€1 billion to kick-start 19 low-carbon technology projects, including the first large-scale carbon and capture storage project in the EU! 

The funding comes from the sale of carbon allowances – a good way to apply the polluter pays principle. Great news for the #climate

Could a chocolate a day keep the doctor away?

European medical researchers say that some of the ingredients in cocoa could actually play a role in keeping our hearts healthy (as part of a nutritious diet, not all on it's own)

Happy International Chocolate Day!

If you’re a researcher looking for funding or know someone who is, keep reading! Today, a new call for #research projects was launched, searching for ideas that could improve people’s lives.

Research partnerships between the EU, the private sector and EU countries have now their first calls for projects and partners under Horizon 2020, the EU's €80 billion research and innovation programme. Worth a total of €1.13 billion in public funding, which will be matched by a comparable amount from the private partners, the first round of funding will go into projects that will improve people's lives as well as boost international competitiveness of Europe's industry - everything from new treatments for diabetes and eye disease, to a rolling out hydrogen-powered road vehicles and refuelling stations!

Football has its rules, the world has its rights  The first semi-final of the #WorldCup took place in Belo Horizonte , where the #EU helps to improve prisoners' conditions and their future in #Brazil

In alternative prisons, whose costs are much lower than traditional ones, escapes are extremely rare, the reconviction rate is much lower, and detainees receive professional training allowing them to be rehabilitated on their way out. More details here: http://bit.ly/1i12Pgc

Need more science research in the whole the the EU, so opportunities are not lost.    But pushing the bias towards the west neglects the east.  I certainly do not want to see eastern Europe left as farmland to grow crops for the western Europe, but that is my fear upon this.

Need some spreading out and divergence, too many factors pushing people into small area's that cause more problems than they solve.  

Maybe faster internet in all those area's, hard to say as it gets down to opportunities and ability.  With both not being addressed.
Do wonder what Nicola Telsa would do today in today's modern Europe, would he still of gone to America I wonder.

Maybe time to raise the standard in bad education area's, would be good for all.

+TP Wu I'm not fighting, I just question that which seems not exactly right can could be better.  But that is me in general.

If you have a disabled friend then ask them and get to know what problems they have, then you can see things from a different perspective and with that seeing the problems and defining the problem is always the biggest part of any problem.

In the 21st century, Data is the new oil!

Check the infographic on #BigData and read our call for governments to embrace such potential with more cross-border coordination or infrastructure.

+GEORGE DRACHTIDAKOS There is education in Africa, just that anybody with an education cares so much that they leave to another country. 

Then health care, whole modern world poached every nurse and doctor Africa had pretty much and who can blame them.  Just shows who cares the most about the place when they all leave pretty much.  

Now an educated person , who cares about Africa, now that is hard, but they happen, just need more.

Introduction
The Commission's job is to represent and uphold the interests of the EU as a whole. It is headed by 28 Commissioners, 1 per country.

Mission
The Commission is independent of national governments. Its job is to represent and uphold the interests of the EU as a whole.

Description
The European Commission (EC) is the 'engine room' of the EU. It is one of 3 main EU institutions; the other two are the European Parliament (EP) and the Council (of the European Union).

The Commission prepares legislation for adoption by the Council (representing the member countries) and the Parliament (representing the citizens).

It administers the budget and the policy programmes (Agriculture, Fisheries, Research etc.) in cooperation with authorities in the member countries. The EC also services the 27 EU Commissioners.

Visit http://www.europa.eu/ if you want to learn more about the EU, or call the free service number 00 800 6789 10 11 from anywhere in the EU, they speak all 23 official languages.
