A self-repairing composite comes as a godsend now that composite polymer materials are widely used and the environment must be protected.
A practical problem online concerns one’s online identity. Verified accounts have issues with privacy - a problem a digital token might solve.
Swiss scientists are researching a way to reinforce road paving with simple materials and subsequently recycle it: With the help of a robot and a few meters of twine.
Researchers at Empa and ETH Zurich have developed a process for wood that generates electrical voltage when pressure is applied to it, thereby acting as a bio-sensor or generating energy.
This portable sensor chip - the stress meter - which can measure levels of the stress hormone cortisol present in human sweat, is a major breakthrough.
A Swiss scientific institution has developed an artificial aorta that reduces the amount of pumping that the heart of a cardiac patient has to do. This offers an alternative to heart transplants.
Behavioral scientists have developed a deep learning tool that enables the study of animal movements and poses in real time.
A face mask that constantly sterilizes itself is the solution for those who really want to take to the streets safely. It also helps to reduce waste.
Scientists at ETH Zurich are researching how cancer drugs can be externally controlled with the aid of magnetic bacteria and thus be guided precisely through the bloodstream to target a tumor.
A new form of construction, in which a structure automatically adapts to the stress on it, is likely to reduce the negative impact on the environment caused by the construction industry.
Scientists at the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research Empa are researching a new powertrain concept for commercial vehicles with the use of a special test engine.
A research team from Empa and Imperial College London has developed drones which equip trees with sensors to detect environmental damage in the forest.
To ensure safe, high-performance batteries from environmentally friendly resources, lithium must be replaced by sodium. Swiss scientists have found a chemical solution for this.
At the Swiss Market Entry Bootcamp and Startup Days in Bern, 40 start-ups from 20 countries will present solutions for industries that are particularly affected by COVID-19.
Swiss scientists at UNIGE and HUG have developed a new therapy technique for cancer that is more effective than chemotherapy and has no side effects.
Swiss electric sports car manufacturer Piëch Automotive is hiring new management staff from BMW, Porsche and Tesla to press ahead with the market launch of the luxury sports car.
UNIGE researchers have recreated an anti-reflective and anti-adhesive coating that typically covers the eyes of fruit flies.
An international research team has developed an electrocatalyst for hydrogen fuel cells that does not require carbon carriers and is therefore much more stable.
The ExoLabs spin-off from the Swiss University of Zurich has developed a model for calculating meltwater volumes that helps hydroelectric power plants to produce electricity more cost-effectively.
An international team of researchers was able to show that an endogenous protein can prevent the Sars-Cov-2 virus from fusing with the body's cells and infecting them.
