An EU-funded project developed dry misting systems for fruits and vegetables in transport, storage and supermarket displays that can prolong their shelf life, helping in the fight against food waste. [read more]
A new EU-funded automated approach for producing customised components is set for integration into manufacturing production lines. The process makes the technique of powder metallurgy faster and more energy efficient, boosting industrial competitiveness. [read more]
If railways could ensure maintenance didn't disrupt rail services, trains could be the main arteries of Europe's transportation infrastructure. The EU-funded OPTIRAIL project has developed a new framework to better maintain railways - it could even unify rail networks across Europe, making the continent a more competitive global force.

EU-funded researchers are working on novel, more effective contrast agents - the substances that make the contrast between, for example, muscle and bone, in MRI scans. This new level of detail will improve diagnostics and help ensure people receive the right treatment. [read more]
EU-funded researchers have developed a carbon with tiny pores that could prevent infection of livers by intestinal bacteria - a common complication in chronic liver disease. The material could improve patients' quality of life and chances of survival, while reducing the use of antibiotics in managing the disease. [read more]
Young researchers are developing next-generation manufacturing processes for medicines and chemicals in an EU-funded network. Their innovative and green solutions aim to boost industrial competitiveness. [read more]
Does our increasing reliance on smartphones make data more vulnerable? An EU-funded project's recommendations on cybersecurity aim to inform policymakers on the best approaches to protect personal data and improve trust in mobile applications. [read more]
EU-funded researchers studied genomic changes in water fleas for signs of evolutionary adaptation linked to human activities, such as phosphorous contamination in lakes. The results shed light on how species respond to environmental changes, and could feed into measures to protect biodiversity and ecosystems. [read more]
A group of young researchers spent the past couple of years with their heads in the clouds... to better understand aerosol cloud interactions and how they can help predict climate change. The project also led to technological advances in remote-sensing instrumentation and picked up the pace for technological transfer from research to industry. [read more]
Through its 2012 Bioeconomy Strategy, Europe has made important headway towards becoming a more innovative, resource efficient society. The strategy promotes substitution of fossil based products, addresses sustainable supply of bioresources and food security in view of climate change and global population increase. However, it is now time to step up a gear. [read more]
