Bioenergy education takes off in Europe

26.01.2007
The Bioenergy Network of Excellence (NoE) is inviting any European university offering a Masters or PhD programme in bioenergy to take part in an education and training pavilion at the world’s biggest bioenergy event this Spring in Berlin – free of charge.

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
- Provide a A0 size poster describing your activities
- Provide suitable literature for visitors to take away
Bioenergy NoE will organise and set up the stand and provide personnel to greet visitors.

The pavilion has limited exhibition space. To secure a place, any university interested in taking part should contact Crystal Luxmore – c.s.luxmore@aston.ac.uk – to express their interest by 28th February 2007.

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

Im Focus: Scientists decipher key principle behind reaction of metalloenzymes

So-called pre-distorted states accelerate photochemical reactions too

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
