This article presents EU funded projects working on how to combat water scarcity in remote islands in mediterranean regions.
As people use water in various industrial processes, they tend to pollute it. To protect the environment and ensure people have clean drinking water, people need to treat wastewater.
Drought and water scarcity are impacting the agricultural industry in Europe, and farmers may need to change their tactics to adapt to the changing climate.
A network of young scientists demonstrated that they have a unique role to play in helping to protect endangered fish species. Specifically, they are involved in developing better production strategies for salmon, eels and sturgeons, under the umbrella of a European project called IMPRESS. To develop conservation solutions through innovative research, they seek to pair their research objectives with understanding the needs of fishing communities and conservation policy makers. This example shows the potential for evidence-based policies can make a difference to wild fish species.
This story began as a report of a one-off case of potential predatory practice last month, and has escalated to an official call to disband an entire international editorial board, and an accusation against the editor of mass-scale nepotism and other Read more […]
The voyage towards open access was never going to be easy, especially in a field as conservative as academic publishing. Of late the seas have been stirred to greater turbulence by the waves of activity spreading open access across the globe.The increasing apparent complexities surrounding open access can be off-putting. But given that the rise of open access publishing is now widely seen as inexorable it is more important than ever that researchers take the trouble to inform themselves about this issue.
This poem by Charlotte Ndiribe makes us reflect about the human in planet earth and the interaction with nature.
Prioritizing green infrastructure like urban gardening, cities can better adapt to climate change and reduce their environmental impact.
Pharmaceutical analysis is advancing to improve drug discovery and safety. Here are five top pharmaceutical trends driving the sector today.
This article evidences results from ESOF 2020, by having travel grantees telling their personal experiences as early-career researchers.
This article reflects on what is overpopulation, what causes it and what happens if we don’t think about the currently population growth.
Interdisciplinarity has become a key for science development and ESOF is an opportunity for young researchers to practice it.
