Silk's Unique Properties Present Possibilities for Future Technologies

Silk's Unique Properties Present Possibilities for Future Technologies

Silk makes an important biomaterial, because it does not generate an immune response in humans and promotes the growth of cells. It has been used in drug delivery, and because the material is flexible and has favorable technological properties, it is ideal for wearable and implantable health monitoring sensors.

Modular Facade Supplies Buildings with Renewable Energy

Modular Facade Supplies Buildings with Renewable Energy

The rate of renovation in the building sector is still too low to achieve the energy transition by the target date set by the German federal government. However, increased use of prefabricated components can help accelerate this process. Researchers are developing a facade module that integrates the technical building equipment and supplies it with renewable energy to heat, cool and ventilate the adjoining rooms.
