Project of the Month: Ramping up EU research excellence to combat COVID-19

As the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 has taken a firm hold in Europe, several ongoing research projects have reoriented their work to focus on the outbreak. This month we’re sharing our ‘Project of the Month’ feature between two such projects, PREPARE and EVAg/EVA-GLOBAL.

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.

Europe’s walnut woods get the productive forest therapy

Walnut trees are part of our landscape, history and a source of richness for many rural areas, but, being slow growing, they are unattractive investments. The EU-funded WOODnat project has worked to counter the threat posed by faster developing, often foreign species to Europe’s forests.
