From 18/04/2017 to 18/04/2017
Text and data mining (TDM) has huge potential research and innovation, but the inhibitive European regulatory framework means that EU uptake remains low. The FutureTDM project will first identify these barriers, and then seek to dismantle them. Read more

From 05/04/2017 to 05/04/2017
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. Read more

From 30/03/2017 to 30/03/2017
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. Read more
