The precise thickness of ultra-thin films of light-emitting plastics is important for their brightness. By layering two plastic films on top of each other, and writing in one of the films with a sharp stylus, light-emitting patterns like for example a signature can be created. Mattias Lindh, who has studied the operation of light-emitting electrochemical cells, writes this in his PhD thesis.
An additional SEK 20 million is invested by the Government in developing a national competence platform and further training in artificial intelligence. Umeå University, which has a prominent research within AI in healthcare and forest industry, is one of seven universities participating.

The European Commission’s 2018 climate neutrality strategy, ‘A Clean Planet for all’, states that reaching its goal ‘will require increasing amounts of biomass compared to today’s consumption.’ Whether the transport sector can meet targets depends on the pathways chosen now.
EU-funded researchers present the causes of increased air pollution in West Africa and suggest ways to tackle the problem.
New study shows connections between global environmental degradation and tax havens published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. On average 68% of all investigated foreign capital to sectors associated with deforestation of the Amazon rainforest was transferred through tax havens. 70% of the known fishing vessels involved in illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing are, or have been, registered in tax havens. Loss of tax revenue caused by tax havens should be considered as indirect subsidies to economic activities with detrimental environmental consequences.
The VIRT-EU project invites working professionals in the field of design and technology to enter the VIRT-EU Design Challenge, to address how communal living can be supported and enhanced by the Internet of Things (IoT).
