The conference aims to explore the dynamics of existing and emerging forms of urban gardening in Europe and beyond. This is timely in the wake of the contemporary and projected social, economic and environmental changes and challenges faced by cities. Urban gardens, particularly traditional allotments, have been part of the city; however, with the emergence of community and modern pop-up to rooftop gardens, they are becoming permanent and prominent part of the urban and suburban landscape.
Creating healthy and inclusive cities, which are environmentally sustainable and economically affordable in an ever more urbanizing world, are vital challenges...15.07.2016 | Read more

Members of the international council of the future accelerator facility FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research in Europe) and the supervisory board of the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research have responded very positively to current developments at FAIR and GSI. At their most recent meeting in Darmstadt, delegates of the nine partner countries who are realising the new large-scale research institution alongside Germany welcomed FAIR’s organisational restructuring and the further development of the strategy for the facility’s construction. They said they saw important milestones for the future in this strategy and expressed their full support for the plans.
Following the FAIR Council’s decision in late September 2015 on the overall scope of the FAIR facility, the management team in Darmstadt was able to begin...11.07.2016 | Read more
Is quantum technology the future of the 21st century? On the occasion of the 66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, this is the key question to be explored today in a panel discussion with the Nobel Laureates Serge Haroche, Gerardus ’t Hooft, William Phillips and David Wineland. In the following interview, Council Member Professor Rainer Blatt, internationally renowned quantum physicist, recipient of numerous honours, and Scientific Co-Chairman of the 66th Lindau Meeting, talks about what we can expect from the “second quantum revolution”.
Blatt has no doubt: quantum technologies are driving forward a technological revolution, the future impact of which is still unclear. Nothing stands in the way...30.06.2016 | Read more
At the beginning of July in Leipzig, several hundred international experts in monitoring biological diversity will advise how the enormous gaps in knowledge about global biodiversity can be closed. Background: The signatories of the UN Convention on Biodiversity (CBD), which includes Germany, have committed to halt the damage to biodiversity by 2020 and to reverse the trend. Without data this internationally binding goal can not be implemented efficiently and still less verified.
The first conference of this kind was initiated by GEO BON, an international organisation which concerns itself with monitoring and collating global...28.06.2016 | Read more

Transparent electronics devices are present in today’s thin film displays, solar cells, and touchscreens. The future will bring flexible versions of such devices. Their production requires printable materials that are transparent and remain highly conductive even when deformed. Researchers at INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials have combined a new self-assembling nano ink with an imprint process to create flexible conductive grids with a resolution below one micrometer.
To print the grids, an ink of gold nanowires is applied to a substrate. A structured stamp is pressed on the substrate and forces the ink into a pattern. “The...
A new Fraunhofer MEVIS method conveys medical interrelationships quickly and intuitively with innovative visualization technology
On the monitor, a brain spins slowly and can be examined from every angle. Suddenly, some sections start glowing, first on the side and then the entire back of...
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Ames Laboratory have discovered an unusual property of purple bronze that may point to new ways to achieve high temperature superconductivity.
While studying purple bronze, a molybdenum oxide, researchers discovered an unconventional charge density wave on its surface.
Munich Physicists have developed a novel electron microscope that can visualize electromagnetic fields oscillating at frequencies of billions of cycles per second.
Temporally varying electromagnetic fields are the driving force behind the whole of electronics. Their polarities can change at mind-bogglingly fast rates, and...
Breakup of continents with two speed: Continents initially stretch very slowly along the future splitting zone, but then move apart very quickly before the onset of rupture. The final speed can be up to 20 times faster than in the first, slow extension phase.phases
Present-day continents were shaped hundreds of millions of years ago as the supercontinent Pangaea broke apart. Derived from Pangaea’s main fragments Gondwana...
