Partnerships for thermal spraying
An EU team formed a research alliance with several Chinese university partners, including a new facility. Through knowledge transfer events and exchanges, network members studied industrial coating via thermal spraying, which yielded new modelling software.
Portugal’s nanomedicine infrastructure gets a boost
An EU-funded initiative strengthened the infrastructure, dissemination, and innovation strategies of a materials science group in Portugal. The ultimate goal was to consolidate research excellence and commercial exploitation of the scientific developments.
Peptides in stem cell research
European researchers used a stem cell-based approach to identify compounds that could promote cell differentiation. Such compounds could be utilised as regenerative treatments to induce tissue repair.
Terahertz radiation sources and detectors
The realization of efficient terahertz (THz) radiation sources and detectors is one of the important objectives of modern applied physics. This has wide ranging applications in biology, medicine, security and non-destructive in-depth imaging.
