  • Making dreams come true: EU scientists turn tiny ideas into real materials

    09/02/2017
    Technology relies on new ideas. And in recent decades, there has been an explosion of new ideas about materials just a fraction of the size of a human hair. Nanomaterials - materials on the scale of nanometres - promise to improve and even revolutionise products from electricity cables to personal electronics to solar panels.

  • GENIUS plays role in ESA map of Milky Way

    30/01/2017
    For millennia astronomers have looked to the sky and gazed in wonder at the stars and planets. Ancient civilisations already realised that objects in the sky appeared to move in a regular manner, and many communities used the stars to determine when to plant and harvest their crops.
  • Diamonds could help slow climate change

    22/12/2016
    Researchers are building a diamond-based device that can remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air and transform it into valuable chemicals, including fuel.

  • A surgical strike against bacteria

    17/11/2016
    Implantation of a prosthesis involves complex surgery conducted in a sterile environment. Still, sometimes implants get infected with dangerous bacteria. The consequences can be very serious. Why does this happen and what can be done to prevent it?

  • An energy-saving climate control system for electric cars

    17/11/2016
    EU-funded project XERIC plans to develop a climate-control system for electric vehicles that can cut energy use by half. Reducing energy use would extend the range of electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid cars, making the industry more competitive.

  • Impressive achievements for project Harvest4D

    12/10/2016
    The EU-funded project Harvest4D will have a significant impact, not only scientifically, but also practically, as it solves many fundamental problems related to the capture, reconstruction, and visualization of 3D data to create 4D models.
  • Electronic innovations open door to personal mobility for all

    19/09/2016
    By redesigning the car interior and harnessing the latest electronic technologies, EU-funded scientists are designing and developing an affordable and user-friendly electric vehicle specifically for Europe's ageing population. A prototype should be ready in 2018.

  • Collaborative, cost-effective approach to fuel cell manufacturing

    29/08/2016
    Efforts to establish a robust hydrogen-based transport sector in Europe must be underpinned by an equally healthy manufacturing industry for essential hydrogen-powered vehicle components.
  • Harnessing the full power of renewable energy with hydrogen

    29/08/2016
    Hydrogen has the highest mass energy density of any fuel, making it an extremely effective medium for energy storage and distribution. As Europe deploys more renewable capacity, from vast wind farms to roof-top solar arrays, hydrogen is set to be an essential integrator, harnessing excess power generation, balancing intermittent supply and demand, and ultimately helping support a clean, efficient and sustainable energy system.
  • Cleaner urban transport with hydrogen buses

    29/08/2016
    Trials in cities around the world have demonstrated that fuel-cell passenger buses can cut emissions and noise pollution while providing good quality public transport. New EU-funded projects could double Europe’s fleet of hydrogen buses – reducing vehicle and infrastructure costs per bus to boost take-up of the technology.
