An EU-funded project retold the story of the mechanisation of British textile production, by placing industrialisation into a wider context. The results provide fresh insights into technological change that are still relevant today. [read more]
The overall goal of EMPHASIS is to develop and promote the take-up of practical and effective solutions to prevent and protect European crops from native and alien pest threats, improving productivity and resilience of European agriculture, in the context of climate change. The course is made up of three sections: • innovative strategies for diagnosis and management in horticultural crops • emerging pests in horticultural crops • use of LAMP technology This course aims to train young researchers on epidemiological issues related to emerging pests and pathogens, and on innovative management strategies in horticultural systems. It also aims to provide skills about the use of innovative and effective diagnostic systems. [read more]
After a political introduction, this Seminar will shed light on the opportunities offered by RFCS, the Research Fund for Coal and Steel, Horizon 2020 and the Innovation Fund. With the insights from industrial and research stakeholders, the first two sessions will focus on ‘Energy in future steelmaking’ and ‘Steel in the energy market applications’. The third session will explore the technological paths towards ‘Greening European steel’. These proposals will be discussed by a roundtable of European and national policy-makers that will address issues related to industrial policy, R&I and the EU multi-annual financial perspectives.

The REWARD Project is almost completed and we are happy to announce a final stakeholder event together with the dieper project in order to show final REWARD results as well as first (dieper) results. The dieper project is almost midway. We would like to share the REWARD innovations, the results we have achieved in both projects, and our vision for the future of diesel engines at the Transport Research Arena 2018 which will be held from 16-19 April 2018 in Vienna, Austria. The REWARD Project The goal of REWARD is to develop advanced diesel engines that are able to respond to the demands of the future. [read more]
An EU-funded project created an interactive suicide prevention programme to promote mental health in teenagers. Following considerable success in a wide-ranging trial involving thousands of students, it is now being used worldwide to save lives. [read more]
How to harness the power of open data? Getting inspiration from the work of the Swiss Data Science Center. The Briefing, jointly organised by the Mission of Switzerland to the EU and SwissCore, will start with a presentation of Edouard Bugnion, Vice-President of the EPFL and Academic Co-Director of the Swiss Data Science Center (SDSC). He will elaborate on the work of the SDSC, its main challenges and opportunities to secure a ‘truly open global science’. Christophe Rossel, Vice-President of the European Physical Society and member of the Open Science Policy Platform and Jean-Claude Burgelman, Head of Unit ‘Open Data Policy and Science Cloud, Directorate-General Research and Innovation, European Commission, will then join a panel discussion where they will share their insights on the development of the European Open Science Cloud.
