A new microscope was developed by European scientists which will allow to show 3D images of very fast biological processes, such as the blood moving through the heart chambers, and the process within neuronal cells. Blood moving through a Japanese rice fish heart was successfully recorded by the team of researchers (picture). It may prove […]

A new study from Material Economics states that zero-emission EU industry is “within reach”, but costly. Heavy industry such as cement, chemicals and steel still rely a lot on fossil fuels, and moving to a zero-emission system would need high investments. However, the mentalities have change, and EU industry in general seems to be more […]

The EU Research commissioner Carlos Moedas wants a “mission on cancer” during the next Framework Programme, Horizon Europe. We estimate that there will be 22 million new cases of cancer every year in Europe in 10 years, and it already kills nearly 2 million European every year. It is still unclear how much budget this […]

While the implementation of Horizon Europe was voted by the European Parliament with a broad majority, it is more than a third of its budget which will be dedicated to the research linked to the climate. Moreover, we know the three pillars: excellent science, global challenges and European industrial competitiveness and innovative Europe. The exact […]

These are the words of Carlos Moedas to Science Business. The EU Research Commissioner does not imagine Horizon 2020 without the participation of the UK, even with the Brexit. The participation of the UK to European Framework Programmes was curiously almost not debated with the other Brexit subjects and the exact terms of that potential […]

As Horizon Europe is shaping up, scientists from all around Europe gather to call for more investment against cardiovascular disease.

An aerospace project has been funded with 2.7 million euro to develop a rocket system which could be used several times. Using this innovative system would mean cheaper travels to space and less harm to the environment. Read more Source: Novinite, Sofia News Agency

European grants for research support a lot of different projects in a lot of different fields. Today, this is a new state of matter which was discovered thanks to these grants. European scientists discovered a state of matter which allowed atoms to be at the same time liquid and solid. Find out more here Source: […]

Carlos Moeida and his Chinese counterpart Wang Zhigang met on Tuesday during the 4th Chinese-EU summit to discuss the future of the partnership between the European Union and China in research. While the lack of transparency in China is a major issue for European researchers, the different reporting schedule and the need for Chinese researchers […]

Yesterday, for the first time in the History of mankind, the image of a black hole was captured. It was captured by Event Horizon Telescope, an international research collaboration in which EU-funded scientists participate. The image which instantly became famous worldwide is the result of years of research, which received funds through FP7 and H2020 […]
