Your Engineering Inspiration for Thursday 01 October 2020

Although much in the way of research and education has been put on hold due to the ongoing lockdown, there are a number of competitions open for entrants in science and engineering. Here are a few picks:
  • Health Security & Pandemics - How can communities around the world prepare for, detect, and respond to emerging pandemics and health security threats?
  • Alaska 2 Image Steganalysis - A challenge based on detecting secret data hidden within digital images.
  • E&T Innovation Awards 2020 - For standout people, projects, and organisations in engineering and technology (with awards available across 16 categories).
Competitions relevant for you will be delivered along with the rest of your tailored content (depending on your preferences). Alternatively, you can follow our Competition Twitter to be updated on competitions in all areas.

Very best,

Salt crystal grows legs to avoid slippery surface
28th September 2020 - Listed in:
Salt crystals can grow tiny legs to lift themselves away from certain hydrophobic surfaces, chemists from the Netherlands were surprised to find. This self-lifting behaviour could have implications for designing building materials that avoid damaging salt crystal growth. White salt...
Stability problems with basic reagents used to make carbon–carbon bonds could be creating inconsistent reaction outcomes across the world, US researchers have discovered. Scientists at Scripps Research in La Jolla and Bristol Myers Squibb (BMS) in New Brunswick have shown...
Researchers in South Korea and the US have borrowed a strategy traditionally used in photovoltaic devices to enhance a battery concept that generates an electric current from beta particles. The team behind the work say it is a step towards...
Researchers at CRANN and the School of Physics at Trinity College Dublin in Ireland have discovered that a novel material can act as a super-fast magnetic switch. When struck by successive ultra-short laser pulses, this material exhibits ‘toggle switching’, which...
Airbus is forecasting the first zero-emission commercial aircraft will take to the skies by 2035 as it unveiled computer-generated images of hydrogen-powered planes that could pave the way for a carbon-free future. The European aerospace manufacturer on Monday released images...
