The Irish government has launched a major new strategy to maximise the scientific, economic and social potential of Ireland’s significant marine resources.
Sea Change: A Marine Knowledge, Research and Innovation Strategy for Ireland 2007-2013 will support a range of capability and capacity enhancements designed to exploit core scientific strengths and deliver new commercial opportunities and policy options.
As part of this strategy the recently announced Beaufort Marine Research Awards will deliver €20 million in research funds to establish world class marine research groups in five areas. The Beaufort Awards target research leaders of international standing and mobile early stage researchers from Ireland and abroad to fill the following posts:• 4 Principal Investigators (7 year Contracts)
The research groups/centres are located in five Institutions on the Island of Ireland (32 counties) and have demonstrated capacity to conduct innovative research and provide research training.
The following are the research groups/centres supported:
ECOSYSTEM APPROACH TO FISHERIES MANAGEMENT• Ecology & Evolution Research Cluster, School of Biological Sciences, Queen’s University Belfast

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
