  • Image of woman holding apple
    Researchers at the Institute of Soil Science and Cultivation in the Polish town of Pulawy have set out to promote the bioeconomy and its benefits in the region. Their work is backed by funding from the EU's ERA Chairs initiative.
  • smart phone
    The CARRE project investigated digital technologies for empowering patients with comorbidities and cardio-renal syndrome, by providing personalised health risk information to patients and health practitioners with the help of mobile devices.
  • Image of hand touching 3d printed hand
    We know that 3D printing is set to revolutionise manufacturing. But construction? EU-funded researchers are putting the building blocks in place with 3D printing technology enabling the construction sector to manufacture concrete building materials in a more efficient and cost effective manner. The technology is being combined with more traditional techniques to offer an all-in-one solution.
  • Image of power plant
    The EU-funded SuPREME project will help to promote a conversion to renewable energy systems and resources in Poland by twinning one of the country's best energy research centre with more advanced EU centres of excellence in the field.
  • Doctor looking at an X-ray image
    The goal of the FET-Open project, Voxel is to develop a ground-breaking 3D X-ray technology which will not only reduce the adverse effects of classical x-ray technology but also increase image quality.
  • The EU-funded COURAGE project is compiling and analysing collections of cultural opposition in former socialist countries, making the collections more accessible for educational and research purposes and highlighting their importance as a testimony to anti-communist opposition in Europe.
  • weighing scales with fluctuating weight graph
    Helping people to lose weight has been very much examined. The NoHoW project however focusses on keeping the weight off in the long term. While collecting evidence about what works and what doesn't, the NoHoW researchers have developed a weight loss maintenance toolkit consisting of mobile apps, web-based tools, smart scales, activity trackers etc.
  • Image of house made of batteries with solar panels
    The production of cement and lime involves fossil fuels and produces harmful greenhouse gases. Industry could change this, if scientists can develop a technology that can use solar power for high temperature industrial processes. The EU-funded SOLPART project has built lab-scale reactors that use a solar powered process to meet this need.
  • Image of man in suit with laptop in a field
    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.
  • Image of solar panels
    The NESTER project is twinning the Cyprus Institute and several internationally–leading solar energy research institutions to strengthen solar thermal energy research in Cyprus, Europe and beyond.
