The EIC Pathfinder project VISORSURF has developed planar materials with software-programmable electromagnetic behavior that will revolutionize wireless technology with an app.
PEDPOC is developing a new generation prototype for Point-of-care testing (POCT) of Preeclampsia (PE), one of the most common pregnancy complications causing severe threats to mother and baby.
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).
When we did the first implantation in 2008, the real question was: can we give back sensations to an amputee using electrodes implanted in peripheral nerves?
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 commercialising 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.
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.
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.
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 FET-Open project SYMBIOTIC works towards the development of an autonomous, low cost, disposable electrochemical biosensor for the early detection of cancer.
As a result from the research and engineering efforts of the FET-Open project Cellviewer, a completely automatized super resolution microscope was built, capable of very fast imaging of many individual cells at the same time.
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.
Can art and citizens help scientists find a solution to a long-standing quantum physics problem?
How being part of two ambitious FET-Open projects helped haptics company Ultrahaptics accelerate innovation and commercial development.
The project VOSTARS (Video and Optical See Through Augmented Reality surgical Systems) is developing a new Augmented Reality surgical visor, employing state of the art photonics technology. The visor is developed to improve accuracy and speed of interventions, for example by virtually superimposing a patient’s x-ray on their body or showing medical data, so that a surgeon never has to look away during an operation and gets all updates in real time.
The eHealth Hub Platform is a free online catalogue mapping the ecosystem of IT companies, investors and other stakeholders like experts, corporates and business supporters active in the European digital health landscape.
A robot that reminds older people where they have put things and helps them exercise has been successfully used by residents of three retirement homes in a trial to combat cognitive decline in later age.
