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

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...

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...
