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.

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.
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...
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...
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...
