Research is providing the data needed to help Europe transition towards more sustainable plant protein production. The EU-funded Legumes Translated project is gathering that knowledge and turning it into practical action.
With the first commercial eVTOL aircraft flights due to start in just over 24 months from now, much work remains to be done in certifying the new models. But there is arguably at least as much complexity to be resolved to meet the requirement to develop the ground infrastructure needed for these new aircraft to operate from, and new vertiports are already being planned in multiple cities worldwide.
By creating an ecosystem of different species of marine life, researchers aim to help reduce aquaculture’s environmental impact while also increasing productivity.
According to the CDC, cigarette smoking is responsible for as much as 90% of lung cancer deaths in the U.S. As such, it should come as no surprise that the best way to prevent lung cancer is to not smoke or, if you do, to quit. But what about the use of e-cigarettes, or vaping — particularly by former smokers?
According to a recent European Radiology study, the use of short-protocol brain MRI on emergency patients with inconclusive neurological symptoms is a cost-effective method for detecting minor strokes.
The use of e-cigarettes, also known as vaping, has risen over the past decade. In 2019, an illness linked to vaping was discovered following an outbreak of unexplained respiratory illnesses in Wisconsin. According to a Chest Journal study, vaping induced lung injury, which came to be known as e-cigarette or vaping-induced lung injury (EVALI), hospitalized 2,807 and killed 68 people between March 2019 and February 2020.
From California to Turkey to Australia, wildfires, also known as bushfires, are everywhere – and they’re increasing in both frequency and intensity. In 2020, over 10.2 million acres of land were affected by wildfires in the United States alone, compared to just 3.4 million acres lost in 2010.1
To advance the use of AI in the manufacturing sector, the EU-Japan.AI project is supporting greater collaboration between East and West.
Much of the hype around anticipated urban air mobility services using eVTOL aircraft implies it will democratize local air transportation. This implies flight prices that will be far more affordable than today’s private helicopter and light aircraft charters, which at face value could seem hard to believe. So FutureFlight tried to assess the basis for these claims.
New research shows the important role mathematical modelling tools can play in understanding how COVID-19 spreads – and mitigating its effects.
