1. F4E Highlights 2014

A new publication reporting on the facts, figures and our main achievements. [read more]

2. Flocking drones, swarming pigeons

Collective motion is one of the most spectacular forms of collective behaviour. To better understand its main patterns, Prof. Tamás Vicsek and his team recorded tracks of pigeons, using miniature GPS-devices that were attached to the birds. It appeared that pigeons flying in a flock demonstrate a delicate collective decision making process. The team discovered a well-defined hierarchy among flock members, and the average spacial position of a pigeon within the flock strongly correlated with its place in this hierarchy. [read more]

3. Opening a gateway to industrial solutions

Prof. Coleman first demonstrated how to create nanomaterials in this way by producing graphene – one atom thick monolayers of carbon with unique electronic properties. He showed that subjecting bulk graphite to sonic energy while suspended in a liquid causes carbon monolayers to ‘exfoliate’ from the graphite. This produces a liquid dispersion of graphene monolayer flakes. In 2010, he received an ERC Starting Grant to expand his award-winning research and demonstrate its wider potential. [read more]

4. Research Headlines - An inside look at public sector reform across Europe

How have reforms to public administration across Europe affected the delivery of services? An EU-funded project led to one of the largest surveys ever of top civil servants in 20 European countries on public sector reforms. The survey indicates that changes have been patchy. The project's recommendations to policymakers aim to make future reforms more effective and inclusive. [read more]

5. Tidal turbine project receives Eurostars funding

Marine energy companies Minesto and Atlantis Resources have been awarded EUR750,000 from the Eurostars Programme, co-funded by EUREKA member countries and the European Union. [read more]

8. Press Centre - Commission presents policy reforms to improve Bulgaria's research and innovation structures

The European Commission has presented today key policy recommendations that will help modernise the research and innovation sectors in Bulgaria. This is the first time that an EU Member State makes voluntary use of the Horizon 2020 Policy Support Facility (PSF), a new instrument that gives governments practical support to identify, implement and evaluate those reforms needed to enhance the quality of their public research and innovation structures.

9. Reflective research – F4E and partners develop mirrors for ITER diagnostics

Testing on how to clean the mirrors and to determine the best mirror surface to use for the ITER environment is currently being carried out. [read more]

10. Research Headlines - A giant leap for gamma ray astronomy

The ability to observe very high energy gamma radiation has opened a new window on the universe, and researchers around the world are keen to seize the new opportunities it offers. As part of an EU-funded project, they have created an international alliance to move beyond current experimental instruments towards a major telescope array for this new type of observation.
