CORDIS has launched the Top Stories service to highlight the achievements of EU-funded research projects, featuring success stories in the many domains of the EU Framework Programmes.
 
CORDIS Technology Offers have been rebranded as "Results in Brief" to provide multilingual overviews of all project outcomes.
 
FP6 and FP7 publishable summaries are published on CORDIS as "Report Summaries" documenting the progress of research as reported by project consortiums.
 
"Results in Brief" and "Report Summaries" are linked to the relevant project factsheet as part of an enhanced Projects and Results Service, incorporating the content of the Technology Marketplace.
 
"Results in Brief" also form the core of the research*eu results magazine, available as a free subscription or e-book download.
 
CORDIS project factsheets link to all available open access scientific publications collected by OpenAIRE.
