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.

Fredrik Almqvist, Professor in organic chemistry at Umeå University, and his American research colleague Christina Stallings, receive SEK 24 million from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for research for combating infections of the most common type of tuberculosis bacteria.
Since we can’t exactly ‘look under the hood’ anymore on all the digital things we use in everyday life, how do we know what these things are actually doing? And why do they seem to know so much about us anyway? A recent Wallenberg Foundation grant of SEK 4.5 million has been awarded to Umeå Institute of Design’s Heather Wiltse and Johan Redström to try to answer some of these questions.
Imagine a future where food waste has become a key source of energy instead of adding to our carbon footprint. What if billions of expectant mothers in developing countries could get access to safe surgery during childbirth? Could it be that we already know what space tourism will look like in 2040? On May 31– June 1, graduates present their degree projects at Umeå Institute of Design’s yearly exhibition, UID18 - Design Talks & Degree Show.
