Sustainable agriculture: Nutrient removal from agricultural runoff

The NuReDrain project discuss their work developing innovative technologies for removing the nutrients from agricultural runoff. The North Sea region is recognised as an intensive...

Could financial incentives help preserve tropical forests?

Environmental scientists from St. Edward’s University discuss how paying landowners to protect trees could help preserve tropical forests. Tropical forests are home to half of...

How PilotEdge is changing the way pilots interact with flight simulations

The multiplatform distributed virtual training environment (MDVTE) is the only flight simulation experience comparable to operating an actual aircraft. Flying an aircraft is a highly...

The importance of trust and regulation in flood disaster response

Scientific products must become a trusted and authoritative source to better assist flood disaster response at a global level. It is human nature to help...

Battery calorimetry: an innovative approach for ageing studies

The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology discuss their method of promoting battery safety, which holds the potential to revolutionise the transport industry. Battery calorimeters are essential to ensuring the safety of batteries. By monitoring the thermal runaway, technicians can prevent ignition...

Genitourinary cancer treatment made personal

Non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer has a 60-70% chance of reoccurring in patients – it’s time to talk about it. Understanding and overcoming cancer progression and therapy resistance is a major overarching goal of cancer research. It is true that much progress...

Observing the atmosphere during the pandemic

The effects of the pandemic on the atmosphere may be non-intuitive, but how do atmospheric scientists organise their work under various restrictions? The pandemic influences people’s lives everywhere. It influences atmospheric scientists in two ways: it brings new research problems...

Biofabricating the human circulatory system

Dr Matteo Moretti, Director of the EOC, discusses the current advances in the development of next generation engineered tissues. The regeneration of biological tissues and organs in vitro is an idea that emerged almost 25 years ago and many progresses...

Innovation to mitigate battery thermal propagation

The Institute for Applied Materials – Applied Materials Physics (IAM-AWP) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany, is home to Europe’s largest battery calorimeter laboratory. With six Accelerating Rate Calorimeters (ARCs, Thermal Hazard Technology) of different sizes used in...

Everything you need to know about the annual MPS therapy week

From 11 July to 20 July 2019, the annual MPS therapy week and bi-annual MPS Conference was hosted in Hinterglemm, in the South-East of Salzburg, Austria. Over the course of those days, individuals affected with mucopolysaccharidoses and similar lysosomal disorders,...

Supporting trees in the inner city: the case for structural soil

The fact that trees have difficulties surviving in urban environments is not a surprise. Urban areas are rarely designed with trees in mind. Trees are often treated as if they were afterthoughts in an environment designed and built for cars,...

A universal tool to share knowledge about animal gene banks

Gene banks keep a range of biological material: gametes, embryos, DNA, somatic tissues, biological fluids. They represent a major investment for research institutions as well as for governments for the preservation of genetic diversity. The challenge is to evaluate the...

A recycling revolution for lead-acid batteries

Lead-acid batteries have been indispensable for industrial progress, but at what cost? As the world is looking towards cleaner and greener energy and recycling solutions, we ask: where will the surplus lead go? Is there a better way? The lead-acid battery...

Personalised skin tissue therapy underway

More than 50 million people suffer from skin defects every year in the world, and require surgical intervention to restore skin function and appearance. The standard of care (autografting) is ineffective and very often too scarce. Autografting is a challenge...
