  • Building on a 3D solution for resource-efficient construction

    We know that 3D printing is set to revolutionise manufacturing. But construction? EU-funded researchers are putting the building blocks in place with 3D printing technology enabling the construction sector to manufacture concrete building materials in a more efficient and cost effective manner. The technology is being combined with more traditional techniques to offer an all-in-one solution.

  • Making Poland's energy infrastructure more sustainable

    The EU-funded SuPREME project will help to promote a conversion to renewable energy systems and resources in Poland by twinning one of the country's best energy research centre with more advanced EU centres of excellence in the field.

  • 3D X-ray imaging at very low dose

    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.

  • Reflecting on cultural opposition to communism

    The EU-funded COURAGE project is compiling and analysing collections of cultural opposition in former socialist countries, making the collections more accessible for educational and research purposes and highlighting their importance as a testimony to anti-communist opposition in Europe.
  • NoHoW video: How to maintain a healthy weight with eHealth

    Helping people to lose weight has been very much examined. The NoHoW project however focusses on keeping the weight off in the long term. While collecting evidence about what works and what doesn't, the NoHoW researchers have developed a weight loss maintenance toolkit consisting of mobile apps, web-based tools, smart scales, activity trackers etc.

  • Harnessing the sun to clean up industrial processes

    The production of cement and lime involves fossil fuels and produces harmful greenhouse gases. Industry could change this, if scientists can develop a technology that can use solar power for high temperature industrial processes. The EU-funded SOLPART project has built lab-scale reactors that use a solar powered process to meet this need.

  • Breaking down barriers to EU text and data mining uptake

    Text and data mining (TDM) has huge potential research and innovation, but the inhibitive European regulatory framework means that EU uptake remains low. The FutureTDM project will first identify these barriers, and then seek to dismantle them.

  • Cypriot sunshine for solar thermal energy research

    The NESTER project is twinning the Cyprus Institute and several internationally–leading solar energy research institutions to strengthen solar thermal energy research in Cyprus, Europe and beyond.

  • Sharing information for better cyber security

    The EU-funded SISSDEN project will create, deploy and operate a network of sensors to detect, collect and share information about potential threats to cyber security and how to tighten computer defences accordingly.

  • Fish production forecasts for sustainable fisheries

    The EU-funded ClimeFish project will co-create projections of fish production and distribution together with industry. The project will help ensure that future increases in seafood production occur in areas and for species where there is potential for sustainable growth.
