Introducing the seventeenth edition of the Project Repository Journal which is live and freely available to read here.

Welcome to both our loyal readers and new visitors alike.

As always, we feature an incredibly diverse range of projects that highlight ingenuity and collaboration within the scientific community.

Every project in this edition strives to create a better future for us all. We often need to examine the past to move forward and improve, as eloquently stated in the article ‘Experience the precision of time: radiocarbon 3.0’ (RESOLUTION, page 52).

In addition to our contributors thought-provoking articles, we remain committed to staying informed about the latest developments in science. From healthcare breakthroughs to renewable energy solutions and biodiversity research, we strive to bring you relevant and captivating discoveries. If you would like to tell the story of your project, please get in touch.

We extend our gratitude to the researchers and contributors who continue to make the PRj possible. To our readers, I hope that you enjoy this edition. And to you all, we’re proud to be a part of your continued commitment to dissemination and collaboration.

Please get in touch with the EDMA team if you require further information about any of our contributors or would like more information on how you can take part.

Women in the blue economy projects ready to start: think big, go blue!

Following the EMFAF call for proposals on Women in the Blue Economy, CINEA has awarded EU grants to two projects with the objective of bridging the gender gap in the blue economy.

Evaluation of ERC grant proposals: what to expect in 2024

The 2024 ERC Work Programme is expected to be formally adopted in July 2023, and some of the planned changes that the ERC Scientific Council has proposed to introduce were made public last December (evaluation forms and processes) and in March this year (new panels and lump sum funding).

How can magnets fight cancer?

A novel idea proposed by European researchers would guide immunotherapy cells to where they are needed most.

How can tears ease the burden of diabetes?

Monitoring glucose levels requires diabetics to prick their fingers—but this could soon change, thanks to a new technique using tears instead of blood.

Demonstrating blockchain’s transformative potential for healthcare
