Special Feature: EU Researchers Tackle Pollution for a Cleaner, Greener Europe


This month's special feature highlights seven EU-funded projects carrying out innovative research and development into novel solutions for achieving a pollution free Europe, in-line with the EU Zero Pollution Action Plan, due to launch in Spring 2021 and part of the European Commission’s European Green Deal initiative.  Project of the Month celebrates the launch of a major new milestone - the creation of Europe’s largest and most far-reaching astronomy network.  Life After, catches up with Israeli SME MeMed Diagnostics that was funded under the AutoPilot-Dx project and find out how they have actively adapted their novel diagnostic assay to contribute to the fight against COVID-19.  Finally, EU Agenda provides an overview of the (primarily online) events taking place.
