Scientists at the University of Twente and at Forest Research, the research agency of the British Forestry Commission, have used the UK Climate Projections 2009 data in models to show reduction in forest production by up to 42% by the 2080s due to climate chang
Smart city projects are typically deployed via partnerships between the public and private sectors. The main business models include build-operate-transfer (BOT), build-operate-comply (BOC) and municipal-owned-deployment (MOD).
When nuclear fuel is recycled, the process releases radioactive krypton and xenon gases. Naturally occurring uranium in rock contaminates basements with the related gas radon. But now a new porous material called CC3 effectively traps these gases.
Gaberlunzie sees the laser's history getting an airing with the retirement of laser inventor Charles Hard Townes, Professor emeritus of physics at the University of California, Berkeley, who turns 99 on July 28, and has an adoring campus about to throwing him a long-overdue birthday party.
In 2013 over 13, 642 incidents reported to the UK regulator related to faulty medical equipment, which led to over 300 deaths and almost 5,000 serious injuries. Low priority given to NHS engineers is leading to problems caused by faulty medical equipment, cancelled operations and bad value for taxpayers money.
Glasgow-based GSS (Gold Standard Simulations) has a multimillion dollar contract to license its complete TCAD/EDA tool suite to GlobalFoundries. The news follows on from the world's largest foundry TSMC also licensing the statistical analysis tools.
In some computer and industrial circles, the name Paderborn immediately conjures up Heinz Nixdorf who in 1964 producied the small computer System 820, that sold successfully to SME businesses. In 1968, Nixdorf bought Wanderer-Werke, incorporated it into Nixdorf Computer AG, head office, Paderborn. Now the city becomes home to a new electronics manufacturing composite entity Periscope GmbH that combines both Selcom and Flextronics.
In the referendum debate Scotland's finance may not seem of such significance to outweigh hearts, souls and history, but for a canny country, bawbees matter. The CIPFA (Chartered Institute of Public Finance & Accountancy) believes the public deserve transparent and understandable data on Scotland's finances and the choices that an undefended Scotland would face.
Although nuclear power has been described by some as "a busted flush," Scottish Enterprise is to invest in a project aimed at helping Scottish firms to skill-up and move into the nuclear power industry.
Researchers from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya Barcelona Tech (UPC), the Instituto de Química Mèdica (IQM-CSIC) and University of Glasgow have proved that the CD27 drug is a true alternative against malaria. They have analysed the crystalline structure of the DNA with the drug by performing X-ray diffraction experiments at ALBA synchrotron.
As US research into Ormia ochracea a parasitic fly discovers its survival depends on a unique and sophisticated sound processing mechanism, which can be adapted for a generation of hypersensitive hearing aids, UK research shows that bio-acoustic recorders can provide vital additional information to help protect such rare and endangered birds as the European nightjar, the Capercaillie and the wood lark.
Integrated Device Technology, Inc. shows off the world’s smallest 2-watt wireless power receiver and battery charger, as delivering leading technology in a compact package ideal for small form factors, including wearable applications.
Haydale of South Wales, with a patent pending proprietary scalable plasma process to functionalise graphene and other nanomaterials using a dry, low-energy process, avoiding the need to use potentially harsh 'wet' chemicals or acids has announced a major consulting agreement with InVentures Group to accelerate the commercial application of its patent for plasma functionalisation technology in graphene, carbon nanotubes and other high performance nanomaterial systems.xv
The UK Government’s £230 million loan to Ineos, for the Grangemouth Refinery to build a gigantic ethane storage tank to support its planned import of cheap shale gas from America, is being seen as good news for the Grangemouth workforce.
