The Manifesto for EU Covid-19 Research celebrates its first 2000 
The Commission launched the Manifesto for EU Covid-19 Research in July, 
as part of the common European response to the coronavirus outbreak, to 
maximise the accessibility of research results in the fight against 
Covid-19. So far, more than 500 organisations (including universities, 
research institutes and private companies) endorsed the Manifesto, and 
1500 individuals from all over Europe expressed their support.

Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, 
Education and Youth said:

/The Manifesto for EU Covid-19 Research seeks the voluntary support and 
endorsement from public and private stakeholders benefiting from EU 
funding, other research funders and prominent individuals and 
institutions. After less than three months since its launch, I am 
delighted to see such a strong commitment from leading researchers, 
innovators and organisations. With their support, we can maximise the 
accessibility of research results in the fight against Covid-19. 
Together we are stronger and united against Coronavirus./

How COMPROP lifted the veil on political propaganda

An EU-funded project has been making a name for itself with its unique 
insights into political propaganda and misinformation on social media. 
The work of this project proves helpful at a time when our societies 
truly need it most. This is because disinformation keeps spreading 
online and is threatening the very foundations of our democracies.

We are starting to crack the mystery of how lightning and thunderstorms 

Imagine lying on a green hill watching the clouds go by on a beautiful 
day. The clouds you’re probably thinking of are cumulous clouds, the 
ones that resemble fluffy balls of cotton wool. They seem innocent 
enough. But they can grow into the more formidable cumulonimbus, the 
storm cloud. These are the monsters that produce thunder and lightning.
