Searching for smart specialisation in Greece
Georgios Stavropoulos, a physicist in Greece’s Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics, is pitching for his frontier deep sea neutrino project to be included under the EU’s new experimental regional funding scheme
ETH produced the thinnest feasible membrane
A new nano-membrane made out of the “super material” graphene is extremely light and breathable. Not only can this open the door to a new generation of functional waterproof clothing, but also to ultra-rapid filtration. The membrane produced by the researchers at ETH Zurich is as thin as is technologically possible.
Chalmers develops novel high temperature materials for a sustainable society
Thermal power plants amounts to nearly 70% of all generated electricity worldwide, but also accounts for about one third of the global carbon dioxide emissions. By finding improved high temperature materials, thermal power plants can run more effectively to a lower cost, both economically and environmentally.
