The Biomedical Applications of Electromagnetic Energy workshop features the technological developments made by the project Semiconductor-based Ultrawideband Micromanipulation of CAncer STEm Cells (SUMCASTEC).
The storage of energy at temperatures higher than 1000 °C using molten silicon-based alloys is the objective of the FET-Open project AMADEUS, which will create a new generation of extremely compact and lower cost energy storage devices.
The LiRichFCC project will explore an entirely new class of materials for electrochemical energy storage termed “Li-rich FCC” comprising a very high concentration of lithium in a cubic dense packed structure (FCC).
Some examples of the successful proposals are the testing of a drug that inhibits the metabolism of cell lines from several types of tumor, the commercialisation of a new actuator for physical human-robot interaction, the exploitation of an innovative tool to convert inexpensive near-infrared (NIR) light into coherent UVA for industrial and biomedical use.
The European Commission has published a new booklet showing a few examples where EU support for research and innovation is making a real difference in the lives of citizens and society as a whole. It is aimed at all age groups so everyone can understand the good work EU funding can do.
Achieving energy efficient, cost effective and versatile solar cells has always been a challenge for the scientific community. The emerging perovskite sensitized solar cells (PSCs) are very attractive candidates to fulfil these requirements. Their potential for fast rise in performance attracted intense attention from scientific community and in particular from GOTSolar consortium.
The EU-funded SuPREME project will help to promote a conversion to renewable energy systems and resources in Poland by twinning one of the country's best energy research centre with more advanced EU centres of excellence in the field.
