Components, systems and engineering
It is such a worthy and yet largely unrecognised field of science and technology that we dedicated an issue of Research*EU magazine to ‘Components, systems and engineering’. We look at cutting-edge nano-structures and -composites, new types of coatings, PVCs, foams and wood-based materials, to name just a few of the research results in this issue. As well as this special section, we still have our regular biology and medicine section.
The top story describes new gene therapy to combat degenerative brain diseases like Parkinson’s. Early breakthroughs by EU-funded researchers look promising.
In the energy and transport, section we investigate laser fusion energy as an innovative solution to meeting future energy demands in a safe and environmentally friendly way.
