FET projects

Thomas Skordas's pictureThe two Future and Emerging Technologies Flagships of Horizon 2020, The Human Brain Project and Graphene, have recently received additional funding from the European Commission for the next 2 years of their 10-year journey which started in 2013.

I am glad to inform you that the EU and the US have announced a collaborative research scheme in the area of graphene and related materials.

Completely ordinary photos are being transformed into clean, high-resolution 3D worlds thanks to algorithms from the Harvest4D consortium.

FET-Open is an extremely popular programme. The number of applications has been continuously rising since the previously ICT-centered programme was opened to all disciplines in 2014 within the Horizon 2020 Research & Innovation programme. Now that all the proposals from the first truly open FET-Open call 2014/2015 have been evaluated, it is time to take stock.

Michael Wimmer's pictureApril is a busy month for the Future and Emerging Technologies Flagships with many important milestones: Partnering kick-off events, seminars, HPB platform release, a new web portal and the start of Graphene Phase 2!

“Wir wissen nur dass wenn wir hier rauskommen, das wir alles dass wir hier erlebt haben in die Welt hinaus schreien müssen, anders kann man nicht leben”

What happens to us when we interact with an avatar in a virtual environment? How can we know who is "behind" this avatar, and whether this experience will influence our behavior in the "natural" world? Those are some possible issues we explored from an ethical point of view within the VERE project.

Researchers discover a new approach towards neurorehabilitation through the combination of art and science, stubbornness, perseverance, teamwork and Future and Emerging Technologies.

Timo Hallantie's pictureIn the coming days, the Commission will launch the interim evaluation of the two FET Flagships, the Human Brain Project (HBP) and Graphene. The evaluation will be held by a panel of high-level experts. Their goal will be to analyse the capability of the Flagships in delivering their long-term objectives. The recommendations of the evaluation panel will help fine-tuning the current implementation of the Flagships and their governance model and pave the way for future FET Flagships.

Thierry Van Der Pyl's pictureNew technologies have a huge positive impact on human lives. Already today, mechanical limbs connected to the nervous system and exoskeletons – innovative devices that impaired people wear in order to support their mobility and dexterity – can enhance physical performance and help by-pass disability. BNCIs (brain-neural computer interfaces) help people with severe disabilities regain control over everyday life; participate in society, and work. This is why we support new technologies. And we will keep on doing it.

The intertwining of different disciplines is not only beneficial but often necessary for research to thrive.

The marvel of an octopus, the dream of robots made differently, soft and dexterous! OCTOPUS opens the way to a new research field.

Did you know that quantum effects play a role in photosynthesis? Find out how we can exploit this further, in the near future.

Elements of user interfaces for computers and mobile devices go 3D! Have a look at the videos showing new ways of interacting; it is like playing with physical objects.

High pressure in the pharmaceutical industry to decrease development time and costs has led to significant advancements to improve pre-clinical drug assessment. The “Body on a Chip”(BoC) develops interconnected 3D microtissues in a format compatible with existing assays to improve the relevance and speed of pre-clinical drug safety assessment.

The Human Brain Project Flagship call for systems and cognitive neuroscience community to join the project's next phase, under Horizon 2020
