21. Robots of the deep

We must learn to both sustainably exploit and protect our vast oceans, provider of oxygen, food, hydrocarbons and other resources. A solution lies in sensing and interacting through an Internet of Things, with distributed networks of intelligent sensors and actuators. Unfortunately, we currently lack a marine Internet, crucial to achieve distributed, coordinated and adaptive control, due to the rapid absorption of light and radio waves in seawater. [read more]

22. Success Stories - Multi-physics-the great unknown

A large number of engineering applications involve granular material or a particulate phase in combination with a gaseous or liquid phase. Applications for this kind of materials mix can be found in diverse domains such as the pharmaceutical industry, the food and processing industry, energy production or systems biology. Everyday products such as coffee, corn flakes, nuts or fertilizer all depend on this field of knowledge known as multi-physics. [read more]

23. Trending science: New medication for drug-resistant tuberculosis

A new medication has shown the potential to cure drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB). The new drug, which was announced at the annual International AIDS Conference, in Melbourne, Australia, could represent a medical breakthrough that would impact on the lives of millions of TB-sufferers worldwide. The story is reported in the New Scientist earlier this week. Quality validation date: 2014-07-24 [read more]

26. Eurostars project NeedleInTheHaystack

New medical tech brings hope in fight against Alzheimer's Living longer means more chronic conditions and especially neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. The causes of neurodegenerative diseases are poorly understood, but a Eurostars-funded project can provide a solution. [read more]

27. F4E collaborates with IDOM on high tech ITER systems

Opening a new chapter in the field of Diagnostics that will help us study and control ITER’s incredibly powerful plasma. [read more]

28. Home-based rehabilitation for CVD patients

Patients who are found to suffer from cardiovascular diseases often have long years of treatment ahead of them and are urged to drastically change their lifestyle. But what is probably the most difficult part of the process is the return home where old habits die hard. A new technology relying on remote sensors could soon make post-CVD-event life a whole lot easier. Quality validation date: 2014-07-23 [read more]
