41. Success Stories - 3D city modelling for smarter parking

Tired of endlessly looking for a parking spot? Dreaming of having a bird's-eye view to locate free spaces in a congested city? ERC grantee Prof Luc Van Gool is a research leader in the area of computer vision. With his project 'VarCity', he works to innovate existing 3D city modelling by using object class recognition methods and crowd generated data. To apply his idea, Prof. Van Gool received an additional ERC Proof of Concept grant and created a spin-off that commercialises a video-based smart. [read more]

47. Success Stories - Root cause: making crop plants better at sourcing water and nutrients

Increasing a plant's ability to locate and absorb water and nutrients through its roots could potentially lead to bigger and better crop yields. That is the theory underlying an EU-supported research project at the University of Nottingham in England. Researchers there have been growing wheat and other crop plants in soils with different nutrients and water contents. [read more]

48. Widening gap between the rich and poor in European cities

"This spatial segregation of rich and poor can become a breeding ground for misunderstanding and social unrest," said Prof. Van Ham.This study compares the situation in 2001 to that in 2011 for thirteen European cities.
