Special Feature: The growing power of media content convergence


Media content convergence is the theme of this month's Research*EU special feature. The feature looks at the way in which we consume media, and how it is gradually becoming more fragmented and less dependent on the flag-bearers of 20th century traditional media.

Life After this month catches up with the STEFY project that has developed an innovative device to increases food safety, whilst Project of the Month highlights a project that has been working hard with local stakeholders to increase the sustainability of aquaculture in the Lake Victoria region in Africa.
