  • Chill a drink in 45 seconds with new technology that's 80% more efficient than existing coolers

    Rapidcool, an innovative project supported by European Union research funding, aims at reducing the energy requirements for cooling drinks at the point of sale, saving retailers’ money and ultimately helping the environment.
  • The Human Brain Project has begun

    The Human Brain Project: The world’s most ambitious neuroscience project is underway. Scientists from the 135 partner institutions of the Human Brain Project, co-funded by the European Union with an estimated budget of EUR 1.2 billion, are meeting in Switzerland for the official launch.

    With more than 130 research institutions from Europe and around the world on board and hundreds of scientists in a myriad of fields participating, the Human Brain Project is the most ambitious neuroscience project ever launched. Its goal is to develop methods that will enable a deep understanding of how the human brain operates.
  • Graphene flagship has set sails

    The Graphene Flagship – one of Europe’s first ten-year, EUR 1 mln
