Europe remains a main knowledge production centre of the world, but lags behind North America and Asia in fast-growing technologies of the future. This is a key conclusion of the latest Innovation Union Competitiveness Report published today. While Europe continues to lead science and technology for aeronautics, automobiles, clean transport, waste management and renewable energy, the report shows that it risks falling behind in other emerging global growth markets such as health and biotechnology.

Fire and extreme weather remain one of the major threats to archaeological sites. But a European collaboration has developed a warning system to protect our cultural heritage. In fact, last year it helped to save the ancient city of Rhodiapolis, in the Antalya region of Turkey, which escaped a wild fire. Quality validation date: 2013-12-02 [read more]
I'm quite unusual personally because I'm an equally successful artist, I'm a songwriter, I've written some big hit records and I've also been a successful scientist and a technology inventor. And I think it's easy for innovation to get stuck into little siloes and I think really radical innovation is gonna come from people who look on a very holistic way. And Innovation is unlikely to be completely driven by technology now. It's about finding human need and then using technology to make that change. [read more]
One of the novelties under Horizon 2020 will be the launch of a full-scale pilot to test a 'Fast Track to Innovation' instrument aiming to speed up the time from idea to market and to increase the participation of industry, SMEs and first time applicants. The pilot will be set up in 2015 and assessed as part of the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020. DG Research and Innovation is organising a dedicated workshop with experts and stakeholders to prepare the setting up the 'Fast Track to Innovation' pilot with the aim to test this approach in a fully open and transparent way and in line with the potential beneficiaries' needs.

What I think is, in the European Union we actually have a big value which is research and innovation, if we compare it with other countries in the world, like China, or like emerging countries right now, Brazil, India... so we really should improve this part because we are very good, we are at the top of it and we are at the top in the world so we should really improve that part. Research and Innovation is a European thing, I would say. So let's do it in the best way, in the way that we know. [read more]
I personally believe that Humanity in general should rely on research and innovation to generate more food and products for a growing population, a growing number of people living on earth, with less resources. So we will need less resources, to do more things, and I think that's the main challenge for researchers around the world. [read more]
To help patients manage their chronic heart and kidney disease, the European Union has awarded 2,6 million euros to the CARRE project. A group of interdisciplinary researchers will develop personalised alerting, planning and educational services. This will empower patients, and both professionals and patients will be able to make shared informed decisions on the disease. [read more]
Since the first team of astronauts went on-board in 2000, the International Space Station has cost the international community over EUR 7 billion. Whilst a significant amount of data has been generated, ensuring a return on the investment requires the storage, dissemination and exploitation of this new knowledge. Most people see the International Space Station (ISS) as the shiniest and most expensive example of post-Cold-War space cooperation between nations. Quality validation date: 2013-11-29 [read more]
A high-level JRC roundtable on efficient buildings was organised today as a follow-up to the 26 March event for scientific support to growth and jobs in the areas of efficient buildings, vehicles and equipment. Today the participants deepened the dialogue on efficient buildings, discussing initiatives, financial aspects and the link between technology, policy and behaviour. [read more]
