  • Anticipating the impact of climate change on Europe's seafood

    06/04/2017 - 02:00
    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.

  • Connecting the dots for medical holography

    05/04/2017 - 02:00
    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.

  • Nearer to the neuron

    30/03/2017 - 02:00
    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.

  • Is your FET research taking EFFECT?

    24/03/2017 - 17:08
    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?

  • Tools for modelling and predicting cancer progress

    24/02/2017 - 12:13
    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.

  • A study in gesture interactions

    24/02/2017 - 12:07
    The EU-funded GETUI project is developing ways to assess how gestures fit into the communication skill set needed for collaborative problem solving.

  • SELFback: mHealth for low back pain

    22/02/2017 - 01:00
    The SELFback project is developing new mHealth technology to self-manage low back pain. Project Coordinator Paul Jarle Mork: "We anticipate that those who use the SELFback system will have at least a 20% reduction in pain related disability".

  • Safer roads for cyclists

    21/02/2017 - 01:00
    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.
