Sofia Bergman’s research gives scientists an opportunity to study low-energy ions.

24 November, 2021 - Institutet för rymdfysik

Sofia Bergman, Swedish Institute of Space Physics (IRF) and Umeå University, will defend her doctoral thesis on low-energy ions around comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on 26 November. Observing low energy ions is notoriously difficult because their properties are affected greatly by the spacecraft which observes them. Sofia has developed new methods to do this. Using her work, scientists can study low-energy ions around comets and in a variety of other places in the Solar System.

Blocking inhibits SARS-CoV-2 infection of human cells

24 November, 2021 - Blocking inhibits SARS-CoV-2 infection of human cells

Researchers have developed and used a new method to map interactions on a large scale between human proteins and coronavirus proteins, which has provided valuable new information. In collaborations with others, they show that blocking one of these interactions inhibited infection of human cells by SARS-CoV-2. They also confirmed the interaction between the viral protein and the human protein.

Grassroots esports – more than just gaming

23 November, 2021 - Jönköping University

Jönköping has a thriving esports scene and research from Jönköping University has shown that, here in the city of Dreamhack, it’s the local esports activists that have played a big part in making this so. Dr. Brian McCauley, an esports researcher at Jönköping International Business School, has studied esports at the grassroots level and can see that the local actors are serious players in this growing industry

Researchers from Mälardalen University are creating the first designs of the 19-passenger hybrid electric commuter aircraft

22 November, 2021 - Mälardalens högskola

Small (hybrid) electric planes just like the conceptualized 19-passenger commuter aircraft are about to change regional air travel in the future. The apparent benefits of the commuter aircraft are their fuel efficiency and the fact that they can be employed on routes that are geographically or economically far-fetched, compared to other means of transportation. Moreover, the global scientific and industrial communities are seeing aircraft electrification as one potential solution to reduce gaseous and noise emissions. Researchers at Mälardalen University, Sweden and at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, work together with Limmat Scientific AG, Switzerland in this research project which aim to re-think flight.
