Success Stories - Ready to wear electronics Scientists at a research facility in the German city of Berlin dream of clothing that produces energy as we walk. They have combined very different nanomaterials into so-called energy harvesters.
Research Headlines - Reaching new heights: EU-made carbon fibre for satellites Remember when there were no satellites? Before your time, maybe, as the first was launched in 1957. Today, we would be lost without them - quite literally so, but satnavs ...
Research Headlines - Silicon in a new light In an early application of a new discovery in semiconductor physics, EU-funded researchers have developed a silicon infrared detector that is simpler and cheaper than conventional detectors. The ultimate goal ...
Success Stories - From wings to walls: EU funded project turns on a new era in heating Imagine wind turbine or aircraft wings that de-ice themselves in extreme conditions or floors and walls with invisible, built-in heating. Or even clothes that warm you up on the coldest ...
Success Stories - Nanodiamonds sparkle as science delves into the human body The world's hardest natural material also has the most enthralling sparkle - these two properties mean that tiny diamonds are giving us dramatic new ways of interacting with the human ...
Success Stories - Making dreams come true: EU scientists turn tiny ideas into real materials 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 ...
Research Headlines - Energy saving for industrial robots Automated manufacturing saves time, ensures product quality and makes workplaces safer. But it also requires additional power. Grid architecture and tools from an EU-funded project could make robotised factories more ...
Success Stories - 'Fingerprinting' to stop flow of dark web drugs From invisible online markets, past border controls and straight to the consumer, fake pharmaceuticals are on the rise, but now a mix of anti-counterfeiting technology is helping halt the wave ...
Research Headlines - Giving citizens a voice in the era of nanotechnology From user communities to school competitions, an EU-funded project has given civil society a stronger voice in the ongoing debate over nanotechnology. The goal is to help ensure societal concerns ...
Success Stories - Artificial retinas help bring life back into focus You might think that part-human, part-machine cyborgs belong only in fiction, but adding a bit of technology into your body could help prop it up as it ages, as researchers ...
Research Headlines - A capacity boost for Europe's fibre optic network The EU-funded INVENTION project aims to develop a cost-effective approach that will boost the capacity of Europe's optical fibre network to handle the ever-increasing demand for high-bandwidth applications such as ...
Research Headlines - A targeted approach to treating osteoarthritis Nanocarriers are tiny substances that can be used to transport other materials, such as drugs, to specific areas of the body. The EU-funded TARGETCARE project plans to use them to ...
Research Headlines - Hot electronics get magnetic cool The EU-funded HYMAGINE project has combined conventional electronic transistors with new magnetism-based 'spintronic' devices to improve information processing speeds and reduce energy consumption.
Success Stories - New technology lets scientists see, touch and smell on the nanoscale The next generation of electronics - in everything from computers to mobile devices - relies on circuits and features at the tiniest of scales. But for scientists and engineers to ...
Research Headlines - Adding 'sparkle' to ultra-hard tools By applying innovative laser techniques to ultra-hard machine tool materials, such as diamonds, the DIPLAT project has shown the way to better performance. Their technology has led to the launch ...
Research Headlines - One small step for a protein... EU-funded researchers have built a new microscope that can track single molecules, and have used it to clarify how materials are transported inside living cells. It could have wide application ...
