Packing some power: storing energy at ultra high temperatures

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.

Improving disease detection through ultra-high-field MRIs

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.

MERLIN: Helping today's researchers create tomorrow's enterprises

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.

Special FET Pitch Event in Brussels

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.

The FET-Open Laser Lightning Rod

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.

Human-machine cooperation in healthcare

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.

Chromosome imaging promises breakthrough treatments

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.

SUMCASTEC – selective neutralization of Cancer Stem Cells

The FET-Open project SUMCASTEC explores a radically new approach for cancer stem cells (CSCs) real time isolation (i.e. within minutes vs current 40 days) and neutralization. A novel micro-optofluidic lab-on-chip (LOC) platform will be developed through a joint and iterative efforts by biologists, clinicians and engineers.
