Masters and PhD courses in bioenergy have been introduced at a lightning pace over the last five years. A 2005 study by Bioenergy NoE found that 55 out of the 60 Masters courses teaching bioenergy surveyed in Europe began between 2000 and 2005.
These new opportunities for bioenergy education and training come at just the right time to help fill some of the hundreds of thousands of jobs that will be created if bioenergy use meets the EU targets. The European Commission’s 2005 Biomass and Biofuels Action Plan predicted that at least 250,000 new jobs will be created in bioenergy by 2010 if Europe meets its targets to increase energy from biomass.
The “Bioenergy Education and Training Pavilion” offers universities a one-of-a-kind opportunity to promote their course at the 15th European Biomass Conference and Exhibition from 7-11 May 2007. It is the largest bioenergy event in the world, with over 1,200 participants from 70 countries expected to attend.
To take advantage of this offer, the programme(s) must be devoted to bioenergy, and universities simply have to:- Reserve a place for your poster in the pavilion to Crystal Luxmore
The pavilion has limited exhibition space. To secure a place, any university interested in taking part should contact Crystal Luxmore – email@example.com – to express their interest by 28th February 2007.

Spectrally narrow x-ray pulses may be “sharpened” by purely mechanical means. This sounds surprisingly, but a team of theoretical and experimental physicists developed and realized such a method. It is based on fast motions, precisely synchronized with the pulses, of a target interacting with the x-ray light. Thereby, photons are redistributed within the x-ray pulse to the desired spectral region.
A team of theoretical physicists from the MPI for Nuclear Physics (MPIK) in Heidelberg has developed a novel method to intensify the spectrally broad x-ray...
Physicists working with researcher Oriol Romero-Isart devised a new simple scheme to theoretically generate arbitrarily short and focused electromagnetic fields. This new tool could be used for precise sensing and in microscopy.
Microwaves, heat radiation, light and X-radiation are examples for electromagnetic waves. Many applications require to focus the electromagnetic fields to...
Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers
Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...
Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.
At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...
3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects
