To kick off World Water Day, take a look at this sustainable, non-toxic antibacterial material made from wood cellulose. Anna Ottenhall, a PhD in the School of Chemical Science and Engineering, is testing the material for water filtration in emergency situations - such as in refugee camps. It's just one example of the kind of work being done at KTH to meet the challenge of providing clean...

We kick off a celebration of women in STEM this Spring with breakthrough news from KTH researcher Elira Maksuti, the lead author in an international study that proves for the first time how hydraulic forces help the heart fill with blood. The finding could lead to new treatments for millions suffering from heart disease. [ Bit.ly Link ]
What can engineers and journalists accomplish when they join forces to attack fake news, intimidation and barriers to free expression on the internet? More than 100 people joined in a 24-hour hackathon at KTH last week to find out. We paid a visit to chat with some of the participants.
One of the more bizarre features of our planet is that within its molten iron core there is an enormous rotating crystal ball the size of the moon. Not weird enough for you? Consider this: that crystallized iron ball is hotter than the surface of the sun, yet it resists melting. A new study from KTH may finally settle a longstanding debate over how that's possible.
Aside from living together in barns, spiders and cows are two creatures that have very little in common. Yet KTH researchers reported recently that they have used milk from cows to make a material that mimics spiders’ silk. Their new technique can make artificial silk thread from all sorts of different proteins, and it could one day be used in regenerative medicine or as an alternative to...

With its expressive face and ability to make eye contact, Furhat takes the idea of a social, intelligent robot to a whole new level. Developed at KTH, the Furhat technology can be used to create robot financial advisers, teaching assistants or even companions for elderly people. Read more about the future of Furhat in our Swedish language online magazine, KTH Magazine
Sweden is introducing buses that can charge wirelessly, while the vehicle is stopped. Innovations like this make electrification of bus lines an exciting alternative for cities all over the world. KTH’s Integrated Transport Research Lab is behind a tool that transit planners can use to optimize their own electric bus systems for cost savings and environmental benefits. [ Bit.ly Link ]
