The WATERBIOTECH-Conference “Biotechnology for Africa’s sustainable water supply” in Marrakesh (Morocco) from January 8-10 2014 will bring together members of WATERBIOTECH consortium in conjunction with national and regional decision makers, water professionals, scientists and practitioners.
The International Conference “Biotechnology for Africa’s sustainable water supply” is the closing event of WATERBIOTECH project, a Coordination Action supported by the European Union under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). In the course of the WATERBIOTECH project, a consortium comprising international partners is developing a practical approach using biotechnology as a simple and cost-effective method for wastewater treatment in Africa. WATERBIOTECH
The event includes the presentation of scientific papers related to relevant aspects of water management, water treatment and water supply in Africa as well as discussion panels and workshops. The scientific conference is complemented by a commercial exhibition showing the state-of-the-art in biotechnology for water treatment. Development in Africa needs bottom-up approaches in which the necessities of all actors are taken into account as WATERBIOTECH project has pursued.
The network between Africa and Europe resulted from WATERBIOTECH project has led to mutual learning experiences. The intention of this conference is to extend this fruitful cooperation to all participants of this conference and widely disseminate the results of WATERBIOTECH initiative.

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.
In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
