    No glasses, no headset, no smartphone - it is possible to produce 3D images that observers can view without cumbersome props. Base these displays on input from medical imaging devices and you could have the makings of a powerful new way to view patient scans. Holography holds the key, says an innovative SME that is developing this technology with EU support.

    Language, reasoning and learning are abilities powered by the neocortex, the folded grey matter on the outside of the brain. But how does its neuronal circuitry actually handle information? Using the example of syntax processing, new EU-funded research is exploring the physiological underpinnings of human cognition.

    24/02/2017
    Every cancer follows its own complex path. An EU-funded project is developing experimental tools and a computer model to generate and test ideas on the combined impact of the body's cell and chemical processes on cancer progress. The findings should one day help researchers and SMEs find better-targeted drugs faster.

    Diabetes is a global health threat. Three EU-funded projects are testing community-based approaches to prevention and management of the disease in Europe, Asia and Africa.

    17/02/2017
    EU-funded project SUSTAIN aims to improve care services for the elderly by integrating the needs and wishes of patients. Such integrated, patient-centred care will promote better services and more choice for older people.
  • 14/02/2017
    VIVOIMAG aims to develop a new contrast agent to improve visibility and enable the real-time evaluation of bone grafts using existing scanning and imaging techniques. Such innovation could, in the future, have a substantial impact on the medical field of tissue regeneration.

    07/02/2017
    The EU-funded RAMCIP project is developing a novel domestic service robot to assist the elderly, Alzheimer's patients and people suffering mild cognitive impairments with daily activities. The robot will be able to decide autonomously when and how to intervene to assist its user.
