ImageUsing innovative nanotechnologies, an EU-funded project is developing more efficient and sustainable vaccine manufacturing processes. The cost of vaccines puts a brake on wider immunisation, so these new processes will find broad application - especially in developing economies.

Science Café with František Štěpánek is an unconventional open discussion with theme "Future of microscopic robots".

Prof. František Štěpánek is a recognized scientist in the field of chemical engineering. His research is focused on microscopic chemical robots that mimic single-cell organisms. One of the main drivers for the development of chemical robots is the area of oncology, and especially controlled and targeted delivery of chemotherapeutics to tumours, along with the related diagnostics and control.

Currently Prof. František Štěpánek leads the Chemical Robotics Laboratory at the University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague. In 2008, Prof. Štěpánek became the first ERC grantee in the Czech Republic.

Science Café is a forum for discussion of current work and interesting scientific issues. It aims to be informal and accessible. Anyone can participate; speaker is there to be questioned and to talk about his work.

Research team from the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement in France, led by Prof Alexandre Dumont, won the first €1 million Horizon Birth Day Prize for their work that has cut the number of deaths of new mothers in hospitals in Mali and Senegal by as much as a third.
Image of the airbag helmet on the female modelAn EU-funded project has created an airbag bike helmet that is eight times safer than its traditional counterparts. It is both comfortable and attractive in a bid to motivate more people to cycle responsibly.
Image of the oncologist with the tablet in his handsEU-funded researchers are developing a personalised dosing solution for chemotherapy targeting leukaemia using advanced microfluidic chips to meet the precise medical requirements of individual patients.

This two-day awareness session for international regulators and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) will give an insight into how the European medicines regulatory network works, the role of European Medicines Agency (EMA), scientific aspects of EMA's work and its interaction with scientific experts.

It will address topics including the role of experts and benefit-risk evaluation. It will also provide networking opportunities with academics, NGOs staff and regulators from and outside the European Union.

The event will be broadcast live. EMA will publish further material after the event

Image of Senior woman doing fitness exercices in front of tvAn EU-funded project has created easy-to-use, active computer games that can help build new nerve cell connections in stroke patients' brains and allow for a more flexible and cheaper home-based recovery.
image of microscopeBillions of euros are wasted ever year on research that is redundant, flawed, never published or poorly reported. The EU-funded project MIROR aims to reduce this waste and ensure money invested in medical research is well spent on achieving results that matter to people.
image of virtual kidneysAn EU-funded project has provided new hope for the 2 million people in Europe who suffer from rare kidney diseases thanks to groundbreaking research that has led to diagnostic tests and a new type of treatment.
