EU-funded researchers have developed novel design tools, data management systems, apps and best practices for the next generation of computer animation techniques for use in gaming, blockbuster films, training, education and more boosting Europes competitiveness in the sector. [read more]
With the discovery of the Higgs particle, our understanding of the building blocks of everything we see around us was finally confirmed. But this type of matter is only part of what appears to exist in the universe, and the Higgs boson offers a window to this new world. EU-funded research is helping to pave the way for new breakthroughs. [read more]
Healthcare costs across Europe are increasing, with an ageing population and the burden of treating chronic diseases consuming valuable resources. EU-funded researchers have used Model-Based Therapeutics (MBT) - a process whereby computer models of the human body, patient data and automation are combined - to create new treatments for common medical problems that improve patient well-being and save money.

Preliminary results of the Horizon 2020 project RESIN (Resilient cities and infrastructures) will be discussed. In a panel setting with participation of DG Research, a city representative, researchers and eminent members of the scientific advisory group, the policy relevance of RESIN outcomes will be investigated. Topics to be discussed include a European city climate risk typology, standardized climate risk assessments for European cities, the role of standardization in urban adaptation in general, and co-creation in urban adaptation. The RESIN project focuses on the integration of critical infrastructure within the overall adaptation of cities to climate change in Europe. [read more]
