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.
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.
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.
FET Open project Microflusa wants to revolutionize the fabrication of colloidal materials. While present production of innovative colloidal materials remains time consuming and limited to small scale, Microflusa proposes novel ways to break this bottleneck.
The EU-funded project Harvest4D will have a significant impact, not only scientifically, but also practically, as it solves many fundamental problems related to the capture, reconstruction, and visualization of 3D data to create 4D models.
The EU-funded project RESOLVE is developing technologies for electric-powered light four wheelers that extend range and reduce cost. This could tempt more car drivers to make the switch to these smaller, less polluting alternatives for daily urban commutes.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Early detection can prevent heart failure and other complications, but screening is currently time consuming. EU-funded researchers are looking to change this with a cost-effective tool capable of detecting a patient’s risk of heart failure from their saliva.
Nine Centres of Excellence (CoEs) for computing applications are now running. They will help strengthen Europe's existing leadership in HPC (high-performance computing) applications and cover important areas like renewable energy, materials modelling and design, molecular and atomic modelling, climate change, Global System science, and bio-molecular research, and tools to improve HPC applications performance.
