  • Innovative cloud network to simplify travel planning

    19/10/2016 - 14:56
    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.

  • Frontier research for new materials

    13/10/2016 - 11:15
    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.
  • Impressive achievements for project Harvest4D

    12/10/2016 - 18:25
    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.
  • A move to bring down costs for light electric vehicles

    06/10/2016 - 17:45
    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.

  • What your saliva tells you about your heart health

    03/10/2016 - 18:53
    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.

  • Overview of the EU funded Centres of Excellence for computing applications

    26/09/2016 - 18:03
    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.
  • A study in gesture interactions

    22/09/2016 - 17:10
    The EU-funded GETUI project is developing ways to assess how gestures fit into the communication skill set needed for collaborative problem solving.

  • Savage warfare: examining the past

    20/09/2016 - 15:49
    In war, there are rules - but sometimes countries decide that they don't apply. Colonial campaigns, for example, were often seen as exceptions. EU-funded research is studying several fought over a century ago. Ancient history? Hardly. Many aspects of this troubled past remain relevant to current debates as the world attempts to tackle terrorism.
  • Electronic innovations open door to personal mobility for all

    19/09/2016 - 18:28
    By redesigning the car interior and harnessing the latest electronic technologies, EU-funded scientists are designing and developing an affordable and user-friendly electric vehicle specifically for Europe's ageing population. A prototype should be ready in 2018.

  • A closer look at dendritic cells and their links to cancer

    16/09/2016 - 14:05
    Dendritic cells are a type of white blood cell. By studying them, an EU-funded project aims to provide wider insights into the role of the immune system in the development of cancer. The insights provided by the project could eventually help researchers develop new ways to fight a range of cancers - helping to save lives.
