ERCIM/W3C is participating in HRADIO (Hybrid Radio everywhere for everyone), a new EU-funded project (Innovation Action) that started in September 2017. It focuses on radio service innovations enabled by convergence. While radio, with its rich editorial content, remains a highly popular medium, listening figures are slowly declining, particularly among youngsters. With the rapid rise of smartphones, radio faces competition from many new services including music steaming platforms. Regular radio today often does not include attractive features as known from online platforms. And if present, they are mostly not well integrated with the actual radio programme. This is where HRADIO will deliver.

ERCIM offers fellowships for PhD holders from all over the world. Topics cover most disciplines in Computer Science, Information Technology, and Applied Mathematics. Fellowships are of 12 months duration, spent in one ERCIM member institute. Fellowships are proposed according to the needs of the member institutes and the available funding.

A European project can be a richly rewarding tool for pushing your research or innovation activities to the state-of-the-art and beyond. Through ERCIM, our member institutes have participated in more than 80 projects funded by the European Commission in the ICT domain, by carrying out joint research activities while the ERCIM Office successfully manages the complexity of the project administration, finances and outreach.
