One of the most advanced university cleanrooms in the world, the Nanofabrication Laboratory, at the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience, MC2, at Chalmers University of Technology, in Göteborg, Sweden, is now offering European Universities and SME:s access, free of charge, to advanced micro- and nanotechnology fabrication resources.

Better fuel cells through quantum mechanics

15 February, 2006 - KTH (Kungliga Tekniska högskolan)

Fuel cells must be made more efficient if they are to provide a viable alternative to traditional energy sources, and the choice of materials is crucial to how efficient they are. New findings from scientists at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Uppsala University, and Linköping University are opening new ways of finding optimal materials for better fuel cells much more quickly.

The Uppsala School of Jurisprudence Reconsidered

14 February, 2006 - Stockholms universitet

The Swedish philosopher and professor Axel Hägerström (1868-1939) played an influential role in the history of jurisprudence. The main goal of his investigations into jurisprudence was to make it, and therefore also the study of law, scientific and objective.

Phytoestrogen-rich foods protect against cancer

13 February, 2006 - Karolinska Institutet

Men who have a diet rich in soya products, beans and sunflower seeds run a much lower risk of contracting prostate cancer. New findings from Karolinska Institutet show that foods rich in phytoestrogens – plant-produced oestrogens – protect against the most common form of cancer in the western world.

Non-BRCA1/2 Hereditary Breast Cancer Linked to New Cancers

13 February, 2006 - Karolinska Institutet

The risk for a new cancer in the unaffected breast substantially increases in women diagnosed with unilateral, hereditary (non-BRCA1/2) breast cancer, according to a new study by researchers working at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden. The study is the first in its kind and is published in the March 15, 2006 issue of CANCER.

How colliding cultures cause water shortages

10 February, 2006 - Göteborgs universitet

Rainmakers and civil servants, specialists and farmers understand water policies in markedly different ways. This is why international policy instruments for managing water resources do not succeed, and the consequence is water shortage. This is shown in a dissertation in political science from Göteborg University in Sweden.
