The NEWTON consortium has had enough of negative perceptions around science, technology, engineering and maths education. Over more than 3 years, they devised new teaching methodologies based on innovative solutions such as virtual reality and gamification to organise its return to favour.

Geothermal Energy: A new and viable alternative energy source to help achieve Europe’s climate ambitions

In the ongoing quest to combat climate change, new forms of carbon-neutral, environmentally friendly energy sources are being prioritised by the European Commission, especially following the unveiling of its Green Deal initiative. Geothermal energy is one such promising avenue, and in this CORDIS Results Pack we showcase the very latest innovative EU-funded research on both deep and shallow geothermal energy that will allow for a faster, wider and more efficient roll-out of this potentially game-changing alternative energy source.

Satellites: A mini revolution unfolds above us

At the beginning of 2019, according to the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA), nearly 5 000 satellites were orbiting the Earth, an increase of 2.68 % on the previous year. Since the Soviet Union first launched Sputnik into orbit back in 1957, around 8 378 satellites have been sent up into outer space. Seven additional satellites are also orbiting planets other than Earth. However, not all of these nearly 5 000 satellites are still active – only around 2 000 are still functional, meaning that less than 40 % of the satellites currently in orbit are fully operational.

Health monitoring technology ensures wind-generated electricity makes it back to shore

Despite tremendous advances in the size and power of wind turbines, all the electricity generated is useless if it cannot make it back to shore and into the grid. A pioneering 24/7 remote health monitoring service plans to make sure it does.
