human brain enclosed by rays
measuring consciousness
From 01/12/2016 to 01/12/2016
What is consciousness? Can it be measured? FET-Open project LUMINOUS tries to find answers to fundamental human questions. Read more
disc with arrows pointing in different directions
numerical simulation of an object covered with spins (arrows) pointing in every possible direction
From 25/11/2016 to 25/11/2016
FET-Open project MAGicSky is neither about magic, nor about looking at the stars. Its very down-to-earth objective is to significantly improve information storage capacity and speed of information processing. In other words, MAGicSky research aims at developing extremely small and powerful memory elements Read more

From 17/11/2016 to 17/11/2016
Research shows that many people are put off buying an electric vehicle because of their limited operating range - the distance that they can travel before they need charging. An EU-funded project is tackling one of the functions reducing range by consuming energy: interior heating and cooling. Read more

From 17/11/2016 to 17/11/2016
The EU-funded project PROMINENT seeks to make goods transport on Europe's inland waterways more competitive compared to other modes by helping industry switch to more efficient and environmentally friendly vessels. Read more

From 17/11/2016 to 17/11/2016
Nanotechnology harnesses the power of the very small - just a fraction of the size of a human hair and too tiny to see with the naked eye - to make more effective devices, materials and medicines. Now researchers behind the SKHINCAPS project funded by the European Union want to use nanotechnologies to make smart clothing and cosmetics. Read more

From 17/11/2016 to 17/11/2016
Implantation of a prosthesis involves complex surgery conducted in a sterile environment. Still, sometimes implants get infected with dangerous bacteria. The consequences can be very serious. Why does this happen and what can be done to prevent it? Read more

Many areas worldwide struggle with high levels of arsenic in the water supply. Scientists from Argentina - where several regions are affected - are collaborating with European colleagues to find solutions in the context of an EU-funded project. Together, they intend to develop a low-cost system to produce safe drinking water for people and livestock. Read more

From 17/11/2016 to 17/11/2016
EU-funded project XERIC plans to develop a climate-control system for electric vehicles that can cut energy use by half. Reducing energy use would extend the range of electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid cars, making the industry more competitive. Read more
From 14/11/2016 to 14/11/2016
QuantERA is a new Cofund Action in Quantum Technologies. With a budget of over 37 million €, including co-funding from the European Commission, QuantERA will support international research projects in the field of Quantum Technologies. Read more
From 10/11/2016 to 10/11/2016
Life happens inside your four walls, right? But what if those walls are actually alive themselves? The vision of FET Open project LIAR is to turn our habitats into sustainable 'living' buildings. Read more
