Slow-motion earthquakes? Analysing silent earthquakes with machine learning algorithm
Using a computational model, an international team of researchers has examined the formative stages of slow-slip ruptures in Earth’s crust before detecting a tremor.
Positive energy solutions for smart cities of the future
An EU initiative is making great strides in developing a decentralised and cost-efficient energy trading platform to create climate-friendly and sustainable urban environments.
A biodegradable food packaging solution that also promises to increase food shelf life
Whilst developing biodegradable food packaging from upcycled cheese whey and almond shells, the EU-funded project YPACK has discovered that integrating zinc oxide and oregano essential oil helps biopapers protect against bacterial contamination in food packaging. This promises to increase the shelf life of fresh products such as meat, fruit, vegetables and fresh pasta.
