In the course of 2003-2004, the Research Council of Norway organised a foresight analysis for Norwegian aquaculture. All in all, more than 70 people took part in a systematic dialogue about the future. The information presented here represents a very brief summary of an exhaustive report containing detailed analyses from the Foresight project: Aquaculture 2020: Transcending the Barriers - As long as...
In the course of 2003-2004, the Research Council of Norway organised a foresight analysis for Norwegian aquaculture. The analysis was carried out in cooperation with Innovation Norway and with professional support from NIFU STEP. A broad-based project group comprising representatives from industry, research and the authorities was responsible for implementation of the process. All in all, more than 70 people took part in a systematic dialogue about the future. In the course of four sessions, a wide variety of perspectives emerged, and key persons from all aspects of the industry as well as from a number of the industrys most significant associated institutions came together in a creative and interesting dialogue about future developments. A report compiled during the process will provide a source of knowledge and inspiration for everyone interested in Norwegian aquaculture or in helping to shape its development.

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...
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...
Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...
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...
