These days the transport function of rivers is growing even though we have a whole range of other means of transportation and ways of shipping goods. Modern technology has entered the waterways. Today, to see business booming, it is no longer enough to have a river or canal on hand plus a vessel and a customer ready to pay for transportation. Such business also needs to be cost-effective, safe, and meet international standards, which in the case of the European Union are very demanding. Expertise is key and that’s where science steps in. Only scientists are able to invent and design a system to meet all these requirements.
Prof. Piotr Wolański, from the Institute of Heat Engineering at the Warsaw University of Technology, talks to Karolina Olszewska.
Researchers in the northwestern city of Szczecin are working to help turn the Oder river in western Poland into a safe and environmentally friendly waterway for shipping goods. After the project is completed, it will significantly improve the safety of freight transportation on the river and help move more cargo from roads and freeways to inland waterways. As a result, there will be fewer heavy trucks on Polish roads, the researchers say.
The mysteries of the human brain—which some say is the most complex piece of design in the known universe—are now easier to fathom thanks to Prof. Wiesław L. Nowiński, a Polish researcher working in Singapore.
A new electron paramagnetic resonance imaging (EPRI) scanner developed and built at the Poznań University of Technology in western Poland will make it possible to instantly locate areas in the body affected by cancer and atherosclerosis. It will also allow doctors to thoroughly evaluate the patient’s condition prior to treatment.
The properties of several of the most external atomic layers of materials can now be studied at the Mazovian Center for Surface Analysis in Warsaw using a number of modern techniques.
Researchers at the Warsaw-based Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences have developed a method for producing antimony microelectrodes that make it possible to measure pH changes directly above the metal surface on which chemical reactions take place.
The U.S.-Poland Innovation Hub in Silicon Valley, California, aims to help Polish companies build global strategies.
Is there a way to prevent vehicles from swerving into oncoming traffic or colliding with objects by the side of the road? Polish engineers have developed a smart barrier system to protect drivers and passengers from injury.
