  • Image of seafood in ice
    The EU-funded CERES project is using models to anticipate the impact of climate change on European fisheries and aquaculture. The assessment will feed into industry-driven solutions to secure Europe's seafood supply.
  • Image of businessman holding holographic brain
    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.
  • image of neurons
    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.
  • image of hands holding soil
    The EU-funded InnoRenew Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Slovenia will foster research on the innovative and efficient use of renewable resources in building materials.
  • Image of hands holding soil
    A new European centre of excellence for the development of advanced technologies in sustainable agriculture and food security will open in Serbia with the aim to boost economic growth in the region.
  • communication hub
    High risk, long term, multidisciplinary and collaborative frontier research, laying the foundations for radically new, next generation technologies – this is the essence of the Future & Emerging Technologies (FET) programme. But how do you communicate efficiently on such high level science projects without losing your audience along the way of science? How do you achieve the outreach you have always dreamt of?
  • image of doctors and scanners
    Every cancer follows its own complex path. An EU-funded project is developing experimental tools and a computer model to generate and test ideas on the combined impact of the body's cell and chemical processes on cancer progress. The findings should one day help researchers and SMEs find better-targeted drugs faster.
  • image of hand pressing screen
    The EU-funded GETUI project is developing ways to assess how gestures fit into the communication skill set needed for collaborative problem solving.
  • image of cyclist
    Cyclists suffer a disproportionately high share of road accident injuries and fatalities. Through a combination of detection technologies, warning systems, information display and cooperation systems aimed at reducing collisions, EU-funded researchers are planning to cut fatality figures and make cycling safer.
  • image of family have lunch outside
    Diabetes is a global health threat. Three EU-funded projects are testing community-based approaches to prevention and management of the disease in Europe, Asia and Africa.
