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 storage of energy at temperatures higher than 1000 °C using molten silicon-based alloys is the objective of the FET-Open project AMADEUS, which will create a new generation of extremely compact and lower cost energy storage devices.
The HybridHeart consortium envisions to develop and bring to the clinic a soft biocompatible artificial heart, which can completely replace a patient’s heart in a procedure similar to a heart transplant.
The LiRichFCC project will explore an entirely new class of materials for electrochemical energy storage termed “Li-rich FCC” comprising a very high concentration of lithium in a cubic dense packed structure (FCC).
An EU-funded project is investigating protein-rich crops in Europe as attractive
alternatives to meat - a means to reduce the environmental impact of livestock on the
planet and provide farmers with a new source of income.
An EU-funded study is exploring agricultural practices and EU policies related to drinking water quality and the use of pesticides and nitrogen. Results will inform an integrated EU response to a major environmental and health challenge.
