Fraunhofer’s Urban Futures Conference: 2 days in the city of the future

Fraunhofer’s Urban Futures Conference, which takes place in Berlin on November 25 and 26, 2015, will offer participants a glimpse of the urban future. Scientists, engineers, politicians and economists will present new concepts for intelligent and sustainable urban innovation. The aim is to help transform our cities into clean and vibrant places to live and work.

Over half the world’s population lives in cities, and this proportion is set to rise. According to projections by the Organization for Economic Cooperation...

Gluten oder nicht Gluten? Überempfindlichkeit auf Weizen kann unterschiedliche Ursachen haben

Viele Menschen klagen über eine Unverträglichkeit auf Getreideprodukte. Doch nicht immer verbirgt sich dahinter eine Gluten-Intoleranz, und nicht jede vermeintliche Gluten-Intoleranz ist auf Gluten zurückzuführen. Auf der MEDICA EDUCATION CONFERENCE 2015, die vom 16. bis 19. November in Düsseldorf stattfindet, erklärt eine Expertin, was es mit der Nicht-Zöliakie-Nicht-Weizenallergie-Weizensensitivität, kurz NZNWWS, auf sich hat.

Warum immer mehr Menschen nach dem Verzehr von Getreideprodukten über Bauchschmerzen, Blähungen, Durchfall oder Verstopfung klagen, ist nicht genau bekannt.

AFNET and EHRA lay out roadmap to improve AF management

At least 30 million people worldwide live with atrial fibrillation (AF). Despite improved treatment options AF patients still suffer strokes, heart failures, and premature deaths. The German Atrial Fibrillation Network association (AFNET) and the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) initiated development of a roadmap to improve the quality of AF management. An international group of experts developed a set of initiatives and recommendations aimed at improving the care for AF patients. The report of the 5th AFNET/EHRA consensus conference is published online in the EP Europace journal today.

The 5th AFNET/EHRA consensus conference was convened with the focus on “Understanding and eliminating inequalities and barriers that prevent optimal treatment...

Nanocarbons clean water without the use of chemicals and transform waste heat into electricity

Scientists in Saarbrücken are working on a desalination method which does not require the addition of chemicals and which is highly energy-efficient: in the process known as capacitive de-ionization (CDI), electrodes are used to extract the ions from the water and collect them on the electrodes. The result is clean water and ions which have been enriched on the electrodes. This environmentally friendly process can even be used to generate electricity: emissions such as carbon dioxide are also suited to generating electrical energy when they are dissolved in water as ions.

When purifying waste water, chemical reactions are used or it is subjected to elaborate filtering methods to remove salts and heavy metals. Now scientists in...

Conference for Intelligent Autonomous Systems (IAV) first time in Germany

Cars, ships, planes, drones or rockets – all types of vehicles that move themselves take centre stage at the Conference for Intelligent Autonomous Systems (IAV) 2016 in Leipzig.

For engineers and computer scientists, such vehicles are no longer a vision but a reality that has not yet prevailed. “To the disadvantage for many people”,...

EHFG 2015: Securing healthcare and sustainably strengthening healthcare systems

At the European Health Forum Gastein (EHFG) 2015, several events were held focusing on the topic of sustainable healthcare systems and health system performance. As well as looking at ways of facing challenges such as multi-morbidity against the background of an aging population, the objective was among other things to explore effective implementation of optimum primary healthcare.

Across Europe, increasing importance is being attached to issues related to the efficient delivery of primary healthcare in the context of sustainable...

World Alzheimer`s Day – Professor Willnow: Clearer Insights into the Development of the Disease

Alzheimer’s disease affects approximately 35 million people worldwide, and currently one million people are estimated to be affected in Germany. With the increasing life expectancy, scientists are concerned that the incidence of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease will double in the next 25 years if it is not possible to treat the disease or prevent its onset. “We are gaining clearer insights into how Alzheimer’s develops,” said Professor Thomas Willnow of the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association (MDC) on the occasion of World Alzheimer’s Day. He hopes that these insights will lead to the development of new treatments for Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer’s researchers at the MDC pursue various approaches to better diagnose and treat the disease. Professor Willnow is searching for the genetic causes of...

Im Focus: Climate study finds evidence of global shift in the 1980s

Planet Earth experienced a global climate shift in the late 1980s on an unprecedented scale, fuelled by anthropogenic warming and a volcanic eruption, according to new research published this week.

Scientists say that a major step change, or ‘regime shift’, in the Earth’s biophysical systems, from the upper atmosphere to the depths of the ocean and from...

Im Focus: Innovative Photovoltaics – from the Lab to the Façade

Fraunhofer ISE Demonstrates New Cell and Module Technologies on its Outer Building Façade

The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE has installed 70 photovoltaic modules on the outer façade of one of its lab buildings. The modules were...

Im Focus: Lactate for Brain Energy

Nerve cells cover their high energy demand with glucose and lactate. Scientists of the University of Zurich now provide new support for this. They show for the first time in the intact mouse brain evidence for an exchange of lactate between different brain cells. With this study they were able to confirm a 20-year old hypothesis.

In comparison to other organs, the human brain has the highest energy requirements. The supply of energy for nerve cells and the particular role of lactic acid...

Im Focus: Laser process simulation available as app for first time

In laser material processing, the simulation of processes has made great strides over the past few years. Today, the software can predict relatively well what will happen on the workpiece. Unfortunately, it is also highly complex and requires a lot of computing time. Thanks to clever simplification, experts from Fraunhofer ILT are now able to offer the first-ever simulation software that calculates processes in real time and also runs on tablet computers and smartphones. The fast software enables users to do without expensive experiments and to find optimum process parameters even more effectively.

Before now, the reliable simulation of laser processes was a job for experts. Armed with sophisticated software packages and after many hours on computer...

Heidelberg physicists use ultracold atoms to imitate the behaviour of electrons in a solid

Researchers at Heidelberg University have devised a new way to study the phenomenon of magnetism. Using ultracold atoms at near absolute zero, they prepared a...
