Although social media has infiltrated our daily lives and become a powerful tool it is not always put to good use. EU-funded research is looking at how the Islamic State group has used social media to promote the terrorist agenda and attract followers
An EU-funded project has achieved some of the highest efficiencies ever recorded for a solar module, paving the way for broader commercial deployment of concentrator photovoltaic systems to help drive Europe's transition to renewable energy.
The widespread adoption of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revolutionised clinical medicine, and the revolution has not stopped. Scientists in an EU-funded project are exploring ways to make MRIs even more effective - aiming to help patients get the best possible tr
Pancreatic cancer is a leading cause of cancer-related death. Technology from an EU-funded project could guide surgery to remove pancreatic tumours and target post-operative radiotherapy to cancerous
An EU-funded project is using slime mould to produce accessible sensing devices with a wide range of applications, including environmental monitoring and health - helping European industry become more competitive in the growing biosensor device market. The devices can also be used for citizen science applications.
We are all made of stardust! But what is cosmic dust and how is it made? An EU-funded project is recreating cosmic dust by simulating interstellar conditions in the laboratory and developing innovative processes that could lead to benefits for communication, transport and nanotechnology - boosting industry's competitiveness.
How can the European Union can support the growing field of digital social innovation (DSI), which offers huge potential to harness collaborative and open technologies to tackle some of Europe's biggest challenges? This is the question at the heart of this high-level workshop. Organise by the Horizon 2020-funded DSI4EU project, this workshop will bring together senior officials from EU institutions, foundations, think tanks, civil society and DSI practitioners. It will showcase the potential of DSI in priority areas for the European Commission, discuss and refine ideas for future policy agendas, explore how we can bring the “digital” into social innovation and use DSI to help shape more responsible technology, and provide ample opportunity for networking.
The Week of Innovative Regions in Europe (WIRE) brings together regional, national and European innovation experts and stakeholders, including public organisations, policymakers, research communities, enterprises and non-governmental organisations to exchange views on the role of research and innovation in solving societal challenges. This annual conference is always hosted in a region chosen by the EU Member State providing the Presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU). WIRE is financed under the Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation part of Horizon 2020, the EU’s research and innovation programme.
The Marie Skłodowska - Curie European Training Networks AEGIS and TASPPI are pleased to announce the common organized international conference New Frontiers in Structure-Based Drug Discovery, Sep 23-25, 2019 at Convitto della Calza in Florence, Italy. Attracting a high-level audience of researchers, the conference will provide a stimulating platform to discuss with academic experts and scientists from biotech and pharmaceutical industries. Topics include innovative screens on protein-protein interactions, novel targets and target validation, structure-based drug discovery, computational approaches and more. The conference will provide a valuable platform to discuss the challenges and opportunities of modern drug discovery in academia and industry.
Coronary heart disease is a leading cause of death worldwide, but identifying those at high risk remains difficult. EU-funded research has helped identify new biomarkers that will improve diagnosis and lead to new and better treatment options.
