  • Doctor looking at an X-ray image
    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.
  • communication hub
    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?
  • image of scientist with equipment
    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.
  • Image of industrial chimney with smoke
    Researchers are building a diamond-based device that can remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air and transform it into valuable chemicals, including fuel.
  • Image of woman's shoulder and ladybird
    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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • How can Future and Emerging Technologies projects get their research results closer to the market? FET2RIN provides answers.
