This image bank has been designed by Andalusian Programme of Scientific Spreading of the Andalusian Ministry of Innovation, Science and Enterprise, and is coordinated by the Science Park of Granada.
Sciencepics is, in terms of volume of images, the first regional image bank in Spain. Sciencepics aims to become a useful tool to complement the various spreading and training actions carried out both by education centres (from primary education centres to universities), mass media and science and innovation spreading agents.
Sciencepics will provide visual support for scientific-related knowledge in digital (websites, CDs, etc.) or in print format.
Sciencepics is very easy to use- Images are grouped using as a reference the sectorial classification of research groups in Andalucía: Agriculture and Nutrition, Life Sciences, Health Sciences and Technology, Natural Resources and Environment, Economics, Social Sciences and Law, Humanities, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, Production Technologies, and Information and Communications Technologies. To download the images, users only need to key in the desired terms in the search engine.
Sciencepics contents are free, open and universal, and complement the Andalusian Programme of Scientific Spreading as a news agency since last 9 January. This service -also free of charge- already has 1,800 subscriptions for the Spanish version and 2,000 for the English version.
Sciencepics aims to be a cooperative tool, which can evolve thanks to contributions from other institutions and private individuals. The Andalusian Programme of Scientific Spreading will update the portal weekly. It will also be open to other institutions willing to share their image catalogues. To this end, a CD containing the selected photographs must be sent to the Andalusian Programme of Scientific Spreading.

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...
Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...
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...
