Invitation to the Micro B3 Final Conference from 2 to 4 November 2015
Royal Flemish Academy for Science and the Arts,
Hertogsstraat/Rue Ducale 1, B-1000 Brussels (Belgium)
Micro B3 is a large integrative European Project, which is processing large amounts of data from worldwide marine research campaigns with modern bioinformatic methods.
This instigated a new understanding of the diversity of marine plankton. In cooperation with biotechnologists novel opportunities are explored, how to utilize these small organisms while safeguarding marine resources.
Furthermore, Micro B3 developed international standards to enable the trans-disciplinary use of a range of different existing databases. These standards were mainly tested during the ‘Ocean Sampling Days’ (OSD), a Micro B3-initiated activity joining scientists and interested citizens worldwide.
The Micro B3 project includes 32 Partner from 14 European countries and the international organisations EMBL-EBI, ICES, IUCN and CIESM.

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...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
