AETIONOMY organizes knowledge about dementia to develop new drugs and therapies
In January 2014 the AETIONOMY consortium started a project aiming to develop a new way to classify Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. The 5-year-project is funded by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), a joint undertaking between the European Union and the pharmaceutical industry association EFPIA. The new classification will be generated using data derived from a wide range of new biological approaches and will be based on the underlying causes of the disease.

Fraunhofer SCAI to turn heads (& manufactured parts) with the new PackAssistant
SANKT AUGUSTIN. The most important new feature of the software is that tapered components can be now packed much more closely. If, for example, several cones are packed into a container, a great deal of free space remains between the cones. If the user turns every second cone upside down, the gaps can be filled extremely well. This is what PackAssistant performs automatically in the new version.
