Research Headlines - Moving wind farming into deeper waters
13 Oct 2019 at 5:00pm
Installing wind turbines in deeper waters is an interesting proposition as wind speeds tend to be higher and more consistent further out to sea. An EU-funded project has built a new type of foundation for turbines that overcomes most of the technical challenges and reduces the cost of offshore installation.
Research Headlines - A tiny battery solution with huge potential for Europe
30 Sep 2019 at 5:00pm
Pioneering EU-funded research on new solid-state batteries is paving the way for tiny yet powerful batteries for safer and better space applications. Industry partners are advancing with plans to commercialise the thin-film energy-storage technologies and processes at the heart of the project.

Research Headlines - A safe source of drinking water for rural Malawi
13 Aug 2019 at 5:00pm
The 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.
Research Headlines - Europe stands up to lead the solar-thermal electricity way
12 Aug 2019 at 5:00pm
All-too-often it takes global disasters or looming events to bring countries together for a common cause. Climate change is perhaps the biggest 'event' of this kind, an existential threat driving international research cooperation in a new sustainable solution called solar-thermal electricity (STE). But it takes leadership to forge such a grand alliance of scientists, engineers, technicians and companies prepared to back progress in this field. Europe stood up when it was needed.
Research Headlines - Reactor design to make nuclear waste less radioactive
8 Aug 2019 at 5:00pm
High-level nuclear waste includes long-lived and high-radiotoxic radionuclides. An EU-funded project helps to solve this issue by carrying out the research needed to build a facility that is capable of splitting material with long radioactive half-lives into radionuclide products with 1 000 times shorter half-lives.
Research Headlines - Newly discovered proteins boost booming biomaterials market
1 Aug 2019 at 5:00pm
EU-funded researchers have discovered new families of proteins and enzymes that will enable the development of novel plant-based biomaterials, potentially providing viable sustainable and renewable alternatives to plastics and other fossil-fuel-derived materials and chemicals.

28 Jul 2019 at 5:00pm
The European Commission is supporting a new European Joint research Programme on radioactive waste management, building on the far-reaching results of an EU-funded project that explored how best to pool resources, expertise and research and development efforts for the safe, efficient and secure treatment and storage of radioactive waste.
Research Headlines - Mimicking lizard skin to save energy on an industrial scale
24 Jul 2019 at 5:00pm
An EU-funded project is set to drive the commercial development of breakthrough laser-engineered products inspired by the unique skin and scale textures of animals and insects, potentially leading to entirely new applications across industry, energy and medicine.
Research Headlines - Propelling wind turbines further offshore
17 Jul 2019 at 5:00pm
An EU-funded project has developed an innovative substructure for wind turbines that dramatically cuts the cost of their installation in deep water. This could help harness wind energy further offshore.
Research Headlines - Solving the core cooling problem for safer nuclear energy
9 Jul 2019 at 5:00pm
Decay heat must be removed from the core of nuclear power stations. An EU-funded project demonstrated a reliable and efficient way of removing decay heat, without the need for external power sources, to enhance the safety of nuclear power plants even under potential (Fukushima-like) severe accident conditions.
