Across all regions, in more than three quarters of cases deaths were preceded by at least one end-of-life decision. (Image: Istock.com/LPETTET) Today, almost two thirds of deaths in Switzerland are foreseeable due to old age or terminal illness. This means that difficult end-of-life decision have to be made.
EPFL, PME Magazine and Le Temps are hosting a new type of forum aimed at supporting innovation in Swiss small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs).
An e-bike fueled with hydrogen instead of electricity? No, this is not a utopia, but reality: industrial gas specialist Linde has developed a hydrogen pedelec equipped with a compact fuel cell instead of the usual battery. Florian Freund was inspired by the invention for his Matura thesis: He developed a prototype with which the hydrogen e-bike can be refuelled safely at the H 2 filling station on the Empa mobility demonstrator move.

In January 2018 the first pan-European database for secondary raw materials, including many "critical" ones, went online. Ever since, we have known more about which raw material depots reside in cars, batteries and electronic devices sold, used and stored in the 28 EU countries - and ultimately recycled or disposed of.

Chronical allergic diseases of dogs and horses can now be treated with an innovative vaccine. It was developed by an international research team led by he University of Bern and in cooperation with the University of Zurich, together with private enterprise companies. The findings obtained in horses and dogs could lead to similar herapeutic vaccines for humans.
Scientists from the Universities of Bern, Zurich and Oxford as well as the Latvian Biomedical Research & Study Centre led by Prof. Martin F. Bachmann (University Clinic of Rheumatology, Immunoloy and Allergology, University of Bern) have developed a new therapeutic vaccine technology based upon enhanced virus like nanoparticle conjugates.
Abionic, an EPFL spin-off, has just brought in 20 million francs in its third funding round. The company's rapid allergy test can now be used to detect sepsis as well.

Paraplegic rats walk again in response to neuroprosthetic rehabilitation that allows the brain to elaborate new routes so that motor commands about walking, swimming and even climbing staircases reach spinal cord execution centers below the injury. With the help of robot-assisted rehabilitation and electrochemical spinal cord stimulation, rats with clinically-relevant spinal cord injury regain control of their otherwise paralyzed limbs.
Virtually all mental health disorders come with difficulties in interpersonal relations that in the long run negatively affect the progression of the disease. The associated health an social restrictions can only be marginally improved by current forms of therapy. One of the reasons for this is that there has been very little research into the basic neurobiological principles and in particular the neurochemical mechanisms of these kinds of disorders.
