Creative and talented: nurturing Europe's next generation of scientists and building and inclusive, innovative society for the future
The special feature in this issue of Research*EU results magazine is entitled ‘Creative and talented: nurturing Europe’s next generation of scientists and building an inclusive, innovative society for the future’. The feature articles cover several projects funded by the European Research Council (ERC) under the ‘Ideas’ programme of FP7, which supports fundamental research by some of Europe’s most outstanding scientists and includes a budget line specifically for younger researchers — the ERC Starting Grant. In particular, in our interview in this issue we talk to Dr Davide Iannuzzi who has been ‘Diving into the world of the very small’ with the help of an ERC Starting Grant.
The regular ‘energy and transport’ section lifts off with the article ‘New motor can cut space exploration costs’. This ‘Micro electro mechanical system’ (MEMS), developed by an FP7-funded project, will help smaller satellites adjust their orbits cost effectively.
The ‘environment and society’ section starts with ‘Innovative pellets to benefit organic farmers’, the story of the development of new fertilisers based on the by-products of bio-gas facilities.
The opening article of the ‘IT and telecommunications’ section is ‘Open access: EU project results go public’. This explains how the OpenAIRE project is making sure that the results from all EU-funded research are made accessible, and not lost to other scientists or the wider public. The ‘industrial technologies’ section starts with ‘Invisibility field cloak a reality’ — the story of Slovak and Spanish electrical engineers’ success in developing a prototype ‘invisibility cloak’ that uses superconductors and ferromagnetic materials to hide objects from the prying eyes of electromagnetic fields.
