Citizen Foodie
Citizen Foodie One way communication does not work. No better proof is that previous attempts to increase public awareness of healthily eating have failed. Despite numerous campaigns, no significant change occurred in patterns of food purchase and consumption.
Fibers as immune system boosters
Fibers as immune system boosters Staying healthy requires constantly stimulating the immune system. Ingesting non-digestible fibres such as polysaccharides is thought to help. Yet companies including such ingredients in their food products cannot claim that they boost the immune system.
Big Brother Watching Teens’ Diet and Play
Big Brother Watching Teens’ Diet and Play “The key factors we are interested in are food choice and physical activity ,” Wolfgang Ahrens, an epidemiologist from the University of Bremen , Germany tells youris.com.
A Black Hole´s Dinner
A Black Hole´s Dinner The black hole at the centre of the galaxy, formally known as Sagittarius A* , fascinates scientists. By mid-2013 a gas cloud is expected to pass in its vicinity at a distance of only 36 light-hours (equivalent to 40.
Gold nanoparticles enhance cancer diagnostics
Gold nanoparticles enhance cancer diagnostics Gold nanoparticles ( AuNPs ) present the many advantages of displaying relative biocompatibility, high light absorption and strong optical scattering properties. They are therefore good candidates to be used as probes for cancer imaging .
A holistic approach to energy saving in buildings
A holistic approach to energy saving in buildings A new Directive, dubbed the energy performance of buildings Directive (EPBD), brings the new concept of net -zero energy buildings (NZEB) meaning buildings with a zero energy balance that have a better level of energy performance than the standard energy efficiency requirements in current building codes.
Nano Nose Smells Cancer
Nano Nose Smells Cancer Chances of survival of prostate cancer depend strongly on the stage at which the disease is diagnosed. Now scientists have developed new methods relying on an electronic nose and optoacoustics to improve the diagnosis techniques and avoid fatal treatment delays.
Juggling with air pollutant data
Juggling with air pollutant data New air pollutant emission targets have just been introduced in the EU. Chance of meeting these new targets has recently been tremendously improved by considerable progress on how emissions from different sources are measured and estimated.
Bioalchemy: turning sludge into clear water
Bioalchemy: turning sludge into clear water The process was developed by the Water Research Institute (WRI) of the Italian National Research Council and tested and scaled-up as part the EU-funded Innowatech project We know that biological processes offer the cheapest way to treat industrial wastewater.
A Window Through Time
A Window Through Time Going from modern energy efficient houses to historic buildings must have been a big leap for you.
Earth-Like Planet Discovery
Earth-Like Planet Discovery The discovery of planets in a habitable zone rises the hope that astronomers could soon answer the question of whether we are alone in the universe.
Beauty is in the moth's eyes
Beauty is in the moth's eyes If you wear glasses, you are probably reading this article by looking through a tiny, transparent layer of nanomaterial.
Tilmann Leisegang: "Towards a miniature X-ray laboratory"
Tilmann Leisegang: "Towards a miniature X-ray laboratory" More than a century after their discovery, X-rays still claim their place in medicine and science.
Eco-friendly trains with hybrid energy storage
Eco-friendly trains with hybrid energy storage Hydro-mechanical diesel multiple units (DMUs), multiple unit trains powered by diesel engines, are needed in regional traffic.

Prof. Karsten Voss “It doesn’t make sense to set up a one and only definition in energy codes in Europe” Professor Karsten Voss works at the school of architecture at the University of Wuppertal in Germany.
Prof. Andreas Wagner “A remarkable gap of 30% between the planned and the real energy consumption”
Prof. Andreas Wagner “A remarkable gap of 30% between the planned and the real energy consumption” What projects are you working on at the moment? We are involved in a German research program called Energy-optimised Construction. It funds monitoring of buildings.
The Nano Laboratory
The Nano Laboratory Within the European Research Project Fiblys, they have therefore redesigned their microscope to a fully functional nano-laboratory.
A multi-nano tool can introduce something new under the sun
A multi-nano tool can introduce something new under the sun In the European funded project FIBLYS (or FIB anaLYSis) three industry and four research partners from Czech Republic, France, Germany and Switzerland have created a multi-nano tool named FIBLYS .

Christian Mittermayr: “Rapid detection of pathogens in water supply networks increases public security” Dr. Christian Mittermayr from Lambda GmbH is the Coordinator of the EU research project DINAMICS, involving major European stakeholders from the relevant branches, end users and production system suppliers, ICT providers, SMEs and academic and research institutes.
Nanosized diamonds enable progress in retinal prostheses
Nanosized diamonds enable progress in retinal prostheses An artificial device in the form of a retinal prosthesis can replace dead photoreceptor cells by electrically stimulating the remaining neurons. Two examples of retinal prostheses are digital camera-type electrode arrays and photodiode arrays .
