  EU and Ukraine set sights on stronger S&T activity

Photo of article Solid research ties are on the cards between the EU and Ukraine thanks to the launching of the information platform S&T (science and technology) Gate UKR.EU which targets better S&T cooperation on a global level, and facilitates networking of research organisations and institutions in the EU and Ukraine, and scientific dialogue between EU Member States and Ukraine. The BILAT-UKR ('Enhancing the bilateral S&T partnership with Ukraine') project, funded under the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) with more than EUR 496 000 in support, developed and financed the S&T Gate UKR.EU platform. BILAT-UKR seeks to be a factor in the fuller integration of Ukraine into the broader European Research Area (ERA).

  SynBIOsis promotes solid European research ties

Photo of article Synergies that fuel the European Research Area (ERA) also promote the scientific development of regions across the EU. Enter the SynBIOsis ('Maximising synergies for central European biotech research infrastructures') project that has brought together two research-driven clusters (RDCs) — Friuli Venezia Giulia (Italy) and South Moravia (Czech Republic) — that are active in diverse research fields including bioinformatics, computational biology and biomedicine. SynBIOsis has received almost EUR 940 000 under the 'Regional' priority of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), as the first-ever project coordinated from the Czech Republic, to establish trans-regional actions resulting in a Joint Action Plan that will respond to the needs and opportunities identified, and will fuel research-driven economic growth in both regions.

  European astroparticle physics points the way

Photo of article What is the Universe made of? What are gravitational waves and dark matter? These fundamental questions are being studied by astroparticle physics, a field whose time has come. It has been described as the point where particle physics meets astrophysics – or where the infinitely small meets the infinitely large. This has been an emerging field for the last ten years with the potential for some thrilling discoveries. From laboratories beneath the sea, deep underground, in the middle of remote deserts or out in space, scientists are taking on new challenges, with Europe at the forefront. Over the next few years very large scientific instruments will be developed in order to detect some of the most elusive particles in existence, and uncover the mysteries of our Universe.

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.

Scientific Support to Policies
Policy decisions – especially at the European level – are never easy. What policy-makers decide will potentially affect the lives of millions of people for many years. Recognising the power of science to serve the decision-making process, the European Commission funded over 250 projects under its ‘Scientific support to policies’ (SSP) initiative under the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) for Research. These projects are summarised in the Information Centre and described in more detail on the SSP web site.
