  • Image of green car made of leaves
    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.
  • Life happens inside your four walls, right? But what if those walls are actually alive themselves? The vision of FET Open project LIAR is to turn our habitats into sustainable 'living' buildings.
  • Image of hand holding phone using apps with thumb
    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.
  • Picture of electric vehicle sign on ground
    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.
  • Picture of stethoscope
    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.
  • Hand pressing word "solution"
    The EU-funded GETUI project is developing ways to assess how gestures fit into the communication skill set needed for collaborative problem solving.
