Dr. Natalia Wójcik from the Gdańsk University of Technology is looking for alternative materials for the production of composites used in bone implants. Her research can contribute to the development of more advanced implants that will regenerate bone defects without disrupting the biochemical balance of the body.
An important part of the Hard Capture System (HCS) that ensures the safety of astronauts has been developed in Poland. The purpose of the system is to provide a rigid connection between structures in order to allow for a pressurized passageway between two spacecrafts, SENER Polska reports. Its engineers developed the technology.
Spent coffee grounds have a very high calorific value and contain a large amount of water, which is why they are great as additives to clay in the production process of porous ceramic materials with thermal insulation properties. Dr. Ewelina Kłosek-Wawrzyn from AGH UST is working on the optimisation of production of such materials. The first test results are very promising, the university reports.
Russia has a lot of experience in cyber warfare, and disinformation war is planned for a long time. The West must learn to wield this weapon better. What we needed is training the public to recognise disinformation and create good systems to detect the source of information, says Dr. Aleksandra Przegalińska, a professor at the Kozminski University.
