Creating innovative materials with AI and fundamental physics

Dr Mazhar Ali of the Ali Group at the Max Planck Institute discusses the role of AI and fundamental physics in the creation of...

iCUPE Datasets for Polar Regions

The Horizon 2020 iCUPE project aims to improve our understanding of pollution sources, environmental changes, and their impact on polar regions. The coordination of the...

Drone usage in flood science and beyond

Drone usage has increased greatly in many sectors over the last ten years. Dr Guy Schumann, CEO of RSS-Hydro, analyses the adoption of drone...

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 the species on earth, while providing essential global services such as regulating climate, purifying air...

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 technical skill. Pilots require hundreds of hours of training and experience before they receive their...

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 and assist people in need, especially the most vulnerable. This is particularly true during disasters...

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,...
