  • 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.
  • An in-depth look at the EU's response to transboundary crises

  • Participation and the young

    How do young people participate in decisions that concern them and their involvement at the local level? There are many ways they get involved, not all of which are recognised in formal ways. A new EU-funded project is exploring how the rising generation engages with public debate.

  • Savage warfare: examining the past

    In war, there are rules - but sometimes countries decide that they don't apply. Colonial campaigns, for example, were often seen as exceptions. EU-funded research is studying several fought over a century ago. Ancient history? Hardly. Many aspects of this troubled past remain relevant to current debates as the world attempts to tackle terrorism.
  • Proposals for Poland

    Poland does not necessarily top the list of destinations researchers consider while planning their next career move - even if it is their home. And yet, it has much to offer. A new EU-funded grant scheme will enable 90 incoming scientists to advance their work at Polish research organisations. It will also help to consolidate the country's research community.
  • Mobile Age project: making senior citizens benefit from open government data

    On 1 February 2016, ten European partners launched the Mobile Age project. Aiming to develop inclusive mobile access to public services using open government data, Mobile Age targets a group of citizens that are usually marginalised when it comes to technical innovations but which is rapidly growing in number and expectations: European senior citizens.
  • My-AHA | An ICT platform for healthy ageing
