  • Europe must step up investment in research and innovation in order to maximise impact, while also further refining the success story that is Horizon 2020, the EU research and innovation programme. This is one of the key messages from the Communication on the Horizon 2020 interim evaluation that the European Commission presented today. It also calls for a mission-oriented approach, focusing on cracking specific challenges, as a way of boosting the impact of the programme. Other key messages inclu
  • training map how to succeed
    A series of workshops offer help to FET Projects to prepare to launch innovative solutions to the market with the Lean Startup approach to product development.
  • protein expression
    A FET-Open project works on new high-throughput microscopy technique, which will allow for visualisation of DNA, mRNA and proteins in living cells.
  • Lungs' image
    Asthma has become a major health and economic burden in Europe affecting 30 million Europeans and one quarter of European children. Current therapies are limited to temporary improvements of the conditions of asthmatic patients but none tackle the underlying causes of the disease. There is no cure for asthma and so far no developments are recorded for new cures but what if this complex disease requires out-of-the box thinking?
  • logo of the campaign with a map of Europe
    The European Commission is conducting a mapping of the existing centres of expertise in the field of cybersecurity. The results of this mapping will be translated into a "Cybersecurity Atlas" that will be made publicly available. This Atlas aims to become a valuable tool and a reference for the cybersecurity community to look for potential partners and pool resources. Are you a center of excellence in the field of cybersecurity? Then register before 15 February 2018.
  • The European Commission has launched the first of six European Innovation Council (EIC) Horizon Prizes, on Affordable High-Tech for Humanitarian Aid. EIC Horizon Prizes are part of the European Innovation Council pilot run under Horizon 2020, the EU's Research and Innovation Framework Programme.
  • The European Commission has launched a new online presentation of implementation data of Horizon 2020, the EU's research and innovation programme. The Horizon 2020 Dashboard is user-friendly but at the same time offers powerful new analytical functions that will inform programme reporting, impact analysis, feedback to policy-making as well as decisions on future priorities.
  • cellular image
    A fundamentally new concept for remote control of cellular functions by means of magnetic manipulation for treatment of neurodegenerative disorders will be introduced by the FET-Open project MAGNEURON.
  • Spanning seven years (2014 - 2020) and with a budget of €77 billion, Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU research and innovation funding programme ever. It is implemented via multi-annual work programmes.
  • chip-sized optical microscope
    ChipScope aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries, under the leadership of the University of Barcelona, will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
