- Basic research on electronic component-production of the future
The latest mobile phones 5G generation shall also benefit from the following research cooperation: the Chinese Academy of Sciences and an Austrian specialist for atomic force and scanning electron microscopy are expected to carry out basic research in the production of new, miniaturized components. Miniaturization alters the physical properties of the thin films in the components. The Department of Integrated Sensor Systems is developing new methods to detect these deviations and thus ensure production quality.

- Stroke risk rises globally by 25 percent
The data published in the Global Burden of Disease Study shows an increase in the global risk of stroke in 2016. 24.9 percent of men and 25.1 percent of women are at risk of stroke. In the 1990s, the risk of stroke was 22.9 percent. In order to lower the stroke risk, better information about the risk factors and the expansion of medical care stations is necessary, according to co-author Michael Brainin of Danube University Krems.
