Purdue launches partnership with Greek universities and business chamber, deepens collaboration with European semiconductor hub in Belgium
Purdue University continues to broaden and widen its global footprint with the signing of a series of Memoranda of Understanding with four leading research universities in Greece, at a time when the U.S. and Greece enjoy a very strong relation. The STEM-focused MOUs mark the fourth international partnership that Purdue has announced over the past three weeks. A fifth MOU also was signed between Purdue and the American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce, whose primary focus is to promote and foster economic and business relationships between the United States and Greece.
Treatment creates steel alloys with superior strength and plasticity
A new treatment tested on a high-quality steel alloy produces extraordinary strength and plasticity, two traits that must typically be balanced rather than combined. Ultra-fine metal grains that the treatment produced in the outermost layer of steel appear to stretch, rotate and then elongate under strain, conferring super-plasticity in a way that Purdue University researchers cannot fully explain.
Emergent Solar Energy starts the engines on Abel Construction’s 210-kilowatt, roof-mounted solar project
Emergent Solar Energy, a leading provider of renewable energy solutions, has launched its latest commercial project, a 210-kilowatt, roof-mounted solar installation, at the Indianapolis headquarters of Abel Construction Company, near the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Purdue agrivoltaic farming structures and software harvest solar power at lower cost and with minimal impact on crop yield
Purdue University researchers have improved upon traditional solar energy structures used in agrivoltaic farming, a sustainable system that generates electricity from the sun while row crops like corn, rice, soybeans and wheat concurrently grow on the same land.
Purdue biology innovation allows the introduction of valuable traits in plants without creating transgenic plants
Academic researchers and companies in the agricultural biotechnology sector will be able to use a patent-pending Purdue University biology innovation to introduce valuable traits to plants without integrating novel DNA into a plant’s genome.
Purdue signs landmark U.S.-Japan agreement in semiconductors at G7 summit
Purdue University continues to be the world leader in creating vital partnerships in semiconductors.
