FET Open project Microflusa wants to revolutionize the fabrication of colloidal materials. While present production of innovative colloidal materials remains time consuming and limited to small scale, Microflusa proposes novel ways to break this bottleneck. Read more
The EU-funded project Harvest4D will have a significant impact, not only scientifically, but also practically, as it solves many fundamental problems related to the capture, reconstruction, and visualization of 3D data to create 4D models. Read more
The EU-funded RAMP project develops a nanoscale sensor, called a memristor, that could be fundamental for the development of implants that use electrical signals from the brain to treat medical conditions. Read more
The first cut-off for the 2016-17 FET Open call resulted in the submission of 554 eligible proposals, which have now been evaluated. Twenty-two proposals for Research and Innovation Actions and three proposals for Coordination and Support Actions have been invited for grant agreement preparation. Projects are expected to start by January 2017. Read more
This brochure shows an assessment of Horizon 2020 management and distribution throughout 2014-2015, with information including number of proposals and accepted applications, time-to-grant, key Horizon 2020 performance indicators, and more. Read more
The European Commission will set up a High Level Group of experts who will advise on how to maximise the impact of the EU's investment into research and innovation. The Group will be chaired by Pascal Lamy, President Emeritus of the Jacques Delors Institute, the Commission decided on 21 September 2016. Read more
Are you interested in short and focused FET OPEN innovation actions? Do you need funding for further innovation related work arising from FET-funded project results? Do not forget to submit your proposal under the FET Innovation Launchpad topic. Read more
The EU-funded DIVERSIFY project brought together researchers from the domains of software-intensive distributed systems and ecology, in order to translate ecological concepts and processes into software design principles. The project ended early 2016 but its impact is ongoing. Read more
Six of the world’s most advanced vehicles will race over a track made of gold. Only you won’t be able to follow the race because each competitor is just nanometres in size and invisible to the naked eye. Read more
