That is the subject of a debate article written by Chalmers President Stefan Bengtsson.​</b></p><div>For many years, Chalmers has carried out research at a world-class level. Many other Swedish universities operate at this high level, and there are intensive collaborations taking place across all sorts of different research projects. Digitalisation has made collaboration and joint projects easier, but in Sweden the development of digital infrastructure, or e-infrastructure, allowing universities and industrial partners to work effectively, has been lacking. </div> <div><br /></div> <div><img src="/SiteCollectionImages/20220101-20220630/Datatrafiks%20elanvändning_350x220px.jpg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="C3SE research infrastructure at Chalmers" style="margin:5px" />What is missing? In practical terms, a coordinated investment in optimised digital tools for tasks such as data transfer, large-scale calculations, analysis, storage and open access to research data for reuse and investigation. To a certain extent, these functions are already available for universities, but through individual actors – broad collaboration and a national strategy are absent. This results in inefficient resource usage and worse conditions for research.  </div> <div><br /></div> <div>Large investments in research-connected e-infrastructure are currently underway throughout Europe. Sweden needs a united voice in this international context, and an investment that meets the ambitions we see on the continent. </div> <div><br /></div> <div>A digital infrastructure for research is, in short, a key requirement for continued successful research at Chalmers and other universities around the country, and consequently, Swedish competitiveness and innovation. The question is already on the government agenda, with the results of an <a href="https://www.regeringen.se/rattsliga-dokument/statens-offentliga-utredningar/2021/08/sou-202165/" target="_blank" title="www.regeringen.se">investigation carried out by special government investigator Tobias Krantz</a> presented in August 2021. </div> <div><br /></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial">But in that report, several legal matters are raised to be investigated, which ultimately will lead to delays and a longer timetable. </span><span style="background-color:initial">What we at Chalmers and other research-heavy universities need now is action. A new ministry, with an overall responsibility for Swedish e-infrastructure. This decision should be taken as soon as possible. </span><br /></div> <div><br /></div> <div>Together with other leaders of Swedish universities, I am encouraging the government to act in a <a href="https://www.nyteknik.se/opinion/tolv-svenska-universitet-akut-behov-av-ny-myndighet-7027189" target="_blank" title="Ny Teknik">debate article in Ny Teknik</a> (Swedish only). I urge you to read it. This is about the future of Swedish research. </div> <div><br /></div> <div><strong>Stefan Bengtsson, President and CEO, Chalmers University of Technology </strong></div> <div><br /></div> <div><br /></div> <div><div><em>Photos: Anna-Lena Lundqvist</em></div> <div><em>Illustration: Yen Strandqvist</em></div></div> ​Thu, 13 Jan 2022 14:00:00 +0100https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/tme/news/Pages/Unequal-access-to-home-delivery-services.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/tme/news/Pages/Unequal-access-to-home-delivery-services.aspxUnequal access to home delivery services<p><b>​The pandemic has revealed large variations in the accessibility to goods via online home delivery services. Those who may have the greatest need – such as the elderly in rural areas – have the least access. However, the new research from Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, also shows a distinct improvement during the pandemic.</b></p><div>​The Covid-19 pandemic has increased the demand for home delivery of various types of goods, pharmacy products and food. But access to the services is not equal. The new study from Chalmers, published in the scientific journal Transport Policy, shows that marginalized groups have less chances of using online home delivery services.</div> <div> </div> <div>&quot;The results confirmed that online home delivery services were designed for homogeneous market segments, such as urban young citizens with medium to high income&quot;, says Associate Professor Ivan Sanchez-Diaz, who directed the study together with colleagues Associate Professor Ceren Altuntas Vural and Professor Árni Halldórsson at the Department of Technology Management and Economics.</div> <div> </div> <div>The research was conducted as a regional case study in Sweden. Selected geographic areas were linked to demographic indicators of the population, such as age, citizenship, education level and income. The data was later analysed together with the geographical coverage of logistics service providers during two occasions – the first wave of the pandemic in the spring of 2020 and the third wave of the pandemic in April 2021.</div> <div> </div> <div>&quot;The data from the spring of 2020 showed a market failure. Lack of accessibility to online home delivery services was determined by the location, which was compounded with certain demographic characteristics: older population, lower income and lower level of education&quot;, says Ceren Altuntas Vural.</div> <div> </div> <div>The proximity to a major city is a factor explaining accessibility. However, there were some areas within the city municipality with low access, and that tend to overlap with older population, and lower income. Simultaneously, some zones with high income outside the municipality have acceptable access to home delivery services.</div> <h3 class="chalmersElement-H3">Improvements during the pandemic</h3> <div>The second data set from April 2021 indicated that the coverage was improved, so there were some learnings from the pandemic. After the first two waves of the pandemic, the main changes were seen in pharmacies that went from 62% to 99% of coverage in home deliveries, and food that went from about 40% to 60% in coverage. In terms of parcels, small logistics players grew significantly both in scale and in scope of their home delivery services.</div> <div> </div> <div>&quot;This study shows the necessity of an inclusive service design. Logistics service providers and companies that want to provide home delivery services to their customers should not think that ‘one size fits all’. They need to increase focus on social sustainability and make sure that the services are designed in a way that enables accessibility to goods, even if the social status or location of certain customer groups lead to some market disadvantages&quot;, says Árni Halldórsson.</div> <h3 class="chalmersElement-H3">Lessons for companies and society</h3> <div>The researchers present some key learning points from the pandemic that can help companies to design more inclusive services:</div> <ul><li>Offering non-digital alternatives for payment, as not everyone has access to digital ID or payment services.</li> <li>Deliveries to pick-up points, although more efficient and environmentally sustainable, can be a challenge for people with limited mobility or when there is a risk of contagion so they may not be sufficient in terms of access to goods. </li> <li>Retailers and pharmacies should coordinate with different logistics companies to find ways to reach all customers at home in a cost-effective way. Also, when conditions do not allow for a cost-effective home delivery service, there should be a public or social organization that enable home delivery for the vulnerable population. </li></ul> <div> &quot;The study's conclusions are also important for policy makers, particularly for those who design public services for the elderly or people with certain disadvantages. There are a lot of potential synergies between business logistics activities and public services. A collaboration between these actors might yield to more inclusive and efficient home delivery logistics services&quot;, Ivan Sanchez-Diaz concludes.</div> <div> </div> <div>The researchers will continue their studies, including a greater focus on inequality in home deliveries of food.</div> <div> </div> <div><span><img src="/sv/institutioner/tme/nyheter/PublishingImages/leveransforskare_750x340.jpg" alt="Forskarna vid Chalmers" style="margin:5px" /><br /><em>The researchers </em><span><span></span><em>Ivan Sanchez-Diaz, Ceren Altuntas Vural and Árni Halldórsson, Department of </em></span></span><span><span><span><em>T</em><span style="display:inline-block"></span><em>echnology Management and Economics</em></span></span></span><span><span><em>, Chalmers.</em><br /></span> </span><br /></div> <h3 class="chalmersElement-H3">About the study<span></span></h3> <div>The researchers conducted a case study in Västra Götaland region of Sweden.

We foresee that the project outcome can open up for new categories of Swedish seaweed products on the market.”</p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><strong>Why is this research important?</strong></p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P">”We are in the middle of a dietary protein shift where consumers seek more sustainable and healthy protein sources to fully or partly replace red meat. Green seaweed species are promising candidates based on their relatively high protein contents, and their important micronutrients such as vitamin B12 and marine omega-3. Further, seaweed production does not compete for arable land nor require fertilizers, pesticides, and freshwater irrigation. On the contrary, seaweed can remediate nutrient-rich waters, which is a property BLUEGREEN takes advantage of in the new Ulva cultivations. We believe that the project outcome can be of great use for the emerging seaweed industry in Sweden.” </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div>

We will use genetic engineering to control which types of carbohydrates the bacteria can digest, and what industrially relevant molecules they can simultaneously produce −​ and then let them grow on residual products from the forest or agricultural sectors.</p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><strong>Why is this research important?</strong></p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P">“This research is important since the molecules we will produce within the project are currently produced from fossil resources.

A shift toward production and consumption of foods with lower environmental impacts such as plant (green) and aquatic (blue) foods is necessary to promote sustainability of our food system. This transition is hindered with low efficiency in the production step, purified ingredients, unfavourable taste of plant proteins, overpressure on aquatic resources, low diversity of plant alternatives and low consumer interest toward them.

shifting meat and fish to plant-based protein. For sustainability reasons, many young women have increased their consumption of plant-based foods and have reduced their consumption of meat. Today about one fifth of all young women are vegetarians. Just like children, young women are a risk group regarding lack of micronutrients, mainly iron, zinc, vitamins B12 and D. This is because meat and fish are an important source of such nutrients. We will study how this dietary change affects the nutritional status of pregnant women and their children during the breastfeeding period. We have established mother-child birth cohort (NICE), which we will investigate. Since every third teen girl suffers from iron deficiency, we also do clinical studies to compare iron uptake from meals based on plant, fish or meat protein. Meat substitute products have become increasingly popular and several new such highly processed products are on the market. However, there is not sufficient knowledge about the nutritional value in the products. We will examine the nutritional value and estimate the bioavailability of iron and zinc in these often textured products. We suspect that the bioavailability of these micronutrients is low and that the content of saturated fat and salt is too high in most cases.&quot;</p> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><strong style="background-color:initial">Why is this research important?</strong></p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P">&quot;The project provides knowledge about how the protein shift affects nutritional status for women and young children in Sweden. The opportunity for Swedish raw materials, from field beans and cod side streams, will be examined and we will evaluate plant-based protein products on the market. The project provides evidence for updating nutritional recommendations for women regarding vegetarian foods. The research will also contribute to the development of products with high nutritional value for risk groups and can present the need for enrichment of certain nutrients. The project is an interdisciplinary collaboration between Chalmers, Karolinska Institutet and Sahlgrenska Academy and it connects food science, nutrition science, clinical studies, and risk analyses.&quot;</p> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><br /></p> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><br /></p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> </p> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <p class="chalmersElement-P"> ​​</p>Wed, 12 Jan 2022 10:00:00 +0100https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/chem/news/Pages/Competence-centers-in-Catalysis-and-Nuclear-technology-receive-support.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/chem/news/Pages/Competence-centers-in-Catalysis-and-Nuclear-technology-receive-support.aspxCompetence centers in Catalysis and Nuclear technology receive support<p><b>​The Swedish Energy Agency has allocated a total of 600 million SEK to eleven destinated competence centers for sustainable energy systems.

This has not made waiting for the Energy Agency’s decision less nervous for Magnus Skoglundh, Professor at the Department for Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, and Director for the center. He is shining in a contagious joy, when he talks about the news and what it means for the center.</span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><div> </div></span></div> <div>“It has been a fierce competition, and we have been preparing for two years.

The use of catalytic technology is essential for several of our critical sustainability issues. Therefore, competence and research within this field, is vital if we shall succeed in the transition to sustainable systems for transport, chemical and material production, and energy conversion.<br /><br /></div> <div> </div> <div><img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Institutioner/KB/Generell/Nyheter/anslag%20kompetenscenter%20Katalys%20och%20kärnenergi/Magnus%20Skoglundh%20200x200.jpg" alt="portrait Magnus Skoglundh " class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" style="margin:5px" />“The main property of a catalyst is that it lowers the energy barrier required for the reaction to take place. Instead of 300 degrees, it can for example proceed at room temperature, Magnus Skoglundh explains.”<br /><br /></div> <div> </div> <div>In the upcoming period, the center will focus on greenhouse gases to a greater extent than emissions, which they are already strong in. Further, the research on synthesis and production of fossil-free energy carriers will increase. Electrocatalysis is a large part of the center’s work and development of fuel cells, which is an important component for the future fossil-free society. They will also introduce a completely new part - energy efficient and greener chemical industry. The center has many exciting research projects underway. Right now, they are for example working on reducing nitrous oxide emissions, where they are internationally leading.</div> <div> </div> <div><br /></div> <div> </div> <div>One of the center's most important purposes is to train skilled engineers, licentiates, doctors and senior researchers, who can implement what they have learned in the industry. The collaboration with the business community has been ongoing from the start. Today, there are eight member companies in the competence center. At Chalmers, researchers in chemistry and physics have been included and now it will be further broadened with researchers in energy system analysis​.<br /></div> <div> </div> <h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">Premiere for nuclear technology support </h2> <div> </div> <div>Among the Swedish Energy Agency's designated competence centers, there is also research and competence in nuclear technology. It is the first time that the agency supports competence and research in this area. The competence center, which has been named ANItA (Academic-Industrial Nuclear Technology Initiative to Achieve a Future Sustainable Energy Supply) is led by Uppsala University, aims to support the development of small modular nuclear power reactors in Sweden. The project will primarily be focused on current reactor technology, but a significant part will also be about the foundation for future nuclear energy systems.

I remember I read it in my late teens, back when I was about to move out of my parents' house, and I was feeling nervous about the journey ahead, so it just remained in my mind. </span><div><br /><span style="background-color:initial"></span><div>Now, I'm in the second half of my twenties, and it seems like I've jumped off more cliffs than I can count, and, though I'm now a bit older, I don't think I'll be done anytime soon. So, in the spirit of welcoming a new year, I will share some of the things I've learned so far in my almost year and a half of living in Sweden and studying at Chalmers as a student from Mexico:</div> <div><br /></div> <div><b>I can do more things than I thought I could…</b></div> <div><img src="/SiteCollectionImages/education/Student%20Life/Student%20Blogs/5_things-Picture,%20Size%20350px%20x%20305px.png" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:340px;height:297px" />This year has been an extremely busy one: apart from working on my thesis (<a href="/en/education/studying-at-Chalmers/stuamb/Pages/3-things-I-like-about-writing-my-thesis-at-Chalmers.aspx" title="Read my blog about my master's theis at Chalmers">read more about that here!​</a>), I've been balancing being a digital ambassador, a part-time job, and<a href="/en/education/studying-at-Chalmers/stuamb/Pages/Is-it-important-to-speak-Swedish-and-how-can-you-learn-it.aspx" title="Read my blog about swedish classes"> Swedish classes</a>. The better part of the year has consisted of doing lab work or reading papers during weekdays and then, starting Friday, spending my weekend working at my job as a waitress. When I'm not in Swedish class, I write blogs or host our Instagram channel We are Chalmers. Younger me would think you'd have to split into two to do everything I manage to fit into a week, but now I'm starting to think that I'm a pro at it!</div> <div><br /></div> <div><b>… but I have limits, and it’s okay…</b></div> <div>I am, after all, human, and I don't have endless energy resources, and my priority as a student will always be my thesis work. So, if I want to remain level-headed and do a good job, it's only smart to learn how to distribute my energy and say no to activities that might throw me off balance. Like a lot of you, I've always been a very active person, so this has been the hardest lesson for me to learn. Be it an extra shift at the restaurant when I have a social event planned or an invitation to hang out when I'd rather sleep in, I've learned that it's important to ask myself twice before committing to a plan that might affect my energy detrimentally.</div> <div><br /></div> <div><b>… still, off-time is every bit as important as work</b></div> <div>I feel like I'm coming off as a workaholic in this blog, and though it just might be slightly true, it's essential to be aware that, as master's students, we are not our work, and we are not the grades we get in our courses. We are people, complete with interests, hobbies, and a need to share our time with people who enrich this experience we call life. Although I already knew it, I have learned that off-time isn't only valid so that you can rest up and keep working the next day; it's another very fulfilling way to keep growing as a person Like a quote from the movie The Shining (&quot;All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy&quot;). Most importantly, joining groups or clubs will bring you close to people who have similar ideas to yours, which brings me to my next point.</div> <div><br /></div> <div><b>You will find a family anywhere you are</b></div> <div>One of the hardest parts of studying far away from home is leaving your family behind. I am from Mexico, so it's complicated for me to fly home as it's so far away, and the current world situation (I'm sure we're all tired of the word that starts with a &quot;p&quot; and ends on &quot;andemic&quot;, so I'll leave it off), has not made that easier. It's easy to feel lonely living in a new place where you don't know anyone, but it doesn't mean you should be lonely. Nobody will replace my family back home, but the wonderful, caring, talented people whom I've met in my time here have helped me not feel lonely. A place like Chalmers is filled with like-minded people who have also left their home countries and whose ambitions are similar to yours, and that is way stronger than any language or cultural differences you might have with other people. <span style="background-color:initial">Coming out of your comfort zone is scary at first, but it can become the most remarkable thing you've ever done.</span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><br /></span></div> <div>Although I've lived by myself for all of my twenties, this is the longest I've been so far away from home. I left a well-paying job, a great apartment in a place where I could easily visit my family and the culture I was born within to come to a place that's utterly different from the situation I was living in. Still, I'm amazed at how much I've grown in just a year and a half, and I'm excited for the future opportunities that being here has opened up for me. If I had the chance to do it all over again (the anxiety, the sadness, the happiness, the laughter, the fun, and all the work), I wouldn't change anything.</div> <div><br /></div> <div><img src="/SiteCollectionImages/education/Student%20Life/Student%20Blogs/Student%20Ambassadors%20Pictures%20-%20Authors/Abril_studentblog.jpg" alt="Abril" class="chalmersPosition-FloatLeft" style="margin:5px" />​</div> <div><br /></div> <div><br /></div> <div>Author: <a href="/en/education/meet-chalmers/connect-with-student/Pages/default.aspx?unibuddy=buddies/students/5fcf4e54ffd52f015226e403" title="Chat with our students">Abril​</a></div></div>Mon, 27 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +0100https://www.chalmers.se/en/centres/cva/news/Pages/its-that-time-of-the-year.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/centres/cva/news/Pages/its-that-time-of-the-year.aspxChristmas greeting<p><b>​​It’s that time of the year...</b></p>... when we should slow down, gather with family or friends.

The European Space Agency is looking into the implementation and use of new materials to enable new applications for space. Polymers and polymer composites specially are part of such focus among others. However, the benefit of new functionalities or capabilities brought by materials shall be assessed against their behaviour under the effect of space environment. Effect of space environment (VUV, Thermal Cycling, ATOX) on the functional performance of advanced thermoplastics materials (PolyEtherEtherKetone-PEEK) focusing on electrically conductive PEEK processed by additive manufacturing will be presented. The results obtained on this material mechanical, optical and electrical performances be presented including demonstrator enable by such material and process combination. The effect of the process and its relation with the material on the final part performance will be discussed as well showing the importance of having a standardised approach to enable accurate part qualification. The recent advances on the use of 4D printing concepts suitable for space application will be exposed and discussed with an emphasis on the role of meso-structuration.

The monomeric ink is extruded from a print head onto a heated bed triggering the frontal polymerization (FP) reaction. Heat released from the polymerization activates adjacent monomer to further the curing process, thereby forming a self-sustaining propagating reaction wave that polymerizes the printed filament. The stiff polymerized segment of the filament can structurally support the printed part during its fabrication to produce three-dimensional (3D) free form printed structures with excellent fidelity. Fabricated parts exhibit a degree of cure of 99.2% and do not require further post-processing.  The addition of nanoparticles and other reinforcement phases allows access to a range of rheological profiles between low-viscosity liquid and free-standing elastomeric gel – all of which frontally polymerize upon thermal activation. This presentation will summarize the characterization of ink rheology for printing, influence of printing parameters, addition of reinforcing fillers, and the resulting mechanical properties of the printed structures.</span></li></ul></div>Wed, 22 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +0100https://www.chalmers.se/en/news/Pages/Millions-from-the-Swedish-Energy-Agency-to-Chalmers-centers.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/news/Pages/Millions-from-the-Swedish-Energy-Agency-to-Chalmers-centers.aspxMillions from the Swedish Energy Agency to Chalmers centers<p><b>​When the Swedish Energy Agency distributes SEK 600 million to eleven different competence centers for sustainable energy systems, Chalmers is behind more than half of the centers that are granted funding.
