Behind the Scenes

by European Commission

Welcome to our ‘Behind the Scenes’ podcasts dedicated to EU research and innovation. In this series, journalist Jennifer Baker spends time with some of Europe’s most brilliant scientists and innovators, whose discoveries are having a lasting and important impact on our daily lives.


From Atlantic ocean health checks, pioneering cancer vaccines and quantum computing games to zero-waste houses, new-breed organic farming, and recycling textile. These and other compelling stories await listeners in our latest pods.   


Earlier in the series to celebrate the annual Research & Innovation Days we explored everything from the inner-secrets of biophysics, fungal architectures, robotics and automatic control, and we ventured to the outer-reaches of Arctic research, radio astronomy, and computer engineering.


Behind the Scenes SEASON TWO brings you inspiring science but also the stories and journeys of the people behind them.


This podcast series is an initiative of the European Commission. It brings together policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs and the public to debate and shape the future of Research and Innovation in Europe and beyond.
