The European Research and Innovation Days 2021 take place this week on 23 and 24 June. Since COVID19 struck more than a year ago, innovation and access to digital tools for education and training have become important priorities across Europe and offered new opportunities for the EdTech sector.
This brochure gives an overview of roaming in the European Union. Roaming charges ended for Europeans travelling within the EU countries on 15 June 2017. It took 10 years to eliminate them.
The municipality of Akranes is an Icelandic gem nestled between two fjords. Thanks to WiFi4EU, residents and tourists can enjoy free access to connectivity when admiring the city's main attraction, including the famous Akranes Folk Museum.
The FLIPT project tests and develops a novel way of polymer processing via controlled solidification derived from natural materials with reduced use of water and energy ("aquamelt" concept).
The Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Innovation LaunchPad aims to turn results from FET funded projects into societal or economic innovations. Up to EUR 100.000 is available to support short actions focused on the non-scientific aspects and the early stages of turning a FET result into a genuine innovation with socio-economic impacts.
The projects applying for the European Broadband Awards 2019 will be assessed by a jury composed of five European broadband experts with comprehensive experience. The jury will select the finalists and the winners in each of the five award categories. The jury members are: Ivančica Urh, Mart Võrklaev, Koen Salemink, Maija Ahokas & Konstantinos Champidis.
The Biomedical Applications of Electromagnetic Energy workshop features the technological developments made by the project Semiconductor-based Ultrawideband Micromanipulation of CAncer STEm Cells (SUMCASTEC).
Is it possible to store energy at extremely high temperatures of up to 2000ºC? What are the advantages of having such technology? And what are the challenges when it comes to developing it? These are just some of the burning questions scientists from the FET-Open Amadeus project are trying to answer at an experimental foundry in Norway.
The widespread adoption of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revolutionised clinical medicine, and the revolution has not stopped. Scientists in the FET-Open project are exploring ways to make MRIs even more effective - aiming to help patients get the best possible treatment through early disease detection.
Do you have research results worthy of being exploited? But when it comes to the next stage of commercializing or setting up a company, are unsure of how to take the ﬁrst step? MERLIN, as part of the EU’s Innovation Radar initiative, is your opportunity to take you and your research results to the next level.
EIC FET-Open project STARDUST will deliver a conceptually new device for in vivo optogenetics, electrophysiology and triggered local drug-delivery for Parkinson’s Disease.
Are you involved in a project on very high-capacity networks, infrastructure or applications? Has your project been at least 65% completed? Would you like to see your project recognised at a European level? Then don't miss the chance to apply for the 2019 European Broadband Awards! Big or small, rural or urban, private or public, you might be the next winner in one of the five categories. The winners will be announced in December 2019 and showcased across Europe in European Commission and very high-capacity network events. Deadline for application is Friday, 6 September 2019.
This is the final event of the Horizon 2020 project "COMPASS - Evidence and Opportunities for Responsible Innovation in SMEs". The event will be a meeting point for companies, researchers in the area of responsible innovation in industry, innovation support organizations and policymakers.
Lightning is a fascinating albeit destructive manifestation of nature. Estimates on the average number of persons killed by lightning every year range from 6000 to as many as 24 000 worldwide. Lightning is also the cause of power outages, forest fires and damages to electronics and infrastructure amounting to billions of euros each year, making it a major societal concern.
People are increasingly interacting with intelligent technology, as the real and digital worlds become intertwined. The EIC FET-Open project is working to bring new forms of human-machine collaboration into real-life educational settings for healthcare providers that will benefit students, trainers and patients.
FET-Open-funded researchers are developing pioneering tools and techniques that will enable scientists to view chromosomes in unprecedented detail, greatly advancing research into life-saving treatments for cancer and cures for many genetic disorders.
Precision measurements of atmospheric conditions is a challenging but important task. One solution are laser based measurement systems. These enable precision wind velocity measurements for wind shear detection and the optimization of wind farm turbines. In addition, greenhouse gas concentrations can be measured from satellite based laser systems.
The FET-Open project QUAKE aims to market a transversal tool combining interactive supercomputing and in-situ techniques to break traditional workflows in High Performance Computing simulations. This could be applied to many different domains, including weather forecast.
The first evaluation of Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Innovation Launchpad actions under the European Innovation Council pilot withheld 25 proposals. These will now receive an invitation for grant agreement preparation.
The FET-Open project SYMBIOTIC works towards the development of an autonomous, low cost, disposable electrochemical biosensor for the early detection of cancer.
