After 7 years of dedicated research, a wealth of new information about the world-famous artist Hieronymous Bosch was discovered and shared. This project represents innovations in research, conservation and technology and is an excellent example of the link between research and the conservation of art. 🎨

☕ Coffee capsules have become extremely popular and estimated 10 billion are sold worldwide each year.
Unfortunately, after being used, most of them cannot be reused or recycled
A new project in #Italy 🇮🇹 – co-funded through the EU's LIFE programme – is working on a bio-based, compostable alternative which would still work with standard capsule coffee machines and provide us with coffee of the same quality. How's that for innovation?

#EarthDay
Our Earth's water cycle is being affected by #climatechange, which is seriously increasing the risk of heavy rains ☔ and extreme droughts around the globe. 🌍
EU-funded project BINGO analyses studies how average and extreme conditions of climate change scenarios will influence the water cycle in the next 10 years.
They focus on 6 countries across Europe: #Cyprus, #Germany, the #Netherlands, #Norway, #Portugal and #Spain.
Based on this analysis, BINGO proposes adaptation and risk-management strategies for decision- and policy-makers in the water-management sector.

Another winner cultural heritage project is Building 17 of the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Derwent Valley Mills in Derbyshire, UK. 🇬🇧 This was world’s first successful factory and was in a very poor state due to a complete lack of maintenance and unsuitable interventions. The project - initiated by a voluntary organisation, The Arkwright Society - represents a good adaptive reuse of industrial heritage and is a key component of an important ensemble of buildings.

#DYK that our flag symbolises both the European Union and the identity and unity of Europe?
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
It features a circle of 12 gold stars on a blue background.
The stars stand for the ideals of unity, solidarity and harmony among the peoples of Europe. 🕊️
The number of stars has nothing to do with the number of member countries, though the circle is a symbol of unity.
Our flag's history goes back to 1955 and was eventually adopted in 1985 as the official emblem of the European Communities, later to become the European Union. 🇪🇺 #europe #europeanunion #EU #flag #blue #funfacts #trivia #learnsomethingneweveryday #history #unity #solidarity #harmony #peace

50% of the sea's biodiversity has been lost in the last 50 years. 🌊
Coastal economies are also faced with factors like rising sea levels, fish overexploitation, and the refugee crisis. Now with the latest initiative fostering cooperation in the western Mediterranean region, there will be more sustainable blue growth, jobs and preserve diverse ecosystems. 🐟
The initiative is the result years of dialogue between 10 countries of the Western Mediterranean region who are ready and willing to work together on these shared interests for the region: 5 EU Member States (France, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Malta), and 5 Southern partner countries (Algeria, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco and Tunisia). 🌊

Do you eat #organic? It's a growing market in Europe! 🌱

That's why we've just introduced a new EU electronic certification system to better monitor imported organic products!
As demand for #organicproducts in the EU currently outstrips supply, customers in the EU need to be able to buy organic food and drink from further afield. Typical organic products imported into the EU include: • #coffee from #Brazil
#kiwi fruit from #NewZealand 🥝
#rice from #Thailand 🍚
#bananas from #CostaRica 🍌
#cocoa from #Peru 🌴
#pineapple from #Uganda 🍍
