Special Feature- Increasingly smart, increasingly sustainable: Europe's cities get an upgrade


In this issue of Research*EU Magazine, we're showcasing EU-funded projects that are using the very best new technologies have to offer to find durable and clean solutions to making our cities that little bit more pleasant.

Meanwhile, Project of the Month is celebrating the European contribution to a story that was arguably one of the most significant scientific discoveries of the century thus far – the first ever image of a real black hole.

EU Agenda gives you the lowdown on some of the best conferences and events featuring EU-funded projects taking place before the summer slowdown begins.
