Latest news about the leading scientific and technological research projects in Europe.
A European research project in Kista in Sweden is working on a new instrument. The X-Mine European project hopes to reduce costs and time by using scanners and 3D technology.
The galvanizing business involves hot and arduous work, turning corroding steel into protected metal using baths of hydrochloric acid and molten zinc. It's also a business which EU researchers believe they can make cleaner and greener. Their tech is now facing, quite literally, the acid test.
With an increase in danger from natural disasters over the last decade - and indications that this will only get worse - a team of developers have created an app that gathers huge amounts of data in emergency situations.
Futuris takes a look at Europe's Bioeconomy sector and meets the people developing the myriad of bio-based products currently hitting the market around the whole continent.
New research is looking at ways of saving water at ultra-thirsty concentrated solar power plants, making this renewable energy more environmentally friendly.
Could a rear-mounted electric fan be the next step in aircraft design? We explore the tech of the EU's Centreline project and its goals of creating a greener, cleaner airliner.
New psychoactive substances (NPS) are designed to mimic the effects of illegal narcotics such as cannabis, cocaine or heroin. Despite this, they are often not illegal and can be cheaply purchased online.
Researchers are preparing a set of practical recommendations for policymakers and the industry on mitigating climate change effects. They’re also preparing a software tool that helps to manage fish stocks more efficiently.
The European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) is developing Certified Reference Materials (a “CRM”) to check pesticides in foods. A CRM is a measurement standard supporting laboratories to check the quality of their measurement methods.
Futuris meets the scientists trying to see if consciousness can be altered in patients that find themselves in minimally conscious states.
Futuris meets the researchers attempting to store energy at ultra high temperatures.
Can we create a thinking machine? Can we build a model of the human brain inside a computer? How do our minds really work? Those are some of the questions that researchers in the EU's Human Brain Project are trying to answer.
Scientists at a European research project called CHASSY are determined to replace petrochemicals in our medicines, cosmetics, plastics and fuels with yeast derivatives.
Researchers aim to reduce the amount of work the physical body needs to use a prosthetic. Tests on prosthetics and exoskeletons are being made at the Bio-Robotics Institute in Pontedera, Italy.
Futuris travels to northern Italy to meet the European researchers developing better ways to recycle composite materials such as carbon and glass fibre.
The EU funded Inception project is developing a cultural and architectural heritage data base using 3D tools which everyone from academics to tourists will be able to access.
Futuris meets doctors from across Europe who have joined forces as part of a European project aimed at improving treatment for patients with traumatic brain injuries.
