Developing the Centre for Time Use Research – Time is a valuable commodity to society and the time use information, collected through surveys and the collection of detailed diaries potentially provides a comprehensive view of the conduct of daily life. Large Grant funding of c £1.9m over the next 5 years will enable the Centre for Time Use Research, led by Professor Jonathan Gershuny at the University of Oxford, to significantly expand and enhance the time use data available for researchers. Allowing more comprehensive analysis of how people from across 76 countries use their time; exploring how this has changed over time, if people's use of time is based on class, life stages or gender and how time use is affected by government policy.
Emotion Regulation of Others and Self - Sitting in a long traffic jam on a Friday afternoon and feeling stressed out most people would turn on the radio or wind down the window, this is a common technique that can be described as emotional regulation. Dr Peter Totterdell at University of Sheffield will lead the nine strong team of academics studying; Emotion Regulation of Others and Self: A Collaborative Research Network.
The project aims to investigate the mental and behavioural process of emotional regulation. When emotional regulation does not work it may lead to many mental health problems such as gambling alcohol and drug abused and even bipolar disorder. Understanding how people control their emotions can have great advantages to the individual well-being and performance of society. The project has been awarded c. £2.million over four years.

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.
When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
