Events - 1st ECSEL JU Symposium - 13-14 June 2017, Portomaso, St. Julian's, Malta

Health and life sciences - Wed, 04/05/2017 - 02:00

A wide range of European and global stakeholders in the Electronics Components and Systems field, including Industry, Research and Financial Communities, European, National and Regional decision-makers and international partners will get together in Malta on 13/14 June 2017 in the background of our annual event.

This event aims to provide an unique opportunity and space for the ECSEL funded projects to present their progress and results to date, to disseminate the scientific and technological achievements, and to cast light on their contributions to the programme.

The event will run over two days:
Day 1 focuses on ECSEL JU projects’ results and achievements in key areas (e.g. Smart Health, Production, and Mobility and Semiconductor technology for IOT), while Day 2 is dedicated to a more strategic exchange featuring high-profile key note speeches and panel discussions.

This event is organised under the auspices of the 2017 Maltese Presidency of the Council of the European Union. High-level representatives from Malta have already accepted our invitation to elaborate on the role of Malta and its perspectives in the ECS sector.

Research Headlines - Connecting the dots for medical holography

Health and life sciences - Wed, 04/05/2017 - 02:00
No glasses, no headset, no smartphone - it is possible to produce 3D images that observers can view without cumbersome props. Base these displays on input from medical imaging devices and you could have the makings of a powerful new way to view patient scans. Holography holds the key, says an innovative SME that is developing this technology with EU support.

Research Headlines - Nearer to the neuron

Health and life sciences - Thu, 03/30/2017 - 02:00
Language, reasoning and learning are abilities powered by the neocortex, the folded grey matter on the outside of the brain. But how does its neuronal circuitry actually handle information? Using the example of syntax processing, new EU-funded research is exploring the physiological underpinnings of human cognition.

Success Stories - Replacing animal testing with cultured human cells

Health and life sciences - Tue, 03/28/2017 - 02:00
Scientists at the University of Luxembourg have engineered human brain tissue, created from stem cells. They think that this bioengineering can push the limits of their knowledge in biomedicine without having to use animals in lab testing. Lets meet scientists around Europe who are not short of ideas about how to reach this goal.
