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.

A Swedish-German team of researchers has cleared up a key process for the artificial production of silk. With the help of the intense X-rays from DESY's...
For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.
According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...
An important step towards a completely new experimental access to quantum physics has been made at University of Konstanz. The team of scientists headed by...

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
