Photo of article Roboter helfen Pflanzen, in urbanen Räumen zu gedeihen

Überfüllte Städte sind nicht gerade die ideale Umgebung für ein gutes Gedeihen von Pflanzen. Ein EU-finanziertes Forschungsteam lenkt mithilfe von Robotik das Wachstum von Pflanzen in die unnatürlichen Formen, Größen und Ausrichtungen, die urbane Räume erfordern. So könnten Städte bald von einer soliden grünen, vielseitig nutzbaren, Infrastruktur profitieren, die von der Lebensmittelproduktion bis hin zur Klimaregulierung reicht.

Photo of article Robotics to help plants thrive in urban environments

Crowded cities aren't exactly optimal environments for plants to thrive. However, a team of EU-funded researchers is using robotics to help plants automatically grow into the unnatural shapes, sizes, and configurations that urban environments demand. As a result, cities could soon benefit from a robust green infrastructure used for everything from food production to climate control.

Las ciudades abarrotadas no son el mejor lugar para que proliferen las plantas. Un equipo de investigadores financiados con fondos europeos emplea la robótica para que las plantas adapten automáticamente su morfología a los entornos urbanos. Así las ciudades podrían beneficiarse pronto de una infraestructura verde y robusta multiuso: desde la producción de alimentos hasta el control climático.

Les villes surpeuplées ne sont pas un environnement optimal pour la croissance des plantes. Une équipe de chercheurs financés par l’UE a recours à la robotique pour aider les plantes à prendre les tailles et configurations qu’exigent les milieux urbains. Ainsi, les villes pourraient bientôt bénéficier d’une infrastructure verte utilisée pour tout de la production alimentaire au contrôle du climat.

Photo of article Rounding the circle: taking steps towards a circular economy

Global overconsumption is not sustainable and it is becoming increasingly evident that serious changes must be made. EU-funded research is helping to support the transition to a circular economy by identifying successful business models and how to implement them.

Photo of article Tidal flows generate huge potential for clean electricity

More predictable than the wind and sun, tides have a massive potential when it comes to generating clean electricity. With tidal turbines already generating electricity within our seas, the challenge facing the industry now is to reduce costs. A consortium of EU-funded organisations has been using this knowledge to create a novel turbine able to make tidal energy more competitive.
