    On 3 May, the European Commission organises in Brussels the European Researchers' Night Coordinators Day with the overall aim to gather the European Researchers' Night coordinators in a one-day event in Brussels.
  • The EU-funded COURAGE project is compiling and analysing collections of cultural opposition in former socialist countries, making the collections more accessible for educational and research purposes and highlighting their importance as a testimony to anti-communist opposition in Europe.
  • The science dissemination initiative called European Researchers' Night within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions was again a success in its last version in September 2016. This Europe wide public and open event aims to raise awareness about research, dispel stereotypes about researchers and entice young people to take up a research career in the future.
  • ExpoScience 2017
    Tour & Taxi, Brussels, Belgium
    The MSCA team jointly with several MSCA fellows will participate in the ExpoScience 2017 at Tour & Taxi, Brussels (Belgium).
  • EESC, rue Belliard 99, 1040 Brussels, Belgium
    As part of the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020 the EU Research and Innovation Programme, a public stakeholder consultation was launched on 20 October 2016 and closed on 15 January 2017. The results of around 3500 responses and about 300 position papers will be presented at an event organised in cooperation with the European Economic and Social Committee on 28 April.
  • The world's first zero-emissions electric plane, developed by Lilium, a start-up supported by EIT Climate-KIC, has taken to the skies. Lilium's aim is to design the world’s fastest and highest-range commercially available electric aircraft. The two-seater light aircraft is made of carbon fibre, has 36 jet engines powered by several thousand Lithium-Ion batteries, consumes half the energy of today’s most efficient electric cars and even has a parachute as the ultimate safety back-up.
  • weighing scales with fluctuating weight graph
    Helping people to lose weight has been very much examined. The NoHoW project however focusses on keeping the weight off in the long term. While collecting evidence about what works and what doesn't, the NoHoW researchers have developed a weight loss maintenance toolkit consisting of mobile apps, web-based tools, smart scales, activity trackers etc.
  • Image of house made of batteries with solar panels
    The production of cement and lime involves fossil fuels and produces harmful greenhouse gases. Industry could change this, if scientists can develop a technology that can use solar power for high temperature industrial processes. The EU-funded SOLPART project has built lab-scale reactors that use a solar powered process to meet this need.
  • Image of man in suit with laptop in a field
    Text and data mining (TDM) has huge potential research and innovation, but the inhibitive European regulatory framework means that EU uptake remains low. The FutureTDM project will first identify these barriers, and then seek to dismantle them.
  • Image of solar panels
    The NESTER project is twinning the Cyprus Institute and several internationally–leading solar energy research institutions to strengthen solar thermal energy research in Cyprus, Europe and beyond.
