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.

Results reveal how discoveries may be hidden in scientific “blind spots”

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”...

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

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...

Im Focus: Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

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...
