International Conference: "Transport and Environment: A Global Challenge - Technological and Policy Solutions"

23.02.2007
Who?
-----
Janez Potocnik, European Commissioner for Science & Research Roberto Formigoni, President of Regione Lombardia
What?
------
International Forum on new regulatory approaches to control air pollution, with special emphasis on transport, Press Conference, Scientific sessions, Visit to Laboratories
When? Where?
--------------
Tuesday, 20 March 2007: New Fiera Milano, Exhibition and Convention Centre, Milan, Italy

Wednesday, 21 March 2007: Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, Ispra Italy

At this conference, world-renowned international scientists will come together with policy decision makers to debate future policy options designed to deliver a healthier environment, sustainable transport, economic growth and industrial competitiveness. This comes at a time when the European Commissioner for the Environment has announced ambitious plans to cut CO2 emissions from cars, reinforced by solid fundamental research conducted throughout Europe under the auspices of the Commissioner for Science and Research.

This Conference is being organised at a crucial moment for Europe, when the preparations and implementation of key EU and international legislation related to the environment is expected in the near future. New legislation on the horizon covers a wide range of topics including: new air quality standards, transport, EURO 5-6 and EURO VI emission standards for Light Duty and Heavy Duty vehicles, Fuel Directive Review, the strategy to promote biofuels and other alternative fuels (H2), etc.

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

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...

Nano-hologram paves way for integration of 3-D holography into everyday electronics

An Australian-Chinese research team has created the world's thinnest hologram, paving the way towards the integration of 3D holography into everyday...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

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...

Biofilms: Researchers find the causes of water-repelling properties

Dental plaque and the viscous brown slime in drainpipes are two familiar examples of bacterial biofilms. Removing such bacterial depositions from surfaces is...

Im Focus: Hydrogen Bonds Directly Detected for the First Time

For the first time, scientists have succeeded in studying the strength of hydrogen bonds in a single molecule using an atomic force microscope. Researchers from the University of Basel’s Swiss Nanoscience Institute network have reported the results in the journal Science Advances.

Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe and is an integral part of almost all organic compounds. Molecules and sections of macromolecules are...
