The EU research website CORDIS has published a new results pack focusing on eight EU-funded projects that have developed new technologies and solutions to address the pressing challenges of caring for and assisting European citizens in a rapidly ageing society.
The EU-funded project Harvest4D will have a significant impact, not only scientifically, but also practically, as it solves many fundamental problems related to the capture, reconstruction, and visualization of 3D data to create 4D models.
In a dynamic environment where data science and big data promise to fundamentally challenge and improve the way policies are designed, executed and monitored, there is an opportunity for more global collaboration and mutual learning. An international Data for Policy conference hosted by the University of Cambridge proposes a wider discussion. Deadline for abstract submission is 16 May.
