Emergency admission predicted with AI
Machine learning can be used to analyse electronic health records and predict the risk of emergency hospital admissions.
Using machine learning and optimization to improve refugee integration
Each year, tens of thousands of refugees--many fleeing war, violence, and persecution--are resettled in dozens of host countries around the world. While there is growing evidence that the initial placement of refugee families profoundly affects their lifetime outcomes, there have been few attempts to use technology to optimize resettlement destinations.

Battery research to help super-charge electric vehicle revolution
The University of Bath is part of a consortium of academic and industry partners awarded Government funding to conduct research aimed at overcoming battery challenges to accelerate the electric vehicle revolution.
High-performance OLED microdisplays for next-generation smart glasses
A consistent trend across the tech sector is the one-upmanship of increasingly high screen resolution and larger display size. Yet, the fact that the former increases faster than the latter means that manufacturers must achieve ever-higher pixel density. Large OLED microdisplays developed under the LOMID project could help solve that problem, thereby providing Europe with a competitive edge.
