Femicide, the killing of women and girls because of their gender, was until recently included in the category ‘homicide’, obscuring the special features of this social and gendered phenomenon. However, the majority of murders of women are perpetrated by men whom they know from family ties and are the result of intimate partner violence or so-called ‘honour’ killings. This book is the first one on femicide in Europe and presents the findings of a four-year project discussing various aspects of femicide. Written by leading international scholars with an interdiscplinary perspective, it looks at the prevention programmes and comparative quantitative and qualitative data collection, as well as the impact of culture. It proposes the establishment of a European Observatory on Femicide as a new direction for the future, showing the benefits of cross-national collaboration, united to prevent the murder of women and girls.

COST Action FP1402 is a research network established under the aegis of the “Forests, their Products and Services.” The aim of the Action was to overcome the gap between broadly available scientific results and the specific information needed by designers, industry, authorities and code committees, providing transfer for practical application in timber design and innovation.

The aim of this document is to report the state of the art in terms of research and practice of Timber-Concrete Composite (TCC) systems, in order to summarize the existing knowledge in the single countries and to develop a common understanding of the design of TCC.

This state of the art report (STAR) was written by the core group of working group 2 of COST Action FP1402 “Basis of Structural Timber Design – from Research to Standards” and it addresses all those who are interested in the properties and design of cross laminated timber (CLT) elements used as plates, diaphragms or as beams.

This report represents the results of the activities performed in working group 1, Basis of Design. The most important task of working group 1 was the defragmentation and harmonization of techniques and methods that are necessary to prove the reliable, safe and economic application of timber materials or products in the construction industry.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most frequent neoplasms worldwide and an important cause of morbidity in the developed world. It is necessary to identify individuals with a medium-high CRC risk in order to develop adequate preventive measures. The identification of inherited genetic factors involved in CRC susceptibility can help to profile individual disease risk and may enable early screening and treatment monitoring.

Cooperation Studies on Inherited Susceptibility to Colorectal Cancer, COST Action BM1206 (2013-2017) was chaired by Dr Sergei Castellvi-Bel.
