Robot-Era is an EU-funded research project which develops and demonstrates the general feasibility, effectiveness and acceptability of a set of advanced robotic services. The services are integrated in intelligent environments and will actively cooperate with older people to help them live an independent life. The project has set up a short survey to collect stakeholders' opinions on introducing robotic services in healthcare facilities. Read more
Flagship-affiliated physicists from RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich together with colleagues in Japan devised a method for peeling graphene flakes from a CVD substrate with the help of intermolecular forces. Read more
Researchers with Europe’s Graphene Flagship have demonstrated superconducting electric currents in the two-dimensional material graphene that bounce between sheet edges without scattering. This first direct observation of the ballistic mirroring of electron waves in a 2d system with supercurrents could lead to the use of graphene-based Josephson junctions in applications such as advanced digital logic circuits, ultrasensitive magnetometers and voltmeters.

Business Insider UK compiled a list of 50 scientists from across the globe who are changing the world for the better. Katrin Amunts, working at Jülich Research Centre (DE) has been nominated for her work on the "BigBrain", which aims to create a 3D atlas of the human brain and should lead to unprecedented insights into the construction and organization of the brain and how it drives our behavior. She is co-leader of the Strategic Human Brain Data subproject. Read more
Graphene Flagship researchers have developed an optical fibre laser that emits pulses with durations equivalent to just a few wavelengths of the light used. This fastest ever laser based on graphene will be ideal for use in ultrafast spectroscopy, and in surgical lasers that avoid heat damage to living tissue. Read more
The ISC High Performance is the world's oldest High Performance Computing (HPC) community event, presenting the latest HPC technological developments and their application in research and commercial environments. This year the conference celebrated its 30th anniversary with about 2800 participants from 56 countries ( July 12 to July 16, 2015). Read more
142 SMEs from 23 countries have been selected in the latest round of Horizon 2020 SME Instrument Phase 1. For each project, the participants will receive €50,000 to finance feasibility studies. They can also request up to three days of business coaching. Read more
By 1 December 2014 the first 100 calls had closed. What can we tell about the popularity of the programme, the success of SMEs, the degree to which the programme has attracted newcomers - both as participants and as expert evaluators - the proportion of women experts and the speed with which contracts have been signed?
