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.

The Converge hub is born to connect researchers with companies and boost open innovation

This CSIC initiative is a space for scientists, companies and social agents to innovate and  co-create. It has four programmes: an open innovation programme that fosters collaboration between companies and research centres; a programme to identify and accelerate projects for the creation of new companies; a space for sharing R&D&I needs and challenges in the field of public services and public procurement of innovation; and a programme for the creation of chairs as a way for companies to sponsor CSIC research lines.

Scientists and companies join forces to 'teach' AI to explain itself

The European H2020 project NL4XAI addresses the question of how the quality of algorithms in the emerging field of Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI), i.e. machines capable of justifying and reasoning their decisions, should be assessed. The aim is to train the first generation of experts in this field.
