  • Safer roads for cyclists

    21/02/2017
    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.

  • Integrating better care for older people

    17/02/2017
    EU-funded project SUSTAIN aims to improve care services for the elderly by integrating the needs and wishes of patients. Such integrated, patient-centred care will promote better services and more choice for older people.

  • From wings to walls: EU funded project turns on a new era in heating

    16/02/2017
    Imagine wind turbine or aircraft wings that de-ice themselves in extreme conditions or floors and walls with invisible, built-in heating. Or even clothes that warm you up on the coldest of days.

  • Sharing maritime space to unlock growth in the blue economy

    15/02/2017
    From mussel farming to wind farms, the EU-funded MARIBE project showed how various marine projects could cut costs and benefit from each other by linking up. Optimising the use of our oceans and seas would also stimulate growth in the blue economy.

    On 27 January 2016, key representatives of the Animal health community joined in Brussels to launch the International Research Consortium (IRC) on Animal Health. Less than one year later, thanks to Horizon 2020 funding, a new Scientific Secretariat for this IRC is up and running.
  • Developing new ways to monitor the progress of bone grafts

    14/02/2017
    VIVOIMAG aims to develop a new contrast agent to improve visibility and enable the real-time evaluation of bone grafts using existing scanning and imaging techniques. Such innovation could, in the future, have a substantial impact on the medical field of tissue regeneration.
  • Creating the light urban vehicles of the future

    13/02/2017
    Future urban mobility will require more space for people and environmentally friendly vehicles, and less space for cars. L-category vehicles such as motorbikes and mopeds could be part of the solution, but potential users are put off by high prices.

  • Digital data solutions to improve transport mobility

    10/02/2017
    In a bid to achieve problem-free and proactive mobility solutions for transport, the EU-funded OPTIMUM project is developing IT systems to monitor, gather and analyse multi-source big data on transportation behaviours. This will improve transit, freight transportation and congestion levels throughout Europe.

  • Making dreams come true: EU scientists turn tiny ideas into real materials

    09/02/2017
    Technology relies on new ideas. And in recent decades, there has been an explosion of new ideas about materials just a fraction of the size of a human hair. Nanomaterials - materials on the scale of nanometres - promise to improve and even revolutionise products from electricity cables to personal electronics to solar panels.
