The European Commission has released two multilingual educational toolkits to help fight gender stereotypes when discovering and choosing careers. The two toolkits cover the learning ages of primary and secondary school and they use the example of the transport sector to show a rapidly changing and expanding sector that will need to employ highly skilled workers, regardless of gender.
Engineers are currently exploring a shift towards integrated modular avionics (IMA), leading to better optimisation of the hardware. With this goal in sight, the Harmonised Amphenol Radiall Project (HARP) has developed a range of TRL 6 connectors for Line Replaceable Modules (LRM). These connectors can support the development of a lighter, more cost-efficient modular solution which will bring overall aircraft weight and fuel consumption savings.
Enabling road vehicle automation requires addressing ICT challenges related to connectivity, data management, cybersecurity and ICT infrastructure architectures. The EU-funded ICT4CART project created an architecture which ensured that autonomous vehicles will contribute to and extract information from all this data in an intelligent, interoperable and secure way.
Energy-intensive industries are seeking novel cleantech solutions to achieve ambitious sustainability goals. Electrolysis has a key role to play. The green hydrogen produced from electrolysis shows promise in replacing fossil fuels and lowering CO2 emissions. Thanks to the EU-funded MultiPLHY project, we are one step closer to making this a reality.
With the support of the Commission, EU associations, companies, organisations, trade unions, universities, training providers and national federations set up a new partnership for skills in the digital ecosystem. This new partnership will enable the upskilling and reskilling of workers and attract more people to the digital industry. The partnership will help people and businesses acquire necessary digital skills, which will contribute to the objectives of the digital and green transitions of Europe's economy.
The Commission has officially launched the Alliance for Zero Emission Aviation, calling on the members of the aviation community to join forces in preparing for the advent of zero emission aircraft. The Alliance for Zero Emission Aviation aims to prepare the aviation ecosystem for the entry into service of hydrogen- and electric-powered aircraft, to ensure that air transport contributes to Europe's 2050 climate neutrality objective.
For the average citizen, 5G may seem like the last frontier, but experts are already planning for the next phase – the sixth generation of wireless communication networks, or 6G. One of the pioneering candidate technologies for 6G networks are RISs, which are investigated in a recent study conducted with partial support from the EU-funded RISE-6G project.
The friendly skies are not always so friendly, with volcanoes suddenly spewing ash or sandstorms blown kilometres into the atmosphere. To mitigate the effects of future atmospheric adverse events on passengers, airports, airlines and aeroplanes, the EU-funded ICE4ATM project has delivered pioneering high-performance computing software by the same name.
Passenger and freight transport generate around a quarter of Europe’s total carbon emissions. The DTEU project, an EU-funded project, has developed a suite of advanced models for Europe's transport sector, to provide detailed quantitative evidence of the impact of CO2 mitigation measures, to help policymakers reach the European Commission’s carbon emission goals for the sector.
EIT Food, EIT Manufacturing and EIT Urban Mobility join forces in SUPERNOVAS to bring more women into the entrepreneurship ecosystem. The EIT is proud to empower woman-led start-ups, supporting women to access early-stage funding and inspire role models across the sector.It will deliver four activities: Identifying start-ups and match them with young women from STEAM careers; Support entrepreneurs to entry a new European market; Aim to help women with STEAM University studies start their careers in venture investment; and Offer EIT community women access to a broad network and training opportunities.
The EU-funded TEESMAT project sought to address bottlenecks early in the development of new battery innovations, by providing easy access to such knowledge and techniques, and by building up expertise through the sharing of best practices and results. This was achieved by bringing together those offering cutting-edge characterisation techniques and expertise with industrial players in the battery field.
EPOMM is the European Platform on Mobility Management, a network of governments in European countries that are engaged in Mobility Management (MM).
They are represented by the Ministries that are responsible for MM in their countries. EPOMM is organised as an international non profit organisation with seat in Brussels (BE).
