ImageAn EU-funded project investigated how pathogenic viruses, including influenza A, take control of the protein synthesis machinery in human cells. This has provided valuable new knowledge, which paves the way for new flu treatments.
ImageEU-funded researchers have helped generate the most accurate map to date of dark matter, the mysterious substance that makes up 80 % of the universe. The innovative big-data technologies they used will have a significant impact on fields as diverse as astrophysics and biomedical imaging.
ImageThe EU-funded WATERSPOUTT project's partners in Malawi are designing and testing an innovative solar-ceramic water filtration system capable of providing local communities with a reliable source of clean water at the household level.

This conference will bring together relevant stakeholders including researchers, policy makers and regulators to identify and discuss the main scientific challenges for harvesting and enhancing the benefits of a sound environment for human health and the scientific challenges for solutions to overcome environmental threats to human health.

The main outcome will be recommendations on research and innovation priorities for the EU and Member States to work together to protect human health and our planet.

This event is co-organised by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare, the Finnish Environment Institute and the European Commission under the auspices of Finland’s Presidency of the EU in 2019.

The European Commission’s Directorates-General for Research and Innovation (RTD) and for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (CNECT) are hosting the workshop ‘Cross-border Innovation Procurement in Health: EU funding opportunities & best practices’.

Designing, procuring and deploying innovative solutions is an important component of every public sector modernisation strategy, especially in the health and care sector. However, the EU health service providers face many challenges, such as funding, a fragmented legal framework, lack of common standards or interoperability and varying user/patient preferences across the EU.

Through this workshop, we expect to attract a representative audience (procurers, potential suppliers, regions or umbrella organisations and regulators) to discuss how such challenges can be addressed through existing EU Innovation Procurement instruments in the area of health, such as Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) and Public Procurement of Innovative solutions (PPI). We will present the new PCP & PPI funding opportunities for 2020 and discuss how to best design and implement successful projects. A networking session is foreseen during the event.

ImageA smart robotic exoskeleton developed by an EU-funded project will help prevent lower back pain and provide relief to millions of people who suffer from the debilitating condition, one of the main causes of worker absenteeism worldwide.
ImageEU-funded researchers have developed new computer simulations for routinely redesigning enzymes - an approach that could speed up medicine production and help make the pharmaceutical industry more eco-friendly.
ImageAn EU-funded project has made a breakthrough in medical imaging. By developing a photon-counting detector for CT scanners, higher-resolution images with lower radiation doses can be produced for accurate non-invasive screening and diagnosis of diseases.
ImageSpices have been used in food and traditional medicine for millennia. But a new interpretation of 'SPICES' is coming to mitigate cardiovascular risk factors in carefully selected sites in parts of sub-Saharan Africa and Europe... the international research kind.
