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.
CyberRadar, a contactless device enabling safe breath monitoring in patients, has been developed by scientists from the Gdańsk University of Technology and the Medical University of Gdańsk. The device can help medics in the fight against COVID-19 and in diagnosing people with respiratory and circulatory problems.
Cosmetics containing microcapsules of ozonated hemp oil in hyaluronic acid - eye serum and hand serum, packed in fully biodegradable films - have been developed by scientists from the University of Agriculture in Krakow. They used the polymer to obtain preparations that moisturize the skin, rebuild damaged epidermis and regenerate tissues.
