  • New booklet shows how EU research and innovation funding impacts your daily life

    06/02/2018
    The European Commission has published a new booklet showing a few examples where EU support for research and innovation is making a real difference in the lives of citizens and society as a whole. It is aimed at all age groups so everyone can understand the good work EU funding can do.
  • Arctic station network boosts climate change research

    05/04/2016
    EU-funded project INTERACT has built a network of Arctic research stations, allowing them to coordinate and share resources more efficiently. The network aims to boost the scope and quantity of research on the Arctic, which serves as a bellwether of global changes to climate, biodiversity and land use.
  • Democratising and enhancing research with citizen scientists

    04/11/2015
    An EU-funded consortium is bridging the gap between science and the general public, fostering real and virtual environments in which researchers and citizens collaborate on cutting-edge initiatives for the benefit of both science and society.
  • African e-science on the fast track

    06/08/2015
    Africa’s ICT infrastructures are fast evolving, creating exciting opportunities for researchers keen to join the global e-science community. Dedicated European-African initiatives are exploring the potential and engaging with stakeholders to raise awareness of the possibilities. An EU-funded project has assisted them in this task.
  • A giant leap for gamma ray astronomy

    05/08/2015
    The ability to observe very high energy gamma radiation has opened a new window on the universe, and researchers around the world are keen to seize the new opportunities it offers. As part of an EU-funded project, they have created an international alliance to move beyond current experimental instruments towards a major telescope array for this new type of observation.
  • Sharing infrastructure for better science: Africa and the EU

    05/08/2015
    Research infrastructures provide the tools scientists need to understand the world and, in some cases, make it a better place. But these resources – from telescopes to biobanks, and from museum archives to wave energy test sites – cost more than most countries can afford. The EU-funded PAERIP project has started the ball rolling for new partnerships to share resources between Europe and Africa
  • Uniting experts in accelerator technology

    24/11/2014
    Contact
    Physicists use particle accelerators to study the nature of matter and energy. These large machines guide charged particles through a magnetic field in a hollow evacuated tube and accelerate them by an electric field.
  • Pioneering research to promote sustainable forestry

    13/10/2014
    Contact
    The demand for wood products and services is increasing worldwide due to economic and climate policy driving forces. It is therefore imperative for experts in forestry research to develop a common framework which could facilitate interactions between different areas of expertise and the exchange of scientific knowledge.
  • EU research helps fish farmers become more competitive

    09/10/2014
    Contact
    Aquaculture holds the promise of reducing the need to catch wild fish. Global demand for fish is increasing, putting many species in danger from overfishing. Fish farming, or aquaculture, is taking some of the pressure off these stocks – half of the fish consumed globally is now produced at fish farms.
  • Biospecimens beyond borders

    01/07/2014
    Access to biological resources such as cells and tissue samples is the lifeblood of biomedical research. Biobanks and biomolecular resource centres collect, store and distribute this material, the related data and powerful analytical tools, but none of them can single-handedly meet the growing, diverse needs of Europe’s research community. EU funding has enabled major repositories to link up and share these resources.
