Why does IoT need 'Identifiers'? Could a single identification scheme fit all needs? The EU's Alliance for IoT Innovation (AIOTI) performed a thorough analysis on IoT 'Identifiers' to better understand the identifications needs in IoT and related standards.
The first ever EOSC-hub week takes place on 16-20 April 2018 in Malaga, Spain, and brings together service providers, researchers and policy-makers to focus on the implementation of the European Open Science Cloud.
BioMot, a project working to create wearable robots that help injured patients move better, has concluded with a successful trial. The trial showed that the injured subject was able to use the BioMot robot to exercise, helping their gait function. BioMot now plans to create devices that patients can use at home.
The Commission's Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) research funding programme delivers results above expectations – and researchers appreciate it because it allows for a special mode of research.
Can we use individual bio-molecules as computers? Researchers in the H2020 FET project Bio4Comp are working towards exactly that. Now they need your help with the next step.
Workshop on Research and Education Networks and E-Science in Salamanca, Spain - a chance to take stock of the digital transformation of science and the current state of research collaboration networks in Europe.
EU ministers responsible for research and innovation met in Brussels on 29 May 2018 at the Competitiveness Council. They adopted conclusions on the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), an open and trusted environment for managing research data. It will be a facility at the service of European researchers that will allow them to make the most of open science.
The WiMUST marine robotics project designed an innovative robotics-based system for geotechnical surveying at sea. It created a team of surface and underwater robots able to perform acoustic geotechnical surveys of the sea bed, with more flexibility and robustness than traditional surveying methods.
The key technology building blocks are there, the first 5G standard has been adopted and proof of concept has started. But standardisation work needs to continue based on the latest R&D results. The second phase of the public private partnership on 5G (5G PPP) will be important to master 5G technologies and look into their applications with relevant users like vertical industries.
Currently, electronic communication happens when optical fibres transmit messages from one device to another by a system of digital impulses travelling at light speed across the world. But what if not just a simple message, but a question, could be submitted at one end and the answer came out at the other? That could be one of many beneficial outcomes if the GRASP project succeeded in their search for technology allowing for computing with light instead of electricity.
The second EOSC (European Open Science Cloud) summit took place on 11 June in Brussels. Only two years after its launch, the EOSC is one step closer to becoming a reality: a pan-European virtual environment for all researchers to access, store, analyse and re-use data for research, innovation and educational purposes and make the EU a global open science leader!
Regular local commuting for business or pleasure is an everyday reality for many European citizens, which is why urban transport is a key issue for every EU country. The QUANTICOL project focuses on smart-city planning and has created innovative methods and tools for planning dynamic systems, from transport networks to power grids. How can this innovation improve our everyday lives?
The European Association of Remote Sensing Companies (EARSC) held its annual general meeting on 26-27 June in Brussels. During the event, EU policy makers and industry representatives discussed the future of European earth observation (EO) services and of Copernicus, the European EO programme providing a wide range of information services based on full, free and open data from satellites and land-based sources.
We are CONNECT(ed): we live and work connected strongly to the dynamically changing reality, following and shaping new trends and tech developments in the EU and in the world. And we constantly adapt our organisation to reflect the challenges of digital innovation.Therefore, we have decided to introduce some changes in DG CONNECT organigramme as of 1 July 2018.
The EU FET Symbitron project gathered researchers from 5 European countries to build wearable exoskeletons to help people who have suffered a spinal cord injury to walk again. The next step is to prepare the robot to compete at the Cybathlon games in 2020 in Zurich.
Under the European Commission leadership, 60 high-level representatives from Member States, Norway and Switzerland worked out joint priorities to boost leadership and industrial competitiveness on Artificial Intelligence with European values at the core.
Everybody knows that diamonds are beautiful and ever-lasting jewels symbolising purity and commitment. What might surprise you is that the heavenly purity of diamonds can be used in quantum technology devices with unprecedentedly high performance. DIADEMS, a FP7 FET project working with ultrapure diamonds developed high tech multi-functional measuring devices that will be used in medicine and computer science.
Sašo Džeroski's MAESTRA project team developed software implementations that help machine learning systems to deal with big data complexity. The software is now public. How can the novel MAESTRA methods influence the world around us?
European research in brain science and in supercomputing are progressing, on each side, at a fast pace. As neuroscientists need more and more access to high-end computing capacities, a new partnership will deepen the links between the two fields, paving the way for novel insights into basic brain function and to new approaches to treating and diagnosing brain disorders. Interestingly, new findings in neuroscience promise in return technological advancements that will increase the versatility and performance of supercomputers. Katrin Amunts, Scientific Director of the Human Brain Project and Jean-François Buggenhout, Head of the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Flagships Unit at the European Commission, share with you their views on the promising alliance of European Neuroscience and High Performance Computing.
The recently finished EU FET project OBSERVE has created a toolkit for anybody wishing to engage in futures dialogues and thinking in order to uncover new perspectives on the potential of the present.
