Digging out the secrets of black holes


This issue of the Research*EU Magazine examines the most recent black hole-related research made possible by EU funding. It then follows up with our usual thematic sections: health, society, energy, environment, aquatic resources, industry, information and communication technologies, security and fundamental research. The magazine closes with a list of upcoming events hosted by or involving EU-funded research projects.
