A hard Brexit could result in a family of four seeing their food prices increase to up to £50.98 per week researchers at the University of Warwick have found. If we leave with a deal the increase could be as little as £5.80 per week, or £18.17.
Fancy tasting ice cream made with liquid nitrogen, building a wind turbine or dancing like a sound wave? Youngsters with a passion for science will be able to enjoy some real-life experiments at the University of Warwick’s Science Gala next week.
Infectious diseases could be detected, prevented and controlled thanks to a new £4m grant from the NIHR to the University of Warwick. Researchers will work with partners to develop the use of cutting edge genomics to protect public health.
The project will develop and utilise computational techniques based around the simulation of large ensembles of “particles” to allow us to estimate and quantify our uncertainty. These techniques will be combined with models inspired by modern machine learning, particularly utilising deep Gaussian processes to describe the profile of atmospheric pollutants as they evolve over time.
The public science festival, Pint of Science, kicks off next with experts from the Universities of Warwick and Coventry talking about their research work in a selection of pubs and venues around the Coventry and Leamington Spa.
