Video Passport to the UPC
Video Liquids and solids at the same time?
Disordered systems are found throughout nature, and there is no theory to describe them. How do the molecules of a liquid move as they cool? The UPC is studying the structure of liquids.
Video How do materials react to fire?
What is a fire lab? What new construction materials are being researched? The UPC is using computer simulation to achieve safer, more sustainable buildings.
Video An underground that never breaks down?
Is it possible to predict mechanical and electrical failures in the motors of Barcelona’s underground? A team of young entrepreneurs has designed an artificial intelligence system to do just that.
Video Can simulating human movement help the disabled?
Can human movement be analysed to design devices that help people walk? The UPC is researching how the human body moves in order to model it. The goal is to design new devices to help disabled people walk.
Video Noiseless, vibration-free buildings?
Is it possible to predict the acoustic consequences of structural design in the fields of construction and civil engineering? How are noise and vibrations transmitted?
Video Bacteria that can cause miscarriages?
How can a type of bacteria commonly found in wet environments, such as pools, cause a miscarriage? How do pregnant women become infected?
Video Hydrogen-producing plants?
Is it possible to obtain hydrogen from a chemical reaction? The UPC uses catalysts with nanometric particles to obtain hydrogen from renewable fuels.
Video Waterpoof and fireproof cardboard?
A new, highly resistant, mouldable, porous material that is both fireproof and waterproof and is made out of recycled paper and cardboard: a glimpse of the future? The UPC has already created it.
Video A virtual assistant to fight tumours?
The UPC is designing an intelligent system to provide support for the diagnosis of brain tumours in order to help doctors improve diagnoses in clinical oncology.
Video Will mobile coverage problems soon become a thing of the past?
The UPC is leading a European project to create the technology of future mobile networks: WiMax and LTE.
Video At the frontier of Moore’s Law?
How can a single chip perform trillions of operations per second? Will Moore’s Law hold? The UPC is leading a European project to design the computer memory of the future.
