Compact and extremely small-scale incubator microscope to examine cells in time lapse

Τρί, 03/06/2014 - 08:29

Biologists and doctors rely heavily on incubators and microscopes. Now the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT has come up with a novel solution that combines the functions of both these tools in a compact and extremely small-scale system.

Production Technology for More Efficient Jet Engines

Δευ, 02/06/2014 - 10:17

Aircrafts have to be more efficient – a crucial point when it comes to the design of jet engines. However, in the design of the components, the engineers also need to consider whether these can be economically produced. Yet, a new process chain provides more design freedom and allows a more efficient production as well as repair processes.

Artificial lung the size of a sugar cube

Δευ, 02/06/2014 - 10:15

What medications can be used to treat lung cancer, and how effective are they? Until now, drug companies have had to rely on animal testing to find out. But in the future, a new 3D model lung is set to achieve more precise results and ultimately minimize – or even completely replace – animal testing.

User-led sustainable buildings

Δευ, 02/06/2014 - 10:13

Users' perspectives play a key role in low-energy building. Experts agree that the feedback from people living in energy efficient buildings could help to optimise their overall usability.

Aircraft wings that change their shape in flight can help to protect the environment

Δευ, 02/06/2014 - 10:12

A top priority for any airline is to conserve as much fuel as possible – and this helps to protect the environment. The EU project SARISTU aims to reduce kerosene consumption by six percent, and integrating flexible landing devices into aircraft wings is one step towards that target. Researchers will be showcasing this concept alongside other prototypes at the ILA Berlin Air Show from May 20-25.

Research Alliance for Space

Δευ, 02/06/2014 - 10:10

Weather forecast, navigation or communication – in our daily life we depend on many functions of satellites. To tackle these and other challenges of unmanned space flights more effectively, 13 Fraunhofer institutes have now joined their expertise into the Space Alliance.

Mapping proteins in space and time within cells

Δευ, 02/06/2014 - 10:07

How many types of proteins are there in a cell? How many of each type are there and where are they at any given time? New methods may shed light on these fundamental biological questions.

An environmental standards information portal for Europe

Δευ, 02/06/2014 - 10:05

In Europe, we have a vast wealth of research results that support standards in relation to environmental aspects such as air, water, soil and waste. SIPE ('An environmental Standards Information Portal for Europe'), an EU-funded project, brings all these results together and combines them with information on standards and policies in a single dedicated web-based portal.

Torrefaction: the bioenergy newcomer

Δευ, 02/06/2014 - 10:02

Torrefaction - the slow roasting of biomass material to improve its energy content - has been touted as part of a solution for the large-scale implementation of bioenergy. The industry says that torrefaction technology is working and is available but uptake has not been as quick as expected. Experts, researchers and manufacturers gathered in Brussels earlier this month to discuss progress and prospects for torrefaction at the recent European Biomass Association (AEBIOM) conference.

Trending science: Researchers use HIV to fight HIV

Πέμ, 29/05/2014 - 09:33

Since the beginning of the HIV epidemic, almost 75 million people have been infected with the virus and about 36 million people have died of HIV. In 2012, a total of 29 000 new cases of HIV were reported in the EU and the European Economic Area. However, this week, media are reporting that researchers have discovered a method for using the virus as a tool in the fight against hereditary diseases - and in the long term, against HIV infection itself as well.

Security and Privacy? Now they can go hand in hand

Τετ, 28/05/2014 - 09:53

Online identification and authentication keeps transactions secure on the Internet, however this has also implications for your privacy. Disclosing more personal information than needed online when, say, you log in to your bank website may simplify the bank’s security at the cost of your privacy. Now, thanks to research by the EU-funded project Attribute-based Credentials for Trust ABC4Trust , there is a new approach that keeps systems secure and protects your identity.

EU-research 'clears' the way for high quality lakes and reservoirs

Τετ, 28/05/2014 - 09:50

The growth of blue-green algae in our lakes, large ponds, water reservoirs and public waters constitutes a problem for our environment and for our health. These types of algae often result in a deterioration of the water quality and emit a distinctly unpleasant odour. The algae consume a lot of oxygen in the water, leaving little for other animals like fish. They also produce toxins which can cause skin irritations and are suspected to be involved in the occurrence of liver cancer.

Bare electrodynamic tethers: thin as a rail, strong as a rock

Τετ, 28/05/2014 - 09:48

Satellite de-orbiting and re-entry is essential to halt the continuous increase in orbital space debris. The BETS project, which ends this month, is making waves with a new tether solution that is faster and more resistant to damage than any other existing technology.

Material simulation technology to boost EU aircraft industry

Τρί, 27/05/2014 - 09:35

Accurately predicting the mechanical behaviour of composite aircraft structures on impact could reduce the need for physical tests, cut industry costs and ultimately save lives through better aircraft design. This is the focus of the EU-funded CRASHING project, which aims to develop new methods of testing materials through multi-scale computer simulation.

The art of enrolling preterm babies in clinical trials

Τρί, 27/05/2014 - 09:34

Clinicians face the challenge of gaining informed consent from the parents of very small preterm babies in an ethical way without causing them unnecessary stress.

Greener cosmetics: Innovating cosmetics production

Τρί, 27/05/2014 - 09:30

Satisfying the increasing consumer demand for natural cosmetics will be a challenge for the beauty industry. The new EU-project OPTIBIOCAT aims to replace chemical techniques currently used for cosmetics production with eco-friendly biocatalysts. OPTIBIOCAT is backed by €7 million of EU-funding and builds upon a highly interdisciplinary consortium of 16 partners from eight European countries.

Making light work of orbit and attitude control

Τρί, 27/05/2014 - 09:28

Microsatellites have to be very light – every gram counts. The same applies to the gyroscopes used to sense the satellite’s orientation when in orbit. A novel prototype is seven times lighter and significantly smaller than earlier systems.

Flatland optics with graphene

Τρί, 27/05/2014 - 09:26

Researchers from CIC nanoGUNE, in collaboration with ICFO and Graphenea, introduce a platform technology based on optical antennas for trapping and controlling light with the one-atom-thick material graphene. The experiments show that the dramatically squeezed graphene-guided light can be focused and bent, following the fundamental principles of conventional optics.

Researchers from the University of Oviedo apply "green technologies" to decontaminate soils

Τρί, 27/05/2014 - 09:25

The first results of the European LIFE I+DARTS project reveal that plants that abound in our environment, such as the birch, the willow or the yellowhead can accumulate heavy metals and arsenic
