A team of scientists from the Silesian University of Technology has developed a technology for obtaining bioactive coatings on the surface of bone implants for animals. The technology has been licensed to a Polish implant manufacturer and the product is already working well in the treatment of animals.
The Białystok University of Technology has obtained a patent for the preparation (and the method of obtaining it from the fungus found in the Białowieża Forest - Aurantiporus fissilis) that can be used in the treatment of American foulbrood, a dangerous infectious disease of bees. Work on the patent took over two years.
Polish companies in scientific consortia, working, for example, on the use of AI in complex economic, industrial and even agricultural problems, can apply for grants from the European agency EISMEA, says Jerzy Respondek, a Polish expert who evaluates applications.
Bioactive nanoparticle composites applied in the form of a permanent coating eliminate viruses, bacteria and fungi. This method of protecting the sterility of places exposed to the spread of microorganisms has been proposed by a researcher from the Warsaw University of Technology.
In the same way that every person has a unique fingerprint, it is very likely that the set of compounds in exhaled air is unique as well. If the research of scientists from AGH-UST confirms this hypothesis, breath could become the next bioidentifier used, for example, to confirm identity.
Gasars are ultralight, durable, they absorb sounds, energy, damp vibrations, and conduct higher temperatures well. These new materials developed in Poland by scientists at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków are desirable, for example, in the aerospace industry and can contribute to protecting our planet from climate change.
