    EU-funded researchers have used carbon nanotubes to create exceptionally strong, lightweight and cost-effective materials for aircraft parts. They have demonstrated the potential of this material for making lighter aircraft that burn less fuel - a big boost to the competitiveness of Europe's transport industry.

    In an emergency evacuation, indicating the safest exit can save lives. EU-funded researchers hope to minimise casualties with a smart sign system able to determine the safest exit and point people towards it. Trials have been encouraging, and discussions are underway on further developing some of the project’s ground-breaking technologies.
