The next deadline for submission of Research and Innovation Actions proposals under the Horizon 2020 Future and Emerging Technologies (FET-Open) programme is 16 May 2018. An information package with guidelines on proposal preparation, submission procedures and specific criteria for evaluation has just been put together.
Perovskite is a new material that could make solar power cheaper. Since it is semi-transparent it could even be used on a building's windows, generating electricity while also letting some light through.
19 successful projects have been selected and will be offered a grant under the Horizon 2020 Future and Emerging Technologies Innovation Launchpad call. A total of 50 applications have been submitted for this call.
FET-Traces has done an analysis of the impacts of the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme. They have found that FET research has relevant impacts on the areas of knowledge production, economy, people and society.
The last phase of Horizon 2020, the EU's Research and Innovation programme, has been launched. Roughly EUR 6 billion out of the overall budget of EUR 30 billion will be spent on research and innovations in the ICT sector.
Computerized tomography (CT) has been one of the greatest achievements in medical imaging. But for the patient CT can come at a price: a high, potentially harmful dose of x-rays. Scientists in a European research project are tackling the problem.
Professors Clivia Sotomayor and Dermot Diamond will chair the advisory group for the next 2 years. Clivia will take the leading chair role in the first year and they will reverse roles for the second year. Former chair Professor Jerzy Langer shares his full support to the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme in a blog post.
