ISy WiRe U: Internal Synergies for Wiser Resources Use in University Campuses

Sustainability has become an international agenda; and due to its size, complexity, and influence in society, it is important to enhance sustainability in Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs). Our team divide the big and wide terms of sustainable university into six clusters: Protocols, Economic and Feasible studies, Building Efficiency, Energy Efficiency, Food and Waste, and User …

IntegraGreen: Integration of additive manufacturing and machining processes in view of green and sustainable development

The Additive Manufacturing technology is one of the agents responsible for the 4th industrial revolution for at least three reasons. First, it offers the possibility to produce complex parts without the design constraints of traditional manufacturing routes. Second, scrap rates for AM parts are usually below 5%, compared to scrap rates of more than 90% …

G-Neo Colloids: Development of novel guanidinoglycoside based nanoparticles and nanogels for an efficient delivery of unmodified therapeutics

Main purpose of the project has been the synthesis of a new nanogel based on a PEG-PEI copolymer decorated with a modified guanidino-glycoside compound. This nanogel should then offer the possibility to embody an antitumoral drug which did not need to undergo any previous chemical modification. The great strength of this nanogel is its ability …
