Project stories

EU researchers have developed a new model for collecting data across the manufacturing life cycle and storing it all in one place. Accessing this data, prototype apps have helped to improve metrics by nearly 90 % in SME advanced manufacturing trials, hinting at how apps could transform this sector in Europe. Read more
Pancreatic cancer is usually detected too late, leaving patients little hope of recovery. But this may be about to change. A Swedish SME has developed a blood test to help clinicians identify new cases earlier, and it intends to make this diagnostic capability available very soon. Clinical validation is under way in an EU-funded project. Read more
EU-funded project ECOCHAMPS aims to make hybrid vehicles more attractive to buyers by developing ways to improve their performance and lower prices - increasing Europe's competitiveness in the market. Read more
The Discognosis project developed a tool (the LabDisk) that can diagnose malaria and other febrile infectious diseases simultaneously in just an hour – allowing faster point-of-care treatment and precise drugs administration that could save thousands of lives. Read more
ICT4Life is a three-year project co-financed under Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, that kicked off earlier this year with the ambition to provide new services for integrated care employing user-friendly ICT tools, ultimately increasing patients with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and other dementias and their caregivers’ quality of life and autonomy at home.

Many industries - and each of our cells - depend on emulsions. An EU-funded researcher has developed a method for studying molecules at the interface between oil nanodroplets and the water-based liquid contained in these substances. Her work advances understanding of liquid interfaces and emulsion stability, and is of great interest to industry. Read more
There is no question that protecting biological diversity is essential to maintaining ecosystems around the world. But what about the human populations that live in these protected environments? Read more
A European consortium has tested a range of advanced technologies for trucks and other heavy vehicles that has the potential to reduce fuel consumption by up to 18 %, lower CO2 emissions by 13 %, and meet increasingly stringent environmental standards. Read more
The EU-funded project PROSPECT aims to develop, test and demonstrate innovative in-vehicle active safety systems that better protect vulnerable road users in Europe, such as pedestrians and cyclists. Read more
The FAROS project proposes updated ship designs that address issues such as crew fatigue, sea sickness and stress, which can be major causes of marine accidents, potentially resulting in pollution, injuries and even death. Read more
