The FET-Open project QUAKE aims to market a transversal tool combining interactive supercomputing and in-situ techniques to break traditional workflows in High Performance Computing simulations. This could be applied to many different domains, including weather forecast.
The latest addition to the European photonic pilot-line projects has officially started with the launch of InPulse in January 2019. InPulse is the fifth EU-funded pilot-line to be launched in the past 3 years and focuses on indium phosphide Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) and subsystems.
As a result from the research and engineering efforts of the FET-Open project Cellviewer, a completely automatized super resolution microscope was built, capable of very fast imaging of many individual cells at the same time.
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 eHealth Hub Platform is a free online catalogue mapping the ecosystem of IT companies, investors and other stakeholders like experts, corporates and business supporters active in the European digital health landscape.
A robot that reminds older people where they have put things and helps them exercise has been successfully used by residents of three retirement homes in a trial to combat cognitive decline in later age.
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.
