Anna Laromaine: "We go into the NEXTGEM project without a preconceived or biased idea of electromagnetic fields"

Anna Laromaine is a researcher in the Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites group at the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC). This group is currently part of NEXTGEM, a European project that involves twenty organizations from ten countries  and aims to understand the impact of electromagnetic fields on the 5G frequency.

Spirs: hardware-based security that is affordable for IOT and electronic devices

The European project Spirs is developing affordable hardware-based solutions to enhance security against cyber attacks for small and medium-sized enterprises, allowing them to incorporate these measures into their devices without a significant increase in the final price. The aim is to provide high-security solutions, even for systems with limited resources, such as IoT (Internet of Things) devices. These latter, often wearables, face strict constraints in terms of size and weight.

NextGem, a European project to monitor and assess radiofrequency electromagnetic fields and health

The main objective is to ensure the safety of citizens from existing and future telecommunications technologies based on electromagnetic fields. They have developed software to model the distribution of electromagnetic fields in organisms and predict their impact on the body. By means of biological experiments, scientists study the effects of radio frequency exposure on proteins, cells and organisms, and also are developing portable sensors to measure intensity of electromagnetic fields. Fifteen months after the start of the project, which involves the ICMAB-CSIC, the participants have met in Greece to show the first results.

Equipment for the control of steel pipelines in service

At the CENIM-CSIC, scientists have developed a system that makes it possible to evaluate in situ and in a non-destructive manner the longitudinal welds in steel pipes, which are made by high-frequency induction heating or resistance heating, such as those used in gas pipelines and oil pipelines.

Scientists develop an affordable artificial intelligence tool to improve the production of SMEs

The CSIC and the Polytechnic University of Madrid have developed a software based on machine learning techniques to generate useful information and intelligent recommendations to optimise production processes. This affordable software has been created within the framework of a European project to give SMEs access to this type of tools.
