Recently, Apolo’s team has reached this new record of efficiency in the labs of the French centre, CEA, thanks to a 8 cells in series module combining coating deposition techniques and laser patterning. The Perovskite solar cells are printable and flexible and allow a cheaper manufacturing. The project has the objective to reach module cost below 0.40€/Wp (Watt peak).
The study identifies a protein (HuR/ELAVL1) as key for the growth and metastasis of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumours. The findings indicate that inhibition of this protein represents a possible therapeutic target to attack this sarcoma that affects both children and adults. The study, led by Dr. Ashwin Woodhoo, Ikerbasque researcher at CIC bioGUNE, has been published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
Thanks to their prototype platform, researchers have taken a major step in improving the usability, flexibility and sustained performance of future supercomputers.
Small woodlands in farmland have more benefits for humans per area, compared to large forests according to a new study. The small woodlands, sometimes even smaller than a football field, can easily go unnoticed in agricultural landscapes. Yet, these small forest remnants can store more carbon in the topsoil layer, are more suitable for hunting activities and host fewer ticks than large forests.
The pollution of oceans and landscapes by plastic waste is increasing dramatically worldwide. Almost 100 international researchers, company representatives and political decision-makers from Europe came together virtually at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences on the initiative of the EU-funded research project BIO-PLASTICS EUROPE to discuss how research and the introduction of bio-based and biodegradable plastics can be advanced.
With a focus on sustainability and the possibilities of low-trophic species aquaculture, AquaVitae has released a promotional short film for the project's work.
The REINFORCE project, supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 SWAFS programme, has launched its new fully-developed website. This achievement has been possible thanks to the joint effort of a strong consortium of 11 partners, coordinated by EGO. The platform offers a user-friendly browsing experience for the project’s target groups, including potential citizens scientists, the scientific and research community, policy makers, social innovators and entrepreneurs, and the broad public.
EU-funded scientists successfully created silica nanoparticles that can revolutionise treatments for complex bone diseases. These tiny particles can trap in their pores biomolecules to fight osteoporosis, antibiotics to combat bone infections or life-saving toxins to attack bone cancer.
During the recent winter, a new researcher or doctoral student has appeared in the staff coffee room almost every week. There is a rapid expansion in computing science that is unparalleled at Umeå University. One of the reasons is the ongoing large investment in artificial intelligence (AI), autonomous systems and software.
