  • CURE will cure asthma

    11/12/2017
    Asthma has become a major health and economic burden in Europe affecting 30 million Europeans and one quarter of European children. Current therapies are limited to temporary improvements of the conditions of asthmatic patients but none tackle the underlying causes of the disease. There is no cure for asthma and so far no developments are recorded for new cures but what if this complex disease requires out-of-the box thinking?

  • 3D X-ray imaging at very low dose

    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.

  • Is your FET research taking EFFECT?

    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?

  • Making dreams come true: EU scientists turn tiny ideas into real materials

    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.

  • Nanotechnology goes skin deep: but EU researchers keep it safe

    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.
