  Android vulnerability neutralised

Photo of article Smart phones and tablet computers – once the latest must-have devices for technology geeks – are becoming increasingly more popular with the mainstream. The Android platform is now one of the most popular platforms with over 300 million Android devices in use since February and 700 000 devices being activated with each passing day. One of its main attractions is the open source software that allows a huge community of program developers to write applications. But with so many people contributing to this innovation, the operating system is open to bugs and security holes. In a new study, however, researchers in Italy may have neutralised any potential problems. Their study was funded in part by the SPACIOS (‘Secure provision and consumption in the Internet of services’) project, which is backed with EUR 3.35 million under the 'Information and communication technologies' (ICT) Theme of the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).

  World's first tunable broadband RF device emerges

Photo of article A team of researchers from the Universitat Politècnica de València's iTEAM (El Instituto de Telecomunicaciones y Aplicaciones Multimedia) in Spain has created the first, tunable broadband radio frequency (RF) photonic phase shifter. Because it is based on a single semiconductor element, the device will be cheap to manufacture and help save up to 80% on energy consumption. The study was funded in part by the GOSPEL ('Governing the speed of light') project, which was backed under the 'Information and communication technologies' (ICT) Theme of the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) to the tune of EUR 2.19 million. The findings of the study are published in the journal Optics Express.

  Researchers prove safety of quantum cryptology

Photo of article Scientists in Belgium and Spain have proved for the first time that new systems of quantum cryptology are much safer than current security systems. EU support for the research came from the Q—ESSENCE ('Quantum interfaces, sensors and communication based on entanglement') project, which received nearly EUR 5 million from 'Information and communication technologies' (ICT) Theme of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and from the PERCENT (‘Percolating entanglement and quantum information resources through quantum networks’) project, which was awarded EUR 700 000 as part of a European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant under FP7. The study was published in the journal Nature Communications.

To restrict search results to articles in the Information Centre, i.e. this site, use this search box rather than the one at the top of the page.

After searching, you can expand the results to include the whole Research and Innovation web site, or another section of it, or all Europa, afterwards without searching again.

Please note that new content may take a few days to be indexed by the search engine and therefore to appear in the results.
