City life from the past is about to come to life, casting history and the cities' identity in a new light. An EU-funded project is harnessing digital technologies to share and improve access to archived film stock. The work promises to be of great value to social scientists working in sociology, anthropology and cultural studies. [read more]
The EU-funded project ITEAM is developing next-generation technology for intelligent vehicles. The aim is to drive down greenhouse gas emissions while making vehicles easier and safer to operate - and boost the competitiveness of European manufacturers. [read more]
Liquid-crystalline fluids are used in many modern optoelectronic devices, from medical tools to smart phone and computer screens - probably including the display you are reading this on. A related soft matter technology currently being explored by EU-funded researchers could have a broad range of novel industrial and commercial applications. [read more]
Understanding the interaction between matter and light could lead to countless scientific and technological applications. The EU-funded MEDEA project is training researchers in photonics on how to put new discoveries to use in industry. [read more]

Technologies such as our beloved smartphones have taken the world by storm, but some of the materials needed to make them are in short supply. This is also true for other crucial applications - industrial catalysts, for instance. Two projects jointly funded by the EU and Japan have looked into possible substitutes for various critical metals. [read more]
The MAGicSky project is investigating the potential of nano-sized particle-like topological deformations, known as skyrmions, to revolutionise technologies for data storage and processing, making them more effective and energy-efficient. [read more]
The NEMF21 project is working on a new approach to microchip design that would enable wireless chip-to-chip communication. Moving away from wired connections will open the way for more powerful electronic devices that will shape the electronic consumer market of the 21st century. [read more]
2017 is the tenth anniversary of the SET Plan, the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan that aims to accelerate the development and deployment of low-carbon technologies. This conference will review the progress achieved over the past decade in the transition to a low carbon, innovative energy future and the SET Plan's key role as the technology pillar of EU's energy research and innovation policy. It will focus on: • The implementation process of the Energy Union strategy, with a special focus on its Research and Innovation dimension and the current state of negotiations under the "Clean Energy for All Europeans" package • The role of innovative low-carbon technologies in boosting European competitiveness, progress in developing new technologies and smart energy systems for efficient use of energy, and the growing share of renewables in the primary energy consumption of EU member states • Current trends in electro-mobility, the safe use of nuclear energy, enhanced energy storage, and other crucial technologies for the transformation of the EU energy system • The role of Central European countries and their contribution in implementing the Energy Union's and the SET Plan's goals. Ten main panels will cover the priorities of the Energy Union and the SET Plan and three parallel thematic evening sessions will focus on related subjects. [read more]
