Regenerative medicine: from new insights to new applications

Specific Challenge: Regenerative medicine offers hope for untreatable disease and the ageing population, improved quality of life and reduced medical costs. However, so far, regenerative medicine has not yet proved itself in the clinic beyond rare diseases or conditions of limited public health importance. With recent scientific discoveries opening up new approaches to regenerative medicine, Read more about Regenerative medicine: from new insights to new applications[…]

Microfluidic chip for analysis of single cells

A few little cells that are different from the rest can have a big effect. For example, individual cancer cells may be resistant to a specific chemotherapy—causing a relapse in a patient who would otherwise be cured. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, scientists have now introduced a microfluidics-based chip for the manipulation and subsequent nucleic-acid analysis Read more about Microfluidic chip for analysis of single cells[…]

Why trust should play a crucial part in the development of intelligent machines for medical therapies

In future decades the need for effective strategies for medical rehabilitation will increase significantly, because patients’ rate of survival after diseases with severe functional deficits, such as a stroke, will increase. Socially assistive robots (SARs) are already being used in rehabilitation for this reason. In the journal Science Robotics, a research team led by neuroscientist Read more about Why trust should play a crucial part in the development of intelligent machines for medical therapies[…]

Transitioning to automated flight systems generate new flight paths over populated areas

Health costs associated with noise from changing flight patterns over populated urban landscapes far outweigh the benefits of reduced flight times, according to a new study conducted at Columbia University‘s Mailman School of Public Health and Queens Quiet Skies. The researchers used flights from LaGuardia airport that have historically flown over Flushing Meadows and the Read more about Transitioning to automated flight systems generate new flight paths over populated areas[…]

Skyrmions pave the way to new data storage

Nanosized magnetic particles called skyrmions are considered highly promising candidates for new data storage and information technologies. Now, physicists have revealed new behaviour involving the antiparticle equivalent of skyrmions in a ferromagnetic material. The researchers demonstrated their findings using advanced computer simulations that can accurately model magnetic properties of nanometre-thick materials. The results are published Read more about Skyrmions pave the way to new data storage[…]

Autonomous Vehicle World Congress China 2018

In April 2018, the Ministry of Transport, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the Ministry of Public Security jointly issued‘ Intelligent & Connected Vehicles Road Test Management Regulation’, which is the first to regulate the autonomous vehicles road test from national level. Automatic driving with the purpose of security must be completed through Read more about Autonomous Vehicle World Congress China 2018[…]

How to determine the photocatalytic effectiveness of surfaces more accurately and quickly

In combination with the right materials, sunbeams can work wonders: they clean building facades and decompose pollutants from the air or in the water. The magic word is photocatalysis. In practice, though, the effectiveness of this „miracle cure“ fluctuates greatly, depending on the material used and the environmental factors. With a new measuring device, researchers Read more about How to determine the photocatalytic effectiveness of surfaces more accurately and quickly[…]

FOCUS ON THE FUTURE OF SPACE TRANSPORTATION: ESA’S CALL FOR IDEAS

ESA is calling for ideas that will shape the future of space transportation services – to space, in space and returning from space. “The changing world we live in requires a space agency to anticipate. Now is the time for ESA to reach out to our citizens in the Member States and listen to their Read more about FOCUS ON THE FUTURE OF SPACE TRANSPORTATION: ESA’S CALL FOR IDEAS[…]

Research and innovation network of governmental users of secure satellite communications

Specific Challenge: Satellite communications is an important tool for public authorities active in domains such as border surveillance and management, crisis and disaster management, detecting and monitoring forest fires, monitoring and controlling illegal activities, protection of critical infrastructures, and humanitarian aid. This is particularly the case when ground-based communication links are damaged (e.g. earthquakes, hurricanes), Read more about Research and innovation network of governmental users of secure satellite communications[…]

EU Fund CALL – Optimising manufacturing and system operation
