TRIP’s second research theme analysis report is due to be published in Spring 2016 and will cover cooperative intelligent transport systems. To have your research considered as part of the analysis, make sure your project is submitted to TRIP in advance of 9 October deadline. Submit project [read more]
Lung cancer is the leading killer of all cancers worldwide. The outcome depends heavily on when the disease is diagnosed. But therapeutic strategies are also key, and those currently available are only making modest inroads into mortality rates. The EU-funded project WINTHER set out to improve methods for predicting the efficacy of drugs in cancer patients in a ground-breaking new approach to targeted therapies. [read more]
New technologies allow emergency services to improve their communications. By using 4G networks and open standards, personnel can share pictures and videos, and talk to other emergency workers, no matter what device they use. [read more]

An EU-funded project is attempting to validate a prototype test designed to predict which combination therapy would best suit individual patients with colorectal cancer, the most common form of cancer in Europe. The test is expected to lengthen the life expectancy for those with this aggressive form of cancer by indicating the most effective treatment combination for individual patients. [read more]
An EU-funded project has flown a drone controlled from the ground using only a person's brainwaves. The technology could one day make it easier to pilot larger aircraft, such as cargo jets, and result in safer airways, say the project's researchers. [read more]
A new study analysing available statistics on consumer food waste has estimated that Europeans waste an average of 123 kg per capita annually, or 16% of all food reaching consumers. [read more]
Producing graphene in bulk is critical when it comes to the industrial exploitation of this exceptional two-dimensional material. To that end, Graphene Flagship researchers have developed a novel variant on the chemical vapour deposition process which yields high quality material in a scalable manner. This advance should significantly narrow the performance gap between synthetic and natural graphene. Flagship-affiliated physicists from RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich have together with colleagues in Japan devised a method for peeling graphene flakes from a CVD substrate with the help of intermolecular forces.
