Success stories

High Frequency Technology, Microwaves
German a nd Israeli industrial R&D teams have pulled off a flying feat with their innovative bespoke radar system to help helicopter pilots navigate even the most difficult conditions. Successful test-flights demonstrated the system in action at low altitudes. Refits to the sensor hardware are now under way to make the radar fully flight-ready. As an innovation frontrunner, the stakes are high.

Telecommunications
The Celtic-Plus SIGMONA project has pioneered novel software-defined networking (SDN) to give mobile network operators greater flexibility in responding to the explosive growth of mobile devices and cloud computing. Positive results will also help European operators prepare for the roll-out of 5G mobile technology.

Telecommunications
The Celtic-Plus GOLD project has brought next generation broadband technology closer to market, inspired cutting edge research and created a whole new industrial ecosystem. What’s more, millions of consumers stand to benefit through faster internet access at a fraction of the cost.

Furnace technology, construction of heating boilers
A Czech start-up has applied for a patent on a system that re-uses car exhaust energy and its CEO showcasing it on a motorised surfboard.

Paper technology
Saica, a family-owned Spanish paper and packaging business, developed a cost-effective, ‘green’ solution to meet growing demand for white-grade top-coated paper (testliners). Thanks to EUREKA pre-market support, that technology is now being applied at a new production plant.

Telecommunications
By building on the developments made in previous Celtic-Plus projects in the same domain (WiSafeCar and CarLink), CoMoSeF managed to develop 23 new products that make driving under extreme weather conditions safer.
Construction workers building a high rise

Civil engineering
A German engineering firm and spin-off of the University of Karlsruhe has teamed up with the Technical University of Dresden and a Greek software company to develop an innovative and commercially viable code that simulates the results of wind-induced loads on high-rises.
