    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.

    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.

    An EU-funded project aims to boost the competitiveness of Europe's travel industry by developing a cutting-edge cloud services platform capable of pulling together data from millions of service providers. The platform would allow travellers to access more diverse and flexible travel services faster and more securely than is currently possible - simplifying journey planning.
