Microorganisms and parasites help identify conservation status of endangered primates

Primates support tropical biodiversity by promoting forest regeneration, but many species are threatened by the loss of their preferred habitat - pristine forests. An EU study has investigated the impact of habitat degradation and human disturbance on primate gut composition.

From people to infrastructure: Creation of 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.

How tech is taking on terrorism

In less than 2 years the world will be commemorating the 20th anniversary of the cataclysmic events that brought what many historians are now referring to as the ‘Long Nineties’ (1989-2001) to a screeching end. The 9/11 attacks radically shifted the course of world political history, spearheaded by the launch of the US-led ‘War on Terror’. Indeed, the felling of the twin towers of the World Trade Center resulted in some of the most horrific, tragic and yet instantly recognisable images that characterise the dawn of the 21st century.
