Joint research conducted by the UAB has shown the ability to switch magnetizacion « on » and « off » using voltage in a new class of easy-to-fabricate materials containing nitrogen. These results, published in Nature Communications, may be used to reduce energy consumption in electronic technologies.
The research centres located on the UAB campus are participating in the scientific dissemination activities which will be celebrated until 29 November all over Catalonia, this year with numerous activities being held online.
On Monday 16 November, from 12:30 to 3:00 p.m., the UAB's CORE in Mental Health will be hosting a seminar addressed to the university community, and local entities and institutions to devise joint suicide prevention actions to be applied on campus.
Scientists have developed extremely stable molecular switches of high luminosity that self-assemble into 1D nanostructures and form gel-like materials. These molecular switches can be used in biomedicine as fluorescent probes for imaging or sensing, in fluorescent displays, or in memories and information processing devices.
The reWINE project, coordinated by the UAB Research Park and including the involvement of the ICTA-UAB spin-off inèdit, presents the results of its pilot test of a sustainable system of collection, cleaning and reuse of glass bottles of Catalonia's wine industry, developed in the past 20 months.
An innovative technology capable of converting CO2 into lactic acid developed by researchers from the Department of Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering was praised by the European Commission for its huge application potential.
On Wednesday 21 October, the European project reWINE, coordinated by the UAB Research Park, organizes the conference “Let us commit to reusing wine bottles”, in which it will present the main results of the pilot test of a sustainable system for the collection, cleaning, and reuse of glass bottles in the Catalan wine industry.
The Separation Techniques Group (GTS) at the UAB and Leitat Technological Center launch the AsFree project to show an innovative and economic system that filters effluents polluted with arsenic. Researchers point to a 600% improvement in the efficiency of this depuration system.
The UAB recently launched EGRETA (Entorn per a la Gestió de la Recerca i la Transferència), a new research information management system which also makes research conducted at the University more visible through a new Research Portal. Training sessions will be offered in the coming months.
