Special Feature: Helping the 5 in 10000 innovative therapies against rare diseases
Up to 36 million Europeans are right now, as you read these words, afflicted by one of around 6 000 conditions classified as rare diseases. In anticipation of the globally-marked Rare Disease Day on 28 February, we wanted to shine a light on some of the most exciting EU-funded research being carried out to find treatments and therapies to help those patients coping with life-changing rare conditions.
Meanwhile, in our Project of the Month feature, we’re showcasing the winner of the extremely prestigious Innovation Radar prize which was awarded during the European Commission’s ICT 2018 conference in Vienna that took place in December 2018. Even though we didn’t win the fight for a front row seat, CORDIS was actually there in Vienna to soak up the ambience and energy as the winner was announced (and we had a great time!).
In this month’s Life After we catch up with the VALCRI project that has developed a highly promising criminal intelligence analysis system that utilises the latest advances in Big Data.
