From 21/02/2017 to 21/02/2017
Cyclists suffer a disproportionately high share of road accident injuries and fatalities. Through a combination of detection technologies, warning systems, information display and cooperation systems aimed at reducing collisions, EU-funded researchers are planning to cut fatality figures and make cycling safer.

From 16/02/2017 to 16/02/2017
Imagine wind turbine or aircraft wings that de-ice themselves in extreme conditions or floors and walls with invisible, built-in heating. Or even clothes that warm you up on the coldest of days. Read more

From 13/02/2017 to 13/02/2017
Future urban mobility will require more space for people and environmentally friendly vehicles, and less space for cars. L-category vehicles such as motorbikes and mopeds could be part of the solution, but potential users are put off by high prices. Read more

From 10/02/2017 to 10/02/2017
In a bid to achieve problem-free and proactive mobility solutions for transport, the EU-funded OPTIMUM project is developing IT systems to monitor, gather and analyse multi-source big data on transportation behaviours. This will improve transit, freight transportation and congestion levels throughout Europe. Read more

From 30/01/2017 to 30/01/2017
To increase the uptake of electric vehicles in European urban areas, the EU-funded WEEVIL project is developing a light three-wheeler that meets users' expectations in terms of comfort, driving experience, innovation and affordability. Read more

From 18/01/2017 to 18/01/2017
Using a range of new technologies, EU-funded researchers are on a mission to create greener ships. They plan to cut fuel use and CO2 emissions by 25%, and other emissions (sulphur oxide, nitrogen oxide, particulate matter) by 100%. Read more
Image of electric cars charging
From 17/11/2016 to 17/11/2016
Research shows that many people are put off buying an electric vehicle because of their limited operating range - the distance that they can travel before they need charging. An EU-funded project is tackling one of the functions reducing range by consuming energy: interior heating and cooling. Read more

From 17/11/2016 to 17/11/2016
The EU-funded project PROMINENT seeks to make goods transport on Europe's inland waterways more competitive compared to other modes by helping industry switch to more efficient and environmentally friendly vessels. Read more

From 17/11/2016 to 17/11/2016
EU-funded project XERIC plans to develop a climate-control system for electric vehicles that can cut energy use by half. Reducing energy use would extend the range of electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid cars, making the industry more competitive. Read more

From 19/10/2016 to 19/10/2016
An EU-funded project aims to boost the competitiveness of Europe's travel industry by developing a cutting-edge cloud services platform capable of pulling together data from millions of service providers. The platform would allow travellers to access more diverse and flexible travel services faster and more securely than is currently possible - simplifying journey planning. Read more
