples and equipped them with blood glucose meters, voodoo dolls, and 51 pins to record their glucose and anger levels over time. Science magazine reports that for 21 days, the couples used the meters to measure their glucose levels each morning before breakfast and each evening before bed.

  • EU project explores the potential of clusters for cross-sector innovation

    Clusters are regional hubs of competences in a given industry or technology branch, representing a critical mass of actors from R&D, industry and other institutional contexts. They are seen as an essential trigger in innovation policy to make European SMEs more competitive. Maintaining and improving the competitiveness of clusters in Europe is the core aim of CLUSTRAT, an EU-backed project.
