Do you have a great idea for a research theme that could lead to a new technology? Could it become real if Europe's best minds were put together to work on it? Share your view and the European Commission can make it happen via its Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Flagship programme. Read more
From 10/02/2016 to 30/04/2016
Do you have a great idea for a future technology, far beyond what is currently possible? Could it become real if Europe's best minds were put on the task? Share your views and contribute to the identification of the themes of tomorrow's FET Proactive programme. The consultation is open until 30 April 2016. Read more
The second cut-off of the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Open call on 31 March 2015 resulted in 14 new projects retained for funding, 11* of them for Research and Innovation Actions (RIA) and three for Coordination and Support Actions (CSA). Ten of these projects have already begun, the rest will start soon. So far, together with the projects of the first cut-off date, work on 35 FET-Open projects is well under way. Read more
The European Commission has opened a public consultation on a new research and innovation initiative for sustainable food production and improved water management in the Mediterranean area. PRIMA, the Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area, will involve both EU and non-EU Mediterranean states. It will reinforce international cooperation in research and innovation to address the food and water-related challenges that are critical to the region's sustainable development. Read more
