The PLATFORMA project will produce novel high-content phenotypic platforms for screening cosmetics, pollutants and new therapeutics. The project builds on the results of the Pathfinder (FET-Open) project, MESO-BRAIN, which developed functional 3D human-stem-cell-derived neural networks of defined and reproducible architecture, based on that of a brain cortical module that will display in vivo connectivity and activity.
The European Innovation Council Business Acceleration Services and PKO Bank Polski invite you to apply for our joint EIC Corporate Day, a specially designed service to increase the possibilities to accelerate your business collaboration with PKO Bank Polski.
The EIC created a new Story 3 September 2020
The wait is over – you can now register for the Research & Innovation Days 2020. Open to all and free of charge, the event aims at gathering Europe’s best and brightest researchers, scientists, innovators, policy makers and entrepreneurs and bringing them together with the public to debate and shape the future of Research and Innovation in Europe and beyond. Join the virtual sessions on 22-24 September and be part of the online discussions!
From longer droughts to increased flooding and more robust crop diseases, climate change is creating new challenges for the European agriculture sector. With more accurate and reliable water data, crop yields on agricultural land can be improved and this information can help to fight the global food and water crisis. Through the support of the EIC-funded WATER4AGRI project, the Dutch company VanderSat developed a technology that can accurately measure the location and amount of water in the soil, anywhere in the world.
Nanomaterials and nanodevices constitute key technology improving e.g. precision medicine and therapeutic approaches. The BOW project will advance this field by camouflaging them with natural biomembranes from extracellular vesicles.
Hacker, innovator, out-of-the-box-thinker, engineer or tech geek? We want you! Join Europe’s 1st Greenathon from 27 October to 30 October 2020, with the whole EIC crowd. Tackle our society’s challenges to help transform Europe into the first climate neutral continent by 2050! Many attractive prizes are waiting for you! Interested? Keep your eyes on the EIC Community and mark your calendars for 27-30 October 2020.
The European Innovation Council Business Acceleration Services invites EIC Pathfinder beneficiaries (FET-Open & FET-Proactive ) to participate in our second Innovation Training Workshop. You will get the opportunity to learn in depth about eventual/potential commercialisation of your projects outcomes and maximise your value proposition. The two-day workshop will be based on interactive sessions and will offer concrete business tools to you and your research project, which can be immediately implemented. 
The resolution of Virtual Reality devices on the market is just 1/100 of what the average human eye can see. This means that all visual details are lost due to heavy pixelization, which makes these products rather useless in professional applications. Varjo is the first and only company in the world to deliver human-eye resolution virtual and mixed reality devices, meeting the most demanding enterprise applications across training and simulation, design and engineering and research. With the latest funding round, the Finnish startup has raised $100 million in total.
In our daily routines, whether we send an email, we post something on Facebook, or we download an episode from a TV show, we generate data that is stored in different data centres. These data centres and cloud providers consume 6% of the global electricity and generate 4% of the global CO2 emissions, posing a serious threat to the environment. The digital industry is trying to minimise its impact on the environment with different attempts, and the Spanish startup Submer is doing its part. The EIC-funded project is changing data centres to make them as sustainable as possible.
The BrainCom project develops novel medical devices for restoration of speech and communication in aphasic patients suffering from upper spinal cord, brainstem or brain damage. At the same time the researchers also tackle the ethical aspects of the innovative technology.
