Planes, satellites and other aerospatial objects are subject to high pressure and vibrations related to speed and climatic conditions. Therefore, it is important to try and predict the response of the materials. Nolisys, the new spin-off from the University of Liège has created a piece of software able to do this: the first in the world.
CYTOMINE develops an “intelligent” IT program for analysing images of cells and tissue to help with the assessment of new treatments and with the anatomopathological diagnosis of lung cancer.
Tiwouh is the first human and social sciences spin-off from the University of Liège created 10 years ago. The company operates an alternative or augmentative communication software solution for speech therapists/speech pathologists as well as people with communication and language disorders - including autism spectrum disorders - and their families.
Intelligent lighting units installed on each urban lighting unit detecting road users, determining their type (vehicle, cyclist, pedestrian) anticipate their needs and exchange to create a light bubble accompanying the user at their speed. The exclusive SmartNodes technology offers many benefits
Natacha Delrez, a PhD student in veterinary medicine at ULiège, won the international final of the Ma thèse en 180 secondes (My Thesis in 180 seconds) competition with her presentation "Once upon a time there was the eel, the virus and the firefly". The young researcher, now an FNRS graduate in her third year of her thesis, is interested in the infection and spread of a herpesvirus in European eels (anguilla anguilla).
Olivier Absil, astronomer and frs-FNRS Research Associate with the STAR Institute, has been awarded a second research grant - an ERC Consolidator Grant - by the European Research Council, for his EPIC (Earth-like Planet Imaging with Cognitive computing) project.
Professor Damien Ernst will receive the Blondel Medal awarded each year in France by the Société de l’Électricité, de l’Électronique et des Technologies de l’information et de la communication (SEE) in recognition of outstanding research work in the field of science and the electrical industry in the broad sense (telecommunications, electronics, electrical networks, etc.).
