According to the "The Rail Journey 2020" study, long-distance European rail traffic will increase by about 20 percent by 2020, and passenger numbers will exceed 1.36 billion.
Ensuring that this amount of mobility will be available in future is one of the major challenges of our times. An efficient long-distance railway...01.04.2014 | Read more

Each year, HIV and Tuberculosis cause millions of deaths. Coinfection – the simultaneous infection with both pathogens – is continually on the rise, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa, but also at tremendously increasing speed in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Due to multidrug-resistant Tuberculosis efficient control has become virtually impossible in many areas. Costs of implementing existing interventions already culminate in 1,6 billion US$ per year as the World Health Organization (WHO) reports. Hence, faster and more efficient counter-action against these global killers is mandatory.
On invitation of the Koch-Metchnikov-Forum and the World Health Summit, about 70 experts from 10 countries will meet in Berlin on March 20 and 21, 2014, to...10.03.2014 | Read more
The event ΣYSTEMS INTEGRATION, initiated by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, takes place in the Netherlands for the first time. Since 2008, the successful event series has been providing the opportunity for manufacturers and users to exchange ideas about intelligent applications of microtechnological solutions.
On June 17, 2014 the established symposium will focus on “Automation in the production and application of microfluidic devices in chemistry and biotechnology”.05.03.2014 | Read more
A pair of supermassive black holes in orbit around one another have been discovered by an international research team including Stefanie Komossa from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany.
This is the first time such a pair could be found in an ordinary galaxy. They were discovered because they ripped apart a star when ESA’s space observatory...
The tropical disease malaria is caused by the Plasmodium parasite. For its survival and propagation, Plasmodium requires a protein called actin. Scientists of...
The first MRI scan to show 'brown fat' in a living adult could prove to be an essential step towards a new wave of therapies to aid the fight against diabetes and obesity.
Researchers from Warwick Medical School and University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust used a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) based method to...
Japanese researchers have successfully developed the world's first imaging method for visualising the behaviour of nicotine-adenine dinucleotide derivative (NAD(P)H), a key coenzyme, inside cells. This feat could ultimately facilitate the diagnosis of cancer and liver dysfunction and help to elucidate the mechanisms of neurological disorders.
A Japanese research team led by Drs. Hirokazu Komatsu and Katsuhiko Ariga of the International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics, in collaboration with...
A team of computer scientists, mathematicians and geophysicists at Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) and Ludwig-Maximillians Universitaet Muenchen (LMU) have – with the support of the Leibniz Supercomputing Center of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities (LRZ) – optimized the SeisSol earthquake simulation software on the SuperMUC high performance computer at the LRZ to push its performance beyond the “magical” one petaflop/s mark – one quadrillion floating point operations per second.
Geophysicists use the SeisSol earthquake simulation software to investigate rupture processes and seismic waves beneath the Earth’s surface. Their goal is to...
