Since 1991 some 892 projects directly or indirectly impacting diabetic patients have been funded, with research work including novel treatments, beta-cell imaging technologies, artificial pancreases, immunotherapies and solutions to counter diabetes side-effects. This edition of the research*eu results magazine focuses on some of the latest results brought about thanks to these EU-funded initiatives. These include research specifically focused on diabetes such as innovative footwear, an app to scan food for carbohydrate levels and new RNA diagnostics to predict diabetes occurrence and design... exercise plans to fight it, but also broader food-related innovation that could be beneficial to diabetic patients. A total of 10 projects are covered in the special feature section of this magazine. This section is followed by our usual insights into biology and medicine, social sciences and humanities, energy and transport, environment and society, IT and telecommunications, industrial technologies and space, as well as a new section fully dedicated to security research.
