UK scientists are creating a smartphone app to help farmers tackle the pests that destroy their crops – and it could have a major impact on the way information about the natural world is gathered, stored and accessed worldwide.
UK scientists have launched a clinical investigation which could eventually help millions of osteoporosis sufferers by harnessing pioneering ‘nanokicking’ technology – using tiny vibrations to turn stem cells into healthy bone.
The world’s most sensitive science experiment may be about to get even better, with the UK allocating funds for new research and development work.
The United Kingdom government is investing nearly £10 million in a joint project with the United States to harness existing particle physics research techniques to remotely monitor nuclear reactors.
In the UK there are more than 4.5 million drivers over the age of 70, and, on average, 1 in 10 of them will have an accident during a year.
Scientists and engineers in the UK are working to use ideas from advanced space technology to improve the lives of farmers and reduce food waste in developing countries.
Due to a warmer climate and a lack of technology, expertise and infrastructure, up to 40% of food in developing countries can be wasted, with much of this waste being fresh produce.
An international collaboration of scientists and engineers, including many from the UK, have submitted its Conceptual Design Report (CDR) for the Future Circular Collider (FCC).
UK scientists, as part of an international team, have helped to design and build a prototype particle detector that aims to unlock some of the mysteries surrounding rare cosmic rays that enter Earth’s atmosphere from deep space.
A number of STFC-supported researchers have been honoured for significant achievements in astronomy and geophysics by the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) in its annual awards.
A team of UK scientists are applying technology developed for space research to help tackle the amount of ammonia that the farming industry releases into the atmosphere and try to make farming more efficient
