Research & Innovation performance and Horizon 2020 country participation for Slovakia

Country profile and featured projects for Slovakia

The European Semester, the Commission's yearly cycle of economic policy coordination, supports Member States' structural reforms in different policy areas to promote jobs, growth and investment. Research and innovation play a key role in this context. That is why the Commission gives recommendations to and closely work with the Member States to increase the performance of their national research and innovation systems.

A new standard for citizen participation in policy

Group of people shows thumbs up sign O.K
We all have a view on how we want society to be. And we all live in a world that is a result of policies adopted. An EU-funded project is making it possible for European citizens to put the future they want on the research agenda.

Creating high-value chemicals from waste

EU-funded researchers have developed new bio-processes to create high-value chemicals from the waste resulting from bio-diesel production. A true addition to the circular economy, their achievements promise a better and greener chemical industry.

Cultural heritage goes digital - and 3D

An EU-funded training network used advanced imaging techniques to scan and reconstruct ancient artefacts and monuments in digital form. This opens many opportunities for conservationists, researchers and museums - in both preserving Europe's cultural heritage and educating people.

Ensuring Europe's nuclear fuel supply

Energy security is getting a boost from EU-funded research on an alternative, European supply of the fuel assemblies used in Russian-made nuclear reactors.

Novel computational models to predict and prevent the next financial crisis

EU-funded researchers have developed novel mathematical models and tools to better prepare financial markets for the unexpected, addressing many of the shortfalls of classical modelling approaches that dramatically failed to predict the 2008 financial crisis.

Protecting archaeological heritage in Eastern Europe

An EU-funded project has helped expand the practice of 'preventive archaeology' in Eastern Europe, contributing to the preservation of important heritage sites.

Taking down terrorist networks

The risks posed to Europe by organised crime and terrorist networks go beyond security. Additional impacts range from tax revenue to social harmony. While many different organisations are involved in awareness-raising, prevention, threat identification and intervention, strategies would be more effective if grounded in greater understanding of the phenomena. EU-funded researchers are now on the case.

Working across borders for better disaster management

When disaster strikes, seamless coordination among emergency services is essential. But how can services work together and effectively share potentially life-saving information across borders? Four EU-funded projects have developed techniques to enable emergency workers to work better together and coordinate their responses.
