Researchers from the EU-funded research project HELiCoiD have developed hyper-spectral imaging technologies which can help distinguish more accurately between healthy tissue and that affected by tumour. The prototype hyper-spectral camera has been tested during brain cancer surgery at Negrín Hospital Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, in Spain. This non-invasive technology can provide more detailed information allowing real-time identification of healthy and affected tissue during brain surgery. Read more

Without change, the EU will inevitably become less competitive, less attractive and less economically viable. Making changes now and into the future to a more circular, resource efficient economic model is not without risk. However, as the developing world continues along linear growth path, the EU and its Member States have the opportunity to reinvent their economies and make them globally competitive. And systemic eco-innovation is at the heart of the paradigm shift which is needed. Read more
