When the Sun goes wild

2015 | Action ES1005

What are the manifestations of solar activity? Two scientists (Nicole Vilmer, from the Observatory of Paris, France, and Laure Lefèvre, from the Royal Observatory of Belgium) discuss this topic. This movie was produced by COST action TOSCA (Towards a more complete assessment of the impact of solar variability on climate), a multidisciplinary European network of scientists from 20 countries whose objective is to provide a better understanding of the hotly debated role of the Sun in climate change.

COST Workshop on Social Robotics

2013

The future concept and reality of Social Robotics: Challenges, Perception and Applications – Role of Social Robotics in current and future society

Researchers have exerted considerable efforts to advance the robotic technologies as well as to understand their social implications. As a result, robotics is now a highly articulated field with various types of robots already assisting numerous areas of human activity. Despite their increasing significance and relevance, the general public tends to think that robots still belong to the world of science fiction and research laboratories.

Wood Sample Preparation for Microscopic Analysis

2015 | Action FP1106

This demonstration was produced by the Department of Wood Science and Technology, University Ljubljana (Slovenia), in cooperation with the Slovenian Forest Institute and the Department of Geography and Regional Planning, University Zaragoza (Spain).

The film demonstrates how to process high-quality permanent thin sections for xylem and phloem formation studies following the embedding in paraffin methodology.
The script is based on the protocol written by Peter Prislan from the Department of Wood Science and Technology, University Ljubljana (Slovenia).

COST Action MP0804 - Highly Ionised Pulse Plasma processes

2014 | Action MP0804

This COST Action contributes to reducing green house gas emissions and enables European industry to stay competitive globally. It does so by helping SMEs create new market opportunities for innovative plasma technologies to become a truly European success story, similarly to Laser technology.

Targeted Radionuclide Therapy

2012

COST Action BM0607 on Targeted Radionuclide Therapy created a short film on the application of radiolabeled peptides for targeted therapy; 177Lu-DOTA-octreotate emits gamma and beta particle radiation, the peptide molecules bind somatostatin receptors on tumor cells and can be applied for both tumor imaging and radionuclide therapy.

Light as air: aerosols, a key player in the atmosphere

2015 | Action ES1005

What role do aerosols play in mediating the impact of solar variability on climate ? Benjamin Laken, from the Astrophysical Institute of the Canarian Islands, discusses with us this question. This movie was produced by COST action TOSCA (Towards a more complete assessment of the impact of solar variability on climate), a multidisciplinary European network of scientists from 20 countries whose objective is to provide a better understanding of the hotly debated role of the Sun in climate change.
