Science and technology touch almost every part of our daily lives. The food we eat, the medicines we take and healthcare we receive, transport, communications, protecting our environment, how we work and how we play: the list is endless! This is why each year the European Union is helping scientists, researchers and innovators from across Europe to work together. Because by working together we can achieve more. Today, the EU is funding thousands of active projects involving scientists, technologists and engineers. This short booklet highlights just a few examples of the impact their work is having on our daily lives.
