Innovation in molecular radiotherapy

In 2020, 2.7 million people in the European Union were diagnosed with cancer and 1.3 million lives were lost to the disease. The EU Commission supports research to improve prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Quality of life for patients during treatment is also a priority, and is an important factor for ev...

Validating ion engines for interplanetary travel

Space exploration has provided insights into the formation of the solar system and processes underway on Earth. Missions to Venus, for example, have informed us on the greenhouse effect and the dangers of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Ion engines, a form of electric propulsion, may be preferable to chemical rockets for such missi...

Harmonising pre-pack verification tests

Many products are generated by continuous manufacturing processes. Ensuring that packs conform to producer’s or customer’s requirements relies on verifying the contents of products against specification. This is performed by automatic weighing instruments without human intervention. Products are sent along constantly moving con...

Support for Balkan mammography services

In Europe 1 in 8 women develop breast cancer before the age of 85, and early diagnosis increases survival chances. National x-ray screening programmes are being introduced throughout the EU, underpinned by a measurement traceability hierarchy to ensure the quality of the services provided. This includes checking that EU safety ...

Detecting contaminants in soil

Land reclaimation and redevelpment is converting old industrial sites for new uses such as housing. Ensuring that no lingering contamination remains and that any found is not redistributed to other locations is becoming increasingly important. Construction companies are required to conduct detailed soil analyses to identify pol...
