Searching the stars for habitable planets
New methods for detecting the tiniest variations in light waves from distant stars have helped astronomers find potentially habitable planets and opened the door to new projects designed to answer the question of whether we are truly alone in the universe.

Improved predictions for weather and climate
Never before has so much information concerning the global atmosphere, oceans and land surface been available but large gaps in the data still exist, especially regarding wind observations over the oceans and tropics. This lack of information prevents an accurate understanding of both the current and future state of the atmosphere and climate system.

How sensitive is climate to increased carbon dioxide in the long term?
Examining the levels of carbon dioxide and climate change in the past could help us predict the extent of global warming well beyond the end of this century, according to EU climate scientists.

More efficient ‘multi-switchable’ molecules could boost data storage
EU scientists can now model how complex molecules switch from one state to another when exposed to light, potentially paving the way for more efficient data storage devices and other novel technologies.

A solid-state platform for quantum technologies
EU-funded researchers have pioneered the coupling of single artificial atoms to photons within optical microcavities. Systems like quantum dots are essential building blocks for quantum information technologies, and a means to generate pure single photons on demand.

Solving real world problems with applied mathematics
What do tsunamis, the blood flowing through our veins, nuclear fusion, earthquakes, aircraft noise and clean energy have in common? According to the EU-funded STIMULUS project, they all share a common mathematical formulation as nonlinear systems of hyperbolic conservation laws.

Digging holes and building columns to defend against earthquakes
Although earthquakes and tsunamis are often unpredictable, there are defences that can be taken. For example, EU-funded researchers are protecting towns and villages by drilling holes in the ground.
