6th BMBF Forum for Sustainability "Research for Sustainability - One Step Further"

19.06.2009
The 6th BMBF Forum for Sustainability "Research for Sustainability - One Step Further" will take place 9 - 10 September 2009 at the Prototyp-Museum in Hamburg. Prof Dr Frieder Meyer-Krahmer, State Secretary to the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, will inaugurate the conference which aims at strengthening the collaboration of politics, science and industry.

The 6th BMBF Forum for Sustainability also marks the start of the new BMBF framework programme for Research for Sustainability: After five years of successful FONA research, the programme provides new thematic priorities, strengthens international collaboration and calls for an even closer interlinking of fundamental and applied research.

In this context, Prof Dr Karin Lochte, Director of the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research, will shed light on the impact of fundamental research on sustainability.

The sessions on global responsibility in sustainability research and on innovations for climate and resources will be complemented by the open final conference of the BMBF national research programme "Sustainable Forestry". "Green Talents" will present young scientists from all over the world who have developed creative and innovative solutions in the field of sustainability.

The 6th BMBF Forum for Sustainability is settled at the interface of science, industry, public authorities and politics. The conference aims at presenting best-practice examples, exploring new solutions and fostering the network of the researcher community.

The two-day scientific programme offers sessions on the following topics:

A Global Responsibility
B Innovation for Climate and Resources
C Sustainable Forestry
Furthermore, the evening events, a sightseeing programme and the "Locations of Organised Coincidence" will offer manifold possibilities for making interesting contacts and paving the way for new projects.

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...
