  New bioeconomy initiative in Finland to support SMEs

This is evident with the latest figures, which reveal that the global market for bioinformatics is expected to reach more than EUR 4.5 billion next year. In order to home in on this demand, Tekes, the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation, has devised a concept aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

  2013 set to be the busiest year for digital agenda

Photo of article The Digital Agenda is now entering its third year, and has already made headway towards the objectives of getting every EU citizen to use the Internet, and helping Europe's citizens and businesses get the most out of digital technologies. Since the agenda was launched, 15 million Europeans have connected for the first time, and 68 % of Europeans are now online regularly, with 170 million on social networks. In addition, broadband is available nearly everywhere in Europe, with 95 % of Europeans having access to a fixed broadband connection. Consumers and businesses also have the flexibility of mobile Internet with 217 million mobile broadband subscriptions across Europe. But there is still more to come.

  Researchers set sights on overhauling air traffic communication across Europe

Photo of article Making skies safe for travellers is a key objective of Europeans. In order to do this, communication systems that are up to 50 years old must be replaced. The information which nowadays traffic controllers and pilots exchange, mainly verbally, will be upgraded with automated data available for more people in a new air traffic security internet. A European team of researchers is currently working on restructuring air traffic across the region to meet the challenges head on. The SECOMAS ('Spectrum efficient communication for future aeronautical services') is part of the European initiative's technological and operational dimension called SESAR ('Single European sky ATM research'), which is funded in part by the European Commission with a whopping EUR 700 million. Industry and Eurocontrol, the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation made up of 39 member states and the European Community, support SESAR with another EUR 2.1 billion.
