From FP7 to Horizon 2020: tackling Europe's health challenges
As we write, about 50 % of health-related FP7 projects are on going, with scientists laying the foundations of future health research. To shed light on their efforts, the focus of this issue of Research*EU results magazine is ‘From FP7 to Horizon 2020: tackling Europe’s health challenges’.
This edition includes no less than three interviews focused on EU-funded health projects: Dr Jürgen Hescheler of Cologne University in Germany tells us how a novel toxicity test platform could replace animal testing and speed up chemicals testing, while Dr Wolfgang Weidenhammer of the Technical University of Munich in Germany sheds light on non-conventional medicine in Europe. Finally, Professor Vlad Ratziu of the Assistance Publique — Hôpitaux de Paris (APHP) explains how his project could help tackle liver disease in Europe. The ‘biology and medicine’ section continues with other examples of ground-breaking research. These ‘specials’ start with ‘Rising to the global challenge of food safety’, while others can be found in the ‘environment and society’ and ‘IT and telecommunications’ sections.
The ‘energy and transport’ section opens with an article entitled ‘Light weight, high-energy batteries for electric cars’, while the feature article in the ‘environment and society’ section is ‘Microbes join fight against desertification in North Africa’.
The ‘IT and telecommunications’ section begins with ‘Product engineering ... a complex marriage’. Finally, the ‘industrial technologies’ section starts with the inspiring ‘Revolutionising industrial safety in Europe’.
