  • Image of scuba divers
    What if the secret of youth lies under the sea? Marine biodiversity is rich in sources for medicine and cosmetic science, as Spanish researchers are discovering on the Mediterranean coast.
  • Image of yellow hard hat
    JPI Urban Europe will bring together urban development research and social innovation projects under a single transnational call for projects, ENSUF, in a bid to foster growth, job creation, innovation and sustainability across European cities. Nearly 50 proposals have been received.
  • Image of teenagers talking
    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.
  • human brain enclosed by rays
    What is consciousness? Can it be measured? FET-Open project LUMINOUS tries to find answers to fundamental human questions.
  • disc with arrows pointing in different directions
    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
  • Image of electric cars charging
    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.
  • Image of barge on a canal
    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.
  • Image of woman's shoulder and ladybird
    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.
  • Image of test tubes with fluid
    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?
  • 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.
