Lubricating with water sounds like a contradiction. But not for Reintrieb: The start-up has developed an oil-free lubrication system for gearboxes.
Researchers in Vienna discussed the question of whether artificial intelligence will revolutionize medicine. They see stumbling blocks in the fears of patients and in still unresolved legal issues.
Less water, no pesticides! A research project in Gujarat, India, aims to show that cotton can be grown in a resource-efficient way - even in heat and drought
European researchers want to get hybrid-electric aircraft off the ground. Their path leads via the structural battery, which will be demonstrated for the first time for an aviation application.
The market is flooded with health apps but not all of them offer the expected support. In Vienna, experts discuss the sense and nonsense of these digital applications.
The Brenner Base Tunnel will relieve transit traffic between Italy and Austria and, incidentally, supply parts of Innsbruck with geothermal energy. The source of energy is the tunnel water.
Manual tasks require practice and sensitivity, qualities that robots still lack. Now, for the first time, researchers have been able to automate the processing of flexible materials.
Neural networks for artificial intelligence can be both simpler and smarter. The efficient nervous system of the threadworm demonstrates this.
Graz University of Technology in Austria wants to extend the service life of solid oxide fuel cells and prepare the technology for greenhouses. This could bring the technology to market maturity.
Environmental stress accelerates skin aging. The exact mechanisms are still unclear and form the subject of a research project involving the fashion and cosmetics group Chanel.
If biogenic waste materials from industry is to be used to generate green biogas, then bark and sewage sludge are showing promise, say researchers at the Vienna University of Technology.
Aniela Hoitink thinks that it is easier to change fashion production than consumer behavior. With fabric made of compostable mycelium (mushroom roots) she could succeed.
For the first time ever, a new method enables the recycling of clothing containing polyamide as part of a circular system. The recycled polyamide can then be spun into new textile fibers.
Less traffic and more green spaces - superblocks can give back liveable public spaces to local residents. Initial findings confirm the validity of the model, but also reveal unwanted consequences.
A new type of textile facade cleans city air of nitrogen oxides, one of the biggest pollutants in the air. This could improve air quality in cities.
Lots of people who contract COVID-19 have only a few symptoms, if any, but are still contagious. A research group wants to minimize this risk factor and that is why they have developed a smell test.
The construction system is based on a hollow concrete brick that can be manually assembled and dismantled in a push-fit system - without the use of mortar, just like Lego.
A new pyrolysis process makes it possible to produce hydrogen and carbon from natural gas. Carbon is a by-product of the process. This makes the hydrogen that is produced emission-free.
Researchers at BOKU Vienna have developed a unique global system that allows the simultaneous and accurate identification of 1400 contaminants in food within 42 minutes.
The vaccine against COVID-19 is designed to enter the cells via the same route as the virus - and thereby activate the immune system.
