GEARING-Roles – CORDIS Project of the Month June 2021

GEARING-Roles announced as the CORDIS Project of the Month for June 2021 CORDIS are featuring the GEARING-Roles project as their Project of the Month due to its intrepid work in the field of gender roles and gender equality in the research and innovation sectors. In particular, CORDIS are highlighting the project’s board game, ‘Nobel Run’,…

Forging new paths in particle physics

Three EU-backed physicists have used a new mathematical approach to make calculating particle collisions much easier. Everything we see around us is made up of elementary particles, the building blocks of matter. We know that protons and neutrons are made up of particles called quarks and that electrons are important building blocks for atoms. Thanks…

Virus cocktails and ice guns could help to tackle food poisoning risk

By Sandrine Ceurstemont Bacterial infections are a major problem for poultry producers. Outbreaks of E. coli, for example, can spread quickly through a flock, resulting in high mortality and loss of income for farmers. Other bacteria such as Salmonella and Campylobacter might not be as serious to the birds, but can lead to illness in…

How chemists are building molecular assembly lines

By Caleb Davies In 2016, three pioneers of building molecular machines were recognised with a Nobel prize. Their work broke new ground. But the first tranche of molecular machines that they were rewarded for creating were mostly simple affairs such as rotors, switches and the like. Now chemists like Professor David Leigh at the University…

New nanotechnology for therapeutic purposes: ANGIE:

ANGIE will create an innovation eco-system around a radically new technology for localized targeted drug delivery in clinical environments based on magnetically steerable wireless nanodevices. Current methods of drug delivery are limited in the sense of efficacy, as they cannot guarantee precise control of the drug release kinetics and modulation of the concentrations. The ANGIE…

Commission awards €508 million to 75 health research projects

The final year of Horizon 2020 sees the largest total award for collaborative research for health. The 75 projects short-listed after evaluation will involve 1158 participants from 58 countries. Following signatures of grant agreements in the coming weeks, they should receive a total of €508 million in grants to address a wide range of crucial…
