• Singapore: A global-Asia gateway for R&D and innovation

    Home to world-class innovations like the Supertree Grove in the Gardens by the Bay, one of the most iconic green city concepts of the past decade, Singapore is excelling in research, development and innovation. Each Supertree houses a diverse combination of plants and integrated cooling systems and solar panels that mean the structures have a surprisingly positive environmental impact. And just like the Supertrees, the small city state of Singapore is packed with a thriving R&D and innovation ecosystem of its own.

  • Korean Minister of Trade, Industry and Energy visits INSTER Spain to witness development of a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite communications terminal

    The Minister of Trade, Industry and Energy of Korea, H.E. Mr. Moon Sungwook, visited INSTER to learn about the progress of the development of a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite  communications terminal for NewSpace - a Eureka-supported R&D collaboration between Spain and South Korea.

    • The NewSpace concept, regarding LEO satellite constellations and its corresponding ground-based terminals and applications, emerges as a paradigm for high-bandwidth ubiquitous communications for the digital world, just as 5G is for terrestrial ones, a convergence between the two being expected.
    • This development is being carried out by the Spanish company INSTER, responsible for the antenna terminal, and the Korean companies ASAT and ETRI, responsible for the modem.
    • The Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) and its South Korean counterpart, the Korea Institute for the Advancement of Technology (KIAT), are funding this project under the Eureka program.
    • This project will position INSTER at the technological forefront of LEO satellite communications and will allow it to lead its deployment in cutting-edge fields such as connected and autonomous terrestrial and aerial vehicles or the extension of broadband communications in areas without coverage.
  • The Austrian Chairmanship concludes with a new Eureka (and a new Head for its Brussels Secretariat)

    The Eureka network and an engaged and energetic team at the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) overcame COVID-19-imposed obstacles to secure Eureka a place in the European Innovation Area.

  • New security for IoT networks

    Security breaches to internet of things (IoT) devices pose a major risk. Now, a new system uses artificial intelligence (AI) to secure IoT networks and alert users of threats. Luxembourg-based company HITEC Luxembourg S.A. and their R&D project partners are developing this security for a range of IoT applications.

  • Becoming Austrian of the year 2020, Dr. Jama Nateqi

    Dr. Jama Nateqi is one of the dynamos behind Symptoma: a world-leading artificial intelligence (AI) symptom checker with a +95% accuracy rate for over 20,000 diseases. We spoke to him to find out how he succeeded in realising a lifelong ambition to reduce misdiagnoses where so many other companies have failed.
