This new Horizon Europe project, coordinated by FUNDITEC, will involve the participation of 18 partners from 9 countries seeking to protect potato plants against pests spreading by means of resistance genes characterization, pre-harvest innovative treatments, and post-harvest sustainable solutions. The objectives are: 1) Characterize at molecular level the ecological pest spread pathway and identify potato disease resistance varieties against Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum (CLso) and postharvest pathogens as F. sambucinum, C. coccodes, H. solani.2) Provide effective
Detecta has relied on artificial intelligence, the digital twin and black box environments to create a working environment that can predict both physical incidents and cyber-attacks. Industry 4.0 has accelerated the digitization of productive operations, fostering a remarkable increase in productivity to serve the decentralized economy of the post-covid era. This paradigm shift towards hyper-connected systems has put the maintenance function and the sustainability of manufacturing processes to the test with new risks, not only
In the final stretch of the Detecta project we want to transfer in a direct and close way, in interview format, the contributions made during the project by the members of the consortium. This is a series of interviews in which Álvaro García, from CIDAUT; Tomás Castro, from AEI Ciberseguridad; Olga Chacel, from FACYL; José Félix Ovejero, from Industrias Maxi; and Alejandro Echeverría, from Funditec, have talked about aspects such as the advantages of the
One of the actions included in the Detecta project is the investigation of the Digital Twin concept in industrial manufacturing environments, using non-intrusive physical-digital characterization techniques to support a hybrid approach applied to predictive maintenance and cyber-security tasks through the detection of anomalies. In this research process, it is concluded that digitization gives the production process several analysis capabilities that enable continuous process improvement. However, changes on an industrial scale require the identification of intelligent
The DETECTA project, funded by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism, which investigates non-intrusive methodologies supported by 4.0 enabling technologies to address predictive maintenance and cybersecurity in industrial environments, continues to advance. One of the latest actions carried out in this field is the realization of a study on enabling technologies for predictive knowledge and industrial security thanks to the collaboration of FACYL and AEI Ciberseguridad partners, from which we can advance some preliminary

Funditec, in collaboration with Carbon Waters, our NewSkin OITB partner, develop anti-corrosion graphene additives for polyurethane paints

NewSkin OITB partners Carbon Waters and FUNDITEC have been working in collaboration to develop graphene additives for both water and solvent-based polyurethane paints. The barrier properties of graphene make it possible to protect against corrosion more durably! The initial tests (Tafel and EIS) carried out show that polyurethane paints formulated with Carbon Waters additives, protect metals surfaces from corrosion for longer times than the reference topcoat. In addition, compared to other carbon additives such as
