High-performance biocomposites derived from wheat straw and recycled paper? EU-funded researchers have developed new materials and components based on substances isolated from these renewable residues. They have also found a way to extract silica from the straw, offering a greener alternative to current production methods for this compound. [read more]
Small scale wind energy has significant potential in urban, suburban and industrial areas, but numerous challenges currently stand in the way to wide-scale uptake of this decentralised energy resource. At this conference, organised in the framework of the European-funded SWIP project, you will learn about new technological developments in small wind turbines, and how to best integrate small turbines into urban areas, taking account of aesthetic impact, noise, vibration and safety issues, social awareness and acceptance, and regulatory and commercial limitations.

What would it be like to live on Mars? Much like Earth, maybe, in due course - but the pioneers who will one day head out there will face a deeply hostile environment upon arrival. EU-funded researchers have developed a habitat for simulated space missions in suitably challenging locations down here on Earth. It can also support research in extreme conditions. [read more]
People with schizophrenia are volunteering for a European research project to help the control and perhaps even silence the tormenting voices in their heads by confronting a computer avatar of themselves. [read more]

The EU-funded ClimeFish project will co-create projections of fish production and distribution together with industry. The project will help ensure that future increases in seafood production occur in areas and for species where there is potential for sustainable growth. [read more]
This is one of the many questions representatives from the European Commission and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy will discuss with highly experienced specialists of the energy sector on May 4th, 2017 during the Berliner ENERGIETAGE (BET, "Berlin ENERGY DAYS”). After giving an overview of the energy section in the present European Funding Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020, the panel will be open for an in depth discussion on the Dos and Don´ts in European Funding. The event will be held in German. Registrations for our panel discussions will be open until April 25th, 2017: https://www.energietage. [read more]
This “hackathon” style workshop completes and complements the online course on Intellectual Property Rights, Translation and Exploitation of Research. Students will work in small groups around joint applied research ideas in Neuroscience that the students will offer and conceive by themselves. The participants will study how to advance their ideas from the lab to market, understand the needs, the target population, patentability options and how to build a business model. Finally they will present their ideas to industry and academy experts. The workshop is a hands on unique experience of diving into the entrepreneurial world, learning how to advance the science into the next step. [read more]
