Nowadays oral diseases are one of the most prevalent chronic diseases in the main developed countries, representing a 10% of medical expenses. The infections caused by bacteria present in the tooth roots are one of the biggest problems of endodontic treatments. The methods currently used for cleaning and disinfecting tooth roots do not guarantee their effectiveness.

Dihydropyrimidinones (DHPMs or Biginelli products) are a family of compounds with a wide range of biological activity. Many of them present pharmacological activity in very different health disorders such as arrhythmia, urinary incontinence, depression or sleep disorders, as well as acting as antihypertensive agents, calcium channel modulators, melanin concentrating hormone receptor (MCHR1-R) antagonists or anticancer agents among others.

The new technology developed by the Spanish University helps to tackle the adverse effects that the discharge into the aquatic environment of organic micropollutants may cause on animals, plants and people. Among these micropollutants there is a group of substances of natural and anthropogenic sources (e.g. pharmaceuticals, pesticides, cosmetics and personal care products, flame retardants, hormones and other industrial chemicals) that have the ability to alter the functions of endocrine system and, therefore, have adverse effects on an organism or its progeny.

Offers
A Spanish university has developed a new method to produce graphene, one of the most promising materials developed during last years. Due to its physical properties graphene has a wide range of applications: semiconductors, electronics, battery energy or composite industry. The new method consists in rubbing the powder of a material selected from graphene, boron nitride, molybdenum disulfide or tungsten disulfide between two substrates. A sheet of a few strips is formed on at least one of the substrates.

Plagues of terrestrial mollusks, such as slugs or snails affect significantly intensive crops. According to some studies carried out in UK, slugs attacks represents the third problem in cereal crops, with an estimated loss of 10.000 – 17.000 Ha and a loss in potatoes crops around 50.000 Tn/year. There is a wide variety of pesticides that kills terrestrial mollusks, but it is desirable to reduce their use due to the concern of the governments about reducing this kind of products (ecological and human health problems) and the concern of the population about consuming ecological products.

New device for precise thermal detection.

Offers
A Spanish university has developed a new device for accurate sensing of small temperatures. Devices for sensing small temperatures (below 0.01 K) are scarce and based on more complex architectures than the one developed by the Spanish university. This new development consists of a thin-film of magnetometallic material without complex circuitry. Such material in presence of a magnetic field generates an electric voltage in response to a temperature variation. The voltage can be measured and therefore it is possible to obtain information about local variations of the temperature.

Offers
Marine environments are emerging as a source of new natural products of pharmacological importance and coral reefs have revealed themselves as a medium that should be investigated to discover structurally unique natural products with biomedical relevance. Due to the increasing need for new antitumor agents with improved activity, fewer undesirable side effects and greater selectivity compared to the current drugs in use in the fight against cancer, it is necessary the development of new antitumor agents with improved pharmacological properties.

Buccal fixing device for athletes that simulates training at altitude

Offers
As it is known, altitude training is the practice by some endurance athletes of training for several weeks at high altitude where partial pressure of oxygen is significantly lower than that at sea level. Presumably this practice makes the performance of athletes -whether their strength, speed and/or endurance- improve markedly when competing at lower altitudes. Since suitable locations for training at altitude are scarce and expensive some systems and devices to simulate training at altitude have been developed (e.g. altitude simulation room, training masks, etc.).

Requests
A Spanish SME is specialised in the industrial production of graphene on silicon carbide (GSiC) with experience on electronic device fabrication. The company is currently preparing a project proposal for the next Eurostars call (Eureka initiative in the frame of H2020 program) together with a German university and a German research centre. This German/Spanish consortium aims to develop a graphene based portable platform (optical and electrical measurements) for bio-detection (virus, proteins, molecules, etc.).
