Tecnalia designs an app to help elderly people get around on public transport

Δευ, 28/07/2014 - 09:49

Getting around in a town or city is a necessity in order to carry out everyday tasks. With the advancing years the tendency is to abandon the private vehicle and make increasing use of public transport. However, knowing which is the most convenient bus to get to the centre or when you have to change buses is not always a straightforward task.

Ascertaining low-dose radiation impact on the heart

Παρ, 25/07/2014 - 09:49

We are all exposed to radiations. Such exposure can be harmless at very low doses but damage our health above certain thresholds. But what happens in between is more difficult to predict. The PROCARDIO project is casting light on part of this mystery, with a focus on radiation-induced heart disease.

Fuel cells for powering homes

Δευ, 21/07/2014 - 08:59

The UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country is exploring the suitability of materials to improve fuel cells as an alternative to the electrical grid.

One of the applications that fuel cells may have is the supplying of homes with electrical power. When considering applications of this type that call for greater power, a research group in the UPV/EHU’s department of Mineralogy and Petrology has studied the use of one type of material, perovskites, for the design of these cells.

Trending science: Researchers unveil 'super black' material

Παρ, 18/07/2014 - 09:47

Scientists have developed a material so dark that when you look at it, it's like staring into a black hole. The material, made of carbon nanotubes, is another step in the scientific quest which began in the 1990s to create the blackest of blacks.

The economic benefits of sustainable forestry in the Mediterranean region

Πέμ, 17/07/2014 - 09:07

Mediterranean forests provide local communities with a diverse range of products such as wood, fodder for livestock and plants and game, all of which contribute to food security and help to alleviate poverty in rural regions. However, these forests will be one of the most affected ecosystems in the near future as temperatures increase and rains decrease. In order to avoid the Mediterranean region turning into a desert, expert forest management is required.

Solar modules embedded in glass

Δευ, 14/07/2014 - 09:20

Organic solar modules have advantages over silicon solar cells. However, one critical problem is their shorter operating life. Researchers are working on a promising solution: they are using flexible glass as a carrier substrate that better protects the components.

Telemedicine for patients with chronic liver diseases

Δευ, 14/07/2014 - 09:19

Although telemedicine could improve the quality of life of patients with chronic liver diseases, viable home care systems are still lacking. Scientists working on the EU-project “d-LIVER” mean to remedy this situation. Initial results have now been released.

Fast building inspection from the air

Δευ, 14/07/2014 - 09:17

Many buildings in Germany are in need of renovation. The reasons for this are often aging building structures and environmental influences. In the future, flying inspection robots will be able to accelerate and simplify inspections, thus reducing the safety risk.

New stem cell therapy for ischaemic heart disease

Παρ, 11/07/2014 - 10:20

An EU-funded project is looking into 'Cardiac stem cells' (CSCs) to tackle the problem of chronic heart failure in Europe. Whilst previous research has concentrated on cells from the patients themselves, the CARE-MI team focuses on cells from various donors. Clinical trials are expected as soon as summer 2014 in Spain and Belgium.

EU funded project, TRACE, examines human trafficking as a criminal enterprise

Τετ, 09/07/2014 - 12:46

Trafficking in human beings is a serious human rights violation and combating this crime remains a priority in Europe today.

TRACE (Trafficking As a Criminal Enterprise), is a EU funded project that started in May 2014 and will run for two years, until April 2016. TRACE consists of a multi-disciplinary team from across Europe who will develop state-of-the-art knowledge on the business of human trafficking in an effort to support stakeholders in their fight against this crime.

Designing ultra-sensitive biosensors for early personalised diagnostics

Τετ, 09/07/2014 - 12:45

A new type of high-sensitivity and low-cost sensors, called plasmonic biosensors, could ultimately become a key asset in personalised medicine by helping to diagnose diseases at an early stage.

Efficient thermal cooling and heating

Τετ, 09/07/2014 - 12:43

Thermal systems use heat to produce cold, and vice versa. To do so, a material is needed that can dissipate water vapor particularly well and quickly. A new method simply applies this property as a layer onto the components.

EU-project calls for greater coordination on coastal issues

Τετ, 09/07/2014 - 12:42

The Mediterranean is in need of uniform criteria and methods for delineating its coastlines, according to Professor Rachelle Alterman of the EU-funded Mare Nostrum project. Professor Alterman is calling on the governments of EU countries to establish a task force that will work towards achieving greater legal and cadastral coordination among EU countries on coastal issues.

New software brings the right wind farm to the right spot

Τρί, 01/07/2014 - 09:35

Wind farms are springing up all across Europe, covering some 8 % of the EU's electricity needs in 2013 according to the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA). But several drawbacks have so far prevented this share from growing as much as it could: most notably, citizens have complained about the noise, disturbances in telecommunications or the impact on ecosystems. But what if a single piece of software could solve all these problems?
