NIRS: Let´s not talk about “new technologies” but about good applications

What if we had a tool that we could carry in our pocket and that would allow us to control the quality of the food products at any point in their production? Dear sirs, we have it!! It seems like and advert selling a panacea,I know, but I´m not going beyond reality.... I´m talking about Near...

Innovating in capital letters: r+d+I

I´ve always thought that the acronym R&D&i corresponded to the greater or lesser risk of carrying out the associated activities, hence the first two were capital letters and the third was lower case. After 15 years working in a technology centre I realise that referring to research and...

The Second Green Revolution, or how agrigenomics is transforming agriculture

In the 1960s, the American biologist Norman Borlaug used selective plant breeding techniques to create a dwarf variety of wheat that uses most of its energy to produce grain instead of stalks. This work won him the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970 and, along with that of many other scientists, is part of...

MOBILITIES FOR EU

A year ago, at the beginning of 2023, at CARTIF we started one of those great projects that leave a footprint (although if we talk in terms of emissions, the idea is actually to reduce them), NEUTRALPATH. In it, the cities of Zaragoza (Spain) and Dresden (Germany) are developing PCED (clean and...

The majority of plastics used in the world today come from non-renewable and non-biodegradable sources. In an effort to reduce the impact of plastics on the environment, alternative methods of production and waste management have been studied for decades. Several microorganisms have the ability to...

Uncertainties in electricity supply

These days we are seeing news in the media1 about the possibility of blackouts in the coming years. This news has its roots in a report published by Red Eléctrica de España entitled "National Resource Adequancy Assessment"2 . It summarises the conclusions of the latest analysis of the system´s...

The evolution of HRIs (Human-robot interaction). More agile and adaptable to different scenarios

In a world where humans perform tasks that involve manipulating objects, such as lifting, dragging or interacting with them (for example, when we use our beloved mobile phones or we eat an apple), these actions are performed subconsciously, naturally. It is our senses that allow us to adapt our...
