Issue 43 of the research*eu results magazine: Seas and oceans - Studying Earth's final frontier
According to experts, an incredible 95 % of the world’s oceans haven’t been explored yet, despite covering over 70 % of the planet’s surface. These figures contrast not only with the critical role oceans play in our lives – be it for fisheries, trade, transport or scientific discoveries – but also with scientists’ current race against time when it comes to both discovering oceans’ well-kept secrets and preserving them from the effects of climate change.

To celebrate World Oceans Day and shed light on the challenges currently being faced by researchers, this issue of the research*eu results magazine focuses on research conducted in or related to seas and oceans. The magazine’s ‘special’ section contains 10 articles (including four exclusive interviews) which can roughly be split into three topics: deep-sea exploration, preserving resources of the sea and better understanding the impact of climate change on marine ecosystems.

Other topics in this edition include the following highlights:

- Empowering patients and improving treatment of Parkinson's disease
- Posture affects infants’ capacity to identify objects, study finds
- Sugar and jute aeroplane panels
- Enzymes - a new weapon in the war on drugs in water
- Switching Europe onto the next mobile generation
- Automating logistics for the factory of the future
- Organic materials show their magnetic nature

The research*eu results magazine is the main source of information for all findings related to EU-funded science projects. It covers a large spectrum of topics including biology and medicine, environment, energy, transport, ICT, industrial technologies, social sciences and space. It is published 10 times per year in English.
