A loan backed by the InnovFin-EU finance for innovators initiative under the EU's Horizon 2020 programme and the European Investment Bank (EIB) is supporting construction of the European Spallation Source (ESS) research centre. Its powerful neutron beams will open up opportunities for researchers in a range of disciplines.

The EU-funded SWEETOOLS project aims to improve our understanding of the role of sugars in human biology. Exploring optimised versions of biosynthesised proteins combined with chemically synthesised drugs could help the development of novel biomedicines and vaccines targeting, for example, influenza.
