  • Savage warfare: examining the past

    In war, there are rules - but sometimes countries decide that they don't apply. Colonial campaigns, for example, were often seen as exceptions. EU-funded research is studying several fought over a century ago. Ancient history? Hardly. Many aspects of this troubled past remain relevant to current debates as the world attempts to tackle terrorism.
  • Electronic innovations open door to personal mobility for all

    By redesigning the car interior and harnessing the latest electronic technologies, EU-funded scientists are designing and developing an affordable and user-friendly electric vehicle specifically for Europe's ageing population. A prototype should be ready in 2018.

  • A closer look at dendritic cells and their links to cancer

    Dendritic cells are a type of white blood cell. By studying them, an EU-funded project aims to provide wider insights into the role of the immune system in the development of cancer. The insights provided by the project could eventually help researchers develop new ways to fight a range of cancers - helping to save lives.

  • Collaborative, cost-effective approach to fuel cell manufacturing

    Efforts to establish a robust hydrogen-based transport sector in Europe must be underpinned by an equally healthy manufacturing industry for essential hydrogen-powered vehicle components.
  • Harnessing the full power of renewable energy with hydrogen

    Hydrogen has the highest mass energy density of any fuel, making it an extremely effective medium for energy storage and distribution. As Europe deploys more renewable capacity, from vast wind farms to roof-top solar arrays, hydrogen is set to be an essential integrator, harnessing excess power generation, balancing intermittent supply and demand, and ultimately helping support a clean, efficient and sustainable energy system.
  • Cleaner urban transport with hydrogen buses

    Trials in cities around the world have demonstrated that fuel-cell passenger buses can cut emissions and noise pollution while providing good quality public transport. New EU-funded projects could double Europe’s fleet of hydrogen buses – reducing vehicle and infrastructure costs per bus to boost take-up of the technology.
  • Hydrogen drives Europe towards emissions-free transport

    A clean revolution is quietly taking place on Europe’s roads. Hydrogen fuel cells are powering fleets of public buses and refuelling stations are being deployed. Building on the results of several pilot projects, uptake of the technology is accelerating rapidly, putting hydrogen fuel cells in a position to underpin zero-emissions transport Europe-wide.
  • Promoting fusion-powered innovation

    Nuclear fusion could be the perfect solution to the world's energy problems - but first, we have to work out how to produce fusion power cost-effectively. Research is getting closer, and the advances it is delivering could also be useful in other areas. An EU-funded project has highlighted the potential of technology transfers to industry.
  • Doctors use video to save lives

    Remote diagnosis systems such as the one developed by the DRIVEN project can enhance responsiveness in emergency and disaster incidents, providing a significant time-advantage within that critical hour following an incident.
  • Towards new quality sports broadcast

    Imagine your favourite football team entering a stadium. An army of wireless cameras is following the players to give you the best possible view - of the whole pitch, of the chanting crowd, of each footballer, from the tip of his head to the grass blades he treads with his cleats. Thanks to Prof. Leif Oxenløwe's research, this kind of wireless ultra-high definition television broadcasting can one day become a reality.
