CompBioMed: a European Commission funded Centre of Excellence, based at University College London, developing computational methods to speed up the discovery and design of new drugs, and ultimately combine patient data and modelling to determine the best treatment for patients quickly.
EUROCHAMP-2020: a Europe-wide network of 14 cloud chambers seeking to improve our understanding of air quality and its impact on human health.
Econic Technologies: an SME start-up that has commercialised an innovative catalyst technology that could have an environmental impact equivalent to taking two millions cars a year off the road.
RobOT: Fundamental, blue-skies research at the University of Liverpool is exploring computational modelling and robotics to develop better, faster ways of discovering new materials, with the project contributing to significant industrial investment in the city of Liverpool itself.
COST Action: EU funding has given early career researcher Dr Sara Kyne invaluable opportunities for career development and allowed her to establish a fruitful collaboration with the University of Groningen, Netherlands.
Smart Separations Ltd: Dr Hugo Macedo, a former Erasmus student, started London-based company Smart Separations Ltd, which employs 14 skilled scientists from all over the world. They have devised a cheaper, more efficient method for making reusable, recyclable microfilters with a wide variety of applications from air filtration to blood processing and antibody production.
ANB Sensors: ANB Sensors used a Horizon 2020 SME Instrument grant to carry out a feasibility study for sensors measuring the degree of alkalinity or acidity of water, which is important for environmental testing.
PharmaSea: an international collaboration led from the University of Aberdeen that is advancing treatments for conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and epilepsy and informing global policy on marine biodiversity.
ALG-AD Interreg: circular economy research into algal technologies that turn agricultural waste into food for livestock that can otherwise pollute waterways. This is a particular issue in Wales, which has a large farming sector.
NoNoMeCat: Marie Skłodowska-Curie funding enabled AstraZeneca to host a number of European researchers and collaborate with leaders in the field as part of a consortium looking at sustainable catalysis for clean energy production and the manufacture of pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals.
