According to WHO estimates, 360 million people worldwide suffer from disabling hearing loss. Cochlear implants can help those for whom hearing aids offer little or no benefit. The EU-funded project HEAR-EU is developing ground-breaking imaging technology and surgical planning software to make the implant surgery more predictable and ultimately more successful for the individual patient.

An EU-funded project has flown a drone controlled from the ground using only a person’s brainwaves. The technology could one day make it easier to pilot larger aircraft, such as cargo jets, and result in safer airways, say the project’s researchers. Read more
A faulty component or a worn-out machine can bring an entire manufacturing process to a crashing halt. And long before it actually breaks down, it can cause costly delays or defects. An innovative system developed by EU-funded researchers can help businesses to monitor crucial equipment and keep it in peak condition. Read more
Roughly six million people in Europe suffer from epilepsy. Although treatment is widely available, 30% of patients still experience uncontrolled seizures. Hoping to change their lives for the better, the EU-funded project EpiMiRNA is looking to improve our understanding of the underlying causes of the condition, and to open up new diagnostic and therapeutic pathways focusing on the role of microRNAs.

Imagine printing with inexpensive plastic inks that detect light. Imagine using the same inkjet process to combine these substances with printable electric switches — transistors — that can transmit the collected information. You could print out entire digital imagers this way. Read more
An EU-funded project has developed a forecasting model for biotoxic algal blooms. The project aimed at providing aquaculture farmers early warnings of approaching dangerous ‘phytoplankton’ – allowing them to take effective action to keep fish and shellfish from algae-induced contamination – and protect their livelihoods.

The Converging Media and Content Unit will hold a workshop on Big Data and Media&Content on 24 September 2015. This workshop will provide an effective opportunity for European stakeholders to contribute to this topic, to discuss with key speakers and to influence the future activity in the European scenario. Please save the date. A link to web registration will be provided soon. Read more
Being able to maintain personal hygiene plays a crucial factor for independent living in old age. Loosing this ability means needing support for these activities, often resulting into a move in a nursing care home. I-SUPPORT is a three-year HORIZON 2020 European research project launched in March 2015. Its goal is to develop a robotic shower system in order to enable independent living for a long period and thus, improve the quality of life of frail citizens. Read more
