32. Success Stories - Meet the robot designed to look after our elderly relatives

You're old, you live alone, maybe you lose your glasses a lot or you forget to take your medicine on time. So what do you need? Zacharias the prototype robot of course - at least that is what an EU funded research consortium are banking on. [read more]

33. Research Headlines - Investigating Earth and fluid dynamics

Understanding how fluids and other materials flow in response to applied forces is critical to many industrial applications, energy production processes and even determining the stability of the ground beneath our feet. The field of study, known as rheology, is being advanced by an EU-funded research network combining expertise in geodynamics, mineral physics, seismology, fluid mechanics and materials science.

34. Research Headlines - Protecting communities from the effects natural disasters

Damage and loss from flash floods, landslides and avalanches have increased in recent decades, and experts predict a further increase in intensity, frequency and impact. The EU-funded CHANGES project has developed modelling tools that can help governments to at least ensure such events are less catastrophic. Some of the tools are already being used. [read more]

35. Research Headlines - Collaborative machining, powered by the cloud

Design, planning, and even production - EU-funded researchers have developed a cloud-based system that supports the machining of parts. Intended primarily for SMEs, this system is designed to streamline manufacturing processes and facilitate collaboration among users. [read more]

36. Success Stories - An underwater kite built to harness tidal energy

It looks like a big toy, but it's a technological jewel designed to produce energy from the tides. It is a prototype kite, very different to those used for flying. Its design allows it to glide underwater at speeds up to ten times faster than the tides themselves. [read more]

37. Research Headlines - A people focus for better consumer science

Consumer science, policy and law usually assume that consumers are purely rational decision-makers. An EU-funded project has challenged that assumption. It has trained early-career researchers to study the impact of emotional factors on human decision-making, to help consumers make choices that are better for their well-being. [read more]
