ImageEU-funded researchers have helped generate the most accurate map to date of dark matter, the mysterious substance that makes up 80 % of the universe. The innovative big-data technologies they used will have a significant impact on fields as diverse as astrophysics and biomedical imaging.
ImageThe EU-funded WATERSPOUTT project's partners in Malawi are designing and testing an innovative solar-ceramic water filtration system capable of providing local communities with a reliable source of clean water at the household level.

This conference will bring together relevant stakeholders including researchers, policy makers and regulators to identify and discuss the main scientific challenges for harvesting and enhancing the benefits of a sound environment for human health and the scientific challenges for solutions to overcome environmental threats to human health.

The main outcome will be recommendations on research and innovation priorities for the EU and Member States to work together to protect human health and our planet.

This event is co-organised by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare, the Finnish Environment Institute and the European Commission under the auspices of Finland’s Presidency of the EU in 2019.

The European Commission’s Directorates-General for Research and Innovation (RTD) and for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (CNECT) are hosting the workshop ‘Cross-border Innovation Procurement in Health: EU funding opportunities & best practices’.

Designing, procuring and deploying innovative solutions is an important component of every public sector modernisation strategy, especially in the health and care sector. However, the EU health service providers face many challenges, such as funding, a fragmented legal framework, lack of common standards or interoperability and varying user/patient preferences across the EU.

Through this workshop, we expect to attract a representative audience (procurers, potential suppliers, regions or umbrella organisations and regulators) to discuss how such challenges can be addressed through existing EU Innovation Procurement instruments in the area of health, such as Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) and Public Procurement of Innovative solutions (PPI). We will present the new PCP & PPI funding opportunities for 2020 and discuss how to best design and implement successful projects. A networking session is foreseen during the event.

ImageA smart robotic exoskeleton developed by an EU-funded project will help prevent lower back pain and provide relief to millions of people who suffer from the debilitating condition, one of the main causes of worker absenteeism worldwide.
ImageEU-funded researchers have developed new computer simulations for routinely redesigning enzymes - an approach that could speed up medicine production and help make the pharmaceutical industry more eco-friendly.
ImageAn EU-funded project has made a breakthrough in medical imaging. By developing a photon-counting detector for CT scanners, higher-resolution images with lower radiation doses can be produced for accurate non-invasive screening and diagnosis of diseases.
ImageSpices have been used in food and traditional medicine for millennia. But a new interpretation of 'SPICES' is coming to mitigate cardiovascular risk factors in carefully selected sites in parts of sub-Saharan Africa and Europe... the international research kind.
How should the next EU research and innovation programme be implemented, to ensure that it achieves its ambitious objectives? Where can we simplify further? How should we deal with the novel features in the new programme? What should the legal documents, processes and tools for the programme look like? Share your views now with the European Commission.
Today, Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, Carlos Moedas announced the names of the experts who have been selected as members* of the mission boards to work on five major European research and innovation missions. The missions will be part of Horizon Europe, the next EU research and innovation programme (2021-2027). This follows the announcement of the Chairs of the mission boards made at the Informal Council for Research Ministers in Helsinki, Finland.
ImagePutting a fresh spin on the proverb 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend', EU-funded researchers have developed and tested an innovative treatment for infections caused by antimicrobial-resistant bacteria, which have developed into a major public health threat. This new weapon is a cocktail of bacteria-killing viruses called 'phages'.
ImageAn EU-funded project is set to drive the commercial development of breakthrough laser-engineered products inspired by the unique skin and scale textures of animals and insects, potentially leading to entirely new applications across industry, energy and medicine.
ImageIn the field of pharmaceuticals, the term 'polymorphism' refers to the existence of a single substance in two or more crystalline forms. These different forms can vary widely in their efficacy, bioavailability and even toxicity. An EU-funded project is working to develop a method for directing polymorphism in pharmaceutical compounds, thus promising better drug treatments for patients everywhere.
ImageEU-funded researchers have discovered an important new mechanism by which cells flag and repair damage to their DNA - an unexpected finding that could improve the treatment of diseases such as cancer.
