ULISES
This video presents the EU funded project ULISES. This project aims at developing a new nanotechnology-based treatment strategy where cancer cells that are invisible to the patient’s immune system are reprogrammed to become “visible”. This approach does not seek to alter the genetics of the cancer cells; rather it helps the immune system to recognise and attack these cells once they have been “flagged” as incompatible. ULISES is run by a consortium of 10 partners from 5 European countries led by the Spanish Institute for Biomedical Research August Pi i Sunyer (IDIBAPS) and includes important research centers, universities, SMEs, as well as Víctor Pallaruelo Santamaría (VPS), author of the Ulises project theoretical bases, and founder of the current consortium. Find out more on ULISES: https://ulises-project.eu/ And follow us on social media: https://twitter.com/ulises_eu https://www.linkedin.com/company/ulisesproject The video was produced by ULISES partner ICONS: http://www.icons.it/ Discover the other project partners here: https://ulises-project.eu/consortium/ ULISES has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 899708.

ICONS Innovation Stories
Internationally renowned for the stunning architecture of its City of Arts and Sciences, by local architect Santiago Calatrava, the Valencia (Spain) has been this year selected among the 100 European cities that will take up the challenge to become climate neutral by 2030. In the city, the famous Cabanyal district which had been home to a local fishing community for a long time, has recently been transformed into a testing ground for numerous energy efficiency techniques. These have been put into practice as part of MAtchUP, an EU-funded project that aims to create and scale up smart city solutions. With the video news release (VNR) recorded in Valencia, the project wants to show some of its key measures towards climate neutrality.
