This is a new, more comprehensive & ambitious plan that Commissioners' are presenting. This agenda is essential for our economy, for jobs in the future, for our environment - for sustainability on all levels: economic, social and environmental. The future is not in low-wage production, the future is not in making things with finite components. The future is providing services to the citizens in a long-term process. Services that then materialize in products, instead of the other way around, and products that are used and re-used time and time again, so that you reduce the use of raw materials and don't deplete the earth's natural resources. Circular economy - investments for the future!

Breakthrough discovery in astronomy: first ever image of a black hole
 
52:37
On 10 April 2019 at 15:00 CEST (Brussels time) the European Commission presented a ground-breaking discovery by Event Horizon Telescope - an international scientific collaboration aiming to capture the first image of a black hole by creating a virtual Earth-sized telescope. EU-funded researchers play a key role in the project. Black holes are extremely compressed cosmic objects, containing incredible amounts of mass within a tiny region. Their presence affects their surroundings in extreme ways, by warping spacetime and super-heating any material falling into it. The captured image reveals the black hole at the centre of Messier 87, a massive galaxy in the constellation of Virgo. This black hole is located 55 million light-years from Earth and has a mass 6.5-billion times larger than our sun. Six press conferences around the world took place simultaneously. In Europe, Commissioner Moedas and lead scientists funded by the European Research Council held a press conference in Brussels to unveil the discovery. Panelists: - Carlos Moedas, European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation - Prof. Anton Zensus, Director at Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie, Bonn, Germany (Chair of the EHT Collaboration Board) - Prof. Heino Falcke, Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands (Chair of the EHT Science Council) - Dr Monika Mościbrodzka, Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands (EHT Working Group Coordinator) - Prof. Luciano Rezzolla, Goethe Universität, Frankfurt, Germany (EHT Board Member) - Prof. Eduardo Ros, Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie, Bonn, Germany, (EHT Board Secretary) EC press release: https://europa.eu/!nr97rr Scientific press release by EHT: https://blackholecam.org/erc_bhc_pr-2/ More insights by Jonathan O’Callaghan's article: https://europa.eu/!mb77wB Behind the scene with the black hole scientists: https://europa.eu/!xx46nf #EHTBlackHole #BlackHoleDay #RealBlackHole #BlackHoles

About a third of the food for human consumption is wasted globally - around 1.3 billion tons per year, according to FAO; Food waste in industrialized countries is as high as in developing countries: In developing countries, over 40% of food losses happen after harvest and during processing; In industrialised countries, over 40% occurs at retail and consumer level. Food is wasted throughout the whole food chain -- from farmers to consumers -- and for various reasons.
