The Graphene Flagship launched by the European Commission in 2013 is steering towards higher technology readiness level and seeking new partners to join the Consortium. A call for expression of interest is open until 30 May for organisations that can bring specific industrial and technology transfer competences or capabilities on graphene and related materials to complement the current consortium.
The survey is designed for e-infrastructure service providers and their customers and users to help to solicit requirements and needs for the development of a common e-infrastructure service catalogue.
This event brings together researchers, health and care professionals, industry representatives and other key stakeholders to celebrate best practice research and innovation in the multidisciplinary study and implementation of falls prevention in older people.
The Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) and the European Commission launched on 6 May the second Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Telecom call for 2017. The call makes €25.5 million available to stimulate and support the deployment of European Digital Service Infrastructures (DSIs).
The workshop will highlight recent research advances in 2D-materials materials and heterostructures achieved in the Graphene Flagship and Japan. Researchers from the EU Flaghship project and Japan will also be focusing on material production and device fabrication, and exploration of electronic, photonics, and spintronics in novel structures.
nöGIG is one of the five winners of the European Broadband Awards 2016 competition. The project implements a three-layer open access model with point to point FTTH networks in underserved rural areas, combining attractive prices for private and business end users with large choice of service providers. This is an excellent example of striving for openness and competition in broadband.
The European Commission has just published the final report of the study "ICT for Work: Digital Skills in the Workplace" on the impact of information and communication technologies (ICT) on the transformation of jobs and skills. The evidence shows that digital technologies are used in all types of jobs, also in economic sectors not traditionally related to digitisation e.g. farming, health care, vocational training and construction.
