3D X-ray imaging
From 03/05/2017 to 03/05/2017
The goal of the FET-Open project, Voxel is to develop a ground-breaking 3D X-ray technology which will not only reduce the adverse effects of classical x-ray technology but also increase image quality. Read more

From 24/03/2017 to 24/03/2017
High risk, long term, multidisciplinary and collaborative frontier research, laying the foundations for radically new, next generation technologies – this is the essence of the Future & Emerging Technologies (FET) programme. But how do you communicate efficiently on such high level science projects without losing your audience along the way of science? How do you achieve the outreach you have always dreamt of? Read more

From 09/02/2017 to 09/02/2017
Technology relies on new ideas. And in recent decades, there has been an explosion of new ideas about materials just a fraction of the size of a human hair. Nanomaterials - materials on the scale of nanometres - promise to improve and even revolutionise products from electricity cables to personal electronics to solar panels. Read more

From 17/11/2016 to 17/11/2016
Nanotechnology harnesses the power of the very small - just a fraction of the size of a human hair and too tiny to see with the naked eye - to make more effective devices, materials and medicines. Now researchers behind the SKHINCAPS project funded by the European Union want to use nanotechnologies to make smart clothing and cosmetics. Read more
From 14/11/2016 to 14/11/2016
QuantERA is a new Cofund Action in Quantum Technologies. With a budget of over 37 million €, including co-funding from the European Commission, QuantERA will support international research projects in the field of Quantum Technologies. Read more
From 12/10/2016 to 12/10/2016
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
From 14/06/2016 to 14/06/2016
This is an important question for the development of personalized therapy. It is also highly relevant for an efficient production of bio-fuels or in agriculture. FET project MRG-GRammar is on a good trail to find answers. Read more
From 13/05/2016 to 13/05/2016
In an ever more complex and expanding world social sciences still have to rely on data from experiments with very limited numbers of participants. FET project IBSEN promises to change this with a viable simulation tool which takes account of real world conditions. Read more
From 13/04/2016 to 13/04/2016
How can Future and Emerging Technologies projects get their research results closer to the market? FET2RIN provides answers. Read more
