The UJI gets the first two million Euro Consolidator Grant for producing solar cells

The Universitat Jaume I (UJI) has obtained the first Consolidator Grant of the European Research Council (ERC), endowed with 2 million Euro, for producing solar cells with different materials, such as colloidal quantum dots and perovskite halide. The lecturer Iván Mora Seró has obtained the financing of No-LIMIT in one of the most competitive European […]

The UJI describes a complex process of seawater intrusion within the aquifer of La Plana de Castelló

A team of researchers from the Universitat Jaume I (UJI) has described the formation, evolution and geometry of an upward migration of salt water of marine origin –scientifically known as upconing– which is considered the largest ever detected in a Mediterranean coastal aquifer. The results of this study, conducted jointly with the Spanish Geological and […]

Scientific vocabulary: forest fire

Pau Aragó, researcher from the Department of Mathematics at the Universitat Jaume I, describes the concept of forest fire. This video is included within the category “scientific vocabulary” that is made up of short videos in which Universitat Jaume I’s research staff provides the definition of scientific terms related to their area of expertise. Video […]

More efficient risk maps of forest fires

Researchers from the Department of Mathematics at the Universitat Jaume I (UJI) have designed a statistical model of forest fire prevention that includes the risk posed by human factors, such as the proximity of the woodlands to roads. The findings of this study have been published in the European Journal of Forest Research. Video with […]

UJI researchers develop an innovative technique for the detection of food contaminants

Researchers at the University Institute of Pesticides and Water (IUPA) at the Universitat Jaume I (UJI) have developed an innovative technique for the detection and quantification of contaminants in food samples, mainly of marine origin. The system enables to know the existence of harmful toxic compounds, such as brominated flame retardants, in foods like tuna […]

Sixto Malato: emerging contaminants and water purification

The director of the Solar Platform Research Centre for Energy, Environment and Technology in Almeria (CIEMAT), Sixto Malato, has indicated that emerging contaminants (those derived from antiseptics, hormones, industrial additives, detergents, care items and personal hygiene or nanomaterials) have become one of the main challenges in the field of water purification because “we do not […]

Ciencia UJI at Radio Castellon Cadena SER: Metabolic integration and cell signalling

Professor of the School of Technology and Experimental Sciences, Miguel Cerezo, explains the work done by the Group of Metabolic Integration and Cell Signalling in which pollution and the environmental impact of agriculture is investigated through the immune system of plants and the interaction between the environment and the nitrogen metabolism in plants under biotic […]
