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?
Would you like to know how to best design a successful communication and dissemination strategy for your FET project? The FET-Open project EFFECT is here to provide you with best practices guidelines during the organized by them communication strategy webinar. The webinar will address researchers and projects coordinators, as well as any stakeholder interested in FET research.
A new batch of 28 excellent proposals that aim to explore novel ideas for Future and Emerging Technologies has been invited for grant preparation. The 26 Research and Innovation Actions and 2 Coordination and Support Actions were selected by independent experts in a fierce competition of 374 submitted proposals. The next deadline for submitting a FET-Open proposal is on 27 September 2017.
What is happening in molecular communication? To what extend can we interfere with the process, how and what for? Those and numerous other questions are challenging researchers in the field. One of the utmost difficulties for this emerging research filed, however, is synergizing the research methods, plans and approaches for maximizing the efficacy and success of the research.
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.
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?
