Active flaps on rotor blades improve performance
Little tabs off the trailing edge of helicopter rotor blades promise better lift and lower fuel consumption. Scientists are developing a demonstrator of the most promising structural and control technology to take eco-consciousness to new heights.
European network on solar power
A new pan-European network of national and regional funding organisations is set to position the EU as a leader in solar energy technologies.
Providing efficient and affordable food-drying methods
Drying heat-sensitive foods in order to produce high-quality products is a challenge. An EU initiative has delivered a novel food-drying technology to achieve faster drying times and reduced energy consumption.
Smart solution for tackling fouling on ship hulls
To clean ships, the marine industry uses various invasive cleaning techniques and prevention methods that are very costly and can harm the environment. An EU initiative has designed an innovative high-tech solution for reducing fouling on ship hulls.
Brain representations of verbs versus nouns
EU-funded research addressed an important open question in cognitive processing, namely the conceptual representation of action. Insight into brain regions involved and the types of information they process will support restoration of function.
