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: Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.

Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
