  • Developing a robotic therapist for children

    Robot terapeuta / UC3M

    UC3M | 20 April 2015 10:00

    In collaboration with other national institutions, researchers at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) are designing a new therapeutic tool for motor rehabilitation for children. In this project, an interactive social therapist robot, which is totally autonomous, is able to perceive patients’ reactions and determine if they are doing their exercises correctly.

  • Analizan cómo será la computación ultraescalar del futuro


    uc3m | 05 September 2014 13:00

    Dos centenares de científicos de más de cuarenta países investigan cómo serán los sistemas ultraescalares de computación de próxima generación en el marco de NESUS, una de las mayores redes de investigación europea de este tipo coordinada por la Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M).

  • Only 16% of Ph.D.s work in the private sector in Spain, half the OECD average


    UC3M | 17 June 2014 10:50

    Spain produces Ph.D.s at levels comparable to other countries in its situation. However, a minimum percentage of these degree holders work in the private sector, which entails problems for funding research. This is one of the conclusions of the study El empleo de los doctores en España y su relación con la I+D+i y los estudios de doctorado (Employment of Ph.D.s in Spain and its relation to R+D+...
