Euro Area Economic Growth Slows in June - EuroCOIN Gives Lowest Reading Since Dec 2001

26.07.2005


The latest value of the EuroCOIN™ indicator released by the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) shows:

- CEPR’s EuroCOIN reading for June 2005 points to a slowdown of economic activity for the 12 countries that make up the euro area. The upturn signals given for March and April have been more than offset by a decrease in the May and June readings for EuroCOIN, indicating that the direction of euro area economic growth remains uncertain.

- In the euro area, the cyclical component of quarterly GDP growth decreased from 0.329 in May to 0.242 in June. This is the lowest EuroCOIN reading since December 2001. The May figure has been revised downwards.



- The overall indicator weights signals coming from different macroeconomic variables. Interest rates, industrial production indices, financial variables, labour-related variables and surveys point to a reduction of growth, whereas interest rates give a positive signal.

- EuroCOIN figures from March 2005 are provisional and may be subject to revision:

June 2004:
0.593

July 2004:
0.518

August 2004:
0.457

September 2004:
0.470

October 2004:
0.402

November 2004:
0.412

December 2004:

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...
