  • FET-Open project ChipScope and the new tiny microscopes

    12/10/2017
    ChipScope aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries, under the leadership of the University of Barcelona, will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

  • Events - MARITIME CUISINE MEETS SUSTAINABLE TOURISM. CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES - 11 May 2017, BOULOGNE SUR MER, France

    05/10/2017

    The Mobilisation and Mutual Learning workshop « Maritime Cuisine Meets Sustainable Tourism » is organised in the framework of the MARINA project funded by Horizon 2020 programme and hosted by Nausicaa - Centre National de la Mer in France. I

    t will bring together European and national representatives from tourism and seafood industry, researchers, policy makers, civil society and citizens.

    They will share knowledge and expectations, define a common vision and propose

  • New Technological Advances for the Third Generation of Solar Cells

    10/08/2017
    Achieving energy efficient, cost effective and versatile solar cells has always been a challenge for the scientific community. The emerging perovskite sensitized solar cells (PSCs) are very attractive candidates to fulfil these requirements. Their potential for fast rise in performance attracted intense attention from scientific community and in particular from GOTSolar consortium.

  • Preserving sponge grounds in the North Atlantic

    14/07/2017
    EU-funded research into North Atlantic sponge grounds aims to discover unique sponge ecosystems. This should improve understanding of such ecosystems functioning, help predict threats, ensure their sustainable use and assess their links to human well-being.

  • An integrated observing system for the Atlantic Ocean

    12/07/2017
    Buoys, floats, moorings and research vessels, to name just a few examples - data about the state of the Atlantic is collected by a number of means. And by a profusion of actors, who could jointly produce even better results if they applied a common strategy. EU-funded researchers are driving the development of an integrated system.

  • Valuable metals not stuck in the mud

    08/06/2017
    Bauxite residue - the by-product from the extraction of aluminium from bauxite ore - has the consistency of thick, red mud. Disposing of this waste poses a serious problem for industry, as does the risk of spills. But red mud can also be a source of critical metals. The REDMUD project intends to turn residues into low-carbon building materials - and to train researchers along the way.
