Frontex, EFCA and EMSA present the results of the pilot project „Creation of a European coastguard function”

The Closing Workshop of the pilot project „Creation of a European coastguard function” gathered more than 110 participants from various European and national entities at the premises of the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) in Lisbon. During the event the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex), the European Fisheries Control Agency (EFCA) and EMSA jointly presented the project results.

The 18 months pilot project was launched in January 2016 in order to provide the test bed for the co-operation mechanism proposed by the Commission within the framework of the European border and coastguard package.

The Executive Directors of the three European agencies agreed that the project had demonstrated that there was greater effectiveness when the agencies worked together. The sharing of information, combined use of surveillance capabilities, multipurpose operations can better support the national authorities of European Member States when implementing coast guard functions.

In the framework of the project the three Agencies explored and tested ways to further enhance their cooperation in four areas:

  • sharing of information generated by fusing and analysing vessel movement and earth observation data
  • providing surveillance and communication services based on state-of-the-art technology
  • capacity building
  • capacity sharing including multipurpose operations and the sharing of assets and capabilities across sectors and borders

The enhanced cooperation among EMSA, EFCA and Frontex will enable them to support in an effective and cost-efficient way the activities of more than 300 civilian and military authorities in the EU Member States responsible for carrying out coastguard functions in a wide range of areas such as maritime safety, security, search and rescue, border control, fisheries control, customs control, general law enforcement and environmental protection.

The future of prostheses
Engineers working to add “muscle sense” to prosthetic limbs found that tactile feedback on the skin allowed blindfolded test subjects to more than double their ability to discern the size of objects grasped with a prosthetic hand. The results will be presented next month in Germany by researchers from Rice and the Research Center “E.Piaggio” of the University of Pisa and the Italian Institute of Technology. Marcia O’Malley, professor of mechanical engineering and computer science, and/or graduate student Janelle Clark are mentioned.

The material first created at Rice in 2012 is essentially a three-dimensional carbon surface that provides abundant area for lithium to inhabit. James Tour, the T.T. and W.F.

Rice scientists have created a rechargeable lithium metal battery with three times the capacity of commercial lithium-ion batteries by resolving something that has long stumped researchers: the dendrite problem. The battery stores lithium in a unique anode, a seamless hybrid of graphene and carbon nanotubes. The material first created at Rice in 2012 is essentially a three-dimensional carbon surface that provides abundant area for lithium to inhabit. James Tour, the T.T. and W.F. Chao Professor of Chemistry, professor of computer science and of materials science and nanoengineering, is mentioned.

NATIONAL/INTERNATIONAL

The future of prostheses
Engineers working to add “muscle sense” to prosthetic limbs found that tactile feedback on the skin allowed blindfolded test subjects to more than double their ability to discern the size of objects grasped with a prosthetic hand. The results will be presented next month in Germany by researchers from Rice and the Research Center “E.Piaggio” of the University of Pisa and the Italian Institute of Technology. Marcia O’Malley, professor of mechanical engineering and computer science, and/or graduate student Janelle Clark are mentioned.

New cell technology … 3 or 15 times today’s energy density
Rice scientists have created a rechargeable lithium metal battery with three times the capacity of commercial lithium-ion batteries by resolving something that has long stumped researchers: the dendrite problem. The battery stores lithium in a unique anode, a seamless hybrid of graphene and carbon nanotubes. The material first created at Rice in 2012 is essentially a three-dimensional carbon surface that provides abundant area for lithium to inhabit. James Tour, the T.T. and W.F. Chao Professor of Chemistry, professor of computer science and of materials science and nanoengineering, is mentioned.
