Using real-world data from two European countries, scientists have found that a certain type of drug prescribed to lower blood pressure may actually increase the risk of cardiac arrest.
ATMOSPHERE put together a survey for European and Brazilian Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) experts on what the next priority topics that Europe and Brazil focus on in the next decade should be. This will be the basis for a Report ATMOSPHERE is preparing, entitled "Final Research & Innovation Research Priorities Report", which will be shared also with the European Commission and the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation.
The CURSOR project will devise an innovative system using drones, miniaturized robots and advanced sensors to speed up the location of disaster victims trapped under debris while reducing risk for search-and-rescue teams and first responders.
Up to 2000 institutions invited to comprehensively landscape national infrastructures.
The term smart cities mainly refers to the field of technology. Some fear that the intelligent cities of the future will be massively robotic, with algorithms dominating people. Hence the need for more citizen engagement in designing the digital revolution of their urban spaces.
Researchers have developed a new engine that has low consumption and high efficiency, and which decreases the emissions of contaminating particles by over 80% compared to current legal limits.
ESSIAL is a research project funded by the European Commission "Factory of the Future" programme. The ambition of ESSIAL is to develop tailor-made processes to improve the performance and functionalities of ferromagnetic steels in order to reduce energy consumption and noise, while reducing the overall cost and facilitating the recycling.
An additional SEK 20 million is invested by the Government in developing a national competence platform and further training in artificial intelligence. Umeå University, which has a prominent research within AI in healthcare and forest industry, is one of seven universities participating. The initiative enables a strengthened supply of skills in northern Sweden.
The precise thickness of ultra-thin films of light-emitting plastics is important for their brightness. By layering two plastic films on top of each other, and writing in one of the films with a sharp stylus, light-emitting patterns like for example a signature can be created. Mattias Lindh, who has studied the operation of light-emitting electrochemical cells, writes this in his PhD thesis.
The European CBRNE Center at Umeå University and the Department of Foreign Affairs have co-hosted a United Nations Office of Disarmament Affairs (UNODA) training course in leadership skills for weapons inspectors, together with the British organisation The Ambassador Partnership.
