EU projects – Technology Scouting – Business Innovation

New technology lets scientists see, touch and smell on the nanoscale

Yesterday, the European Commission published in its Success stories information about a successfully finished UNIVSEM – Universal Scanning Electron Microscopyproject, which combined ‘seeing’ thanks to a scanning electron microscope that uses electrons instead of light, ‘touching’ via a scanning probe microscope that drags a tiny pin-like stylus over the surface and ‘smelling’ through chemical analysis. Dr. Rudolf Fryček, CEO and founder of AMIRES gave an interview to the European Commission press, in which he, among other things, describes how a specialized project management can free up project partners to focus on the research and technical side, which was key to the success of the UNIVSEM project.
