  • 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.

    The EU-funded SISSDEN project will create, deploy and operate a network of sensors to detect, collect and share information about potential threats to cyber security and how to tighten computer defences accordingly.
  • Image of fisherman on boat
    The EU-funded ClimeFish project will co-create projections of fish production and distribution together with industry. The project will help ensure that future increases in seafood production occur in areas and for species where there is potential for sustainable growth.
  • State aid support schemes for RDI in the EU's international competitors in the fields of Science, Research and Innovation
    This study evaluates and assesses the appropriateness and effectiveness of the regulatory framework for State aid to RDI in the European Union. It compares the competitiveness of RDI in the EU with that of certain competitor third countries to recommend improvements to the Community regulatory framework.
  • Today, the European Commission, together with 14 partners from national and regional authorities, universities, knowledge centres, innovators and end-users, takes concrete steps to address regulatory barriers to innovation by signing the first Innovation Deal on "Sustainable Waste Water Treatment Combining Anaerobic Membrane Technology (AnMbR) and Water Reuse".
  • Image of scientist with test tubes
    Scientists are delving into the core machinery of cellular life, in search of the mechanisms driving bacterial evolution and adaptation. Their findings promise biosynthetic factories able to convert biomass into fuels and valuable chemicals.
  • 184 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from 28 countries have been selected for funding in the latest round of the Horizon 2020 SME Instrument.
  • Image of seafood in ice
    The EU-funded CERES project is using models to anticipate the impact of climate change on European fisheries and aquaculture. The assessment will feed into industry-driven solutions to secure Europe's seafood supply.
  • The European Commission is fully committed to a fast deployment of self-driving technologies in Europe. It confirmed its support at the 1st European Conference on Connected and Automated Driving (CAD), in Brussels on 3 and 4 April 2017.
  • Image of businessman holding holographic brain
    No glasses, no headset, no smartphone - it is possible to produce 3D images that observers can view without cumbersome props. Base these displays on input from medical imaging devices and you could have the makings of a powerful new way to view patient scans. Holography holds the key, says an innovative SME that is developing this technology with EU support.
