Image of sound waves spelling 'voice'
From 22/12/2016 to 22/12/2016
The EU-funded OCTAVE project is developing an innovative voice verification system combined with user authentication as a cloud service that could replace the use of passwords for online security. Read more

From 22/12/2016 to 22/12/2016
Drugs derived from biological sources play a major role in modern healthcare, but producing them cost-effectively to keep up with rising demand is a major challenge for the pharmaceutical industry. EU-funded researchers are developing more efficient biopharmaceutical manufacturing processes that should expand patients' access to these highly effective therapies. Read more

From 22/12/2016 to 22/12/2016
How do young people participate in decisions that concern them and their involvement at the local level? There are many ways they get involved, not all of which are recognised in formal ways. A new EU-funded project is exploring how the rising generation engages with public debate. Read more
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
Image of electric cars charging
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
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
