COVID-19 nasal vaccine candidate effective at preventing disease transmission
Breathe in, breathe out. That’s how easy it is for SARS-CoV-2 to enter your nose. And though remarkable progress has been made in developing intramuscular vaccines against SARS-CoV- 2 nothing yet – like a nasal vaccine – has been approved to provide mucosal immunity in the nose, the first barrier against the virus before it travels down to the lungs.

3D-printed objects that sense how a user is interacting with them
MIT researchers have developed a new method to 3D print mechanisms that detect how force is being applied to an object. The structures are made from a single piece of material, so they can be rapidly prototyped. A designer could use this method to 3D print “interactive input devices,” like a joystick, switch, or handheld controller, in one go.

TU Dresden researchers develop an implantable AI system
TU Dresden scientists at the Chair of Optoelectronics have succeeded for the first time in developing a bio-compatible implantable AI platform that classifies in real time healthy and pathological patterns in biological signals such as heartbeats. It detects pathological changes even without medical supervision. The research results have now been published in the journal Science Advances.

3D-printed sensors
3D-printing is becoming increasingly important in industrial manufacturing. It not only makes it possible to produce very complex shapes that would otherwise be virtually impossible to generate using conventional processes, but also enables small batch numbers to be produced on a cost-effective basis.

Researcher develops copper-infused mask for hospitality and tourism industry
Masking up is one safe precaution. But it’s also an uncomfortable gesture, as some masks may inflict wear and tear on the face or not provide an adequate level of protection for the worker, explained Ajay Aluri, founding director of the Hospitality Innovation and Technology Lab at West Virginia University.

Efficient roll-to-roll production technologies for more climate neutrality
For a climate-neutral economy, every opportunity must be exploited to reduce energy requirements and use resources efficiently. Highly efficient industrial processes are a key element in this. To this end, in the R2R-Net network, 18 European partners from industry and research are further developing reel-to-reel systems and processes that are used in production in a variety of ways.

An artificial ionic neuron for tomorrow's electronic memories
Brain-inspired electronics are the subject of intense research. Scientists from CNRS and the Ecole Normale Supérieure – PSL have theorized how to develop artificial neurons using, as nerve cells, ions to carry the information. Their work reports that devices made of a single layer of water transporting ions within graphene nanoslits have the same transmission capacity as a neuron.
