Antimicrobial resistance is the phenomenon of the decade, increasing medical expenses, morbidity and costing the European Union alone 25 000 deaths per year. The rush to discover new antibiotics has slowed dramatically, with trials for new compounds becoming rarer and less effective. This is an arms race between microbes and human being, and ERC grantee Prof. [read more]

Europe relies on natural gas and fossil fuels from a limited number of countries. These energy sources generate harmful greenhouse gases that accelerate climate change and its devastating impacts. The EU-funded HYDROSOL-PLANT project has developed a technology that has the potential to produce hydrogen on a large-scale, cost-effectively. This renewable energy could slow climate change and create a sustainable future. [read more]

City dwellers will be interested to know that their children are five times more likely to develop asthma or allergies, respiratory conditions that will affect around half of the European population before 2025 and remain, so far, without a cure. The ERC project HERA, led by Prof. von Mutius, from LMU Munich, focuses on what determines this type of protection. [read more]

European researchers have designed brain-like artificial neural networks capable of numerical and spatial cognition and written language processing without any explicit training or pre-programming. Their work, based on the machine-learning approach of generative models, significantly advances the development of self-learning artificial intelligence, while also deepening understanding of human cognition.
