SMART TRASH: Study on RFID tags and the recycling industry

Radio Frequency Identification Technology (RFID) can contribute to better and more responsible waste handling. In conjunction with investment in service innovation this can result in a competitive advantage for businesses and societies on global markets, and thus contribute to sustainable future economic growth and employment important for Europe's future. However, RFID technology produces itself electronic waste that enters the waste stream. The report evaluates both perspectives.

 
ICT to fostering inter-family relationships, naturally

From mobile phones to social networking, technology helps bring geographically dispersed people together. But most applications are designed for individuals, not groups or families. EU-funded research is addressing the issue with innovative tools designed to help families communicate and interact as naturally as possible even if they are hundreds or thousands of kilometres apart. The solution combines state-of-the-art artificial intelligence with ambient intelligence, multimedia tools and audio and video capturing, encoding, processing and transmission to enable near-natural interaction and communication between dispersed groups of people.
