The European Commission publishes a monthly round-up of research project results – research*eu
The July feature is – The Grand Plan for Carbon Capture
This month the highlights pertinent to BU include:
If you have an EU funded project coming to an end, with results to share, why not think about sharing this? Get in touch with the editorial team to request an article, free of charge, as part of the European Commission’s support for dissemination and exploitation of research results.
Copies of this magazine are placed in the Talbot Campus Staff Centre – for reference only, as copies are limited.
Do you want to work collaboratively with researchers across Europe?
EIPs act across the whole research and innovation chain, bringing together all relevant actors at EU, national and regional levels in order to: (i) step up research and development efforts; (ii) coordinate investments in demonstration and pilots; (iii) anticipate and fast-track any necessary regulation and standards; and (iv) mobilise ‘demand’ in particular through better coordinated public procurement to ensure that any breakthroughs are quickly brought to market.
The current EIPs are:
But what if your discipline is not within one of these topics?
Then take a look at CORDIS.
Here you can search for your topic of interest and find out, amongst other important project information, what has been funded before, results from this previous research and who was involved in the project, which may direct you towards potential partners for future collaborative working. For certain topics, there are also thematic Results Packs, including Securing cyberspace and Independent Living.
If you are thinking of applying to a funding call, from the EU or otherwise, CORDIS might assist by sparking a idea based on a previous project, help you assess the state-of-the-art or inform your choice of potential partners.
Whatever your research interests, check out CORDIS!
Help is also available to BU staff – please contact Emily Cieciura in RKEO to discuss your EU and International funding requirements.
Every month the European Commission publishes research*eu, their round-up of the latest news from research projects funded by their various schemes.
The following highlights will be of interest to academics at BU:
October 2016 (Special feature: What we can learn from insects?)
November 2016 (Special feature: Shaping the future of offshore wind)
By taking a look at these items and the many others reported in research*eu, you may find potential partners or spark ideas for future research collaboration. In addition, CORDIS, the European Commission’s primary portal for results of EU-funded research projects, provides a wealth of information to assist you when building a new project.
If you are considering applying for EU funding, please contact Emily Cieciura, RKEO’s Research Facilitator: EU & International, to discuss your ideas!
I love reading about research and one of the publications that is on my lunch-time reading list is research*EU. This publication brings together short summaries of projects funded by the EU. One thing which often comes to mind is how often I see research that is relevant to BU’s research areas. Each of the summaries has a link to the CORDIS (Community Research and Development Information Service) record for the project which gives access to publicly available reports, articles and, importantly, the project partners. As of July 2015, this now includes information regarding Horizon 2020 projects.
Here are some examples from the current edition, with a focus on Seas and Oceans: Studying earth’s final frontier, that are relevant to BU:
- ARROWS: ARchaeological RObot systems for the World’s Seas – CORDIS / Project Website
- REMPARK: empowering patients and improving treatment of Parkinson’s disease – CORDIS / Project Website
- POVCON: Poverty in the face of conflict – CORDIS
- INTERMODAL BIKE: Multi-modal integration of cycling mobility through product and process innovations in bicycle design – CORDIS / Project Website
- FISHMETABOLOME: Fishing for markers of effluent exposure using metabolomics CORDIS
- METIS2020: Mobile and wireless communications Enablers for Twenty-twenty (2020) Information Society – CORDIS / Project Website
Why not take a look at projects on CORDIS so that you can focus your academic network development on the key players in your field? Can you take a project forward to the next level?
CORDIS is not just a record of existing projects, though. You can also search for partners, advertise your area of expertise to others or find partners in a particular location. There is also a News and Events section for you to explore.
You can find out more about CORDIS via YouTube videos:
The EC has set up a new page on its Community Research and Development Information Service (CORDIS) website with an overview of projects funded under the Framework Programme.
The new webpage shows which projects have been funded both under FP7 and previous Framework programmes and will provide a broader range of material to a wider audience. The new depository will include:
- project details such as description, funding, programme;
- project results such as documents, reports, summaries;
- multimedia; and
- information and details on project participants.
This will be a key resource for you to find future collaborators – take a look at who has been funded before and get in contact with them 🙂
