    • The EU-funded WATERSPOUTT project's partners in Malawi are designing and testing an innovative solar-ceramic water filtration system capable of providing local communities with a reliable source of clean water at the household level.
    • All-too-often it takes global disasters or looming events to bring countries together for a common cause. Climate change is perhaps the biggest 'event' of this kind, an existential threat driving international research cooperation in a new sustainable solution called solar-thermal electricity (STE). But it takes leadership to forge such a grand alliance of scientists, engineers, technicians and companies prepared to back progress in this field. Europe stood up when it was needed.
    • High-level nuclear waste includes long-lived and high-radiotoxic radionuclides. An EU-funded project helps to solve this issue by carrying out the research needed to build a facility that is capable of splitting material with long radioactive half-lives into radionuclide products with 1 000 times shorter half-lives.
    • As climate change worsens, natural disasters like forest fires are becoming more destructive. Firefighters and other emergency service providers often feel outmatched. An EU-funded project is helping these first responders improve their coordination and equipment to keep Europeans safe.
    • Appuntamento a Napoli il 3 e 4 ottobre per l’International Forum on Industrial Biotechnology and Bioeconomy (IFIB) una due giorni dedicata ai temi del biotech industriale e alla bioeconomia che riunisce mondo accademico, R&S e imprese del biotech industriale per portare all’attenzione del mercato nuove tecnologie intese come vettori di crescita economica.  Interverranno speaker e aziende di fama internazionale. Nel contesto di IFIB2019, i partner di Enterprise Europe Network organizzano un evento di incontri one to one per agevolare la collaborazione commerciale e tecnica fra imprese e centri di ricerca italiani ed esteri, che operano nell’ambito dei settori tipici dell’economia circolare: tecnologie ambientali, biotecnologie industriali, nuovi materiali green, energie rinnovabili, etc. L’edizione 2018 ha visto la partecipazione di più di 90 aziende provenienti da 16 paesi EU e extra-EU, e la realizzazione di 200 incontri.
