Food and Natural Resources

An EU-funded project is encouraging debate on responsible robotics to promote widespread social acceptance of AI-based robotic technologies in four key areas.
Researchers grow glasswort and grey mullet together for the first time in an aquaponics experiment, and study the growth of greater amberjack reared in sea cages, all under one EU-funded project.
A new study shows a link between the windborne iron aerosols from Australia’s 2019-2020 wildfires deposited in the Southern Ocean and the massive algal blooms observed there, raising new questions about oceanic carbon uptake.
An EU-backed team is developing an innovative photonics sensor for fast and reliable food safety monitoring in Europe’s fruit and vegetable production and distribution chains.
A new study explores the climate and air quality benefits of removing methane from the atmosphere – a crucial complementary approach to current CO2 emissions reduction efforts.
Europe’s agricultural success has come at the cost of a reliance on a small number of high-yielding crops, supported by high inputs of fertilisers and pesticides. Diversifying the crops we grow can support the ecological processes necessary to preserve biodiversity and ensure healthier and more sustainable diets.
An EU-funded team’s novel precision aquaculture technology helps farmers predict water quality events that could affect mussel and oyster culture and lead to site closures.
The EU Green Deal sets a target for 25 % of agricultural land to be organic by 2030. Meeting this ambitious goal demands continuous research and innovation in sustainable food production. The CORE Organic Cofund is helping to drive this transition by increasing cooperation between international research activities.
Researchers studied over 10 000 Capsicum annuum pepper samples from gene banks worldwide to gain insight into the history of this common food.
Residents in the Portuguese city of Porto get help making their own compost, and urban metabolism is analysed as an important tool in transitioning to a circular economy.
Do Europeans really wash their hands after handling raw chicken? An EU-backed study takes a closer look at five European countries’ hygiene practices in the kitchen.
A bulk cargo carrier was recently the test site for a variety of remote inspection techniques (RITs) that demonstrated how robotics solutions can make for quicker, safer and more efficient ship inspections.
EU-funded researchers say chickpeas, fava beans, lentils and quinoa are ideal crops for cultivation in Europe and could help the shift towards a more nutritional, environmentally friendly and sustainable food system.
EU-backed researchers have developed a solution that can improve crop yields while reducing resource consumption for a more sustainable future.
EU-backed scientists show us how smart materials called magnetoactive polymers (MAPs) could someday be used to stimulate healing in epithelial wounds.
An EU-backed study has found that remote monitoring using satellites and drones could make nature-based solutions better able to protect communities from devastating natural hazards.
Planting more legumes can provide human nutrition at a lower environmental cost, advise EU-backed researchers.
EU-funded researchers studied the connection between equatorial current fluctuations and changes in oxygen content. They discovered that stronger upper-ocean currents have led to higher oxygen concentrations in the equatorial Atlantic.
EU-backed food scientists are using ultrasound technology to produce fruit juices and smoothies that are more nutritional and have a longer shelf life.
New research has shown that the Greenland ice sheet will melt 60 % more by 2100 than scientists had thought, pushing rising sea levels from 10 cm to 18 cm.
