A project by ICTA-UAB will assess the “green gentrification” process by which the creation of green urban amenities tends to attract the higher social classes and excludes the most vulnerable groups.
A research led by the UAB has documented and mapped 344 archaeological vestiges using surface prospecting techniques. The results reveal a heavily humanised area, occupied for more than 10,000 years, with the majority of registries existing above the current treeline and linked to livestock raising practices.
UAB researchers and technicians of the DAM company will soon put into operation an experimental plant at the Rubí-Valldoreix wastewater treatment plant, with the objective of making the wastewater treatment process generate more energy than it consumes.
Researchers have determined the optimal varieties of beans for each agro-ecological region. The study can improve crop yield in Central and South America, Africa and Mexico.
From 27 June to 1 July, 180 experts in history of science will meet at the UAB for the CHEIRON conference, organised by the Centre for the History of Science (CEHIC). Participants will touch upon issues related to the history of social sciences, the humanities and behaviour.
Researchers from the UAB and the IBEC have revealed a way to effectively deliver a mycobacterium (M. brumae) needed for the treatment of bladder cancer in humans. The method, based on an emulsion using olive oil and tested on mice, was recently published in the journal Scientific Reports.
UAB is internationally renowned for its quality and innovation in research.
