Severe winters combined with heat waves and droughts during summer in Europe. Those were the consequences as the Atlantic Ocean heat transport nearly collapsed 12,000 years ago. The same situation might occur today, according to a new study published in Nature Communications.
Researchers at Stockholm University have developed a method to multiply the lifespan of nickel-metal hydride batteries. This means that the batteries can handle a great many more charging cycles without losing capacity. The new method also means that the batteries can easily be restored once they have begun to wear out, unlike other rechargeable batteries that must be melted down for recycling.

The fact that the world’s populations are living ever longer places new demands on society. The ageing population is without doubt one of the grand challenges for the 21st century. To tackle these challenges will require a new breed of interdisciplinary researchers, who have been trained to work on the topic within a number of different disciplines within science and the humanities. That is the goal of NEWBREED, an EU co-funded doctoral programme at Örebro University in Sweden.
ECMWF presents the second Edition of the ECMWF’s Summer of Weather Code (ESoWC) 2019, an initiative to promote innovative weather-related open-source software. Developers from all over the world are invited to submit a proposal to solve one of the new challenges addressed by ECMWF’s mentors this year. Only the five best submissions will win £5000 each and the opportunity to develop their projects under the umbrella of ECMWF expertise.
CIC nanoGUNE is opening the call to select Master's students to do their projects in one of its 10 research groups. Those interested will be able to gain expertise in various subjects in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, ranging from nanooptics to nanomaterials or nanoengineering geared towards biomedical applications.
In a recent article published in Nanoscale, researchers from the Nanomagnetism group at nanoGUNE demonstrate the use of hybrid magnetic-plasmonic elements to facilitate contactless and selective temperature control in magnetic functional metamaterials.
Disposing of agricultural waste is an expensive and complicated issue for many farmers. But now a number of innovative companies are turning this waste into clothes for us to wear.
The main objective of the European project DREAM, which is funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, is the development and demonstration of a new series of technological innovations for the purpose of being implemented both in new generation kilns and conventional ceramic tile kilns, to enable significant progress in the sustainability of ceramic processes.
A project developed by researchers of Valencia’s Polytechnic University will help decrease the vulnerability of critical buildings such as hospitals, schools or passenger terminals.
