Renesas Electronics Europe, advanced semiconductor provider has teamed up with G&D (Giesecke & Devrient) international technology specialists in the banknote, payment, secure communication and identity management sectors to collaborate for industrial security solutions and services. The first product, being demonstrated at this week’s Nuremberg SPS IPC Drives, fis ocused on anti-counterfeiting solutions for industrial products.
A new Government-backed code, 'The Peatland Code' that could slash UK carbon dioxide emissions by 220 million tonnes and protect rare wildlife by restoring moors, bogs and mires was unveiled at the World Forum for Natural Capital in Edinburgh, following a successful 2-year trial, which has seen businesses fund peatland restoration projects in southwest England, the Lake District and Wales
As researchers in China are recorded in “The Lancet” ominously to have found E.coli bacteria resistant to colistin ‘the antibiotic of last resort,’ hopefully some help may emerge on this global issue with Liverpool’s future world class life science hub around the new £25m Sciences Accelerator laboratory developmen,t enabling innovative antibiotic resistance research.

The University of Dundee will play host to the prestigious World Cultural Council Annual Award Ceremony as part of its Winter Graduation celebrations this week where the seven awarded STEM women amazingly outnumber the one expert man.
In 2013 the UK’s wildlife organisations joined forces (for the first time ever!!) to undertake a health check of nature in the UK and its Overseas Territories. The resulting "State of Nature" report finds that 60 per cent of UK species studied had declined in recent decades. More than 1 in 10 could disappear from our shores altogether.
Fiona Hyslop is taken to task by "The Sunday Herald" that publishes an open letter today from the paper’s theatre critic Mark Brown to Fiona Hyslop, cabinet secretary for culture, in which he savages Creative Scotland’s strategy plans for the 'jargon' it uses, referring to it as ‘ridiculous’ and ‘market obsessed.’
If it’s not in your diary, put the date there now, that IEDM - will get underway, preceeded by 90 minute tutorials on Saturday 5th December and day-long short courses on Sunday 6th December. The heart of the matter,is a technical program of some 220 papers, and a rich offering of other events taking place during the meeting. This includes evening panels, special focus sessions, IEEE awards and an entrepreneurial luncheon sponsored by IEDM and (hurrah!!) IEEE Women in Engineering.
Alan Turing Institute and Intel agree to form a long term strategic partnership to deliver a research programme focussed on high-performance computing and data analytics. Researchers from both organisations will work together with co-funded research fellows and software engineers. ARM’s November TechCon conference revealed its new low-power application-tier CPU - Cortex-A35 offering, a new family of ultra-high efficiency processors, offering 64-bit compute to smartphone users, and ultrahigh efficiency for wearables. For IBM, the £12,000 contribution to partnership with the University of Warwick, offers researchers guidance through the ethical minefield of using big data and real time analytics.
Appalled at the French massacres of 13th November, which like the assassination of President Kennedy is now embedded into a date and time memory, as are the Twin Towers disaster and other one-day atrocities for which there is no offering and no contribution to ease or enlighten the travesties of willfull destruction by humans of humans.
"The real key to fighting ransomware is to take a closer look at what the attackers are after: these are the files and emails that employees create and view every day," says Varonis engineer, Kieran Laffan. "This unstructured data is the largest data set in most organisations, often the most valuable, and, unfortunately, least controlled." He is urging user behaviour analytics to reduce breach and recovery times while the news break now is that of the Armada Collective warning and its Bitcoin payment demands where Corero offers purpose built DDoS protection
Global supplier of advanced semiconductor wafer products and wafer services to the semiconductor industry, IQE has appointed Dr. Wyn Meredith as director of the new CSC (Compound Semiconductor Centre) the JV (joint venture) between IQE plc and Cardiff University formally being launched later this month.
Professor Sarah Parcak of University of Alabama at Birmingham, has recently been named as winner of the $1million 2016 TED (Technology, Entertainment & Design) Prize, after founding the Laboratory for Global Observation.
The Universities of Glasgow and Southern Denmark have spun-out Caldan Therapeutics, a company from there joint research that is developing novel therapeutics for T2 diabetes and has raised £4.45 million of funding.
Infographics for Blender slaves and fans alike! Ton Roosendaal (below right, co-founded the Dutch animation studio NeoGeo. This studio quickly became the largest 3D animation house in the Netherlands. Within NeoGeo, Ton was responsible for both art direction and internal software development. After a careful deliberation it was decided that the current in-house 3D toolset needed to be rewritten from scratch. In 1995 this rewrite began and was destined to become the 3D software tool we all now know as Blender.portraitIn 1998, Ton founded a new company called Not a Number (NaN), to further market and develop Blender.
Gothenburg University researchers develop a reference method for standardised measurements that diagnose Alzheimer’s disease decades before the symptoms appear. The method is now formally classified as the international reference method, and will be used as the standard in Alzheimer’s diagnostics worldwide.
On the heels of Loughborough, Liverpool’s future as a world class life science hub takes a giant step forward with a new £25m Sciences Accelerator laboratory development that will enable innovative research into antibiotic resistance.
On the eve of the opening of the Longitude Prize, Loughborough University secures £545,000 funding to help fight the global health threat of AMR (Antimicrobial Resistance) that occurs when microbes (harmful bacteria) develop defences against drugs designed to kill them.
