Electric control of helicopter tail rotors
Most tail rotors on helicopters today are mechanically driven by the main turbine through a mechanical shaft and gears. An innovative electric tail rotor (ETR) promises important environmental benefits as well as improved control and safety.
A novel therapy for muscular dystrophy
Nearly 1 in 5 000 male births suffer from a lethal genetic condition known as Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). European researchers worked on an innovative approach to restore the levels of the mutated protein.
Young scientists look beyond the Standard Model
Dark matter and neutrinos are as ubiquitous in the universe as they are mysterious. An EU-funded network of leading physicists joined efforts to train the next generation of scientists who will build the theory that describes this unseen matter, besides ordinary matter.
Novel drug formulations against HIV
HIV infection constitutes an immense medical challenge for humanity. Optimisation of the formulation and delivery routes of anti-retroviral drugs (ARV) is required for better treatment outcome.
Europe's investment in galaxy research
An EU-funded network of leading research institutes supported a new generation of astronomers in their quest to analyse and interpret the latest observations of the Milky Way and nearby galaxies.
