Poland does not necessarily top the list of destinations researchers consider while planning their next career move - even if it is their home. And yet, it has much to offer. A new EU-funded grant scheme will enable 90 incoming scientists to advance their work at Polish research organisations. It will also help to consolidate the country's research community. Read more
Restoring Roman cement to its former glory
From 16/06/2016 to 16/06/2016
For once, the clue is not in the name: Roman cement was not invented in Rome. But it is indeed cement, and more specifically one that was widely used in the 19th century.

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

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
