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.
New study shows connections between global environmental degradation and tax havens published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. On average 68% of all investigated foreign capital to sectors associated with deforestation of the Amazon rainforest was transferred through tax havens. 70% of the known fishing vessels involved in illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing are, or have been, registered in tax havens. Loss of tax revenue caused by tax havens should be considered as indirect subsidies to economic activities with detrimental environmental consequences.
The training will enable technical staff of partners operating ODYSSEA observatories to learn how to use the innovative glider ahead of the summer launch of operations in the eastern and southern Mediterranean Sea.
Beginning of March, all mySMARTLife partners and representatives from the mySMARTLife Cities’ Network met in Nantes with the aim to learn from one another and to join a study tour on mobility innovation.
Along with two other European reference regions – Saxony in Germany, and Lapland in Finland – the Spanish region Andalusia is participating in the EU-funded INFACT project which aims at combining the development and test of innovative, non-invasive mineral exploration technologies with an assessment of their social acceptance. A data acquisition campaign is scheduled at different sites in Andalusia for April 2019.
