In the context of the EU-funded project COBRA, Mr. Andrea Remuzzi explains the role of the Mario Negri Institute of Pharmacological Research in industrial research projects. The Mario Negri institute has a long-standing reputation for biomedical scientific research. Since its foundation in 1961, the institute has been investigating the relationship between the environment and diseases in order to develop appropriate treatments. The institute's contribution to the LOWBRASYS project is particularly crucial, since its researchers are in charge of studying the impacts of break wear particle emissions on human health and the environment.
The COBRA project is an EU-funded project belonging to the European Commission's LIFE programme. Its aim is to demonstrate a completely novel brake pad production technology which will reduce energy and water consumpion. To know more about COBRA visit: http://www.cobralifeproject.eu/
