Oxford’sFaculty of Classics has seized this year’s opportunity of distance learning to reach out to schools, with professors of ancient subjects going into online classrooms to talk to pupils about everything from who wore togas to the poet Juvenal. Meanwhile, recent research from Oxford and Cambridge shows classical subjects are simply not available in […]

On 1 March 2021, the new Emmy Noether research group “Mesoscale Material Modeling and Simulations (3MS)” started working at the Faculty of Mathematics at TU Dresden. Group leader Dr. Marco Salvalaglio, an Italian physicist and material scientist, will benefit from the interdisciplinary research environment at TU Dresden, closely cooperating with […]

A researcher from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) has proposed a new explanation for the Arctic’s rapid warming. In his recent paper in Geosciences, he suggests that the warming could have been triggered by a series of great earthquakes. Global warming is one of the pressing issues faced by civilization. It is widely believed to be caused […]

The University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (Unimore) joins the Manifesto for Inclusive University, an initiative following the commitments laid down by the United Nations General Assembly through the Global Compact on Refugees, under which the Universities undertake to promote the access of refugees to university education and research, and […]

A new study describes a potential drug target for Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome that may aid in the development of more effective treatments. Scientists have identified a potential new treatment approach for Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS), a progressive genetic disorder that causes rapid and premature ageing in children. The findings in […]

Tiny earthquakes, too small to be felt on the Earth’s surface, create chemical changes which turn groundwater acidic, according to newly-published research at the University of Strathclyde. The research paper ‘Microseismic events cause significant pH drops in groundwater’ published by Geophysical Research Letters, documents for the first time how tiny earthquakes, not […]

Today, neuroscience and robotics are developing hand in hand. Mikhail Lebedev, Academic Supervisor at HSE University’s Centre for Bioelectric Interfaces, spoke about how studying the brain inspires the development of robots. Robots are interesting to neuroscience and neuroscience is interesting to robots —this is what our article ‘Neuroengineering challenges of fusing […]

A new research project led by Water Services Corporation (WSC) in collaboration with the UM’s Department of Food Science & Nutrition will help give a clear indication of potential disinfection technology that will eventually be included in the Water Services Corporation’s drinking-water production line. This project has just received funding by the […]
