Dynamical systems theory and applications
The beauty of mathematics even for non-mathematicians lies in its ability to explain the world around us, to make the seemingly abstract more concrete. Advances in an important field of mathematics are providing a window on physical and biological systems.
European-made low-cost flexible displays
Most advanced display technology exploits indium tin oxide (ITO) films that are facing resource scarcity and rising costs. Breakthrough technology that is cost effective, eco-friendly and supports flexible displays will put the EU in a world leadership position.
Joining polymers and metals
Polymer-based composites provide higher strength, lower weight, and better corrosion and impact resistance compared to conventional metal materials. Novel thermal joining processes to bond them with metals will expand applications and benefits.
Microbes that monitor bioremediation
A new wireless monitoring sensor system with a novel biosensor unit that autonomously monitors and controls the clean-up of contaminated sites will save time, money and increase the efficiency of bioremediation
New therapy for primary hyperoxaluria
Primary hyperoxaluria (PH) is a rare and devastating disease resulting in renal failure and death at a young age. An EU consortium is developing a drug product based on Oxalobacter formigenes, to promote enteric elimination of oxalate through the gut and thereby protect the ki...
Laser technique for bonding plastic to metal
An EU-funded project focuses on developing an innovative system for joining metals and plastics or plastic composites together using laser technology. Project results should have important implications for automakers seeking to lower emissions and improve fuel consumption.
