Coronavirus: €128 million granted on research to address pressing needs 
and the socio-economic impact of the pandemic
The Commission is supporting 23 new research projects with a total of 
€128 million to address the continuing coronavirus pandemic and its 
effects. The 23 projects involve 344 research teams from 39 countries, 
including 32 participants from 15 countries outside of the EU. The 
funding will enable researchers to strengthen and adapt industrial 
capacity to manufacture and deploy equipment such as ventilators, to 
prevent and treat coronavirus, to develop medical technologies and 
digital tools ...

Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, 
Education and Youth said:

/This research is essential to better address various aspects of this 
and future pandemics, from the capacity to react more quickly to prevent 
contagion, to improving diagnosis and treatment, to better mitigation 
measures that take into account behavioural, social and economic 
aspects, including gender-related issues./

How hybrid electric and fuel aircraft could green air travel

With air traffic set to increase 5% every year until 2030, scientists 
are looking at how to make aeroplanes more sustainable. But with current 
batteries making electric aircraft far too heavy, hybrid fuel and 
electric models could point the way forward for greener air travel - and 
could become airborne within 15 years.
