  • image of hand pressing screen
    The EU-funded GETUI project is developing ways to assess how gestures fit into the communication skill set needed for collaborative problem solving.
  • image of cyclist
    Cyclists suffer a disproportionately high share of road accident injuries and fatalities. Through a combination of detection technologies, warning systems, information display and cooperation systems aimed at reducing collisions, EU-funded researchers are planning to cut fatality figures and make cycling safer.
  • image of family have lunch outside
    Diabetes is a global health threat. Three EU-funded projects are testing community-based approaches to prevention and management of the disease in Europe, Asia and Africa.
  • Image of two people, one a doctor, holding hands
    EU-funded project SUSTAIN aims to improve care services for the elderly by integrating the needs and wishes of patients. Such integrated, patient-centred care will promote better services and more choice for older people.
  • Image of plane wing
    Imagine wind turbine or aircraft wings that de-ice themselves in extreme conditions or floors and walls with invisible, built-in heating. Or even clothes that warm you up on the coldest of days.
  • image of ocean
    From mussel farming to wind farms, the EU-funded MARIBE project showed how various marine projects could cut costs and benefit from each other by linking up. Optimising the use of our oceans and seas would also stimulate growth in the blue economy.
  • On 27 January 2016, key representatives of the Animal health community joined in Brussels to launch the International Research Consortium (IRC) on Animal Health. Less than one year later, thanks to Horizon 2020 funding, a new Scientific Secretariat for this IRC is up and running.
  • VIVOIMAG aims to develop a new contrast agent to improve visibility and enable the real-time evaluation of bone grafts using existing scanning and imaging techniques. Such innovation could, in the future, have a substantial impact on the medical field of tissue regeneration.
  • Image of binary code in front of buildings
    Future urban mobility will require more space for people and environmentally friendly vehicles, and less space for cars. L-category vehicles such as motorbikes and mopeds could be part of the solution, but potential users are put off by high prices.
  • Image of traffic cones
    In a bid to achieve problem-free and proactive mobility solutions for transport, the EU-funded OPTIMUM project is developing IT systems to monitor, gather and analyse multi-source big data on transportation behaviours. This will improve transit, freight transportation and congestion levels throughout Europe.
