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
From 09/12/2015 to 09/12/2015
With today’s technology, supercomputers of the future would consume the amount of energy needed to power a little town. To allow the further development in exascale supercomputing without that extremely energy-intense trade-off, Exa2green developed a set of energy efficient High-Performance Computing (HPC) components, tools and algorithms.

From 29/10/2015 to 29/10/2015
An artificial society of robots inspired by marine biology will bring a number of benefits for underwater technology, and help to protect the waterways of Venice from further damage. Read more
From 14/10/2015 to 14/10/2015
The ABIOMATER project will explore how magnetically controlled metamaterials – engineered materials with properties not found in nature – could be used to improve medical devices and implants, upgrading treatment options for patients. From lenses to tissue engineering, the team plans prototypes within three years. Read more
