The LiRichFCC project will explore an entirely new class of materials for electrochemical energy storage termed “Li-rich FCC” comprising a very high concentration of lithium in a cubic dense packed structure (FCC).
An EU-funded project is investigating protein-rich crops in Europe as attractive
alternatives to meat - a means to reduce the environmental impact of livestock on the
planet and provide farmers with a new source of income.
An EU-funded study is exploring agricultural practices and EU policies related to drinking water quality and the use of pesticides and nitrogen. Results will inform an integrated EU response to a major environmental and health challenge.
With a budget of almost €5 Million, the EU-funded C3-Cloud project will establish an ICT infrastructure facilitating a collaborative care and cure cloud to enable continuous coordination of patient-centred care activities by a multidisciplinary care team or informal care givers.
The European funded City4Age project aims to make cities more age-friendly. It will create innovative ICT tools and services for early detection of risks related to frailty and of Mild Cognitive Impairments (MCI). The services will be tested in several European cities, as well as in Singapore.
ORCHID will facilitate dialogue towards accelerating the development of prototypes of organs-on-chips (validated cell systems that mimic diseased or healthy human tissue), and the implementation of this technology by a broad group of potential users in science, health care and industry.
A new European Commission study analyses the impact on society of EU-funded Research and Innovation in technology for active and healthy ageing. Which of the projects have had the most influence in Europe over the last 11 years?
Examples of the highly ambitious targets ahead of the successful FET-Open proposals include a super-resolution microscope in a microfluidic chip smaller than a coin, a novel GPS-free positioning technology, the non-invasive imaging of biochemical processes in the human body, and building a 3D muscle on a chip.
