Is it possible to store energy at extremely high temperatures of up to 2000ºC? What are the advantages of having such technology? And what are the challenges when it comes to developing it? These are just some of the burning questions scientists from the FET-Open Amadeus project are trying to answer at an experimental foundry in Norway.
The widespread adoption of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revolutionised clinical medicine, and the revolution has not stopped. Scientists in the FET-Open project are exploring ways to make MRIs even more effective - aiming to help patients get the best possible treatment through early disease detection.
The European Commission will support 13 projects with a total of €33.12 million to bring innovations faster to the market.
The funding comes from the pilot phase of the European Innovation Council (EIC), which targets fast-moving and high-risk innovation with strong potential to create new markets.
A total of 277 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from 25 countries have been selected for funding under the latest round of the EIC SME Instrument. The companies will receive a total amount of €13.7 million to share between their projects to get their innovations faster on the market.
The European Commission will invest €195 million in setting up and developing 13 new ‘centres of excellence’ in seven Member States, helping to boost research and innovation performance and inspiring the scientific community to develop new products and processes in tandem with leading scientific institutes from all over Europe.
Do you have research results worthy of being exploited?
But when it comes to the next stage of commercialising or setting up a company, are unsure of how to take the ﬁrst step? MERLIN, as part of the EU’s Innovation Radar initiative, is your opportunity to take you and your research results to the next level.
The Commission is today revealing the first ever image of a black hole taken by Event Horizon Telescope, a global scientific collaboration involving EU-funded scientists. This major discovery provides visual evidence for the existence of black holes and pushes the boundaries of modern science.
