FLAG-ERA (the Flagship ERA-NET) will present on 12 January 2017 its second Joint Transnational Call (JTC) for collaborative research projects in synergy with the two Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Flagships, the Graphene Flagship and the Human Brain Project. The purpose of this pre-announcement is to enable interested parties to start building their consortia and preparing their proposals. Read more
Graphene, the thinnest, strongest and lightest known material is also flexible, impermeable as well as extremely electrically and thermally conductive. These are all properties that are well suited for next generation Near-field communication antennas enabling two electronic devices to transfer data. Read more

The European Summit on Digital Innovation for Active and Healthy Ageing looks at how digital technology will transform the way we deliver health and care in Europe. Who will be there and what shouldn't you miss? Read more
An insightful workshop, hosted by the PRISTINE and ARCFIRE projects, on "beyond SDN/NFV" was held in conjunction with the SDN and OpenFlow World Congress 2016 in The Hague (NL) in October 2016.
A demo was featuring a Distributed Interprocess Communication Facility (DIF) that was constantly being renumbered without corrupting existing flows or impairing the ability to create new ones. Read more
Computational creativity studies the potential of computers to act as creators and think creatively in arts and science projects. Five computational creativity projects funded under the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme came to an end with great outcomes. These unique projects brought together top researchers designing computational systems that are creative on their own, laying the ground for future autonomous creative systems. Read more
This Summit aims to look at how digital technology will transform the way we think about delivering health and care in Europe. Areas covered will range from health (medical treatment) to prevention and healthy lifestyles (physical activity and sport/wellbeing) and other areas of the Silver Economy (Silver Tourism, Age Friendly Homes and Living Environments etc.). Participants will help to define a shared vision on how innovation can transform demographic change into an opportunity for Europe's ageing society and the Silver Economy. Read more
Smart online platforms will be a vital enabler of future economic growth across the EU and a key component of the EU single digital market. They also promise new ways to pool and mobilise society’s resources with the potential to address various impending social and environmental crises.
However, to reap these benefits, new thinking is required around the regulation and governance of smart online platforms to ensure balanced interests, and to promote fair and safe forms of participation, particularly relating to the role played by algorithms and data in driving economies of scale.
