WHAT?Conference on “Perspectives for FOOD 2030”
- What will the consumer want on his plate?
- How will the supermarket of the future look?
- Which technologies will emerge?
WHEN?17-18 April 2007 (conference starts at 10:15on 17 April)
WHERE?European Commission, Charlemagne Building, Rue de la Loi 170, 1040 Brussels, Belgium

In 2030, what will the consumer want on his plate? What will the supermarket of the future look like? Which technologies will emerge? These important questions will be addressed during the conference " Perspectives for Food 2030" on the 17 and 18 April 2007 in Brussels. The Conference will debate policy and industrial development and anticipate research needs by 2030, set against a background of the diverse and increasingly important changes facing the European food industry. Perspectives for Food 2030 comes at the outset of the "Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, and Biotechnology" theme of the new Research Framework Programme (FP7), and will provide the opportunity to assess how the food industry and consumer demand may evolve over the next 25 years and to consider what implications this may have for food, agriculture, fisheries and biotechnology research.

The Conference will be divided into four main sessions:

- Trends and Outlook in World Economics, Culture and Food;
- Drivers of Food demand and of the Market Today and Tomorrow;
- New Technologies for Food Production; and
- Future Perceptions of Food.
The conference will bring together major European and worldwide actors from the fields of food technology, retail, consumer science/behaviour, economy, etc. to gather visions of the future; including Science and Research Commissioner Janez Potocnik and Agriculture and Rural Development Commissioner Mariann Fischer Boel.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
