Research for regions: a coherent research area for Europe
This issue of Research*EU magazine is dedicated to ‘Regions for research: a coherent research area for Europe.’ We speak to Dr Anu Reinart, director of Estonia’s Tartu Observatory. She is also the lead researcher of the EU-funded EstSpacE project. EstSpacE is working towards enhancing space research potential of Estonian scientific institutes by collaborating with other European partners as well as the ESA. Dr Reinart shares her experiences with us and provides a compelling insight into her work at EstSpacE.
We start off the issue by first delving into the human brain and exploring the root causes of chronic brain conditions like Parkinson’s. The article, listed in the biology and medicine section, discusses how researchers are focusing their efforts on an important and somewhat enigmatic portion of the brain called the basal ganglia, which is responsible for motor control and cognitive aspects of behaviour.
The energy and transport section leads with an article on the need for greater investment in wind power research. An article on forging new ties between researchers leads the environment and society section. The article discusses an EU-funded project that is strengthening the research capacity and cooperation in central European countries.
In our IT and telecommunications section, we see how European research is attempting to better archive raw footage. The research will help broadcasters search, retrieve and use raw footage with much greater ease.
