Climate change can disrupt ecological, social and economic systems, with some regions and sectors suffering significantly. Therefore, adaptation plays a paramount role in responding to climate change. Progress has been made, but there are still important obstacles. Knowledge of the benefits and costs of adaptation is sparse, unsystematic and unevenly distributed across sectors and countries. Plan ...

"In August 2009 was fully implemented the reform of the Common Market Organization for wine (CR Nº479/2008, 29-04-2008). It aims at reducing the 24 million hl/year surplus of basic low quality wine, phasing out the €500 million/year spent on wine disposal subsidies and making EU wine more competitive. This reform, together with other market constraints will endanger all EU winegrowing SMEs. To sur ...

"In Europe, about 35% of all primary energy use and 40% of all greenhouse gas emissions come from private households. While technological innovation can make low-carbon energy sources economically and environmentally viable, their impact in reducing carbon-intensive energy use will depend critically on broad public and political commitment to such a reduction. GILDED will target socio-economic, cu ...

The discovery of the green fluorescent protein (GFP), and its applications have revolutionized many fields of life sciences. The GFP (and other fluorescent proteins, XFPs) have now been used as a basis for development of optical sensors of a wide range of cellular properties and processes. In order to convert changes in cellular properties into an optically detectable signal, the currently used ...
