Are sleepless nights really harmful for health?

Feeling ragged after a late night is normal, but researchers have discovered that for male flies, it depends if you are with a girlfriend or a male opponent.

Harnessing solar power: The future shines bright

Solar power is a clean, abundant and increasingly competitive source of renewable energy. By helping the EU achieve its goal of transitioning from imported fossil fuels and move towards sustainable cleaner energy, solar power can also drive technological innovation and generate employment. Furthermore, solar power is already making a key contribution to the European energy mix and, based on current market trends, has the potential to meet 20 % of the EU electricity demand in 2040.

How the digital revolution is transforming EU-funded brain research

As the world continues to be remodelled by the digital revolution, we are seeing digital technologies embed themselves firmly into all aspects of our lives, including into the mainstream of neurosciences research to help unravel the complexity of brain disorders. In this cross-cutting CORDIS Results Pack, we highlight innovative projects from across the full spectrum of EU-funded research programmes that are helping science make sense of arguably the most complex and mysterious machine in existence – the human brain.

Obesity: EU research battles the bulge

Obesity has become one of the major public health challenges for both developed and developing nations, with some rather chilling statistics. Worldwide, 1.9 billion adults and 42 million children are overweight or obese. Within the EU itself, Eurostat estimated in 2014 that 51.6 % of the EU’s population was overweight. One in three children in the EU is overweight.
