Developing new anti-cancer treatments is expensive, and national, public funding organisations across Europe dedicate substantial resources to this task. Linking their research programmes helps to ensure these funds are used to best effect. Transcan is now continuing as the Transcan-2 network, fostering long-term transnational synergy. Read more
From 13/06/2016 to 13/06/2016
EU-funded researchers have developed and patented tools to make photovoltaic generation more reliable, cost-effective and easier to integrate into the grid, providing a boost to solar power SMEs and helping to make sustainable energy more attractive to businesses and end users. Commercial spin-offs are marketing the results in Europe and beyond. Read more
From 13/06/2016 to 13/06/2016
Landslides can now be identified, mapped and characterised using optical images from satellites, following an EU-funded project that has also made it possible to predict such events and to simulate their effects on transport links. Read more

We hear about bombings and explosions all too often. To find out what really happened at a blast site, forensic experts need state-of-the-art technology. An EU-funded project looked at different scenarios to develop novel tools for the analysis of evidence in the field. Two are about to be commercialised. Read more

A promising stem cell treatment for diabetic kidney disease will be assessed in a clinical trial run by the EU-funded project NEPHSTROM. The trial is one of a series of steps to determine whether the treatment is effective and safe for patients with this life-threatening condition. Read more
From 03/06/2016 to 03/06/2016
By comparing urban dynamics in Lebanon, Israel and Palestine, this ambitious European-funded research project mapped inter-ethnic relations in contested cities throughout the Eastern Mediterranean. Its findings are intended to help policymakers understand the situation and could empower them to implement change. Read more

Many everyday products contain petrochemicals derived from oil or natural gas. This comes at a price in terms of environmental impact and global warming. The EU-funded MORE project has developed systems that help to improve resource efficiency in chemical processing plants, and they are already saving energy and costs in several plants. Read more
From 03/06/2016 to 03/06/2016
EU-funded researchers are pioneering innovative new robotic container management technology in order to achieve impressive cost and space efficiencies, and to help European ports remain internationally competitive. Read more
From 01/06/2016 to 01/06/2016
FET-Open project nuClock took a giant leap to more precise time measurement by observing the Thorium-229 nucleus isomer state for the first time. Read more
