  Saving our cultural heritage
What will come - as time goes on - of traditional dance, folk music, of the cultures of the people? To prevent their disappearance, a European research project - in Thessaloniki in Greece - is establishing a digital database, fully dedicated to intangible cultural treasures of humanity.

  Reducing steel industry waste through nickel recovery
Stainless steel is one of the most ubiquitous materials in the modern world, playing an essential role in manufacturing, construction and other sectors. Home to one of the largest steel industries globally, the European Union is at the forefront of efforts to make steel production more efficient, less wasteful and more environmentally friendly.

  Killer bug could deliver medicines
A bacterium that causes pneumonia is being redesigned to act as a 'cell doctor' that detects and treats disease from inside the human body.

  Giving citizens a voice in the era of nanotechnology
From user communities to school competitions, an EU-funded project has given civil society a stronger voice in the ongoing debate over nanotechnology. The goal is to help ensure societal concerns are incorporated at all levels of decision-making, and that research with the potential to directly benefit citizens is prioritised.

  Artificial retinas help bring life back into focus
You might think that part-human, part-machine cyborgs belong only in fiction, but adding a bit of technology into your body could help prop it up as it ages, as researchers are demonstrating with the development of artificial retinas to improve deteriorating vision.

  Arctic rivers to spill their climate change secrets
A team of scientists from France, Russia and the US is analysing Arctic river water to understand the impact of thawing soil on the carbon cycle. Results from the EU-funded project will help researchers better model the long-term effects of climate change.

  Creating the computing experts of the future
What do research on personalised medicine, work towards safer aircraft, understanding turbulence and unravelling the structure of matter have in common? They all require high performance computing (HPC). An EU-funded project is creating the experts we will need to find the answers to these and other global questions using HPC.

  Training the antiviral drug developers of the future
Viral infections are a major course of disease worldwide. Licensed antiviral drugs are currently only available for a few viruses, such as HIV, influenza and hepatitis C. Through a multi-disciplinary, inter-sectoral training programme, the ANTIVIRALS project is training a new generation of experts to develop novel antiviral drugs

  Thinking outside the box: EU researchers help industry become more efficient
Large industrial plants constantly monitor the resources that go in and the products - and waste - that comes out. Companies use this data - known as resource-efficiency and life-cycle inventory indicators - to work out their performance over months or years.

  A capacity boost for Europe's fibre optic network
The EU-funded INVENTION project aims to develop a cost-effective approach that will boost the capacity of Europe's optical fibre network to handle the ever-increasing demand for high-bandwidth applications such as video streaming and cloud computing.

  Targeted treatments for advanced-stage bowel cancer
The EU-funded MoTriColor project is seeking to develop novel therapies for advanced-stage bowel cancer patients by targeting treatments according to each patient's disease subtype.

  A possible treatment for severe sepsis undergoes clinical test
EU-funded project SEPCELL will conduct a clinical trial of a stem cell treatment for patients with severe sepsis caused by a severe form of community-acquired bacterial pneumonia. The trial is one of a series of steps in assessing whether the treatment is safe and efficacious for patients with this life-threatening disease.

  Advice for farmers on best grass for biofuels
Farmers and growers of perennial grass for biomass are using the results of an EU-funded project that investigated new strains, seeking higher productivity and increased stress tolerance.


  Process optimisation for streamlined polymerisation
Polymers are everywhere, and in the modern world, many of them are manmade: materials such as polyethylene, nylon and PVC are part of our daily experience. EU-funded researchers have developed solutions to make polymer production in the chemical industry more efficient and more sustainable.

  Enhancing energy efficiency across diverse urban areas
Retrofitting buildings across entire city districts with modern insulation, heating systems and other new construction techniques is a cost-effective way to improve energy efficiency. But the variety of urban areas in Europe means there is no one-size-fits-all solution. EU-funded researchers have developed a macro-level modelling tool for sustainable district retrofitting that takes into account Europe's broad urban diversity.

  Adapting heritage environments to modern requirements
An EU-funded project has developed and brought to market unique tools and methodologies for ensuring historical buildings meet modern environmental and energy efficiency standards while preserving their original character.

  Children's eye-movements provide insights into language development
A team of EU-funded researchers from Germany, Russia and the Netherlands is using eye-tracking technology to better understand the speech development of bilingual children, and to distinguish the natural mistakes they make in speech from those of children with genuine linguistic impairments.

  Embracing the darkness beyond standard physics
Much of the material composing the cosmos is dark matter, a strange substance we can't see or touch. So how do we know it's there? Actually, we don't, but scientists largely agree that it must be, inferring its presence from gravitational effects observed in space. An EU-funded project is analysing cosmic rays in a bid to find further clues.

  A fresh splash for Aquaculture
In a fish farm in the west of Scotland around 1,000 tons of salmon are bred every year. Marine biologists think today’s European aquaculture can become more imaginative, more profitable, more efficient and more sustainable.

  A FEAT of earthquake research
The sudden earthquakes that hit the headlines can be catastrophic. However, much slower ruptures release energy more safely. An EU-funded researcher is identifying how these little-understood slow ruptures occur, their precursory signals and how they are linked to fast earthquakes - information that could one day help develop early warning systems.

  Heating up European relations: researchers turn industrial furnaces green
Heavy industries like metal foundries, glass, ceramic and cement makers rely on large, energy-guzzling furnaces to heat materials during processing. But the drive to make processes more economical and ecological requires new, more efficient technologies.

  A targeted approach to treating osteoarthritis
Nanocarriers are tiny substances that can be used to transport other materials, such as drugs, to specific areas of the body. The EU-funded TARGETCARE project plans to use them to treat joint and intervertebral disc diseases - improving patients' mobility and quality of life.

  An in-depth look at the EU's response to transboundary crises
How should the EU respond to ongoing and future crises? The EU-funded research project TransCrisis seeks to advance understanding of the EU's capacity to handle transboundary emergencies.

  Musicians virtuosity shows cues for hard of hearing
At a lively cocktail party, a noisy bar or busy restaurant, musicians are best at following conversations, and brain scans are revealing how this can be used to help the hard of hearing.

  Diamonds could help slow climate change
Researchers are building a diamond-based device that can remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air and transform it into valuable chemicals, including fuel.

Notes:
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.
