What is an RSS Newsfeed?

RSS stands for «Really Simple Syndication» and is a platform-independent electronic format which allows you to subscribe to a frequently updated news source. You will receive a summary message when new information (or an RSS Newsfeed) has been placed online at www.empa.ch. After receiving each new summary you can see at a glance the most important details, and can then decide for yourself whether to go to the complete report on the Empa homepage and read it in full.


What do I need in order to be able to read RSS News?

To subscribe to an RSS service and to read the data supplied you need a particular kind of program known as an RSS Reader (examples are RSSREader and FeedReader). You will find a list of free RSS Readers at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS. All the more recent web browsers such as Mozilla, Internet Explorer 7 and Safari can be used as RSS Readers, and you can also administer and read RSS feeds in Outlook, Microsoft’s mail program.
