Linking nanosatellites for better Earth observation
Building on the success of three EU-funded projects, a proposed European space mission has won backing from the European Space Agency to build two nanosatellites that will demonstrate novel Earth observation and inter-satellite communication technology. Find out more...
Putting the metal to polymers for advanced materials
An EU-funded researcher has advanced the science of self-assembling materials by investigating the behaviours of a variety of metallopolymers. The research could potentially feed into applications such as better light-emitting devices, energy storage, data storage, sensors and solar cells - boosting the EU's competitiveness.

Energy Efficiency is the Cornerstone for Building a Secure and Sustainable Energy System
Friday, October 19, 2018 A global effort to deploy the right energy efficiency policies could, on its own, see greenhouse gas emissions peak quickly and then fall even as the global economy doubles between Find out more...
Preparing for the next revolution in production and logistics
Cyber-physical systems that blend the digital and real worlds are driving the development of smart factories, transport networks, electricity grids and even cities. The opportunities and risks presented by this expanding Internet of Things and big-data environment are being explored in-depth by EU-funded researchers. Find out more...
Powering a battery storage revolution
The atomic structure of common table salt could hold the key to a revolution in energy storage. EU-funded researchers are developing batteries that will extend the life of your mobile, power electric cars farther and support Europe's transition to renewables. Find out more...
Balancing social cohesion and urban regeneration
EU research is exploring issues raised by the regeneration of urban areas and the frequent resulting displacement of existing populations, comparing case studies in both Europe and major Latin American cities. Lessons learned will inform future urban restructuration policies. Find out more...
