  • Euskirchen - at the Fraunhofer Institute for Technological Trend Analysis INT in Euskirchen, scientists from the Business Unit Nuclear Effects in Electronics and Optics (NEO) have launched a series of tests with a newly installed picosecond laser. The aim is to locate places on electronic devices that are susceptible to Single Event Effects (SEEs). SEEs occur when particles of cosmic, ionizing radiation such as neutrons or protons impact on electronic components. This can lead to temporary malfunctions or to permanent damage that makes an electronic device completely inoperable.

  • A new three-year project, funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Programme, will seek to build a system that can better respond to urgent natural and manmade crises. IN-PREP (INtegrated next generation PREParedness programme), which was launched in Athens on 27 September, will research and develop tools to respond to three urgent challenges related to transboundary crisis management: Sharing response planning across borders and agencies, improved sharing of accurate and relevant information in real time, and improved coordination of critical and scarce resources. The Fraunhofer Institute for Technological Trend Analysis INT will have the task to analyse the conditions of crises and to identify factors for an enhanced reaction.
