Oceans under threat: Protecting and preserving our maritime environments

RESULTS IN BRIEF

Cooling solution reduces thermal constraints, weight and size of commercial plane components

Cooling solution reduces thermal constraints, weight and size of commercial plane components

The amount of waste heat generated by aerospace applications’ electronic components is increasing because of higher electrical power demands. Consequently, conventional cooling methods aren’t able to keep electronic components below their maximum temperature limits.

Disaster-Resilient Societies

Mention ‘disaster’ in relation to society and the mind goes immediately to changing-climate–related events such as floods. However, there are many other types of catastrophe, including earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, space weather events, industrial disasters, crime and terrorism threats. The EU is working to reduce the loss of human life and material damage from all these sources of human misery.

Breast cancer: EU funding for new tools and solutions

Breast cancer claims the lives of more European women than any other cancer: one in eight women in the EU will develop breast cancer before the age of 85. Data from the European Cancer Information System (ECIS) indicate more than 400 000 new cases were diagnosed in 2018. By improving the quality of breast cancer services in Europe, the European Commission Initiative on Breast Cancer (ECIBC) aims to help reduce the burden of cancer and decrease the avoidable differences in breast cancer incidence, prevalence, mortality and survival.

Oceans under threat: Protecting and preserving our maritime environments

From climate change and plastics pollution, to overfishing and the destruction of coral reefs, the world’s oceans are reeling from human activities that together are building up into a terrifying environmental disaster. The future of human civilisation is dependent on healthy oceans (especially as they cover 71 % of the Earth’s surface) and action needs to be taken now to safeguard their complex biodiversity for future generations.
