Much of CORDIS Express this week is dedicated to food-related issues including a call for a change in the European food system, news on diabetes and important food research events. We also cover a scientific gathering in Argentina that aimed to tackle global desertification, the Joint Research Centre's (JRC's) Annual Photovoltaics Status Report, a new computer system that makes for safer driving and a new software that facilitates search and navigation of digital image connection. In Finally and Briefly, find out why sisters rule.
The fight against global desertification has now led the world's leading scientists to Buenos Aires, where they discussed the role of agriculture in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and desertification. Learn more in article one in the News section.
Article number two highlights the increase of photovoltaics production worldwide, as stated by a recently published JRC report; while News article number three revolves around the innovative research of the EU-funded DRIVSCO consortium - a computer system that allows vehicles to learn from driver behaviour.
Under Innovation, an equally cutting-edge EU-funded project is making digital images more easily accessible for users.
The Future of Research section this week covers a new report by the European Science Foundation (ESF) and the European Cooperation in the Field of Scientific and Technical Research (COST). This report calls on the EU to change its approach to food security.
Around Europe, Swedish scientists have made headway in the field of diabetes research.
Finally and Briefly, we contemplate the complex workings of families.
