Researchers from 10 European countries will explore the possibilities for the dissemination of technologies for CO2 capture, use and storage in the Strategy CCUS project. The Polish partner in this undertaking is the Central Mining Institute in Katowice.
A better understanding of the links between the processes that shape drought and human activity is the goal of the Polish-Chinese research project, of which its leader Prof. Renata Romanowicz from the Institute of Geophysics of the Polish Academy of Sciences talks to PAP.
Researchers, including a team at the Jagiellonian University, have managed to build a nanometer-sized protein cage, in which fragments of proteins are coordinated with gold ions. Researchers obtained a "mathematically impossible" solid - an almost regular Archimedean polyhedron. The solution published in Nature can be used, for example, to deliver drugs to cells.
Conflicts between humans and large species of animals such as elk or wolf do happen, but they are not dramatic and we know how to mitigate them, says Prof. Rafał Kowalczyk, director of the Mammal Research Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Białowieża. He adds that the wolf has important functions in the ecosystem and is an ally of man.
