(Press-News.org) Korea Electrotechnology Research Institute (KERI) and Research Institutes of Sweden AB (RISE) have officially entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) aimed at enhancing collaborative research in the field of national strategic technologies. The signing ceremony took place at RISE in Stockholm, Sweden on Friday, September 15, 2023.
RISE, recognized as Europe’s largest state-owned research institute, is composed of 30 private and government-funded research institutes, along with more than 130 government-designated testing agencies. It also boasts a workforce of approximately 3,500 employees. As demonstrated by the recent signing of MoUs with various Korean organizations such as Korea Automotive Technology Institute (Katech), Korea Evaluation Institute of Industrial Technology (KEIT), Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI), and Korea Marine Equipment Research Institute (KOMER), the institute is solidifying partnerships within Korea.
Through this MoU, KERI and RISE aim to strengthen cooperation in multiple domains within the field of national strategic science and technology. This includes joint research initiatives, collaborative lectures and workshops, and the exchange of both talent and information.
Notably, RISE has been at the forefront of research in silicon carbide (SiC) power semiconductors and amassed extensive experience in successfully commercializing this groundbreaking technology with global companies. This expertise is set to unlock significant synergies in collaboration with KERI.
President Kim, Nam-Kyun of KERI remarked, “I have maintained close contact with RISE since my days as a researcher and have been inspired by RISE’s advanced technology.” He also reaffirmed his commitment to making “this MoU an exemplary case of cooperation in science and technology between Korea and Sweden.”
KERI is a government-funded research institute operating under the National Research Council of Science and Technology, an affiliation of the Ministry of Science and ICT in Korea. <KERI>

Study finds the placenta holds answers to many unexplained pregnancy losses
New Haven, Conn. — Yale researchers have shown that placental examination resulted in the accurate pathologic determination of more than 90% of previously unexplained pregnancy losses, a discovery that they say may inform pregnancy care going forward. The findings were reported Sept. 19 in the journal Reproductive Sciences. There are approximately 5 million pregnancies per year in the United States, with 1 million ending in miscarriage (a loss occurring prior to 20 weeks of gestation) and over 20,000 ending in stillbirth at or beyond 20 ...
Keeping Vilsmeier reagent in the flow: From toxin to medicine in one go
The Vilsmeier reagent is necessary for producing a large range of pharmaceuticals, but its unstable nature and toxic precursor phosgene are challenges for its use. A new process that efficiently produces phosgene, the Vilsmeier reagent and the desired products in one flow is poised to make the industry greener and safer. For the production of many active pharmaceutical ingredients, a chemical called Vilsmeier reagent is necessary, but it is extremely unstable. That's why it is produced on-site and on-demand wherever possible. In addition, the currently used methods for producing the ...
How does smoking tobacco and cannabis affect depression risk?
People who use both cannabis and tobacco have significantly higher rates of depression and anxiety than those who use either substance alone or not at all, according to a new study by UC San Francisco researchers. The study, published Sept. 13, 2023 in the online journal PLOS ONE, comes amid expanding legalization of cannabis products, resulting in more dual use with tobacco nationwide. Earlier studies relied on data collected before the legalization trend, prompting the need for a new analysis. Understanding the association between the use of both drugs and mental health ...
Researchers find association between vaping and asthma among US adolescents
A new study from the Texas A&M University School of Public Health suggests that vaping increases the risk of asthma in adolescents who have never smoked conventional tobacco products. Vaping, or the use of electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes), among adolescents has grown dramatically over the past several years. Although e-cigarettes have fewer toxins than regular cigarettes, they still contain a mixture of harmful chemicals and raise the risk of respiratory diseases. In this new study, which was published in Preventive Medicine, researchers analyzed data from a national survey of youth to ...
New blood marker can identify Parkinsonian diseases
Researchers at Lund University are publishing their findings in the prestigious journal Nature Aging. The marker in question is called DOPA decarboxylase (DCC). In the current study, DCC was found to be elevated in individuals with Parkinson's disease as well as in people with other diseases that result in dopamine deficiency in the brain. However, the marker was normal in other brain diseases such as Alzheimer's disease. The researchers even noticed that DCC was elevated in individuals with Parkinson's many years before they developed any symptoms. ”We ...
MSU researchers receive 12 million- grant for drone biometric recognition system
Images EAST LANSING, Mich. – Michigan State University researchers received a $12 million, four-year federal grant from the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity, or IARPA, under its Biometric Recognition and Identification at Altitude and Range, or BRIAR, program. The IARPA BRIAR program is a 48-month effort to deliver end-to-end software systems capable of detecting individuals at severe imaging conditions, extracting biometric signatures from the whole-body (such as an individual’s gait and/or body shape) and face, and fusing biometric information for robust multi-modal matching. The MSU project ...
Weight loss? ‘Nuting’ to worry about with almonds
When it comes to weight loss, nuts can get a bad rap – while they’re high in protein, they’re also high in fats, and this often deters those looking to shed a few kilos. But new research from the University of South Australia shows that you can eat almonds and lose weight too. In the largest study of its kind, researchers found that including almonds in an energy restricted diet not only helped people to lose weight, but also improved their cardiometabolic health. Examining the effects of energy restricted diets supplemented with Californian almonds or with carbohydrate- rich snacks, researchers found that both diets ...
Patients visiting emergency departments because of alcohol abuse are more likely to make return visits and to die in the following decades
Barcelona, Spain: People who come to emergency departments with alcohol-related diseases or conditions are more likely to make return visits and to die in the following 20 years, than people who come to emergency departments for other reasons, according to new research. For many, this means they may die in their 40s or 50s. Professor Drew Richardson told the European Emergency Medicine Congress that he and his colleagues had followed 194 patients who had alcohol-related diagnoses when they arrived in the emergency department of The Canberra Hospital ...

Sylvester study shows that new protocols enable many patients to safely return home just one day after lung cancer surgery
MIAMI, FLORIDA (Sept. 18, 2023) – Thoracic surgeons and researchers at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine found that increasing numbers of patients undergoing cancer-removal lung surgery by “anatomic lung resections” – lobectomies or segmentectomies – are able to go home safely and without complications one day after the operation, thanks to growing rates of robot-assisted surgeries and improvements in patient-centered care protocols. However, the research team found, patients of lower socioeconomic status were considerably ...
