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?
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.
A new study points to substantial successes in each of the EIT's key areas.
The study, 'EIT: Our Impact from 2010 - 2016', analysed the global and European socio-economic impact of the EIT and its Innovation Communities between 2010 and 2016. With existing reviews mostly focusing on results and efficiency, the study sets out to look beyond those results and structure the achievements of the EIT Community in terms of impact.
Today, the EIT has published the Framework of Guidance for the EIT’s 2018 Call for Proposals.
To further enhance its impact and to incentivise the innovations needed to meet societal challenges, we’re continuing to expand our activities in 2018 by launching a call for two new Knowledge and Innovation Communities:
- EIT Manufacturing: strengthening and increasing the competitiveness of Europe’s manufacturing industry
- EIT Urban Mobility: smart, green and integrated urban transport
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.
EGVIA and ERTRAC, supported by the European Commission, are organising this European-wide conference to showcase the results of selected H2020 funded projects on road transport related areas.
Various technological challenges will be covered in order to highlight the contribution of ongoing EU-funded research projects to meet EU policy goals.
The European Commission today launched a Horizon Prize in Social Innovation to improve the mobility of older people.
The prize has a budget of €2 million and is funded under Horizon 2020, the EU's research and innovation programme. One prize of €1 million and four runner-up prizes of €250,000 each will be awarded to the most innovative mobility solutions that enable older citizens to continue to fully participate in social activities, maintain their autonomy and age healthily.
