The final projects of Ivan Caño, graduate in Physics, Remei Escudero and Sergio Campos, graduates in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, were awarded respectively a second and third prize, and a special mention in the first edition of the Dresselhaus Award of the Catalan Society of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (SCN2).
Juan Borrego and Marc Codina, students at the School of Engineering, received an award of excellence in a world competition of applications for FPGA reconfigurable devices with a system that automatically recognises mushrooms through photos taken with a mobile device.
With this new platform, the university aims to encourage social participation and advance in finding solutions to the challenges faced by today's society. The three first crowdfunding programmes included a study to promote new lines of research to discover antibiotic-producing bacteria, an archaeological dig in Egypt and a campaign to help refugees continue their university studies.
