Stability is crucial – pioneering survey about researchers under 45 in Hungary

Devotion to and the excitement of discovery launch young people on scientific careers. However, young researchers under 35 consider their futures to be the most unsafe. These are the most important findings of a recent survey initiated by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, which addressed the whole of the Hungarian scientific community.

Wheat is a major staple cereal grain consumed worldwide that provides a major source of high-quality nutrition to humankind. However, for a small subset of the population, a range of wheat components, principally proteins, are associated with a number of important medical illnesses that can affect patient health and quality of life and, in some cases, can be life-threatening.

EASAC: we need cheaper solar panels and better quality batteries in “Smart Villages”

This summary of key findings and recommendations of the Smart Villages Initiative over the period 2014–2017 is intended to inform policy-makers and development organisations in the European Union concerned with rural development in Africa, Asia and Latin America. It draws on a detailed report of the findings (Holmes, 2017), which in turn provides links to the wealth of underpinning material generated by the Smart Village Initiative’s engagement programmes and research over the 3-year period
